Duty is defined as Fulfill your obligations. Respect is to treat people as they should be treated. Selfless Service is putting the welfare of the Nation, the Army and your subordinates before your own. Honor is simply living up to the Army Values. Integrity is doing what is right legally and morally.
Trust which is “assured reliance on the character, ability, strength, or truth of someone or something in which confidence is place” (Merriam-Webster's Learner's Dictionary, 1828). Confidence which is “faith or belief that one will act in a right, proper, or effective way” (Merriam-Webster's Learner's Dictionary, 1828). When abuse of power is present in a organizations, Soldiers loose trust on their leaders as they will not be doing things for the better but just because he or she said so. At the same time Soldiers have to be able to understand the difference and cannot go by their assumptions. Trust is one of the easiest attribute to loose and the hardest to get back.
Importance of Rank Structure “Military ranks are a system of hierarchical relationships in armed forces, police, intelligence agencies or other institutions organized along military lines. Military ranks and the military rank system define among others dominance, authority, as well as roles and responsibility in a military hierarchy. The military rank system incorporates the principles of exercising power and authority, and the military chain of command – the succession of commanders superior to subordinates through which command is exercised – constructs an important component for organized collective action.” The Marine Corps values rank structure and respect to that rank structure even if you are completely in the right to correct or call out a higher rank on something they did wrong it is demanded of you to use the upmost possible tact and respect. From Private to Sergeant Major of the Marine Corps this applies. One saying I learned that comes to mind, in regard to respecting rank structure, “if you respect the man you respect the rank.” I do my best to live by this in the Marine Corps.
The society of Rome and Han China demonstrated the values of Ancient Rome. Ovid, an Ancient Roman poet, wrote “don’t delight in curling your hair with tongs” in regard to how to look in public places (PSR 58). The fact that he, a Roman, advocated remaining unadorned in appearance reveals simplicity because the most basic form of societal living was supported by not “delighting” in unnecessarily beautifying oneself. The Han concept of filial piety centralizes on respecting your elders and those who are superior to you (Presentation Society and Culture). As a result, the side of honesty that deals with fairness in conduct is brought out by filial piety because of the respectful treatment of other people required by it.
The shift to a military government was reasoning behind the samurai class and evident through the loyal and honorable, yet stoic and disciplined, culture of this time (“Kamakura Period”). The bushido code faced much outside influence, but core emphasis was placed on living frugally, upholding honor, and honing athletic and mental strength in order to remain fearless during battle. The Tokugawa period
Machiavelli fundamentally believed that the states of pre-modern Europe should strive to emulate the war practices of ancient Romans during the Roman Republic period. Thus, he asserted that war should not be the primary calling of European men. Rather, Machiavelli stressed the vital importance of maintaining one’s nonmilitary occupation during times of peace. Machiavelli further asserted that a man’s decision to be inducted into the military should be based on a mixture of obligation and utter willingness to serve the state and its prince. Machiavelli also maintained that the success and continuance of an army was contingent upon timely and consistent payment, and constant drill and discipline, for “well ordered men, armed as well as unarmed,
How does this idea translate into our reality? The answer, I submit, is that it doesn 't. Rather, it translates into our realities; for every human being, courage will mean something different, and all definitions are quite valid. For example, it seems to be a common idea amongst the American people that our military embodies concepts such as courage, patriotism, and selflessness, and that our soldiers deserve a deep respect for their service. Someone more personally detached from the military might not be as inclined to agree with this idea as, say, someone who lives near a military area, or someone with family members in the military- however, the idea is still just as valid.
He knows of numerous people who have issues because of running. He believes running is hard on the body, a waste of time, and that our team is okay. Running isn't bad for the body with the right equipment. Running is actually great cardio and for losing weight. My dad not approving of my choice to run affected me at first by making me feel bad because I want to make him proud, but now I don't care.
Use of Rhetorical Appeals in “Duty,Honor, Country” The effectiveness of rhetorical devices is no better illustrated than in the essay “Duty, Honor, Country” by General Douglas MacArthur. Throughout this piece the tone and opinion is made clear without being heavy handed making the piece infinitely more relatable. MacArthur’s use of the socratic appeals(Ethos,Pathos and Logos), not only makes the reader contemplate what he is saying but how it is being said. Establishing one's own credibility is a challenge often faced by both speakers and writers. How do you get an Audience to trust you?
“So if spitting in my face and threatening me saved Mayella Ewell one extra beating, that’s something I’ll gladly take.” (Lee 222). Compassion transformed the way Atticus viewed courage, as he found compassion at the heart of his decisions. The true meaning of courage to Atticus meant something more important than ??????. This just proves to show how Atticus was a leader and not a follower, how he managed to be different. Wisdom was knowing the right path to take but his integrity was what led him to choose to take the right
