I’m proud to be Belgian (i.e., one-quarter Belgian, through my maternal grandfather, who fought in WWII and received the Bronze Star and Purple Heart. He died when I was seven or eight. According to family members he was a very different man after the war than he was before.)
Three genuine war heroes: Smedley Butler, Hugh Thompson, and Bradley Manning.
