This may be a new twist to add into a military fiction panel. In some circles, there are misconceptions that the military trains soldiers to be mindless killers. That is not true. Operational psychology panels and tests actually screens those traits out. There is also a misconception that everyone in the military develops PTSD--also untrue. The last numbers I saw showed that about one third develop PTSD. If you have a panel on military fiction, this may be a good/fun subject to add in.
