Sparker poses an intriguing perspective.

It seems a matter of common sense that someone who actually risked life and limb for country should be considered heroic.

And yet that opens the hero door to all sorts. Both Hitler and Stalin come immediately to mind as they certainly participated in actions when in their youth and were at some risk in their later careers.

I suppose by this logic nearly any military strongman would be a hero…as well as millions of others perhaps more deserving of the accolade.

This may come of off as arguing for the sake of it. For that I apologize. It is really just something I had never "pinned down" to think about before.
