As America prepares to observe Veterans Day and President Obama weighs sending more troops to fight in Afghanistan, BILL MOYERS JOURNAL broadcasts a powerful documentary about the impact on soldiers of learning to kill – or be killed. THE GOOD SOLDIER follows four veterans – one from World War II, two from Vietnam, and the fourth from Iraq – as they reveal how the experiences of battle changed their lives. Watch a preview below.

  5. Great documentary. Soldiers are as much victims of war as anyone else, and by the time the war ends or the soldiers go home, they are traumatized, damaged properties, haunted with death; and how can they not be – for they were doing man’s worst deed: killing other people, with whom they have no personal problems, just because they are soldiers who were indoctrinated and programmed to kill, sometimes indiscriminately, presumably, for their country.
    War is man’s ultimate crime and his ultimate failure as a human being with conscience.
