    Default Gramatically Correct?

    Is this an okay sentence, "These men and women are just that, heroes, and we should pay them tribute every opportunity we get."
    Is there ay way I could revise it to make it better?

    It's good.

    Here are a couple of revisions you could consider. I don't know that they are better than the original.

    - "These men and women are just that. They are heroes, and we should pay them tribute every opportunity we get."

    - "These men and women are just that -- heroes -- and we should pay them tribute every opportunity we get."

    - "These men and women are just that; they are heroes. And we should pay them tribute every opportunity we get."
