Does duty = sacrifice
Duty fulfilled
America vs military culture

If honor is about sacrifice
America is about rewards
So honor American

Buildings and grounds is about serving for reward, respect, a sense of pride

Honor from Judaic christian tradition

Following rules gives reward to a few, and a philosophical reward for most

Honor, duty, responsibility, are they different

Responsibility is practical, duty is higher, more philosophical

Honor in poker, not cheating

Honor as in a code, or honor as in being honored, receiving honors (rewards, medals)

Honor is particularly male in America

Sacrifice to save the family (lost in a snowstorm) is honorable

Respect for young kids means showing them respect, their honor doesn’t require then sacrifice

I think we got distracted by the idea of honors and being honored
