I would never call myself a hero either and would be ashamed if I ever did. I did what was asked to make my country safe. To tell you the truth, there was a good bit of bureaucracy and bull and I had dang good time every now and again. Things change and 41 years ago it wasn't an all-volunteer force and you didnít have to hide wearing your uniform. A good many folks didn't get a choice back in the day as to where they was going to serve or not. Today's military force does have a choice. Today, we moan over who deserves a Silver and Bronze star and a Medal of Honor. It is a little harder to tell who deserves them when you donít see 10-20 people dying in a minor altercation. They give Bronze stars to Logisticians for delivering stuff really good. One thing that doesnít change is the experience of being in the military - it is humans and all his goods and bads that wins wars. I kinda wished everyone had a chance to experience a couple of years in the military. It sure changes you. I think for the better for the most part. I raised 4 boys and 3 are officers in the Army and the youngest will graduate from West Point this May.
Over a couple of beers, there is nothing like sharing what that idiot Field Grade Officer did (I know I worked them), HA HA, or all the mischief you get into in the military. Can you imagine less than 10% of the population has ever served? I think because of the small number of people being ďCalledĒ that is another reason to have military folks called heroes. And Grouchy, you served in a time of war so you are an American hero in my book. Course doesnít mean I ainít going to give you grief every now and then and I would expect no less from you. Keeps us honest.
