The men have to be healthy because the front was physically demanding. They had all forms of physical hard ships from chronic diarrhea to painful wounds. From a psychological standpoint, the men had to turn their emotions off and simply try to survive. Breaking down emotionally at the front could be catastrophic to the soldiers and their comrades.
