Sinking a Wrong Idea, Again

What is the purpose of the military? Every since I joined twenty years ago, I have been reminded constantly that through execution of our core expertise our job is to break stuff and kill people. Others argue that our job is to serve America. 

Yes, we are capable of many tasks and a distinct core competency, which support our military’s sole purpose: to serve America, Americans, and American national interests.

Perhaps both views are correct:
