Ask Not, Tell Not
Considering the issue of dying for my country as raised by Nick:
I just literally can't think of a scenario where my death would make a difference for my whole country. It would have to be a really complicated situation where I was like James Bond and they wired my heart into the biggest nuclear bomb ever and if my heart beat one or two or three more times the bomb would detonate and take out not only the state of Ohio but the whole East coast and continue west over the Mississippi and on over the Rockies destroying the entire West coast. And Alaska. And Hawaii.
I don't know. Seems pretty far-fetched. But yes, I'd be honored to die for my country if it came down to all that.
