I hate to say this, but any Armed Forces person does not fit my idea of a 'hero'. A killer for hire, a mercenary.... yes. But not a hero.

The true heroes are the people at the ACLU, at the EFF, and all the other people who are fighting for your right and mine to be free of government intrusion into our private lives.

True Christopher, we're not all heroes, but for everyone who fights for your rights with a pen and the law, many others had to kill, bleed and die. In this country, one hasn't always worked without the other. Thank God for those willing to do so.
