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

War II, two from Vietnam and the fourth from Iraq – as they reveal how the experiences
of battle changed their lives.
