Roosevelt left his secure government post to organize a volunteer cavalry known as the Rough Riders, which he led in a bold charge up San Juan Hill in the Battle of San Juan Heights, in 1898. A war hero, and nominated for the Medal of Honor. This is quite heroic because he left his age government job to fight for his country.
From what he called the presidency’s “bully pulpit,” Roosevelt gave speeches aimed at raising public consciousness about the nation’s role in world politics, the need to control the trusts that dominated the economy, the regulation of railroads, and the impact of political corruption. This man inspired thousands to change the way they think about global issues, he really put his charisma to good use.
In 1904 Theodore Roosevelt secured construction of the Panama Canal. This was a huge development because people now no longer needed to sail through South America, and could just go through this little channel. This was heroic because it saved many people so much time and material.

This is heroic because he was the first president to bulk up the American military so that we would be powerful and protected
Theodore Roosevelt’s presidency is differentiated by his dedication to prosecuting monopolies under the Sherman Antitrust Act. Out of this commitment came a benchmark of his first term, the "Square Deal"—a domestic program that embraced reform of the American workplace, government regulation of industry and consumer protection, with the overall aim of helping all classes of people. Roosevelt's charismatic personality plays a huge role in his heroism, because he used it to help people everywhere.
Theodore Roosevelt was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1906 for his role in negotiating the end of the Russo-Japanese War. Roosevelt believed that if Japan had devastated Russia, it would lead to an imbalance of power in the Pacific, one that the United States would eventually have to realign , but at a terrible cost. This is heroic because he stopped a war. If that isn't heroic, then I don't know what is.
In 1906, Theodore Roosevelt signed the National Monuments Act, preserving sites such as the Grand Canyon, Devil's Tower, and the Redwood Forests.
