He also meets two new friends name Tjaden and Westhus, who they became friends with when they enlisted for the war. The six of them altogether are the same age. The next day, they woke up for breakfast, and the cook made 150 meals, but can only give out 80 of the meals for the 80 soldiers that are left. However, this dissatisfied the soldiers, and they explain that the food is rationalized, they should be the ones getting the remaining food to have a greater ration of food, instead of the food going to waste and being thrown away. After the 80 men argued with the cook, the cook finally gave up, and gave the rest of the remaining food to the rest of the soldiers, although the cook warn them that they could get in trouble for what they have
He was very proud of his son becoming a Marine he knew that they had a purpose and it was “the defense of our country and the loyalty to the Corps.”(554) Two year later his son was selected to represent his platoon as “Marine of the Quarter”(554) an honor for any Marine; the date was September 10, 2001. On September 11, 2001 the towers came down in New York City as the world watch. Frank was afraid for his son and just wanted “to hold onto his son for dear life.”(554) John reassured his father and told him” All you have to do with yourself is worry.”(554) Frank knew his son had a job to do and was frustrated that he could do nothing. He watched on television as first responders and military personnel tried to find survivors. He felt proud of his son for being in the military and could look the other “men and women in uniform in the eye”(554) because his son
Throughout the story Paul shows that he cares about his comrades by protecting them from the dangers of war, and he also displays that he will guide them in war. Paul uses his skills of intelligence to guide his team in the trenches and at the front, and he passes on his knowledge and tricks of war to the new recruits. Not many soldiers have all of these qualities, which makes Paul stand out more than his comrades. Even today some men don't express the passion and leadership Paul shows in All Quiet on the Western Front, which brings up the fact that the war needs more men like Paul. To sum up, Paul is an honest and true man who will always be there for his comrades when needed, and he is a man the troops are proud to say is a patriotic
Serving in the military is a family tradition. I am grateful for all the opportunities that this country gives to its citizens and I felt like joining the military was a great way to give back to it. I took an oath of justice in defense of the liberties; to preserve peace and to calm the winds of war (Scott, 1). Being a veteran is now something that is part of me and describes myself. Since I joined the military straight out of high school, I decided to go back into school and pursue a career in business marketing.
They all felt the sadness of Curt Lemon, Kiowa, and the others they lost. Death changes people, it puts a hardness in their heart when they don't want to deal with the pain. Although death is a part of life it's not easy and never gets easier. In death and loss a bond is formed and it is a stronger bond than any other. Comparable to a mother daughter bond, brotherhood never goes away no matter how much time passes.
Can’t erase what written in ink. Caitlin and her dad are struggling with coping over the loss of son and brother Devon in the novel “Mockingbird” by Kathryn Erskine. The family that just keeps shrinking is being constantly reminded of Devon. The family is being forced to watch all of the news reports on the school shooter that took Devons life. For Caitlin that is what she strives for but for her dad it is his worst fear.
I read this book many times during the summer, and after this encounter, I suddenly found that what he said was very relatable to the idea of the book. In “Ender 's Game”, Ender was only 8 years old (I think) when he was sent to Command School to be a commander in the humans vs. buggers war. Most people thought that the whole idea of letting a 8 year old child be the person their fate depends on was preposterous. Ender knew that the people were right, but he believed in himself and his cause. He finally defeated the buggers, and led the humans to victory.
At first, the despair stuck with me, and the job terrified me. Despite cautious remarks of working with gang members - two weeks into the program - I felt connected to the regular families who showed up for the SNL activities. One family in particular stood out as proof that I had made an impact, the Rodriguez family. Richard, their twelve-year-old son openly expressed his future as one being doomed for failure. Richard began telling me about his life:
The only time someone asks Jake what he is feeling is during the many interviews the audience hears about. In almost all the interviews Jake misbehaves, this shows something is bothering him. Even at the end of the play, he throws his favorite and fragile figurine at his grandma. Earlier in the book, he cried when the toy was broken, now he purposely broke it. This signifies a major change in Jakes attitude and relays that he is not happy anymore.
Personal Narrative Tackle football at Waterford Sabercats was hard for me when I first started. The first week was running non stop and it wore me out. “You are almost done,” I remember my dad telling me when we were doing an exhausting dill. But as the week progressed, I got used to the conditioning, but it still hurt. The coach announced that we would receive our pads the next week, but you had to complete five days of conditioning.
