George Patton once said- " I am a soldier, I fight where I am told and I win, where I fight".
At no point, did he say die.
Being a warrior does not mean you, blindly choose death. To do that would make you and idiot and an ineffective warrior.
My job, was never to die for my country but rather, to give the other guy a chance to die for his.
Do not let Hollywood's version of manliness and bravado, determine what real honor and bravery, should look like.
A warrior ( hence a brave person) accepts death as a possibility NOT as a preferred option.
We all fear death and pain..... to say otherwise makes us either liars or fools.
