General Patton, in the Battle of the Bulge exercised the principles of mission command to the fullest and they yielded significantly great results for the Allied forces. General Patton employed each of the principles in different ways in order to ensure that the German surprise attack did not significantly set back the Allied forces in the war. The exercise of mission command allows a commander to conduct military operations and missions through dispersed execution. According to Army Doctrine Publication (ADP) 6-0, Mission Command, the definition of mission command is “the exercise of authority and direction by the commander using mission orders to enable disciplined initiative within the commander’s intent to empower agile and adaptive leaders in the conduct of unified land operations”. General Patton exhibited four of the mission command principles extremely well during the Battle of the Bulge. General Patton drove the Allied forces since he had already built the cohesive team through mutual trust. General Patton also created a shared understanding throughout all of his troops of the mission they had to accomplish. General Patton also was highly known throughout the war for always giving a clear commander’s intent and did so again in the Battle of the Bulge. General Patton also used mission orders to ensure that his subordinate units completed the strategic objective of the operation and didn’t worry about micromanaging their Soldiers. General Patton helped put the

“No doubt your sword is indeed a beautiful thing. It is a tribute to whoever forged it in bygone ages. There are very few such swords as this one left in the world, but remember, it is only a sword, Matthias! It contains no secret spell, nor holds within its blade any magical power. This sword is made for only one purpose to kill. It will only be as good or evil as the one who wields it.” (Brian Jacques, Redwall). While there is twenty-two books in this series, the difference is that unlike a normal book series which is in order the Redwall series has no order they can be in the past, present or the future. The first theme will be about good vs evil then the next theme

This investigation will seek to answer the question: To what extent were women in Oak Ridge, Tennessee significant to the Manhattan Project during the second world war?

The dynamic between the two brothers is quite interesting since they seem at first not to have a lot in common. Their behavior and actions demonstrate perfectly the differences between the two brothers. One could underline the fact that the dynamic between the two brothers is different from what we previously seen in Tex or The Outsiders because Peter and Edmund have two sisters.
I remember this one bright and beautiful day in second grade. It was a bright and beautiful day. The birds were chirping and the sun was shining. Our big class was talking about the new thing…Silly Bands. “Alright class, get into your sets NOW! Our mean teacher Miss. Lewis shouted. Today we learn about Franklin Roosevelt. We’re also going to learn about his wife Eleanor Roosevelt…” Everyone one knew all 44 of the presidents of the USA. Or at least the one’s so far. Our class were surprised when she announced that we were going to learn about one of their wives. We usually never talked about any of the presidents wives. Eleanor Roosevelt played an important role in the Red Cross, NAACP, United Nations, and New
As I am quickly approaching the end of my senior, I am looking back at how far I have come since freshman year and everything that Henley High School has helped me accomplish in my life. In preparation for the life that every senior must experience after school, the senior capstone project was put in place to help seniors find out what they would suit them as career and give them some of the necessary tools in achieving that. Part of the capstone was earning service hours at a non profit organization, that can go on a resume. With serving came a facilitator, who guides one’s service, and also the challenges and success of the service itself. To Provide help on future careers, Henley High School also provided an opportunity to take the CIS test
Clara Barton was born on December 25, 1921 in Massachusetts. She quickly realized her affinity for helping people when she began caring for her brother, David, after he was injured in an accident. Barton received most of her education by working as a bookkeeper and a clerk for her older brother. She started teaching at the age of fifteen, after taking the advice of a doctor who recommended she begin teaching to overcome her shyness, even though at that time it was more common for men to be teachers. She eventually opened up her own free public school in Bordentown, New Jersey in 1953, although she was later replaced by a man. She then moved to Washington D.C. to work in the US Patent Office until the start of the war.
Clarissa Harlowe Barton, or Clara, was born on Dec.25, 1821, in Oxford Massachusetts. She is one of the most honored women in American history. She began teaching school at a time when most teachers were men and she was one of the first women to gain employment in the federal government.

However, she knew that where she was needed was not behind the lines but on the battlefield itself.
The military culture is its own culture within the majority culture that is in the United States. This means that those that come into the military have a new set of norms to adjust to and possibly a new set of oppression to face it if applicable to them. With the amount of African American women in the military is increasing and is causing more and more of them to assimilate to the military’s sub-culture. At this point this assimilation goes beyond being a military wife. It grows even from filling the role of a nurse and other “womanly” role to even being a general. The assimilation to the military sub-culture is not necessarily and easy one. In the past, being a female and in the military placed Black

After a long time thinking and researching I narrowed down my interest to political science, and my interests have directed me towards international relations and laws. I am fascinated by how the states of the world cooperate together to build a safe place for everyone.

After hearing Melissa Martinez, I understood maybe it is good to think about working in Foreign Service. How she talked about their work is pleasing and incredible. Melissa Martinez changed my way of thinking about Foreign Service and interested me in her work.
