I'm proud of what I did; proud to serve....but in no way would I ever consider myself a hero
Just odd to me that it's used with such regularity. I think it's something to do with the atmoshphere since 9/11
I agree with you about the overuse of that word. I know plenty of dopes who served in the military along with lots of great guys.
But don't kid yourself. You're not just a hero, you're a superhero. I get a tear in my eye when I see your avatar and my wife is always asking me why I can't be more like Dayze.
