Army & Air Force Exchange Service's Commander Maj. Gen. Bruce Casella, told Kotaku, "Out of respect to those we serve, we will not be stocking [Medal of Honor].We regret any inconvenience this may cause authorized shoppers, but are optimistic that they will understand the sensitivity to the life and death scenarios this product presents as entertainment. As a military command with a retail mission, we serve a very unique customer base that has, or possibly will, witness combat in real life."

AAFES will be banning DVD’s of Saving Private Ryan as well. Right?
Look at me, chiming in late again.
I’m not following your logic. Can you please explain how the ban on MoH leads to a ban on Saving Private Ryan? I get the sarcasm, but not the logic behind it.
So movies and other forms of entertainment that present realistic depictions of life and death scenarios are banned too, right?
Ok, gotcha. Makes sense now. I had read that, but it didn’t click that’s what you were referring to.
I am willing to respect the (moderate) difference in this case, though their position is out the window IMHO if they sold “The Messenger” with Woody Harrelson.
Still, I can understand not wanting to PLAY the game for those reasons, but not selling it seems a bit much.
