They only seem that way because Walker is missing due to his progressively unhinged nature and is rationalizing it as super human durability. The fact is no nation on earth has that many 8 foot tall soldiers who can absorb multiple direct hits from [=RPGs=]. The Heavy shows up frequently in Walker's more obvious hallucinations, culminating in the [=HaLugoNation=]. The first heavy also appears in after a horrific white phosphorous bombardment under poor visibility conditions. So rather than absorbing whole clips and multiple grenades, Walker is simply unhinged by something in the Heavy's appearance and can't shoot straight. It's possible that the Afghanistan incident involved an IED and Walker has bad associations with EOD workers. That or it's something we weren't keyed into by the game.

What makes the White Phosphorous incident so terrible for Walker is the fact that the circumstances required him to use it, the size of the Damned 33rd gathered at the Gate made it impossible to handle them any other way. Those civilians that were burned to death were just a side effect of the fog of war, the circumstances forced his hand. In the same way I propose that back in Kabul Walker was forced to call in a danger close air strike to save his comrades from being overrun by the enemy, unfortunately allies and civilians were caught in the cross fire. In the aftermath of this air strike Colonel Konrad came onto the scene and rescued Walker who was too injured to continue fighting. When Colonel Konrad said that Captain Walker performed admirably under the circumstances he means that Walker had no other choice but to sacrifice the lives of others in order to save himself and that of his comrades. That is why Walker doesn't like to talk about the incident, he wishes that he had been strong enough to not have to use such tactics, and in the same way he wishes he never had to use the White Phosphorous.

** Or perhaps Walker was another clone of Big Boss by the Patriots, but like all the others, there was a defect. Walker, although a seemingly perfect soldier, had genes that rendered him initially ''quite'' mentally unstable. The defect grew worse and worse over time until it was practically incurable, resulting in Walker's descent into madness.

** Maybe. In some cases, The Radioman is not playing music when he said things that only Walker could know.

*** Honestly, this is just a really half-baked theory I made up on the spot. But I seriously want to think it's actually true.

* Wait, so John changed his name YEARS before the events of the game, predicting that a seemingly-impossible sandstorm would eventually overtake Dubai, and that he'd be in charge of a military force trying to evacuate any survivors, and that he'd commit atrocities to keep things under control, and that someone he'd eventually save, years after changing his name, but before the disaster in Dubai, would be put in charge of a recon team, but would also be mentally unstable, AND that events would somehow mirror Heart of Darkness/Apocalypse Now in said unstable Captain's mind and actions, AFTER Konrad committed suicide? You're saying he changed his name, decades earlier, predicting all that, just to throw someone who hadn't yet been born off the track of his own madness... Okay then.

** Then who John Konrad actually represents, if it's the only part of Sayaka that remains sane?

Dubai is how Sayaka perceives the world after she becomes [[spoiler: a witch]], to reflect her mistakes as a Puella Magi. She also forgot who she is and lives her life as Martin Walker.

two closest friends (Madoka and Hitomi), and John Konrad is the remaining part of Sayaka that remains sane.
