Christian and military?

How is it that someone can be Christian and live by the bible and the 6th commandment that says "Thou shalt not kill" and morally accept a career in the military where they know that killing people may be a requirement?


This is a real question I am asking and looking for answers and opinions from Christians and/or military. Please simply don't respond if you have anything hateful to say about either.

Then people that eat meat should not be Christians.That commandment does not specify humans.

Technically, Christians don't need to follow the old testament laws

Although technically they don't have to do the killing to eat the meat...
