I love that whole portion of "On Killing", and he revisits the ideas in his other book "On Combat".  I would have to say that I am definitely a sheepdog, although I did not become one until after my world came apart.  I was active duty on 9/11, a fresh trainee from air force basic training waiting to start training as a weather forecaster.   Then the attacks happened and I realized for the first time that I could find myself deployed and have to actually take a life.  I had joined because I saw it as my duty to my country, and I would be able to us my GI Bill afterwards to pay for school.  I never deployed, but after I got out of the AF I ended up working in security and had several coworkers attacked, and I was even shot at.  I have to realize that the only person who could actually guarantee my safety was me, and it took me a long time to do so.

Long live the sheepdogs, we hunt what goes bump in the night.
