Another difference is the fact that we can infer that the bird in caged bird has been entrapped all his life whilst the bird in “Sympathy” has not (as he is not fearful of the outside). Overall both poems are very good and are very meaningful but at the end the poem “Sympathy” by Paul Laurence Dunbar is more meaningful because he includes many more chilling details about the bird and the conditions of the cage in which the bird spends all his
The unreal element is that this parrot has bird desires and a bird body alongside the memories of his human desires and his human body. It’s fun to think about, and I enjoyed immersion in bird life from a human perspective all the way to the end. Another favorite: “I was an egg hatched beneath her crouching body, I entered as a chick into her wet sky of a body” (106). If that unreal/magical aspect of the story were not there, it would just be a story about a guy who kills himself once chasing after his love, and kills himself a second time because he wants to be free of her. That story wouldn’t be nearly as good or thought-provoking as the story about the parrot is.
Another major factor of Thao's medication error was fatigue. That had been picking up extra shifts, including the one in which she worked on the fourth of July. Her lack of proper rest and not giving her mind time to receive those eight hours caused the confusion between the two IV containing the two kinds of medication. Despite the fact that Thao had been a nurse for several years prior to the event, Thao did not follow the proper protocol to ensure that patient's safety. She gave her un-prescribed medication which resulted in Jasmines death.
Many soldier left due to the lack of food, clothes, shoes, and equipment while other soldiers deserted not for the lack of supplies but to the opposition the Confederate policies and principles (1). However, the major cause of desertion was homesickness and to once again be with their families back home. Many men left the army after they became aware of the hardships and danger encountered by their families back home. Soldiers also deserted in an attempt to alleviate the hardships endured by their families and communities. Enlistment in the army kept men away from their homes for extended periods and destroyed the economic foundation of semi-subsistent mountain families.
Unknown to many of the Native Americans at the time of their capture, they were leaving their home behind forever as well as their livelihoods. When General Scott and his men came and arrived to force people out of their homes, many people “did not have blankets and many of them had been driven from home barefooted”(Burnett). At the time of their capture, they were not given any information, which made their journey very brutal considering many of them did not have the proper protection from the harsh weather. As they started on their long journey “many of the children rose to their feet and waved their little hands good-by to their mountain homes, knowing they were leaving them forever”(Burnett). The people that were left in the tribe at the time did not sign up to leave their homes, which demonstrates how powerless they were over the invasion.
Summary The movie that I watched for this assignment was “Platoon”. It is about Chris Taylor an individual who left college to go into the military for infantry and combat. But since Taylor didn 't have any prior training, he risked his life and that of the rest of the troops when he gets injured during an Ambush. Throughout the film, Sargent Barnes and Taylor get in a dissagreeance and were threatening each other but through time Taylor showed the way he was thinking by attacking the Vietnamese village that they are staking out without understanding the grieving from the villagers.
We have a hard time finding food. I want to fight for my country but with little food and not enough people I think we will die. We have been fighting for 2 days and almost half of the soldiers are dead.

I was mentally hard on myself for every mistake and everything thing that I did because of my father, I never was good enough, never satisfied with anything I achieved. Because of my determination of wanting my father to be proud of me, in the military I received metals for sharp shooter and grenades, it’s pretty obvious who I thought about while I was training. Another great way to release frustration. My experience in the military change me in ways that would benefit me in my everyday life. I knew my father would be proud and he was until I got released from the military a couple of months after 911 took place.
In December of 1777, American General George Washington and his men took shelter at Valley Forge for the winter. It was 18 miles northwest of the British camp in Philadelphia, and Washington thought it was a perfect spot. But that was not the case for the soldiers. The soldiers had it rough, and many did not want to enlist for the army after. Today, many people wonder if they would stay with George Washington, or not enlist and go home back to their families.
What horrible things did the continental army have to suffer in their six- month encampment? They experienced hunger, diseases, and death. Since it was cold some couldn 't bathe causing them to have bad hygiene. Also at the time smallpox and pneumonia was being spread. Since there weren 't many medical supplies, some couldn 't be treated.
They were smaller than most men so the standard uniforms didn’t fit them so they had to scavenge the battlefield for equipment and uniforms. They had important jobs
I have had similar experiences, not only within my aviation unit, but also when I was a field artillery crew member. Our last NTC rotation was hampered very much with maintenance issues and having parts brought out to us in a timely manner. This is something that could have been anticipated with our unit since it’s an Apache battalion. Considering the principles of sustainment, our unit should have probably anticipated maintenance issues and kept more parts on hand. I understand that foreseeing such issues is not an easy task at all, however, there were missions that could have not been accomplished if it was not for the outgoing maintainers that we had at the National Training Center with
Returning to the 4th Armored Brigade Combat Team (ABCT) to assume command as the brigade commander brings me much joy to be reunited with great Non-Commission Officers and Officers that I have previously served with. Unfortunately, this brigade is no longer the brigade I remember when I commanded a battalion within the 4th ABCT not so long ago. In the last 30 days, I have had the opportunity to observe the ABCT and review a multitude of historical documents to assess the state of the brigade. During my observation, I believe the critical leadership problem in the 4th ABCT’s is the lack of vision for the brigade. Therefore, this critical problem has led to other challenging issues within the brigade.
