General Powell was a good soldier who did his duty like many other soldiers, but to call him a hero is absurd. The definition of a hero is what it is and always has been and to call General Powell or any other member of the armed forces a hero just because they served in a war zone does a great disservice to those who were actua heros by performing "above and beyond" the call of duty. General Powell served one six month combat tour as a Captain and adviser to a RVN unit until he steped on a Punji Stake and infected his foot. "We burned down the thatched huts, starting the blaze with Ronson and Zippo lighters," Powell recalled. "Why were we torching houses and destroying crops? Ho Chi Minh had said the people were like the sea in which his guerrillas swam. ... We tried to solve the problem by making the whole sea uninhabitable. In the hard logic of war, what difference did it make if you shot your enemy or starved him to death?" :Colin Powell
