Where will his soul go, hell or heaven? Plus is it a sin fighting for your country as a soldier when they (your country) are fighting wrongly?
They go to Valhalla I don't know if there's a heaven but if there is, I'd say it depends on the sum total of all he or she has done versus the bad and not just at the moment of death.
Which makes me think. I don't get into the silly fights about religion on hubpages, but lets say Kim Jung Il nukes the US and half of Europe and then on his death bed a priest gives him his last rites. The a**hole says "sorry my bad" and poof all's forgiven.
So he go's to heaven and he meets all the billions of people he vaporized. Is everyone else he killed suppose to say "It's okay, don't let it happen again."
There's where I think a lot of religions are wrong. Some may think people can/will be forgiven; but I think - if there is a God - God would not forgive for that kind of thing. Humans may like the idea of letting people off the hook before they die, and maybe they're worried that they, too, need to be forgiven. I can't help but think (if there's something afterward), "Surprise! You're not forgiven after all."
I don't know Vallhalla is popular among soldiers, so is the cult of Mithras. I suppose it might be a bit idiosyncratic. Robert E. Lee for example at the pearly gates, Erwin Rommel at Vallhalla, Patton, well I'm not sure where Patton would be. An eternal battlefield perhaps.
Your question is offensive to all of us who currently have loved ones in harms way.

This question was pulled as a question, so I'm submitting it in the forum instead:If, with his dying breath, Hitler had asked Jesus for forgiveness, could he have been admitted to Heaven?
