Well Bokababe, a Hoplite is a citizen-soldier in one of the old Greek city-states. So you have that wrong, too.
And Formerlib & Montyspython, Hoplite was a volunteer soldier in the U.S. Army who did his duty as an infantryman on the DMZ in Korea as well as in the L.A. riots as a Guardsman. Since both of you have denigrated his service, please let us know about all you've done to serve your country? By "your country", I'm talking about the USA, btw, which may rule you guys out. But please do tell if you can.
