  •  One could argue (none)
    that their service is part of their merits.  Do they get no points for honorable military service?  How about bravery?  Leadership?

    That would definitely count toward their merits for me.

    •  So what? (none)
      What about the guy who was an emergency room doctor in a county hospital?

      How about a fireman or policeman or forest ranger?

      Yeah, they all are measured by what they do in life, where they've committed themselves, what kinds of contributions they've made.

      There are heroes all around us.  Many of them we never see.

      •  Mixed reaction but "so what?" isn't fair (none)
        Except for the "so what?" part, I don't disagree.  

        If you are downplaying their service by saying "so what?" I disagree with that, strongly.  I feel it is very unfair to the vets as a whole.

        But I strongly agree with the fact that many others are heroes too, and many others have great things to contribute.
