Is serving in the Army a good reason for having a reduced sentence for attempted murder?

See the news article below:

The attempted murderer was an army vet who had been on a lot missions. Probably has PTSD.

Is that an excuse for contracting for a racially motivated murder? Isn’t the ex-Army guy just as responsible?
