Grouchy I understand your point, but what do you call people who put their lives on the line every day? The definition of a hero is a person of distinguished courage or ability, admired for their brave deeds and noble qualities or a person who, in the opinion of others, has heroic qualities or has performed a heroic act. Please key on the words courage, brave, and qualities not just heroic act.

Does not the fictional company clerk Corporal Radar O'Reilly deserve to be called a hero? Is not his job as important as anyone else¡¦s? Is his life not at risk? When do we go from job title to hero? Are only those soldiers in combat units¡¦ heroes? What about the combat support units like the US Army Quartermaster Corps? Under your definition Jessica Lynch, US Soldier Truck driver is not a hero. Only the folks her rescued her are the real heroes? Audie was a Medal of Honor winner which is Super heroƒº Can my father not be my hero? Are only military members who suffer visible injuries heroes? Are PTSD members heroes? I have met individuals of questionable characters who served in the military, but they served. So, are they heroes? Since we have adopted an all-volunteer force, the quality of the troops is reported to be better. So, I have no problem calling anyone who served and was honorably discharged a hero. They left home, put their live in harms ways (over time depending on the war that level varies), and signed a contract to give their life when called. Even heroes have faults. When our heroes don¡¦t behave honorably we appreciate their sacrifice but they must pay the consequences. In the meantime, anyone wearing or who worn the uniform and was honorably discharged is a hero in my book and deserves appreciation and respect.
