A brave man and a hero, Sgt. Giunta is an example of dedication, sacrifice, and loyalty for his countrymen. For far too long have we failed to notice the achievements of our war heroes preferring instead sports and movie stars who only have to show up for work. I believe that it is high time to returning to true heroes who risked all in the service of something greater than themselves.

WS-I so agree with your take -sports "stars" mean nothing to me-except when I was very young and naive-
Our BEST are truly the 'stars' - and- they are humble - even though each one could take on those in sports...because they train harder and are usually more fit...
