115. Ah yes, more of your time machine
What does anything after he got home have anything to do with what he did, in fact, endure? Does that erase what he went through? Was he planning these things whilst being tortured there? Coming up with Iraq War plans on the dirt floors?

He was heroic, and there's nothing after the fact that you can do to take that away. It's like a scar, it doesn't vanish when you get old and complacent. But I'd love to hear what you think makes a hero. For some reason I'm expecting the words Rosie O'Donnell to appear in reply.
