As America prepares to observe Veterans Day and President Obama weighs sending more troops to fight in Afghanistan, "Bill Moyers Journal" broadcasts a powerful documentary about the impact on soldiers of learning to kill - or be killed. "The Good Soldier" follows four veterans - one from World War II, two from Vietnam and the fourth from Iraq - as they reveal how the experiences of battle changed their lives.
