Persistence, determination, and dedication have made my move to New York successful. I left my family and friends in Puerto Rico for the opportunity to attend a good college with ROTC. I researched all area schools that offered JROTC and CAP programs before moving. I have taken full advantage of all the educational opportunities available to me. I graduated at the top 8% of my class.
Hello fellow classmate! I 'm excited to start that amazing journay with you all! I wish you all luck! I 'm currently living in Yanceyville, NC with my 3 wonderful kids. I received my BSW from the UNC Greensboro in 2011.
Life in the war front is completely different than what I had imagined. As a Nursing Sister, or Bluebird, my job never ends, which makes writing in this journal extremely difficult. So many men come in with disgusting wounds, I feel sick just thinking about it even though I have nursing experience back home. I only joined the Royal Canadian Army Medical Corps because father decided to join the war front himself. I understand that as a militant who has aided in previous military acts would feel responsible to join the war but, he also has responsibilities at home.
Through high school my grades weren’t the best. I enjoyed challenging classes, but they were a lot of work. Between the work load and problems at home, I didn’t keep up well. By spring of my senior year I realized my hopes of leaving the small town I lived in weren’t going to happen. A friend who worked at the local community college contacted me about attending classes in the fall.
Have you ever dreamed of entering the law enforcement field right out of highschool? After some research you’ll probably realize you can’t until you're 21. What if I told you I had a career that let you enter the Law enforcement field as early as 17? You’ll be getting on the job training by highly trained professionals 4 years earlier then most! This gives you a great jump start on your career and even includes some great benefits!
The United States military I consider one of the best in the world which is one reason I love learning about it. The U.S. military is well funded and generally has some of the newest and most advanced technology out there such as a railgun that fires ferrous projectiles using magnets to 3 times the speed of sound. For reasons like this I also want to join the marines to get to use technology like that. My family has joined the military often and it’s usually the navy. One of my cozens is in the navy and so was my uncle who operated the sonar on a Cleveland class cruiser which was apparently hit by a torpedo.
As an American, I enjoy many freedoms that people from other countries don’t. That may not seem fair, and it really isn’t, but I am grateful that I have these freedoms. I have the freedom of life. I don’t have to worry every day that I am going to die. I don’t live in a place where I am under attack.
Introduction A serious public health problem that causes pain, suffering, and loss to families, communities, and individuals, suicide is a serious issue within our society. Historically, suicide among U.S. service members were approximately half the rate of their civilian counterparts. Within the last fourteen years in the United States, suicide has been the tenth leading cause of death. When comparing the rate of suicide in America, Veterans have had a higher rate of suicide and climbing faster than in the general population of the United States.
In my opinion, i’ve never considered myself to actually have a true home. Always on the move my family had been, the main reason being we were a military family. For me, it all began in Oklahoma for two years, then to Germany for another two, and back to the states for another six. And luckily, I only had changed schools three times. I continued to have to repeat the utter pain having to leave my old friends behind, went over the same routine of adjusting to a new environment, and simply being unable to create and keep strong ties with anything.
I have been a member of the United States Air Force for six years, and over the course of my enlistment, I have volunteered an average of two times per year. Volunteering is totally optional in the military, but required to stand out among your peers. Volunteering was a great way to develop my professionalism and personality. Recently I personally set up an event with the local community that not only involved cultural integration but strengthened myself as a leader. Dealing with different cultures and having a language barrier can be difficult sometimes.
