I heard this from documentary interview of former Soviet Sniper at Stalingrad.
One former sniper was a man was in his 70's or 80s and stated he could still see the young men's faces (using the optics) just seconds before he killed them. He remembered them perfectly. I know zilch about the military, but that sounds like a pretty horrible burden to bear. Are You ready to carry that type of nightmare?
