Heroes in Uniform

A Hero is a person who:
  • acts voluntarily
  • at great cost or personal risk
  • for the benefit of others, or for a moral or ethical principle
  • without any expectation of reward

Contrary to popular belief, putting on a military uniform doesn't automatically make you a "hero" any more than wearing hospital scrubs automatically makes you a surgeon.  A hero IS as a hero DOES.  The last military hero I know of was WO Hugh Thompson. But Bradley Manning certainly qualifies. If you don't know the stories of these two men, you should.
