They are also like professional athletes because the soldiers of the Army strive to be the greatest at what they do. The Army Profession is a special combination of experts gifted with the knowledge of design, support vowing to serve and defend the constitution and the people of America. The Army Profession is made up of uniformed and non-uniformed members. Both Professionals have to take the Army oath and become sworn in. All Army Professionals have an obligation to gain knowledge and skills, then pass it on to their comrades.
President Obama, and the previous presidents have endeavored to “preserve the state in a sea of insecurity” (Jones and Smith n.pag). This is indeed, what Machiavelli’s Art of War proposes. As Commander-in-Chief, Obama implied the following in his speech that: “The virtu of the soldiers is worth more than a multitude, and the site is often of more benefit than virtu” (Evans n.pag). The commitment of the State is, therefore, to serve the men and women in uniform who have served the country by risking their lives. Thus, the virtu of the United States of America, and its statecraft (as Jones and Martin put it) is firmly based in the principles proposed by Obama in his speech.
General Douglas MacArthur was one of the bravest and most commanding general the United States has ever had. Douglas MacArthur was a military general who led troops in WWII and Korea. His Thayer Award Acceptance Address given at West Point Military School went through ethos, logos and militaristic diction to commemorate and entrust the new West Point Cadets who would one day lead our country. To change the speech to a different audience, one would have to use more pathos and common diction to make the speech have a different feel and audience, but maintain the same message. MacArthur was a very brave and commanding general.
War between your body and Your Country Walter Reuther is quoted as saying, “There is no greater calling than to serve your fellow men. There is no greater contribution than to help the weak. There is no greater satisfaction than to have done it well.” Joining the military is a significant event of my life. The military has an effect on daily lives, from your personal to professional level. The military is all about following orders.
A more robust accessions program is crucial to the future of the warrant officer cohort. This is the first step in selecting and developing our future leaders within our ranks. First and foremost our current warrant officers must be the honest broker when recommending a soldier. If a soldier does not meet the technical competencies that are required of them in the position they are currently serving then how can they be expected to be the future of our cohort. The senior warrant officer who is recommending the applicant must hold the value of the warrant officer cohort above his or her own loyalty to the person they are recommending.
Army Knowledge Management (AKM) is important to Senior Warrant Officers as our cohort continues to grow, it will continue to be even more important in the future. We as a force need to follow the principles of AKM so that we are prepared for battle and future conflicts as we currently exist in a rapidly evolving operational environment, where knowledge and information are just as critical to the success of battle as weapons and Soldiers are. Out of the twelve principles outlined in the “Army Knowledge Management Principles” paper I feel that principles four and eleven are the most important to a Senior Warrant Officer, in making a stronger and more agile force. According to the “Army Knowledge Management Principles” paper, principle four states that we should “use every interaction whether face-to-face or virtual as an opportunity to acquire and share knowledge” (p. 4). As a Senior Warrant Officer our bread and butter is knowledge and being able to gain and share it.
Soldiers are proud to be in the Army as well as Seaman are proud to be in the Navy. Yet, once a military person moves to the joint staff then it is time to see the military as one big team. General Marshall spoke of this interservice division as challenging to him. Marshal was trying to defeat Hitler in Europe as General MacArthur led the Army in the Pacific. On the other hand, Admiral king was in Washington, and Admiral Nimitz in the Pacific wanted the Navy to take charge and assume command.
Valley Forge Document Based Question After a detailed analysis of the documents, it is very clear that if I was a soldier in the continental army I would stay in the army for the following important reasons: first, the urgent need of healthy and strong soldiers to fight against the British (Document A and Document C), second, the visit of the Congressional committee and hope for support (Document B and External Source 1) and finally, the last reason I would stay in the army because of Paine’s great words and I wouldn’t want to be a summer soldier (Document D and External Source 2). During the American Revolution, it is very important to notice that in the town of Valley Forge the illness and death estimates increased. This resulted in a rapid decrease of the total amount of soldier in the town. According to the statistics in Document A, it is very clear that the total number of soldier enrolled in the Valley Forge camp decreased in a period of approximately three months. To be accurate around 1800 – 2000 soldiers died around this time period.
To illustrate, Yi Hangno in 1866, as junior assistant secretary affiliated to the Royal Secretariat, realized the necessity of building military force and the support from the people to depend the national physical and economic boundaries from the Western invasion because the nation realized China’s incapability to protect Korea from Western invasion. Thus, Yi wanted qualified officials who can promote and recruit “a militia of loyal and dependable men to assist the government forces” and who can “enrich the people and cause them to look up to the king” (238). In order to do so, Yi called upon Confucian principle, “a rule by moral principle as in the past” (237). The officials should be “respected and trusted”, in order to maintain “hierarchical order of the political system” to depend the foreign invasion
