    Great interview. However, it reflects a sad commentary on humanity that to have a really “authentic” experience in life we have to engage in war and combat. We can, and SHOULD, have our authentic experiences outside the battlefield and war experiences. Mankind needs to manifest and enjoy profound, authentic experiences in sports, business, academia, and in the family setting, and stop this glorification of war and combat with its awful costs on so many levels, Don Conry
