Definition of a Hero?

Ok....I don't want to word this the wrong way, so forgive me if I do.

I hear alot about Hero's every time there is mention of anyone in the armed services. This sort of bothers me. Much in the same way that the term 'great' is used left and right when announcers/fans etc describe a 'good' player etc. I think the over-usage of these terms diminishes the impact of the words themselves. I think there are plenty of hero's in the armed forces, however II don't think the word should be used with such a borad stroke.

From my standpoint, the service men and women that most refer to as "Hero's" is a little over the top. In my mind, a Hero is someone who goes way above and beyond; potentially paying the ultimate sacrifice for his comrades or civilians..

I think the correct term for servicemen/women is 'Patriot'. Save the 'hero' term for the true Hero's.

Flame away (....though I didn't intend to offend)
