Colder Than Hell: A Marine Rifle Company at Chosin Reservoir was written and published by Joseph R. Owen in 1996. This book gives us a riveting point-of-view of the early and uncertain days of the Korean War through the eyes of Owen himself, as a platoon leader (PL) in a Marine rifle company. As a PL of a mortar section in Baker-One-Seven-Baker Company, 1st Battalion, 7th Marine Regiment- Owen witnessed his hastily assembled men of a few regulars and reservists (who to mention some that have not gone to boot camp) quickly harden into the superb Baker-One-Seven known today. He makes it known quickly (in the foreword and the preface) that some of the major problems he initially encountered was due to how unprepared his unit was. Owen makes the
I spoke with my SEL, Senior Chief Reynolds, about the gun-decking case and the consequences that gun-decking can have in the fleet. As we discussed this case, Senior Chief stressed the importance of planning, loyalty, and trust. He told me that passing a command inspection is a big deal and requires an immense amount of planning and preparation. He said it was obvious that these sailors were not keeping the ship in fight mode and were not performing as war fighters in the ready. While passing this inspection can be very crucial in influencing the reputations of everyone from the division officer to the skipper, he emphasized there is never an appropriate time and place for gun-decking. He also explained the importance of having
This book begins immediately with some shocking statistics that will allow the police officers in the ethics course to see just how prevalent the code of silence can be. Quinn reports, “only 39 percent of police officers believe fellow officers will report serious criminal violations involving the abuse of authority,” and “52,4 percent of police officers agreed, “It is not unusual for a police officer to turn a blind eye to improper conduct by other officers” (4). The book goes on to discuss why officers partake in the code of silence. A scenario given by the author describes an officer who reports to a domestic violence call and ends up being beaten by the offender. The offender would have killed the officer if it were not for the back up that arrived. The back-up officers resort to beating the suspect within inches of his life. The suspect survives, but does not remember the attack. The initial officer is questioned about what happened to her attacker and she responds by saying she did not see. This officer has now participated in the code of silence by not telling Internal Affairs about the excessive force used by her fellow officers (Quinn 14-18). This scenario shows how easy it can be for officers to abide by the code of silence and how the code of silence can perpetrate a cycle of violence among police officers when the believe fellow officers
Have you ever wondered what happens when a gun fires? I have been hunting for almost all my life and I have started to wonder about this. For my science fair project I 'm going to find the reaction of explosions. I also find this interesting because I want to make guns someday. I believe that understanding the Chemistry and Physics of explosions may help me to find the answer to my question.
He emphasizes how unsound tactical decision-making usually accompanies every situation that produces negative or harmful results. Nevertheless, although it is frequently possible for others to identify the officer’s mistake upon review of an incident, Noble explains how this fails to consider the context and complexity of the entire situation. As an example, the author uses the idea of a courtroom judge critically examining the decisions of an officer who was involved in a failed situation. The judge has no insight on how the officer was feeling, what he was thinking, etc… in a dangerous and traumatic situation. Therefore, Noble describes the trouble involved in holding officers liable for an event in which the accuser has never personally experienced. The author concludes by putting less emphasis on blaming police officers and more on the need for departments to implement more realistic training exercises, that will more effectively prepare officers for situations that demand tactical
This officer, Tiphanie Johnson, requests consideration for promotion to be rank of Corporal. As acting Corporal, my responsibilities have involve a number of important actions but specifically regarding a 'Use of Force' is what I will give some insight on. A 'Use of Force' adds up to be four different options which are advice, persuasion, warning and physical force.
It is important for commander of each level to be able to precisely describe visualization of accomplishments and end state to be achieved during combat actions. It is especially efficient to Joint Force Commanders to define clear purpose of phases, understanding of facts and risks to be taken to consideration and later on to find the ways how to avoid or mitigate the risks. These all is commander’s consideration so called commander’s intent. Commander’s intent is part of operational order and is included in execution section. Commander’s intent can be released verbally or in written format. Mostly in the joint level commander’s intent is disseminated in written format and therefore it should be clear enough to provide easily understandable
I think people with CPL (Concealed Pistol License) licenses should not be able to carry a firearm in public schools or any schools in that matter, because teachers that are under stress might shoot a student. In addition, guns show signs of intimidation towards students and other teachers. Lastly, using guns is a way for people to solve their school problems, which should not be the case.
Imagine an object so influential it could change the weapons of warfare, revolutionize battle tactics, and transform the ways of hunting. Anyone from soldiers to blacksmiths, to nobles, could have used it. It allowed the massacre of armies from a distance, warranted gun usage, and the idea traveled across the globe. It has evolved and changed in significant ways over time. One may imagine an object that speaks with great power, but in reality, it has a quite simple appearance. The bullet mould.
This is an important concept because it explains that officers should not follow society and pressure from the public and media but follow the laws that our country. This a good thing to have when dealing with persuasive criminals and individuals. Both officers and civilians benefit from this principle because it protects both parties. Officers also need to know the laws, so they can stay away form trouble and not be deceived by public persuasion. This is a good thing to have in America today, because many criminals will say anything to get out of punishment. Also, it good for civilians know the laws of the land as well, in case an officer goes against them, so the individual can protect them self’s and educate if
1) Aristotle’s theory of Ethics is centered around a vision or purpose, guided by human values (Teological Ethics) and consists of 3 main parts; The Pursuit of happiness, Human Excellence, and The mean. For Aristotle, happiness isn’t momentary, happiness is a prolonged period in which a person does
You should clean your gun regularly if you want to make sure that it will work safely and correctly every time you use it. Guns that are poorly maintained may malfunction, which can mean certain death in some situations. It may explode in your hands or misfire, things that you never want to happen (especially during a gunfight). If you will take care of your firearm properly, you will be able to maintain its excellent condition and prolong its life.
Aristotle’s belief is that finding a “golden mean” is the key to becoming virtuous. This is finding a median between the two extremes. The two extremes are considered to be either a deficiency or excessive. One golden mean example is the act of bravery. If you demonstrate a deficiency of
