    Sheepdog tip of the day "Food for thought"

    Sheepdog tip of the day
    There is absolutely nothing wrong with the warriors who respond with
    guilt and nausea when they kill in combat. There is also nothing wrong with
    the warriors who are psychologically prepared to kill and do not experience
    such powerful emotions. But if you had the option, which would you choose?
    It is largely a 20th Century affectation, a modern, self-inflicted psychic
    wound, to believe that you will be mentally destroyed or emotionally harmed
    by the act of killing during lawful combat. I am convinced, based on
    interviews with hundreds of men and women who have had to kill, that if you
    tell yourself that killing will be an earth-shattering, traumatic event, then
    it probably will be. But if you do the rationalization and acceptance ahead
    of time, if you prepare yourself and immerse yourself in the lore and spirit
    of mature warriors past and present, then the lawful, legitimate use of
    deadly force does not have to be a self-destructive or traumatic event. Lt.
