Killing for a Living

Am I the only one who finds it hard to comprehend that there are people who fight wars for a living, who are paid to kill other people, who receive a wage like you and me, transferred to bank accounts which they use to buy groceries and pay the electricity and send their children to summer camp, who get holidays from killing people, and sit in airport bars at 10 a.m. with a double bourbon waiting for their flights home, who kiss their wives and pick up their daughters from school and take them to the playground like everything is okay and the world is not cracked, then get back on that plane and return to killing people?
