My Grandpa inspired me to think more about veterans on Veterans Day because of what he has been through and what he did for the family. He was a South Vietnamese soldier during the Vietnam War and worked along with the American soldiers there. After the Vietnam war ended in 1975, things started becoming miserable for people like him in South Vietnam, so he escaped from Vietnam by boat and went to the United States. He left when my Dad, uncle, and aunt were babies. Fifteen years later, he sponsored my grandma, Dad, uncle, and aunt to come and live in the United States with him.
Hello fellow students and Professor Fuchs, It is very nice to meet you. My formal name is Douglas, but please call me Doug. My family only calls me Douglas and it actually upsets me when anyone outside my family calls me Douglas. I am originally from the hot humid sandy beaches of Saint Petersburg, FL unfortunately I have not lived there since 2005, but occasionally I go back to visit. Currently I am finishing up my Active Duty time in the Army of 11 years.
I have decided to not re-enlist for three reasons which are bad housing, disease, and bad clothing. I remember how amazed I was when we won the battle in Trenton. That was a day that will always be remembered. I never knew how much the Boston Tea Party in 1773 would impact my live today. I was so happy when I got word in 1776, that the Declaration of Independence had been written by Thomas Jefferson.
He wanted to reflect the highest moral principals in his foreign policy but I believe Carter had high expectations for his foreign policy but he did not know how to meet them. His principals can be seen clearly from his inaugural address when he said: “Our commitment to human rights must be absolute, our laws fair, our national beauty preserved, the powerful must not persecute the weak, and human dignity must be enhanced.” (Carter, 1997). He was focusing on human rights, his annual submission by the Department of State of a full and complete report on human rights practices around the world (“Carter's Foreign
There are a lot of causes for PTSD but the most common cause is being a soldier from war. In the war, Terry’s father witnessed all of the other soldiers deaths. Being the only man left, he hid under a dead soldiers body to live the night. (54) PTSD is caused by any trauma that could be life threatening. Not only being apart of a traumatic experience, witnessing an event could also cause PTSD.
Today, some soldiers still have that feeling, but not quite as strong as back then. During the World War II, Joseph Heller joined the Army Air Corps, just like Yossarian. He was inspired to create the character of Yossarian based on his friend who also served in the Army with him. During combat, men see a lot of terrible things, suffer the death of their friends, and later on realize how it is that the whole system really works like. Yossarian has some principles that do not seem as the most common ones to be thinking about when fighting a war.
They have been friends since their childhood and when Owen mistakenly kills John’s mother, their friendship actually grows stronger. During the Vietnam War draft, John begins to worry that he will be called to serve as his graduate student deferment will shortly expire. However, Owen does his research and discovers a potential soldier can escape combat if a portion of one his digits is missing. In an effort to save John from being forced to go, Owen uses a diamond knife from his father’s quarry to cut off a part of John’s finger. In the most obvious way, this displays Owen’s clear affection for John.
The movie itself can also be deemed credible because it was partially based on a true story. It was based on the Niland brothers, four siblings who all served in the US Army during World War II. Three of the four brothers, Robert, Preston, and Edward, were supposedly killed in action, which caused their remaining brother, Fritz (whom the character Private Ryan was based on) to be shipped back to America so that the Niland family wouldn’t lose all of their sons. For the pathos in this trailer, one can just conclude that the whole trailer is involved in pathos because to establish emotion and connect to the audience or in this case the viewers of this trailer the pathos can be the music in the background, the sad expression the General has the video, and the things said in the letter all have the emotional appeal. With the sad background music according to the directors of this movie and trailer, the music can be used to express the feeling of how emotional and traumatizing the effect of after and before the war
In the song Indian Sunset by Elton John and Bernie Taupin show different ways of how others identity has affected people you love are affected and the ways you act to change your identity. In the song the Indian Tribe is attacked and got attacked in his being forced to leave their area this caused many loved ones to be killed and what the quote leads to is have one soldier of the tribe thought that death would be the best way for peace. “And the red sun sinks at last into the hills of gold. And peace to this young warrior comes with a bullet hole.” ( John and Taupin ) The quote above reflects how different situations evolve or how the outcome end is based on a person's identity. in the quotation you can see how one thought that that was the fastest way to paste because a lot of his loved ones had been killed.
United States citizens needed something to believe in and it was our troops, sent out to seek revenge for the loss of life in the September 11 attacks. There is no doubt that American public opinion has changed over time, but, in the beginning, there was a positive reception to the invasion of Iraq (Bush 1). Though the positive opinions have dwindled, they have not been erased. As a country, America has come a long way from the desperation felt at the beginning of the Iraq war. This change has lead to several new developments ‘post-mortem’ (Powell 1).

My service to the army at Valley Forge is soon ending.I have decided to re-enlist for three reasons which are: Hope, the army needs me, and for my family and the hope of surviving. The event that caused this whole war to occur were the protesting and the Boston Tea party that happened in 1773. I felt that the Boston Tea Party was a right and wrong decision when it happened because we should not use violence to cooperate with our “enemies”, we should use reason. Even though the British kind of deserved that protest. Also the Declaration of Independence caused the war by angering the British in 1776.
This was the response of President Bush when someone shouted, “We can’t hear you,” as he was touring the wreckage of 9-11. His response was a promise that the suffering would be avenged. A great harm and loss had been done to the American people. Other people around the world felt the grief of the American people. A great people had been moved to defend a great country.
