Chaplains, however, are no better trained to deal with it than clinicians, since their essential job is to patch up soldiers, albeit spiritually, to fight another day. Calling for Americans to kill only the enemy, which is what the military is already trying to do, could polish the moral sheen of that menace.

    Joe, who doesn't believe the news, hits Bill. This echoes Grossman, who concludes that the greatest cause of psychological injury to soldiers is the realization that there are people out there who really want to hurt you.
