    Damn it,why does a guy named Peter Wang have to be one of the heroes?

    I think @nac386 is trying to set us up.

    That kid helped to save his classmates when an armed adult police officer hid outside like a coward.

    This man's tireless efforts against the Soviets directly led to the liberation of countless millions.

    These women are heroes to many. Please elaborate why you don't believe these strong, professional women to be leaders, role models, heroes, etc.

    A+ thread bump. I also want to point out that he was retired. He wasn't there just doing his job. He saw the predicament, is one of the few people in the world (especially in Thailand) with the underwater skills needed for such an operation, and volunteered to join the rescue team. Pure selflessness to save those boys

    @Smok3r get the fuck out of here and go back to the meme thread. This thread is supposed to genuinely give some acknowledgement and props and honor to true heros

    Absolutely, that's a great point. He was there because he cared enough to put himself at risk to save those kids. Everyone else there deserves a shout out too, a lot of people helped, but I'll specifically point out the British divers who went to Thailand just to help and were the first ones to locate the kids 2 miles deep in the cave.

    British cave divers John Volanthen and Richard Stanton.

    hats off to those guys, I tried cave diving once and that was not for me. Did a cave in central Florida that would make what these guys did look like an amusement park ride. That is some scary shit, if you've never scuba dived before let me tell you, the first time i put on a tank and went under in a pool I had a little bit of a claustrophobic panic attack, but got over it. The cave dive was supervised, marked and had a guide line and still you feel like everything is closing in on you. I couldn't even imagine doing that in a situation like that. Hats off to everyone that involved in that rescue.
