I'm a little bit worried about the overall theme of the album, and especially You Will Be Remembered because I'm a huge opponent of glorifying the military, especially the US army which has a rich history of not "defending" their country but rather killing hundreds of thousands of innocent people for stupid reasons, and it makes me kinda sad that my favourite band is a bunch of patriots, but hell, I love those guys anyway and their music is the best thing in the world.
You can support the troops and yet disagree with some of the military's actions at the same time. The two arent mutually exclusive.
Yeah, sure you can, it's more about that "they are heroes" thing, because soldiers that do offensive wars aren't heroes for me, they're murderers.
EDIT: But this doesn't have to do anything with AB anymore, so we should probably get back to topic. :)
