War is a young man's game, JD. Old soldiers may reminisce about the battles they have fought, but in truth, they have neither the stamina nor the stomach for it. Keeping food on the table and a roof over their heads becomes more important, and you can't eat glory. Uneasy indeed lies the head that wears the crown when the people are hungry; under such circumstances revolutions are born.
