Honor, Respect, Devotion to Duty: SA David Reynolds

A hero doesn’t always wear a cape and save the day. Some heroes simply dedicate their lives to their jobs and answer the call to put another’s safety and well being before their own. They make a conscious choice to think of others first and when tested, bravely and selflessly arise to the occasion. These actions are what make a hero.
