The father and son may be getting older and spending less time together, but their love as father and son fortifies their relationship and prevents it from completely changing, which is exemplified when the father allows his son to use his rod to go fishing. The father’s rod is said to be “the only extravagance his father had had in his whole life” (45-46), meaning that the rod is of great significance to the father. Almost a whole paragraph is about how important the rod is to the father, and that’s not a detail included for decoration in Trumbo’s writing. Knowing that the father values his rod and invests time and money in it to

Salva gets water and does housework for the old woman he considers family. In the text it states “He worked hard so she would not send him away.” (18) Salva worked hard, to have a place to stay during the fighting.

As the play progresses, how does Sherriff encourage us to feel about Stanhope at different points? Sherriff presents Stanhope in more than one way for us to empathize with Stanhope, and look at him from various different viewpoints. In the beginning of Act 1, Sheriff gives contrasting opinions about Stanhope before we meet him. We can see this when Osborne defends Stanhope in front of Hardy, as he says “He’s a long way the best commander we’ve got.” The word “best” has connotations of a man of broad experience and outstanding figure. We can infer that Osborne is respecting Stanhope, even though he is much younger than him.

To ensure certification gains are permanent, an effective incentive program must be instituted that ensures a career as a Surfman exists. Currently, the advancement path for a Surfman is blended with other Boatswain’s Mates (BM). The BM advancement path routinely pulls Surfmen away from the surf to pursue career milestones. At the end of this assignment season, EPM reports that nine Surfmen jobs out of 125 will not be filled. Opponents might argue that there is already an effective incentive by giving all Surfmen who complete back to back tours in the surf assignment priority “3”; however, all Surfmen are required to complete back to back tours anyway.
