I just saw Captain America. It reminded me of Max Payne. I liked my own stint in the service better. This is not a substitute for spending a few years in the military. Everything that happens there can not be reduced to good versus insanity. The process of human growth from inexperience is not found in laboratory test tubes, failed scientific experiments or stoic exploits. Good training is more than inspiration and for the most part, less than heroic. War seems to teach only the wise.
