That's what I'm saying, unless military was going to take him seriously, he had no choice
but to put up with it, or walk off. His buddies didn't like him, his superior offered him nothing when he asked about leaving sensitive equipment. I think he was so despondent that he decided getting killed by Taliban was no worse than putting up with killing Afghans and staying among the gung-ho "dog-tags."
Heck, they never should have taken him in Army after he was discharged from Coast Guard.
