Webster's Dictionary defines a hero as a mythological or legendary figure often of divine descent endowed with great strength or ability; an illustrious warrior; a man admired for his achievement and noble qualities; one that shows great courage. How do you define a hero? Students from Robinson Middle School had the opportunity to answer that question when 184th Security Forces members joined with other local law enforcement agencies at the Meet Your Local Heroes Day event on September 30th. Equipped with two tactical response vehicles and accounts of their own experiences, those ranging from natural disaster responses in Kansas and Louisiana to overseas missions in support of the War on Terror, 184th members TSgt Mark Wall, SSgt Quentin Morris, SSgt Jeffrey Nicholson and MSgt Bill Cook represented the Kansas Air National Guard with success. "We had a wonderful time talking with the children, the administrators and educators as well. All of the kids had a great time and it allowed us an opportunity to connect and interact with the community we serve," commented MSgt Cook. The citizens of the community are truly the ones that matter, and through participation in events such as this one, the citizens witness that commitment. As by definition, all heroes may not be legends or have divine abilities, but as defenders of freedom and protectors of lives, it is the everyday Guardsmen and women that define heroism.
