They don't have a choice. Instinct takes over and they do one or the other. That's why they always say afterwards they don't feel heroic.

If you know yourself, you probably do know what would happen.

This. I always cringe a little when someone says It's 'brave' or 'heroic'. The person had no real choice, they're the rush in type or they aren't. I don't exactly hate the cop who froze up - he was tested, and failed. Time to get into another profession, bro.

Eeehhh, depends on the amount of training you have had and if it's your first firefight or not.

Because shooting some starving farmer you've never met and have nothing against is 100% not the same thing as rushing in to save some schoolkids

Maybe read up on the history of that war and realize why it's not the most prestige war for any vet to be in.

If you want to die for some Vietnamese then go out there and die for some Vietnamese.
