I Don't Believe Soldiers Are Heroes

Being part of the military does not make you a hero, dying in the military does not make you a hero 140 People

    Killing Never Makes You A Hero.

    No matter what you do, killing never makes you a hero. You know what makes you a hero? Protecting people. Making sure people are okay. Saving peoples lives. War is never the answer. And I disagree that soldiers are never heroes. I'm sure there are plenty that are but there is...

    Just To Add To This

    thought i'd might as well make a story about it considering its just getting filled with crap. the point of this group was orginally that people who join the military aren't automaticly heros. you have to earn it first, soldiers have dont terrible things and good things. some do...

    Everyone Is Entitled To Their Own Opinion...

    However, this group's opinion is wrong. I don't ever say someone's opinion is wrong. I am very objective, but people must completely misunderstand soldiers. No matter how wrong you feel war is (which i actually do myself), we have them. We have been in several wars, and who is on...

    Shameful

    Anyone who says our soldiers are not heroes should be completely ashamed of themselves. It takes a selfless kind of soul to sign up to voluntarily go to war. My grandfather was a WWII veteran who fought at the Battle of the Bulge. My dad signed up as a teenager during Vietnam. My...

    Be Sure Of This, The Abu Ghraib Soldiers Were Not Heros.

    In fact, every fool who says "I was just following orders" while he/she takes part in a crime, is no hero.

    Haphazard Bullsh!t

    Haphazard, face it, being a soldier does not turn a criminal into a hero. Nor a torturer a detective. Nor a My Lai, a Fallujah, or a Dresden into a 'preemptive attack'.

    I love that our soldiers are brave enough to die for us. I am immensely appreciative. however, I don't agree with killing. I don't understand war, and maybe that's because I'm young and don't understand concepts this complex yet. but I know I would never be able to kill someone...

    No

    Heroes

    How can anyone say that no soldiers are heroes? If that isn't than what is? In the World Wars it wasn't about oil or money, it was about freedom. If the soldiers didn't stop the Nazis in WWll, there would be no freedom, and many, many more lives would have been needlessly taken...

    All I can say is that with the words, "I am an American Soldier" comes a great sense of pride, dignity, and honor. There are those that would argue that the youth are brain-washed or forced into serving, but I can assure those people that statement is far from the truth. Those...

    Heroes

    More Precisely...

    I don't believe that just being a soldier automatically qualifies you to be called a hero. I think you kinda have to actually do something to earn that. It would be like saying oranges are fruit therefore all fruit are oranges. Doesn't work that way.
