Comments

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

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

Mad Preacher : First man is a legit dude 100%

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

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

Radarping 483 : 1:01 to 1:14...You can see it written on his face, the scene unfolding within his eyes. In those 13 seconds, he was there again; in those 13 seconds he killed again.

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

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

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

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

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.

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

Brett D : My dad served in Vietnam. He was a helicopter crew chief/gunner in the 1st air Calvary. He has never really talked about his experience over there. My mom told me about an interaction she and my dad (they were just dating then) had shortly after he got back. My mom was a young hippie chick and kind of naive to the whole thing. She nonchalantly asked him one day "so did you kill anyone?" He looked at her with hollow eyes and replied "what the hell do you think?" She didn't ask about the war much after that. Crazy crazy stuff.....

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

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.

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

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

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

Elyas : *SOLDIERS DON'T CAUSE WARS, POLITCIANS DO*

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.

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

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

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!

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

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

Rudy G : The last guy was talking to ghosts

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

Andrew Emerson : Thanks for sharing fella’s and thank you for your services. I appreciate it.

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.

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

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

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

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.

Jesse97774 : How you gonna end the video like that? Damn

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.

Ginger Ninja : My Dad almost never talks about it but he fought in the Gulf, in Lebanon and in the falklands with the British army. He has only ever spoken about the gritty details to me once or twice in 30 years and only when drunk but I saw the same look on his face then as I see on this men now.

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

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.

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

M Sagri : My grandfather served as an assistant military doctor in the British Colonial Forces in the Second World War against the Japanese. One soldier from his home village died in his arms after being shot multiple times, and he often tells me about this moment to get it off his chest.

Jonah Frizzell : My Grandpa did 8 combat tours in Vietnam and never spoke about it he would say only very little about it

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

David Minogue : god bless this guy at some points he almost looks shell shocked

cheez wheel : Josh looks like Ben Shapiro with a bit of Iranian mixed in. Same mannerisms too.

wheelmanstan : People need to understand that 4 branches are all working together to kill the enemy. They're all taking part in it. So even though the up close and personal killing is obviously the most traumatic, we're all getting our hands dirty. Together we deliver the bullets and bombs that end the lives. Doesn't matter what MOS/Rate you have or what branch you're in or how many stripes you got etc, you're working in that assembly line. All that serve help pull the trigger. So yeah we gotta share the burden. Even the tax payers who think they're free of it are part of it. We want this way of life and it doesn't come free. There's always been war and there will always be war.

nestical916 : Never forget, gentlemen, thank you for your service.

BV17 : Half these idiots in the comments know Jack about Vietnam. Before you go and disrespect war veterans, do some research, alright? There were plenty of reasons why we were there. Get educated

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

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.
