Military training, throughout history, has required discipline.  Socrates believed that self-control could become the very foundation of moral wisdom if only we could learn how to apply it to overcoming violent passions, such as anger and hatred.   Stoicism appeals to military men and women precisely because it was inspired by ancient military values.  It’s especially relevant today because of its potential to reach many individuals who do not otherwise seek therapy or read self-help literature.  It also holds out the promise of a more lasting, perhaps even lifelong, personal transformation.
