    It takes more than a man. It takes a hero!
     
  5. The word 'Hero' is used to fequently now days. Singers, movie stars, ball players might be good at what they do but they d*mned sure ain't heros.
    This Soldier is a Hero.

    It happened many times, in the history of our various branches of the military, and yes, it takes a special sort of person to make that decision, in other words,a hero.
    A baseball player, has to make a play, or hit a homerun. A singer has to have the right song, at the right time, to make a hit. An actor has to pretend to be something they're not, to perfection.
    But a young American simply goes out and defends this nation, sometimes making the ultimate sacrifice, for low pay, and usually takes backseat to all the moneymakers.
    Not in my house, and not in my heart. Please take a moment, to thank, and pray, for all our real heroes!
