To be a soldier , it means to be a hero . You devote your whole life for others to be safe . People who have a duty to provide safety of the population have a great responsibility , because the lives of many people is in their hands . In such a trade , the risk is very high , so not everyone sacrifice their lives to enroll in such debt. A military family also suffers because the soldier spends the majority of time on the front , away from loved ones. Therefore it is necessary for people to see them as heroes because they are the only people who show patriotism.
