VETERANS ON KILLING
In World War II, only 15 to 20% of infantrymen were willing to fire their weapons in combat. In Korea, about 50% fired their weapons. In Vietnam, the figure rose to more than 90%. Army Ranger and professor of psychology, Lt. Col. Dave Grossman, chronicles the psychological warfare & systematic training used by today's military that enables our troops to kill in his book "On Killing: The Psychological Costs of Learning to Kill in War and Society." Combat veterans of Iraq & Afghanistan give personal insight to their own experiences in training, combat,& the aftermath as we follow the story of one Marine who invaded Iraq in 2003 & reaches out to other combat veterans for understanding. This full length documentary focuses on a new generation of psychological warfare, the reality of PTSD,& the gracefully hope we have to survive.
