I also concede that all this is very anecdotal, but I have noticed a distinct pattern - the people who have the most to brag about usually brag the least.



Perhaps it could also be said that those who went through the horrors of real combat, sometimes had to experience things and do things that they would rather never talk about, much less brag about.
Just because I don't care, doesn't mean I don't understand.

That seems like a definite possibility to me. All I know is that my grandad was a Lance Corporal in the military police in the Second World War, and was involved in the processing of Japanese soldiers taken as prisoners-of-war. He didn't talk about it much at all, although he did counsel that the time to join the armed forces is when you have no choice in the matter.
