Agent Orange is a dioxin, defoliant, and a mix of herbicides that have affected many people for the past 4 generations. During the Vietnam War the US military decided to spray this dioxin in the jungles of Vietnam and the Korean demilitarized zone to remove trees and dense tropical foliage that provided enemy cover. From the Vietnam War until now, many lives have been ruined and harmed due to Agent Orange and the people who have been exposed to this chemical have either had kids with birth defects or have obtained a disease or sickness as they age and through scientific research it was found that Agent Orange was the cause of these occurrences. Due to the many horrific damages from Agent Orange the US Congress had created the Agent Orange act of 1991 in order to help those who are eligible, receive certain benefits. Today I 'm going to be telling you several reasons why the Agent Orange Act of 1991 should be renewed for the next 5 years.
Should the Draft Be Reinstated? (Consequences of the United States Military Draft) The United States issued a military draft in 1940 in order to fill the spots of the armed forces that were not being filled voluntarily. It was a safety net in order for America to know that we would have back up if anything were to happen in the world.
Veteran’s all over the United States are retiring, getting less and less of the benefits that they used to. My brother was going to enlist and asked some people whether or not he should. They said they weren't going to tell him not to enlist, but they did say that it's not as beneficial as it was in the past. You don’t get as many benefits when you come back, as you used to. This isn’t something that should be happening.
1. All branches of the United States military have policies that address the issue of disabled service members; do you think that there should be a policy change? Explain your answer (not just a yes or no), and feel free to use examples. All of the United States militaries do address the issue of the disabled service member. If a military person who suffered an injury and become disabled. Due, to the severeness of the disability they can reenlist in the arm forces if they can requalify.
The goals to bring awareness to the citizens of the US that veterans homelessness is a growing social problem in our society and that they need more assistants. Not only does this problem affect our veterans physically emotionally and mentally, it also affects how america 's youth perceives the government due to their neglect of our homeless vertarans.
Veterans today face many challenges still from when they fought in the war. After they have served in the military they go home to their families. For a while though the family is not used to that mom or dad back and, for the kids it is weird because they haven 't been around that parent and they don 't really talk to that parent. Veterans also get flash backs from war also so they are sometimes get scared or they get really weird.
Do you have a veteran in your family and live in Kentucky? If you do then you must be bamboozled when Veteran's Day rolls around and you don't get to spend the day with them and thank them for their services to this great nation and preserving our freedom. Less than 1% of Kentucky's schools are on a delay or canceled. You may ask "But this is Veteran's Day one of the most important days to our nation!?! Should schools really be on regular schedule?"
You keep walking and then look away as if there is nothing you can do, hoping that someone else will be able to help. It is time to give back and make a difference in the lives of Veterans. Leaving something different can be a scary experience. One of the hardest situations ever occurred to me is not doing what was expected of me. Always afraid to move against the tide, though I decided that was a valuable skill that I should leave.
America’s Military Heroes are in the airports, in the stores, in the churches and classrooms; they are walking on the streets, sitting on the trains, and on the planes. Often, I spot them by their uniform, camo duffle-bag, or their hats with patches and the names of the military branches on them. When I recognize them, I stop what I am doing and catch up to them and get their attention. “Sir? Excuse me, sir?” or, “Ma’am? Excuse me, ma’am?”
Throughout the history of the United States, war has become a very questionable topic. The simple idea of war already exudes a barbaric resolve to conflict, but yet it still occurs and even gets support from the public most of the time. Out of all of the many wars the United States has been through, one of the few that stood out to be very unpopular among the public was the Vietnam War. Of course, war itself already contracts negative opinions from many people, but the Vietnam War, in particular, was one of the most hated by almost all people on the home front. It is a subject of question as to why this war, compared to previous ones the United States has been in, was often ridiculed instead of supported during its time.
