    Also Junger, War in Afghanistan (47 min):

    “Journalist and best-selling author Sebastian Junger discusses his book, “War,” an account of his time with a US Army platoon on the battlefields of Afghanistan. For one year, in 2007–2008, Sebastian Junger accompanied 30 men–a single platoon–from the storied 2nd battalion of the US Army as they fought their way through a remote valley in eastern Afghanistan. Over the course of five trips, Junger was in more firefights than he could count, as men he knew were killed or wounded and he himself was almost killed. This lecture contains graphic language.”

    Is there any evidence that someone involved in a competitive sport or game has a mental state substantially different from that of a soldier in combat?
