Default Can you name a Hero?

As I watch my Nation rapidly slipping into a politically correct decline , I wonder if anyone can name a modern day person to look up to.

Sponge Bob ?

I'm not really all that into the Big Time Hero stuff. I think that any man that respects his family, friends and our little piece of the world, works for a living or is retired after working for a living, and goes out of his way at least once in a while to help other is the Hero we should be looking for. There are still many of these Hero's around but it seems the numbers are dwindling rapidly.

My Granddad has always been my hero. WWII vet, practiced medicine 50 years.

He took care of a lot of people he didn't have to. I'm not sure they make 'em like that any more - but I hope I come close.

LT Michael Murphy
PO Michael Monsoor

Today's Sgt. York and Audie Murphy, who both are still my heroes.

Google them please, and if you need any more, post.

Can't think of many by name, but I'm sure there are many from the conflicts we are involved in. I have always thought that most people use the term 'Hero' out of context.

Too many to mention, some of whom I owe my life to.

Absolutely agree.

Especially when referring to 'professional ball thrower', actor or 'artist'.

A Master Chief/Master Diver by the name of Dave Thompson. STARCHED working khakis, MDV Pin, spit shined black construction boots. Spoke softly... no one ever missed a word. Old, grey, fit and wise. Mentor, Fatherly, scarey cool, always. Brought the Navy's UCT's into the modern ages and was the blueprint of professionalism for many highly motivated Seabees.
