So you're committed.
To killing these people because you in your heart believe that they deserve to -- I wasn't so much committed to killing them as I was I'm committed to making sure every service member that was over there whether American or allied came home.
But as a sniper your jobs to kill them -- warn them not arrest them you have to have a certain mentality.
