Letter to the Editor: Hero Worship Misplaced

The type of uniform one wears should have more significance in the amount of accolades one receives.

Letter to the Editor: Hero Worship Misplaced

 

I love football, especially at the college level, as witnessed by the fact that my emotional health is heavily impacted by whether or not the Fighting Irish win over all.

However, I feel vaguely uneasy when men who make millions in team uniform on the playing field receive parades and presidental accolades while other men and women who wear their country's uniform on the battlefield often return home to obscurity, poverty and insufficient medical care.
