Killing Haunts You (Clip 1 of 6)

In the first clip associated with the Soldiers of Conscience lesson plan, Jamie Isom, a veteran of the Iraq War, gives his perspective on killing in a combat zone and talks about how people cope with their actions back home. He recalls his own experience having to shoot a child in order to save the lives of his squadron. Students should discuss whether or not it's important for the military to train soldiers to become desensitized to killing.
