If you really make an act of heroism, then yes, your fellow soldiers or the society can call you hero, but if you just step on a mine or your vehicle exploded in pieces, and you were in it, how does this make you an hero.
If everybody is an hero, how do you call someone doing an act of heroism?, a super-hero?
This is off-course, if word, still have meaning.
1. a man of distinguished courage or ability, admired for his brave deeds and noble qualities.
2. a person who, in the opinion of others, has heroic qualities or has performed a heroic act and is regarded as a model or ideal
