Rogers wish to join the army but could not because of his health. Next is the hero’s call to adventure. The hero is usually given a message by a messenger or an external event. For Steve Rogers, the war was his call to adventure. Once America joined World War 2 and started recruiting volunteers to help out in the army, Steve and his friend, Bucky, decided that they should join the army.
The movie itself can also be deemed credible because it was partially based on a true story. It was based on the Niland brothers, four siblings who all served in the US Army during World War II. Three of the four brothers, Robert, Preston, and Edward, were supposedly killed in action, which caused their remaining brother, Fritz (whom the character Private Ryan was based on) to be shipped back to America so that the Niland family wouldn’t lose all of their sons. For the pathos in this trailer, one can just conclude that the whole trailer is involved in pathos because to establish emotion and connect to the audience or in this case the viewers of this trailer the pathos can be the music in the background, the sad expression the General has the video, and the things said in the letter all have the emotional appeal. With the sad background music according to the directors of this movie and trailer, the music can be used to express the feeling of how emotional and traumatizing the effect of after and before the war
Luis Valdez in the play “The Buck Private”, the death of young men and their innocence in the Vietnam War. Valdez supports his claims by illustrating Johnny the protagonist, he joined the army because he wanted the respect and honor it gives. Valdez wants to inform young people the dangers and horrors of the Vietnam war in order to save young people's lives. Valdez writes in an informal tone for young people so they can make the right choice for their lives other than joining the army. Johnny’s a tragic hero because he strives to be a good person and to help others in need; Johnny enlisted in the Vietnam war to “better” his life.
His views on nationalism, as shown by the statement "I survived, but it's not a happy ending. I was a coward. I went to the war"(The Things They Carried, 79), are not extremely prominent. This quote clearly shows that he did not feel strongly enough for his country to potentially die for it. He believes patriotism is almost non-existent which is expressed through the idea that his only motivation for joining the army is the opinions of others and the statement “they carried their reputations.
There are multiple military forces in which you have to pledge to confirm your loyalty to our country to even be involved. Military forces today such as: marines, army, coast guard, and air force have men that choose to fight for our country, risking their lives everyday. There should not be a mandatory military draft due to fact that military deployment should be by choice, not everyone is physically or mentally stable enough to handle the military setting, and if men are forced to be within the military they will not be as dedicated or fight is hard for our country, so the purpose would be defeated. First of all, military
People today have a more likely chance of preventing severe illnesses or bleeding out with the right materials, sadly we can’t go back in time to show our improvement in medicine today. In the story “The Killer Angels” by Michael Shaara, 3 people were injured or had a health issue and will be talked about here. John Buford was a brilliant commander, dedicated with lots of experience. He fought for the union army as a brigadier general. During the war, he was leading his men at Fort Lewis trying to gain more time so Pope could retreat.
They have been friends since their childhood and when Owen mistakenly kills John’s mother, their friendship actually grows stronger. During the Vietnam War draft, John begins to worry that he will be called to serve as his graduate student deferment will shortly expire. However, Owen does his research and discovers a potential soldier can escape combat if a portion of one his digits is missing. In an effort to save John from being forced to go, Owen uses a diamond knife from his father’s quarry to cut off a part of John’s finger. In the most obvious way, this displays Owen’s clear affection for John.
Particularly, the reason getting over his situation is one of the guys that was killed was his best friend. Also, Luttrell was the only one to survive so he had to relay what had happened during his time in Afghanistan, this being the attacks that were brought upon the SEAL team, and what had happened to the men: “I was the bearer of the terrible news” (4). The metaphor Luttrell uses here means more than just the bearer of bad news; bearer is also the flag holder and the casket-holder. If it wasn’t enough that Luttrell had to live with all that had happen, such and his friends being killed in front of him, now he had to deal with everyone asking him questions and bothering him about it only bringing back all the bad memories of that horrifying time in Luttrell’s
King Henry uses Aristotle’s three Appeals to assuage the fears of his soldiers and to inspire unyielding confidence and passion. Two nights before a great battle to retake France’s land, King Henry of England disguises himself as a common soldier to discover the sentiment of his army. However, outnumbered and afraid of dying, the men tells the disguised King Henry about their reluctance to head into battle. Consequently, the next day, King Henry decides to raise his army’s morale through a speech. King Henry begins by appealing to the men’s sense of logic, using logos to argue that no more men are needed for the battle: “If we are mark’d to die, we are enow / to do our country loss; and if to live, / the fewer men, the greater share of honour”
Making a Great Civil War General The age old question of what makes a great Civil War General is not an easy one to ask.. I don’t want to address the reasons why or the causes of the Civil War because depending on your geographical location they tend to lean in favor of our statehood and education in where you grew up from. In my opinion, Generals are not made in a class room environment. They are taught by experience in the battle fields where enlisted men are sent to defend and fight to the death. This leadership and trust in the General is earned only by blood from his troops.
