“It takes a hero to be one of those men who goes into battle,” said Norman Schwarzkopf. I think veterans are American’s heroes because they are brave enough to risk their lives for the freedom of our country. Some people think of veterans and just think of the people who are armed, but there is many more than just those strong men and women, the others may not be fighting the enemy but instead fighting to keep a solider alive. There are so many heroes in the U.S. military that all need to be recognized.
Everyday soldiers are deployed and sent to battle away from their families. It takes someone that is strong, brave, and someone who has faith, and even more courage. Leaving your family and know you are risking your life is dreadful. But knowing that you are freeing America and other countries, well that is a feeling you can never recreate. These people who keep risking their lives battle after battle are our heroes, America’s heroes!
There are many kind of soldiers in the military, each play an important role in every battle. Doctor, dentist, cooks and even truck drivers are our heroes. Each and all of them are people that children look up to because they have lots of courage and fight for what’s right. This is an important aspect to have when you are a hero of a country.
Know you know why I think people who have served in the military are America’s heroes and should be recognized, fight or not they do a lot for our country. I hope you devote some time to learning some more about veterans. They are heroes we need to respect and honor them for what they do.
