Paradigm saidPersonally being someone who was at the front lines in Iraq. I see it hard for one who's either never been in the military or never been to War even able to compare to someone who has. And being in a War and actually fighting in a War are two totally different things, sure simliar but certainly aren't even remotely the same.
Not every soldier gets to the front lines, and thus aren't called a "Hero".... '
see what I mean about the standards...
To just put on a solidier's uniform is now considered being a hero.
While it may be a brave thing to do... having to find the buttons and all that stuff... a commonse check needs to be done. Enough of the hyperbole
From Webster dictionary:
a man of distinguished courage or ability, admired for his brave deeds and noble qualities.
a person who, has performed a heroic act and is regarded as a model or ideal: He was a local hero when he saved the drowning child.
a being of godlike prowess and beneficence who often came to be honored as a divinity.
in the Homeric period) a warrior-chieftain of special strength, courage, or ability.
(in later antiquity) an immortal being; demigod.
My my my - how standards have fallen!!!!!!!
