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.
Obamacare’s fix for an American health care system that the federal government long ago broke, is to give the federal government far more power over American health care; that its solution to escalating health costs is to mandate greater health benefits (and, hence, higher costs); and that its solution to the pricey overreliance on pre-paid health plans — offered by insurance companies in lieu of real insurance — is to have the government require Americans to buy those pre-paid health plans under penalty of law.
