Most vets don't brag about the people they killed

I have a photo of my dad when he was getting one of his bronze stars (WWII) - his mom proudly displayed until the day my dad asked her to put it away at least when he was there.

I've met very few veterans who like to talk about what happened in the midst of combat.
