What do they tell the relatives of dead soldiers?

Do they become "boots" when they come back in body bags? I've been wondering for a while. And, then, among those who don't come back dead, there are the maimed -- physically, mentally and morally. What happens to their families?

And, of course, what happens to people who just happened to be in the way of their "targets", whoever those are? We always have to wonder, do they really know who they have been sent to attack? The record is not good.

Will our ninjas be able to tolerate the panicked, yet complacent country that sent them off fight? History is not encouraging on that score either?
