I find it troubling that in our culture, dead soldiers are automatically, unquestionably lauded as heroes. While I don't agree that dying in a war is necessarily brave or valiant, Washington Post reporter Salih Saif Aldin, who died in the line of duty while serving as a journalist in Iraq, sounds like a hero to me. I honor him and thank him for his service.
