Military heroes often exhibit stereotypes of the branch of service they serve/served with: an Air Force hero can be expected to be an AcePilot and love to fly, a Marine hero will be tough and have a little bit of the BloodKnight in him(or, sometimes, even a KnightTemplar), an Army hero will be very patriotic, etc. It's pretty much expected of a military hero to also be a CaptainPatriotic, but this is not always the case. If they have a rank as part of their name, they ''will'' possess that rank.
