"Failure of nerve"? 

I think this is one of the best blog posts I've ever seen. Maybe it helps to know what kind of blogger Tacitus is and what kind of community liberals and conservatives have found together in the comments to his site. But I think the post speaks for itself to some extent. And as a commentator pointed out, doesn't it take considerable courage to go through with this scene?
I made my decision: upon arrival at my battalion, I went to my new S-3, a major, and had a frank talk with him. Look, I said, this may surprise you, but I know you're planning on giving me a bridging platoon. That's a bad idea, sir. He squinted at me in incomprehension. I continued: Sir, I'm going to seek help for depression at the base hospital. In the meantime, sir, I think anything besides a platoon leadership would be wisest. I do not feel I would do well by my soldiers, sir.

You know what they say... 

Dog bites man -- that's not news.

Dog shoots man -- that's news.
