I FEEL Mr Andrews’ article is confusing.
Soldiers have no part in decision making, they do what the rest of us cannot. They put their lives on the line for us and cope with fear and hardships so that we have the freedom to live our lives.
I believe they are all heroes, in the real sense of the word and their courage is built on the memories of the heroes that have gone before.
When I see the face of a young man who has given his life and lost all that could have been, I know I am looking at a hero, and a tear is not far away.
