6. Yeah that should fix any morale problems pretty quick.
Just give each grunt a copy of Norman Vincent Peale's "The Power of Positive Thinking" along with the M16 and grenade launcher, then when their vehicle hits an IED in the road they can think positive thoughts as their legs and genitals are separated from the rest of their body.
