MacArthur was a very brave and commanding general. His Thayer award speech acceptance passed the torch to the next generation of leaders. Throughout his speech, he uses logos to show what it means to be a military leader. He goes on to say how he will always feel “a sense of pride… which will be with me always: Duty, Honor, Country.” He uses this statement as a logo and achievement for these cadets to look up to. The three words “Duty, Honor, Country” also show logos because they are what every man or woman stands for in the military.
My theme that i find is very common in the testing trilogy is that there will be many obstacles to overcome in life. In the Testing trilogy, many obstacles that were faced occurred in the first person narrative and have a lot of emotions giving better detail on those obstacles. In The Testing, the author uses first person narrative to support the theme. For example on page 231 when they say, “I am so pleased with my efforts that i don't register the sound of something moving behind me. When i do, i barely have time

During his adventures growing up, Hoke 's calling has been one of a protector. Believing that through the Armed Forces, he can protect those he loves, those they love, and so forth.

Few men in the world demonstrate the ability to lead individuals to follow them while leaving a legacy that is emulated throughout history. Christopher Columbus did just that, facing challenges throughout his attempts to voyage across the ocean, he inspired people to follow him and changed the world forever. Providing influence, direction, and purpose, ADP 6-22 (2012) are all key pillars of army leadership that Christopher Columbus displayed throughout his life. His leadership qualities influenced me not only in my military career but my personal life as well. It is not always easy to take the path less traveled, to keep going when others doubt you, and have the fortitude to trust your instincts.
Fear exists all around us, there is no true freedom from it; it is a basic human emotion. At some point in a person’s life, they will experience fear. However, the ability to overcome this fear is what humanity recognizes as “freedom from fear.” Whether you are skeptical about jumping into a new relationship or the ones you care about are in great distress and need your help, fear will try to block you from achievement. Nevertheless, thinking will not overcome fear but action will; a statement that has remained consistently true throughout human history. When President Franklin D. Roosevelt delivered his Four Freedoms Speech, Americans heard their leader discuss the four freedoms that they should work toward for the future if they wish to
Since officers are the leaders in the military, they are the ones most often put in the position to gun-deck. Using moral theories learned in class, this paper will analyze the situation of gun-decking so the officer can come to the correct decision even if it will negatively affect them. To help me understand the situation presented, I had a conversation with my company officer, LT Amanda Kinsel. She is a Surface Warfare Officer and said that these situations come up in the fleet all the time. When an officer is asked to sign off on a planned maintenance task, loyalty to the mission, your chiefs, and your personal integrity are at stake.
Have you ever just thought about going to other countries and being able to say you served your country over there? Well I have and that is what I plan on doing right after High school. I am going to go to the Marine Corps and serving my country the way I feel I have to serve it. Going into the Marine Corps is something I have been trying to do, since I figured out what the Marines were. The Marine Corps is an elite branch of the military that requires hard work and dedication.
Reinhold Niebuhr 's quote does put things in perspective, we are a small snapshot in a much larger picture, we need to do our best with hope, faith and love to steer the ship in the proper direction. The quote also ties into Palmer 's idea that we shouldn’t be judging ours with effectiveness as the ultimate measure. It’s a little hard not to see the irony in the statement of not using effectiveness as our measure, especially after just finishing a business course which put emphasis on such measures. However, Niebuhr 's quote really does resonate the importance of our internal values versus our external success. Niebuhr’s quote also puts our so called “successes” into perspective, similar to a TED talk I recently watched by David Brooks,
I intend to show why producers of television shows should stop produciMilitary Bearing In a military setting, as a person that is in service whether it is the Army, Marine Corps, Navy, Air Force and the Coast Guard have customs and courtesies that is instilled from the very beginning. Knowing these customs and courtesies helps keep order like it has been through generation and generations.

One of the main extracurricular activity that is very helpful to me is NJROTC. It teaches cadets about the real world and the military world. The Naval Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps (NJROTC), is put in place to teach you more about the military, and also to teach students to become great leaders. Everyone in this program learn to be well disciplined. Without discipline there would be total chaos.
JROTC will remain vitally important well into the future. When war no longer threatens there will still be a need for leaders to, as Kennedy said, “explore the stars, conquer the deserts, eradicate disease, tap the ocean depths and encourage the arts and commerce.” The future will require leaders to fight different types of struggles, against global problems like poverty, hunger, oppression, and climate change. JROTC continues to mold young men and women to not only be aware of these problems, but capable and courageous enough to come up with and apply solutions. With what I have learned through JROTC, I am now part of a legacy of leadership. I am proud to wear the uniform, and I intend to honor it by helping change the world for the
