Relevant to this thread I teach my children that there is no glory or heroes in war. I saw a similar poster online somewhere and made a t-shirt out of it. I wear it around my soldier deifying family to ruffle feathers. I have "street cred" with them since I am a combat wounded USMC infantryman.
Soldiers are tools. Policemen fall in the same category.
