MSNBC Host: 'I'm Uncomfortable' Calling Fallen Soldiers Heroes

Sorry, Chris, but anyone willing to sacrifice his or her life for your right to say whatever you want on your Sunday morning talk show is a hero. There is no incorrect way to "marshal" that word when speaking about the men and women who value the principles of our nation above their own lives. Calling them what they are -- heroes -- is a small way to recognize their bravery. It's hardly justification for more war; it's just one way we can say thank you to our soliders.

The fact is, our soldiers are our greatest heroes, and they deserve our utmost respect for their willingness to sacrifice their time and their lives for us. Yes, Chris, you are wrong -- after all, the reason we celebrate this Memorial Day holiday is to honor our fallen heroes.
