The contribution presented to my generation by America is the gift of freedom. Even though freedom may seem as if it is free many veterans lost their lives to ensure we had freedom. There are other gifts from America to my generation such as edification and technology. The rewards of freedom were able to be received because of countless veterans sacrificed their lives so we could live in a free country. Over the past two-hundred forty-two years, several veterans lose their lives everyday so we can live unreservedly.
Veterans day is a very important day in America (it’s not just an excuse to leave work) Veterans Day is when we remember all of the men and women fighting -and have fought- to keep the liberties and freedoms we enjoy every day. We as American's have grown accustomed to this (and many other) wars, we live in a society that has been affected by the wars so much we chose to neglect the fact that people are dying because of it. We choose not to think of this because it might depress us but, it is the truth. Honestly without days like this where we look and see the people it affects almost as much as the victims, the soldiers. we take all the spoils of the war they fight and most times choose to deny them the certain thing because of their work in the wars.
When a soldier joins the military, he isn’t just joining to fight for his country, he’s joining a brotherhood that lasts forever.Throughout the course of history, soldiers have encountered inexplicable experiences. These experiences are so traumatic that they cause a life full of hardship.Fortunately, they are not alone.Soldiers in the armed forces share common similarities such as: adapting to civilian life, going through failed marriages, and forming a bond with one another. After World War I had ended the government allowed the remaining troops to be released back into society. Allowing them back into society without being checked lead to many consequences .Too many troops were coming home with a disorder called PTSD, this caused them to live a stressful life.Current day, the military views this as a high priority. Beth Wegner says “For soldiers currently returning home from deployment there are many resources available to them to make the reintegration process easier.
But they are much more than just lifeless soldiers who fought at war. They are our ancestors, our heritage, maybe even our grandparents, their brothers, their mates and our future. These soldiers, OUR soldiers, made the choice to leave their beloved families behind and walk into a war zone. They were not forced to join this army; they were not chosen to join, they chose to join. Our soldiers prepared for months, years even but war ended many lives.
soldiers are fighting everyday for our country. By the time you’ve read this essay, a U.S. soldier has passed away. These soldiers have to be separated from their loved ones and family. Not all soldiers will return back to their families. Not only are they fighting for our country, but also sacrificing their lives for others.
I felt really good recognizing the military families. It is not only the people who serve in the military, but their families also. Yes, it is their family member who goes through weeks and weeks or training, then fights for their country and what they believe in to protect their loved ones. The soldiers’ family also has to go without their family member and pray that everything will be okay, or that the soldiers will not get called into battle. When they wake up, they have no idea of what they will face, which is taking a risk, but those are things that the soldiers are willing to
In the film, Hacksaw Ridge a combat medic by the name of Desmond Doss refuses to go into combat without any type of weapon. In the movie, it is pointed out that it is his right not to bear arms, just as much as it is other people’s right to bear arms. Throughout the movie, Private Doss is literally beaten for his beliefs and desire to continue on fighting for what he believes in. The things that Private Doss did and sacrificed for his beliefs saved the lives of more than 50 lives and changed the hearts of even more. The first leadership quality seen in the movie is when Private Doss enlisted in the army.
I cannot thank all the coaches, teammates, and other wrestlers across the country for the great lesson they taught me. The lesson being very cliché, but very near and dear to my heart. “When you love something, you will never work a day in your life”. That quote cannot represent the deep feelings I have gained for such a sport that has taught me so much. Not only about myself but also about real
We don 't typically stop to think about our freedom, it is something most of us are guilty of taking for granted. Even when our freedom is brought to our attention, it is only a brief thought quickly pushed to the back of our minds. Most of us are too focused on our own hardships and shortcomings. However, there are a select few who have come to the realization that this freedom is a highly valued prize. These are the people that fight our battles for us because they value the safe haven that our country is.
This has bred a selfish and self loving society that outright refuses to sacrifice to help anyone but themselves. As much as Americans may hate to admit it, our individual rights must occasionally be overlooked to protect the whole of our country. I have witnessed many people I love enter into the armed forced for the protection of our country and their example of self sacrifice is an example for all. Soldiers
Just the sound of some fireworks could trigger an episode and they are truly scared for their lives. A lot of times these combat veterans go through these experiences and don’t have a chance to really see it for what it was. Instead they bottle of their emotions and never have a chance to process. It is important that you are able to process what happened to you and learn from it, it can be tough when you are in the military and they are assigning you to missions constantly. Sean Gobin has my vote he has a great cause and I hope that more veterans will be able to take advantage of this program and process what they have gone
I will support and risk everything for is supporting our veterans. Without them, how would life be now? They risk everything for us, so why don’t we do the same for them. The WW2 generation known as the greatest generation, they are the greatest generation because no one could do what they did. Therefore, the ones lost or the ones that are living out on the street need to keep living and their stories are heard.
I chose this topic because everywhere I go, I see veterans, homeless and disabled, standing or slumped in a position of despair and hopelessness. These veterans are the results of fighting for our country and safety and now left in a positions of needing someone to fight for them. That should be the "TOP" priority of our Veteran Affairs Administration and reflected in their webpage. We now have so many veterans from so many different facets of life and ethnic backgrounds that the majority of them absolutely no support or hope. What in being done to encourage, support and direct our non famous and not rich veterans who find themselves in a "you 're served us well but you 're on your own now" position?
Going through hard times can make people appreciate life more because they cherish the good moments they have. During the Civil War, our nation was divided. An abundance of men, from the north and south, were leaving their families behind to fight. Wives being left alone to support the family. People receiving news daily that their loved ones would not be returning home.
Zach’s Reflection Freedom is something we often take for granted and do not realize how much it can impact our life. But how did we earn that freedom and how do we keep that freedom that we so often enjoy without thinking about it? It is because of the brave men and women who are willing to sacrifice everything including their lives to defend our rights and Country. How do these brave men and women get treated after serving our Country is an important issue, which is where originations like the Department of Veteran Affairs (VA), Disabled American Veterans (DAV), and Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) come in to help. After serving in the military for 6 years I learned there is no stronger form of brotherhood.
