Our American veterans epitomize the great values of what the United States of America was founded upon hundreds of years ago by our founding fathers, our democracy, the principles of freedom, liberty, and courage. Veterans Day is often overlooked by many as just a day off of school but it means much more than that. Veterans Day honors our pride for our veterans and remembers those men and women with respect.
The American flag is revered in the armed forces. Soldiers going into harm’s way that have worn, and continue to wear, the American flag on their uniforms. This shows that the soldiers have respect and they are proud to be an American citizen. Being in the service and fighting for what one believes in is amazing. They sacrifice their lives everyday for us, in order to protect and keep our nation safe.
A veteran is a person who has served our country but has now retired. They have fought to keep our country safe, risked their lives for us, and have died for us. They have honored our country, so why not honor them to. I honor veterans by saying the pledge of Allegiance every morning, giving donations, remembering veterans day, saying thank you whenever I see a veteran and by listening to their story’s when I talk to them. I think honoring veterans is so important because they have done so much for us.
On November 11 of every year, we have a day to celebrate our veterans. For many people, it is a day to honor our veterans in addition to thank them for what they done for our country. For me, it feels much more than just honoring them. There are three reasons why Veterans Day means more to me; my Grandpa, family history, and my birthday. My Grandpa inspired me to think more about veterans on Veterans Day because of what he has been through and what he did for the family.
I loved that it made me reevaluate my life and how I am living it. What I also really liked about this speech was that It gave me a scene of respect for all those who have ever fought for our great country. I love America and am grateful for all that I have. I have always been grateful for what soldiers do, but now I realize how harsh war is. How scared and tired they must be.
MacArthur was a very brave and commanding general. His Thayer award speech acceptance passed the torch to the next generation of leaders. Throughout his speech, he uses logos to show what it means to be a military leader. He goes on to say how he will always feel “a sense of pride… which will be with me always: Duty, Honor, Country.” He uses this statement as a logo and achievement for these cadets to look up to. The three words “Duty, Honor, Country” also show logos because they are what every man or woman stands for in the military.
The Desert Storm memorial should be built so we can honor those who fought and died in this war. My main goal for this memorial is for the family to feel like they are with their lost one. I want them to be able to come in and mourn, but also feel happy that their lost one is getting the fame they deserve. We will hold a ceremony every year and share things about the soldier 's life. That is so the families can come in and hear about their lost one.
Paul is a kind-hearted 19-year-old soldier, but his time in the war forces him to disconnect from his feelings as acknowledging them would release too much pain. Like Ged, Paul coped with Kemmerich’s death, along with the death of anyone who was important to him, by accepting it and moving on. When Paul is telling Kemmerich’s mother about her son’s death, he thinks, “Why doesn’t she stop worrying? Kemmerich will stay dead whether she knows about it or not.” (Remarque, 181) Paul cared about Kemmerich, but he has accepted his death and has already stopped worrying about it. Like Ged’s parents, Kemmerich’s mom coped with her son’s death by being told that they died bravely and did not suffer.
To the Army respect is trusting that all people have done their jobs and completed their duty. When soldiers are serving our country they do it without thought of recognition or gain. Honor in the Army is living up to the Army values. Integrity is when you're doing what's right legally or morally. Creating personal change requires, standing up and acting upon things we know are honorable daily.
This is a well-known researcher and journalist for magazine National Geographic, with a team of scientists he was studying the secrets of longevity around the world. Today people are more happier if they live with positive thoughts “Gratitude always comes into play; research shows that people are happier if they are grateful for the positive things in their lives, rather than worrying about what might be missing.” They questioned the way of long-lived people and concluded that in all four areas on several continents these centenarians were tightly connected with their families and rooted in their communities. These are people who do not bother about absurdity, they all know very well why they get up every morning and for what they are living for. They feel that they are needed in the family and in the community where they live. They feel an obligation to contribute to the community and really try to participate.
He summed up that it did and he expects to have his phone on him the entire time this summer in Arizona. All in all, I am thankful for this chance to get to talk to Jackson about his military experience. Although he is my brother-in-law, we have never truly talked about his military experience. I have a very special respect for Jackson and am proud of all of his accomplishments. It takes a special person to do what the men and women of our armed forces do and I am honored to say Jackson is a part of my
Governor Greg Abbott said, "I have declared February 2nd to be Chris Kyle day, we honor our heroes"(Texas Sets Aside Chris Kyle Day). Chris Kyle day was made to honor Kyle and his accomplishments. Kyle left behind inspiration for many. Kyle inspired others to join the military. Kyle always had a true passion for helping others.
I have driven by the Makawao Veterans Cemetery but have never stop and paid my respects. I respect those like your friend’s grandfather and your own grandfather for serving their country in order for us to have our own freedom. I thought it was so sweet that your friend’s grandmother shared stories about the love she had for her husband. There is something I like about how the military cemeteries are mad and organize. They are so put together and nicely maintained and with the American flags these cemeteries just command respect.
One way we honor his promise is to always say, “Thank you” to all veterans we meet. Another way we keep his promise is by celebrating Veterans Day. We also have hospitals for veterans. Those are just some of the ways we keep his promise. Honoring veterans is very important.
The first display of pride and respect for the Anzac’s sacrifice and bravery can be seen in Ellis Ashmead Bartlett’s newspapers report on the landing at Gallipoli, particularly in the line ‘the courage displayed by the wounded Australians will never be forgotten’, demonstrating how proud Australians were to hear that their soldiers had shown such courage on the battlefield, protecting the lives and countries of those they were defending. This respect and pride led to many memorials across Australia, along with the celebration each year on April 25th that still last today and hold a great deal of importance to
