On our right which was entirely successful.” He is proud of what is regiment is capable of and another child soldier who should be proud of his accomplishments is Johnny Clem.

Special Agent Leonard Hatton was on his way to work that fatal morning when the towers were struck and he responded immediately. Although Hatton wasn 't tasked with responding to emergencies he still went and saved many lives. He served the country as a Marian, a firefighter, an FBI agent(Heros to Remember) and he gave his life during the country’s time of need. Ordinary people came to do amazing things on this day including Tom Burnett who was the COO and vice president of Thoratec Corporation and was on flight 93 when he noticed it had been hijacked like the others. Himself and other passengers decided to fight back and gain control of the plane.
Also, the premise of Saving Private Ryan is a group of soldiers looking for Ryan, but Fritz Niland required no search party. He originally fought through the first battle during D-day and survived only to be informed that his brother Bob Niland had been fatally shot off of a machine gun while providing cover fire for retreating soldiers. Another inaccuracy is the duration of events depicted in Saving Private Ryan. The movie painted an unfortunate fantasy of the battle lasting merely minutes, while the cold hard truth was hours upon hours of unbroken bullet spray and bloodshed. This change is necessary though because the short duration of the battle shown alone cost the filmers 12 million dollars of the 70 million dollar budget (“Saving Private Ryan- Eric and Anna - Historical Inaccuracies in Film.”).

“I'm a soldier, I'm trained to fight ... it's instinct and it's natural. I just saw him there, I went over and got him, that was it.” These are the words of Corporal Mark Donaldson, whom in 2009 was awarded the Victoria Cross, the ultimate symbol of heroism, for his gallant actions in dismal circumstances. I have chosen to research the life of Mark and identify why he encapsulates an everyday hero.
Lone Survivor is based on a true story about Operation Red Wings during the war in Afghanistan; the operation was for SEAL Team 10 to take out Ahmad Shah. Three of the four members survive a firefight and Afghan villagers protect him due to the code of honor called “Pashtunwali” until the U.S military can get to him. Lone Survivor is an extraordinary movie because it is intense, captivating and eye opening; it shows how life can really be for U.S military troops. Lone Survivor is very intense because of how emotional it is. The plot line was set up in the first few scenes in a way that showed how close Marcus Luttrell, Danny Dietz, Michael Murphy and Matthew Axelson were.

No doubt these military men and women are all brave, selfless, and commendable people who are dedicated to service. But, lest they perform some heroic feat, I would argue that they likely fall short of being true heroes. Dakota Meyer is a true American hero. Four consecutive trips into the kill zone of an enemy ambush to save the lives of 36 marines and soldiers
Heroism in our culture could be very misinterpreted. People tend to think that hero’s need to be perfect because they are role models, saviors, or peacemakers. An example of a hero for me is Josh Hamilton, an outfielder for the Texas Rangers. Josh Hamilton started out as a power hitting prospect for the Tampa Bay Rays but struggled with addictions to drugs. He spent a short stint for the Reds before the Texas Rangers picked him up.
