I would cut the younger military servicemen some slack as well. Most are trying to do the honorable thing. I see them as lost souls trying to navigate their way through all the moral contradictions presented to them without properly functioning compasses. Senior officers have no excuses however. Physical courage exists throughout the ranks in much abundance. Moral courage is lacking at the highest levels though. In fact I'd say moral cowardice flourishes there.
