yeah, no, not necessarily

The victim in this week's Grimm had "an honorable discharge, an Iraqi service medal, and two Purple Hearts." "A hero," says one cop.

Yeah, no. Those medals don't mean heroism. They mean he was in Iraq for a month and got hurt twice. You can have a chest full of "medals" (I had half a dozen myself) just for doing your job. 

Heroism has a higher bar.
