    He was decorated for his service. he IS a veteran. PERIOD.

    Not all vets with PTSD were in "combat" positions. He repaired planes. on a base that was probably under assault. He still would have had to fight. He probably saw airmen he knew come back with wounds. He may not have been in combat, but he sure as shit saw it.

      does not make you a war hero. My guess is you also want to hand out trophies to all the kids for "participating".

      Of course it hurts like Hell, You're getting screwed by an elephant...

        I never called him a "hero" nor has the press. the simply say he was decorated. YOU interpret that to mean "hero"
        You think that personnel who did not see combat on the lines is LESS than an infantry man or the pilot?

        Got news for you, that airplane mechanic was more important than the pilot, for it without the mechanic, that fighter or bomber or Huey would never stay in the air. Everyone who served is a veteran. He was rewarded for the quality of his work.  
         The military medaled him. Not me. Take your issues up with them
