If you click on a soldier, you could then click on their family to hear their stories. I think its crucial that we remember peoples’ stories because I believe in the quote, “Those who do not learn history are doomed to repeat it”. I think things written from the actual family and friends of soldiers would evoke even more of the reality and sympathy from readers. People could see how war reaches people in a ripple effect. Lastly, the veterans who are alive should be helped too.
Tim Mak is a Senior Congressional Correspondent for The Daily Beast news website and a former writer at The Washington Examiner. The article raises the question, “Is the Wounded Warrior Project really helping these veterans the way they say they are?” Mak interviews many soldiers, both active and retired, about how they have been treated by the WWP and what they think about them. One veterans advocate tells Mak, “It’s more about the Wounded Warrior Project and less about the wounded warrior,” when asked about how he views the organization. There is also a list of discrepancies in the article, information given from the company itself weighed against the facts. The WWP reports that they spend 73% of their budget on programs for veterans but after investigation by outside sources, the truth came out to be only 58% of the budget spent for veteran programs.
A friend of Louie’s, Payton Jordan explained “It was like he got hit real and he was trying to shake it off” But at one point the mental unstableness the war had caused him shot to an all time high when Louis decided that he was going to kill The Bird. Louie thought that only The Bird could restore him from taking his dignity by watching himself kill The Bird. The use of dignity in Louie’s story shows the impact all POW’s faced while
A primary question has been whether or not the attack was premeditated (i.e., planned in advance). Defense lawyers argued that the attack was not premeditated but was, rather, the result of the soldiers reacting to the stress that comes with the conditions of warfare. The area near Baghdad where the soldiers were stationed is known as the “Triangle of Death” because of all the extreme acts of insurgent violence that occur there. It has been claimed that the soldiers were demoralized by numerous attacks against them and by the deaths of their companions. According to the testimonies heard at trial, “the constant fear of death and the trauma of several devastating incidents took a heavy toll on morale” (Mosher, 2006, p. A13).
This instance in the short story depicts Krebs feeling like he has a down to earth conversation with another soldier who can truly relate to the struggles he has endured from being involved in the war. He does not have to exaggerate for someone to be interested in him, and he can truly talk about how frightened he was when at war. Most people who ask about the war want to hear a heroic account of memory from the war, and aren't expecting or particularly interested to hear how scared a soldier was when he was overseas. Krebs finds some sort of relaxation through talking to this other soldier but it also makes him realize that he is no longer the same person he was before the
In a hollow smug hallway, Harper’s life changed in those two horrific minutes. She used all her force and power to escape, but he had a stronger grip. She yells, “STO…” but doesn’t get the chance to complete the word with her body in shock and pain till she passes out. She tried to comprehend what happened and why he attacked her, till the nurse comes back after getting the whole story to tell her she should keep this attack quiet. Harper was an enlisted member in the military and is one in a million of service members who get sexually assaulted and harassed in the military.
Going through hard times can make people appreciate life more because they cherish the good moments they have. During the Civil War, our nation was divided. An abundance of men, from the north and south, were leaving their families behind to fight. Wives being left alone to support the family. People receiving news daily that their loved ones would not be returning home.
Some armed forces members will not conform to these principles and will get out willingly or forcefully. Those service members that heed their training and have the mental flexibility will help build the military services of the future. Transgender individuals are already serving in the ranks of the armed forces. Getting rid of the recognized obstacles that inhibit transgender personnel from operating as their identified gender, presents them with the identical chance their fellow service members have, will solve the health care offered for their mental and physical needs, and will give our leaders the opportunity to overcome the leadership and logistical difficulties for transgender incorporation into our
Gun Control In the world today gun violence has skyrocketed. From tragic massacres like the one in Sandy Hook, and the shooting at the movie theater in Colorado to gun violence used my many cops in the shooting deaths of many unarmed men. Many innocent people are dying because of the obliviousness that America has to this issue. There needs to be stronger gun control throughout the United States, because the U.S. has weak gun laws, the background checks are ineffective, and too many mentally ill people are getting a hold of guns. America has weak gun laws and needs to follow in the footsteps of other countries by making harsher gun laws.
Why are this things happends days pass by we can’t trust everyone even the polce that we should trust for even them we don’t know if they are telling the truth and it’s like killing is becoming legal in our country already. Many people dies when they already started the “O Plan Tokhang” as one of the ways to lessen the people who uses drugs and the drug pushers one of the hundred who dies is Kian DeLosantos, he is also a teenager like us but in a young age his life was gone in his young age he dies in a brutal way and guess who are the people involve in his murder case no other than our police. They found Kian dead holding a gun and drugs with him but as the investigation continue there is a big possibility that he is innocent, and imagine how can be a teenager hold a gun and fight and take note Kian is alone and the police is a team and come to think about it even if he is addict is that reason enough to take his life? Another example is the murder case of Marc Angelo Arnaez he is also a teenager they also says that he is involve in drug transactions but see
