I'm sure you know what you're talking about more than me, but I feel like crying because you lost a football game against your most hates rival for the 4th year in a row is a lot different than killing someone in combat.
Did you like Restrepo? I liked it a lot.

But there is a difference between after a football game is over, and when you are in live combat, when the offense comes off the field it's over all you have left is a bunch of time to sit and think about how you ****ed up. In live combat there isn't safe time. I think it's apples to oranges honestly.

Thank you God, thank you. So glad that the Notre Dame idiots who feel entitled to **** have something to cry about on Facebook.

Restrepo was alright.... But many military dudes (myself included) view it, then are disgusted at how that unit's leadership operated. There's a small bit in the movie where a commander states that he did no homework before getting there, "to keep an open mind". That is the first sign of trouble. When I go somewhere, I do hours and hours of research, with the knowledge that there's a possibility less than half of what I read is bull****. If someone can't keep an open mind after researching, then they just suck.

A very good friend of mine was there right after that unit left, and has crazy PTSD from it.... and had very few positive remarks about them.

Responding to both posts:

Bearing is bearing, whether at a wedding, funeral, football game, or in combat. Having a breakdown is not something you do in public, especially if you are in a leadership position. When one of our guys lost his legs from an IED, we had guys wait four hours to have their pity-parties (in private, once back from patrol). An inability to do that, and the fact that he kept crying for somewhere around 15 minutes.... That's just bad news.
