“That was my greatest struggle as a soldier and doctor, blending the ethics of one into the ethics of the other. And that was a strained and binary ethic, one that touched the borders of love and hate, evil and good; it pitted the military dogma of killing the enemy against the religious dogma of loving the enemy. It juxtaposed death and dismemberment with rescue and healing and asked how they fit together.”
Jon Kerstetter, Crossings: A Doctor-Soldier's Story
