@MacGuffin, it's politics that decides who we go to war with. People join the military for many reasons. This guys actions probably saved many others from being blown up. The reasons for being there are irrelevant.

Nice post Gary8162...EOD is an integral part of my USAF Squadron and from the know, Taylor Morris You are a hero.
@IBritInvasion - IMPO: a hero is a random person who does an amazing act just because. Not someone who gets an award for doing his job. Sorry fireman, policeman etc etc
drat your opinion! In my life experiences: There are degrees of heroism. If a random person chooses a dangerous/selfless profession such as Explosive Ordinance Disposal, he or she is a hero right out of the gate. He did not receive an award from the public. He received a reward.... You will probably pass the firemen, Police and EOD "doing their job" running toward the danger while you instinctually run away in fear.
