A HERITAGE OF WAR, CONFLICT, AND COMMEMORATION
Guest Editor: William Chapman
Sites of war and conflict that symbolize collective loss or that served as pivotal moments in
national or global history are sometimes elevated to the status of “heritage.” Battlefields, sites
All: Here is a repost of an email that Captain (retired) Robert "Barney" Rubel, USN, sent to me on this issue after I forwarded him the discussion. Captain Rubel me to ensure everyone knew that he is "not a trained psychologist or sociologist, just a naval officer that observed some things." He is also the former Dean of the Center for Naval Warfare Studies at the Naval War College until about 2 years ago and the team lead for the Fleet Design Advisory Panel commissioned by the Chief of Naval Operations in2016-2017.
Using a possibly false distinction I picked up years ago from an anthropologist, I think, but my memory is hazy, I have conceived of warriors as people who fight on behalf of their group (tribe, clan, etc) as a function of their social structure – essentially a tribal warrior in the classic sense.
Once you get into the creation of standing armies with its members being paid to apply violence, you are no longer talking about warriors, but soldiers.
