I shared Soot's article with a friend who was an infantryman with multiple deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan. This is part of his response:

Deep and interesting. I agree and disagree to many parts of this synopsis. However, the final paragraph of this article suggests that service members want to connect and unburden themselves to civilians (I’m assuming on serious matters and not the fun “that time Fred AT4’d that goat fucker” story). That couldn’t be more incorrect because what do civilians truly understand about us? And nothing makes me more insane when a civilian asks me a question, locks in eye-contact, and attempts to have a deep and emotional moment with me on something they truly couldn’t give a shit about because if they did give a shit they would have signed up, grabbed a rifle, and stood a post
