Were always looking for heroes. Why do all the guys I meet from the Vietnam Era say they were snipers? Do all these people really believe we think they are telling the truth? OF course not. You see there are so many sniper stories going around, and no one seems to call them out. The truth is , most of the troops over there in the day, were ordinary folks that did not come back and tell all kinds of lies about their valor. Just the ones that knew how to get more monies and tell folklore to their relatives. Oh well, just keep on lying. You have begun to believe you did all this stuff. You are not a hero, but a liar.
