    that those who fight the wars did not cause them -- the credit (or blame) goes to the armchair warriors who decide where and when to send our military. In a sense, the military is like fire insurance -- you have it in hopes you never need it, but when you need it you're damn glad to have it. That being said, performing a heroic act in war shouldn't be diminished just because of the circumstances, but not every soldier is a "hero", most are just out there doing their jobs.

    My father, who served in the Navy in WWII, if he were alive today would probably not consider himself a "hero"; he just went and did his job, did it to the best of his ability, then came home, got married, raised 4 kids and died way too damn young.
