I love that line as it says so much about the military.
Though some of us did not see combat, or experience any hostilities, we were fortunate enough to serve with those heroes that did!db
I've thought lots of heroes and bravery. Surely lots are, soldiers who are in combat or even the threat of combat; but, I will have to say that over the last couple of years I've been involved on being basically the driver for Rose, fighting breast cancer for 10 years: diagnosed at 30, died just shy of her 41st birthday, my views have changed. I watched her die slowly and during the time I was with her, met lots of cancer survivors. Now, with soldiers, sometimes it's hard to gage. But, with Rose and these many that I met, from my perspective,there is no doubt, we are talking bravery and real heroes.
