A veteran is someone who has served a long time in the military, no matter what their age. Veterans are important to our freedom because while serving their time, you have to remember that they are fighting for your right to be free in the United States. Without them, there wouldn’t be any freedom in this world. They fight for what they believe in and what is right for the country. You have to remember, these war vets are putting their lives on the line for people they don’t even know. Having a good understanding of this will brighten your mind on how much they devote their lives to this. When anyone chooses to go into the military, they will spend many months away from their family and loved ones. These vets defend everyone no matter what race, gender, age, or religion and they show that by giving us back the freedom that they fought for. To
Do you know someone who is a veteran, perhaps a family member or a friend? Do you know what they had to go through? How they risked their lives for you and our country. Well today I am going to tell you what they had to go throw, what they sacrificed, and why they served.
Veterans Day is distinct from most holidays. It is something that should hold true to everyone’s heart. No matter if you personally are a veteran or not, chances are you know someone that is. On November 11th, we celebrate all the wonderful things that military veterans have done for us in protecting our country. The United States set aside this day to honor our veterans, however we should honor them as much and as often as possible.
What a Veteran means to me. It means, freedom, honor, putting their life on the line everyday. So that me, my mom, my dad, my sister, my grandparents,and the rest of my family and friends can have freedom. We all have freedom and we owe them our respect because if it was not for God and a Veteran who knows how this world would be. We celebrate Veterans Day every year on November 11th to honor the men and women who served and is still serving our wonderful country. We shouldn’t honor a veteran just once a year but everyday because they are protecting us everyday. When we say the pledge in the mornings we should be thinking about our veterans and what they did for us.
I have a few people in my family that are veterans. Their service means alot to me. I admire them for their for their bravery and loyalty to their country. They inspire me in many ways such as to be brave even if the situation requires only a small act of bravery, and to speak out against something I know is wrong. To me veterans need to be honored every day for their service.
My Grandpa inspired me to think more about veterans on Veterans Day because of what he has been through and what he did for the family. He was a South Vietnamese soldier during the Vietnam War and worked along with the American soldiers there. After the Vietnam war ended in 1975, things started becoming miserable for people like him in South Vietnam, so he escaped from Vietnam by boat and went to the United States. He left when my Dad, uncle, and aunt were babies. Fifteen years later, he sponsored my grandma, Dad, uncle, and aunt to come and live in the United States with him. When he saw them again at the airport, he did recognize them at first because it had been a while since he last saw them. Because of
Battle scars, wounds that run deeper than the lacerations themselves, trauma and heartbreak that we will never understand- all for our nation. Thanks to them, we can enjoy a high quality of life in a safe, peaceful country. The Bill of Rights and the Constitution would not have meaning if they were not defended; our personal liberties would be nonexistent and our aspirations would not be possible. America is beautiful in that uniqueness is embraced and the spread of ideas is promoted, not stifled. Our hopes and dreams can only be achievable when liberty and freedom are upheld. Veterans’ sacrifices ensure our citizens’ dreams will be within reach in a country that is, in all senses of the word,
Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, also known as PTSD, is a mental disorder that most often develops after a veteran experiences a traumatic event. While having this illness, the veteran believes their lives are in danger. They also may feel afraid or feel they have no control over what is happening. If their feeling does not go away, the symptoms may disrupt the person 's life, making it hard to continue daily activities.
Veterans are those who served in the military and fought in the war. They are someone who supported the country. Without them, United States of America would not be formed. Freedom, liberty, and pursuit of happiness are rights that we have today, but without the veteran these rights will be all gone and America will not be the America that we see today.They are the one who make our dream possible.It is important for us to honors these veterans who are hero to the people in United States.
When citizens of the United States stare up at their national flag - the 13 stripes and the 50 stars that represent the freedom their ancestors fought tooth and nail for - they probably fail to remember the lessons they were taught in school about the Revolutionary War, the Civil War, and the world wars. In these wars, men fought for their country’s freedom, tossing their own life behind them. Should the country that is being protected by brave men and women ignore their efforts and their struggles? No, and if they were to, they would have to hold no pride for their country, and even less for the struggles of their ancestors.
Every year, since 1971, Memorial Day has been observed as a national holiday in the United States, in which we honor those who died while protecting our country. To me, Memorial Day is a time where we as a nation, are reminded that all of the freedoms and rights that we take for granted, came at the cost of men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice while protecting our country. When Memorial Day befalls its designated date, I am reminded that people fought and died for my freedom and rights. I am reminded that if people didn’t fight for me and for this country, it wouldn’t be the great and prosperous country that it is. Therefore, I take pride in the fact that someone went to war and died to protect my freedoms. It gives me a feeling of
Veterans day is coming up so instead of celebrating it let's do all we can to show we appreciate them. I don’t know about you but my favorite hero group is the U.S.A. Military. Veterans are heroes because you're reading this. The fact that I was able to type this and the fact that you're able to understand this is why their heroes. Men and women have fought so we can go to school. Some people take that for advantage. Veterans fought in the Civil War so that slaves can be free. We should thank the Veterans alive, dead, younger, and older. You may not know it but, there are veterans all around you. I have been living in the same house with one for thirteen years and didn’t know he was one until I was ten. People are away from their children
In the Shadow of the Greatest Generation: The Americans Who Fought the Korean War, written in 2012, Melinda L. Pash mentions the effect of the conflict on soldiers when they returned. Pash argues Americans were too busy with their lives to even care about the conflict or the soldiers that were gradually making their way back home. Pash acknowledges that even academic scholars had been reluctant to challenge the initial hot war of the Cold War. The historical significance is that these soldiers served their country receiving little acknowledgement for their services and accomplishments. The returning veterans of the Korean War faced a very different America than had the veterans of the two world wars. The nature of the limited war meant
Former President of the United States of America, Ronald Reagan in his address at Arlington National Cemetery on Veterans Day 1985 testifies his views and respect for the Veterans who have served to protect the United States. Reagan’s aspiration in his address is to convey the standard that Veterans deserve. Through the speech, Reagan embraces a solemn tone to reveal that though he holds a high position his nobility is to be put aside to amplify the sacrifices the Veterans have made for the country and its population.
It is because of this oath, and this commitment, that we are obligated to support our veterans.
