The officer was still speaking. “We have this questionnaire down to an exact science. If it is determined that you are overly stressed, you will be given the opportunity to recuperate in the presence of the best doctors available. You won’t even have to leave.

    It's giving multiple options for defining their act of killing an enemy soldier, it seems, to make the question less biased or charged. For example, if they only listed it as "After each murder..." well, the soldier might not see what they did as murder, and the word has a particular charge to it, so it could affect the way they answer the survey. It's a way to make sure the survey answers they get are honest and not affected just by the way they word the questions.

    It's just using hyphens instead of slashes:
    murder-death-kill = murder/death/kill

    It's just using multiple words for the same thing to reduce ambiguity.
