The navy seals who did their job flawlessly and trained hard and long to get where they are, they are the tip of the spear heroes. They will ironically in a way, remain anonymous until they all leave the seals and one or more of them writes the book or the script for the movie...

This man is being hailed a hero as he told his men to hide and he offered himself in place of the crew. That takes guts, and yes, he is a hero as he may have possibly saved the others lives. Now, I'd like to know if you have ever done a selfless act like this "HERO" did.

Big White Tea Bags...your posts are "STEEPED" with humor...bwak bwak bwak, I couldn't resist!

I agree with Jenny, he offered himself up as barter against the pirate that the crew had. That was a selfless act. The navy seals are heroes also, everything went perfectly, timing is everything, they were lucky to get 3 head shots at once. All this on Easter Sunday! Makes for happy endings!

StaberDeath, I think I know you from another forum. Hmmmm...
