Marcus Sextus Maxentius Augustus : In peace , sons bury their fathers. In war fathers bury their sons

Wolf Coyote : My great uncle served in WW2 he said "I never shot to kill until I realized they were trying to kill me"

Max T : Nobody: People in the comments: “ “

jeff Brown : At 70 i still remember the first i killed and the others not so much. It got too easy, it was an after thought. You were there to kill as many of them as you could in any way you could. After coming home i had trouble adjusting to civilian life. I tended to seek out other vets and couldn't relate to past friends that did not serve. I still sit with my back to the wall. Look for exits in buildings, and don't feel at ease around strangers. My blood pressure goes up when i see a doctor or in a small confined place. Semper Fi

TLake : You can tell a piece of that first guy died along with the first guy he killed, he’s traumatised

Hooli Fruli : this first veteran...when he said that to the camera, man he relieved it al over again...

Arthen : “Outside of war, it’s mostly never justified”. You won’t understand why they did those things because you’ve never been to war.

ObBVi XX Rage : Imagine if War was a polar opposite. If the Leader of the country would fistfight the other Leader of another country.

TechnicallyToxicity : “War is when the young and stupid are tricked by the old and bitter into killing each other” - Niko Bellic

paul reid : If politicans had to fight in wars, they'd end tomorrow.

Derrick Vineyard : My father is a Marine, served in Vietnam. Every 4th of July my mother would close the windows turn the AC on and turn the TV on very loud. As I grew older I learned why. Seeing my father jump and flinch at fireworks breaks my heart.

Jasmin Masic : "Us and them, and after all, we're only ordinary men."

Kilkenny plays minecraft and other random stuff : 1:04 you can tell he is having flash backs from Vietnam poor guy

Corn dig : “It goes from dreams and aspirations.... to nothing”, he then goes on to go into detail with that quote. That was haunting and chilling, I have never heard death summarized so perfectly. Thank you for your service.

Enazmi Sey : The first guy nearly brings me to tears, the trauma of killing a man on his psyche is so obvious, and the way he tries to justify it so he doesn’t have to feel that guilt... that’s awful.

Gurfi28 : It is fascinating to see the difference between the older vets and the young Afghanistan vet. They probably were drafted, sent into a war they didn‘t wanted to be in in the first place. The young man on the other hand probably chose to serve, to fight and go to war. I do not wanna judge any of these men for what they did and why they did it. It is just interesting to see the difference age and circumstances make when talking about the things they did.

Killa Play : Was always told never ask someone in the service if they killed someone.

William Menendez : My grandfather volunteered for the front line in Korea and he was almost killed when a grenade blew up near him and sent shrapnel into his chest that nearly missed his heart. He killed men in Korea and had to live with it for over 67 years. He got a few medals pinned to his chest and a promotion to an officer rank, but was it even really worth it? I’ll never know

Rudy G : The last guy was talking to ghosts

Daniel Morales : "Why do they always send the poor, why don't presidents fight the war?"

Raikz : Your first ever kill will always leave trauma. This is why 90% of people never forget their first kill unless they're a psychopath.

Mark the shark : You know your dead when the ______ A) Trees start to talk in Vietnamese B) Snow starts talking Finnish C) Rubble starts to speak Russian D) All of the above

Mr. Wizard : That first gentleman had what they call "A Thousand Yard Stare"! Did you see it? He had that stare after he said he could see a silhouette! That stare...I've seen it a few times in combat! Green to Blue had it right...its like a light switch being turned from on to off!

Wilder Napalm : "It's a hell of a thing, killin' a man. You take away all he's got and all he's ever gonna have." -Will Munny, The Unforgiven.

Zavid Al Rasyid : War is Sweet for those who never experience it

DoomPlague57 : Its hard to realize how fast someone could just disapear from existence

rOoKiE O : "Neither side deserves to die, really. They fight for what they believe in and you fight for what you believe in"

TerraVidz : The first guy was right it's every man for themselves.

rippen lips tv : “In war there are no winners... only survivors”

The_ToxicBadger 2 : The first dude Relieved something. He just got a burden off him. He just told people something he’s probably never told anyone. He had trouble saying it then after he said it he was relieved he was freed from that burden.

Marshal Marshall : I would like to point out that these men have great beards.

YA BOI2244 : And old man in a profession where men die young

michael craig : Thats the one thing you NEVER ask A Vet. "Did you kill someone?"

Tiel Master : Remember folks, unlike the old days, when politicians declare war, it is not them or their own kids that will fight it. They will never see the battlefield until it is on their doorstep in which they will try to run. God forgive the brave lives who were lost on such useless political conflicts and bless their souls.

Mele Nico : First guy is traumatised he relived it and has the 1000 yard stare.

Punisher - DONKS : One of my buddies said you cant treat them like real people or you will remember them and get flashbacks but if they are just a target they are nothing

Wils The Limit : You don’t realize the horrors of war until you see the effects, thank you for your service

Blake Harvey : My cousin has told me stories from when he was in Kosovo. The one that always stuck with me was when he told me about a time he cleared out a rape camp and had to beat a guy to death with his bare hands because his gun jammed. I was considering joining the army at this time and his exact words were "don't do it, in war you have to do things that will change a person and you won't like the person you become."

Kenny Wayne & Darlinda Remington III : “It is not crazy men doing insane things in war. It is sane men. Sane young boys that are dropped inside insane situations, or the daily ebb and flow of life, daily life has been replaced with blood, with fear. Stark fear, horror, muscle and mucus splattered and splattering. Like so many gallons of paint. Dropped inside all of this. They are then judged back home, By cocktail swilling coastal lefties. Safe inside there Country Clubs.” KW Remington III CIRCA. Sept 14th 1969. My Birthday.

markorevan : War is where average people either are killed or become monsters,while politicians smiling in safe places,

Chris Hansen : Never ask a veteran his first kills or any kills for that matter

Pottor Fhasz : The first thingy you must check in the video: the war they were in. In the Gulf wars, Kosovo of course they were trained professionals, they speak about their first blood lightly. But CONSCRIPTED Nam vets. They are just "regular Joes". Students, Tv repairmen, mechaninc etc.

Salmijakki : The second one looks like count Dooku

Young Grump : I don’t see how they went through with this interview. That’s tuff God bless them

Nelson's Rudolph : "I'm not saying some people don't deserve to be born....but the marines have to take them out !!"

John Milks : Yeah, death is its, crazy. In the warzone you don't really know rather a friend is really a friend. Losing a friend you trained along with. It's hard they're like family. Then maybe you take a locals friend or family because of a battle. It's something we may have had to do. Had to save our men... Or try. I worried about others well being, my team. Now that has somewhat fallen away. So far as I know everyone is still ok.. the teams.

Red River : Excellent video here. I have watched this maybe a dozen times. You all did an fantastic with this.

Devin Crum : It baffles me how a lot of vets are just sensitive, empathetic people like you or me. I always thought soldiers were big buff tough guys with no feelings, but I was very wrong. I feel like the United States military recruits lots of men and train them to kill, but don't provide them with the mental health resources they need to heal from the things they are sometimes ordered to do. That's my opinion. Thank you so much for posting this very human video

Universal _Wisdom : Not enough can be said about that first guy. I can't imagine what having a flashback of killing someone is like as you're talking about it. It really marks a deep memory in those moments of certain death.
