If wounded, and they can 't be restored, how should they be compensated? If military service fails to provide veterans with the skills necessary to find work in the civilian sector, should the government take action? Reasonable people can disagree, and within that disagreement politics of the time rules. It is an extremely harsh irony to veterans waiting for service-connected disability compensation claims, treatment in understaffed VA facilities or struggling to find work, but this imperfect form of governance which is “our democracy”…..is precisely what they fought and risked their lives to
Us Americans should be helping our troops when they come home. We do not treat our veterans right. They fight for our country, but when they come home they are not treated right. The physical, mental and emotional fatigue that comes with serving in combat is immense and many soldiers see their
Thank you CTL for allowing me to continue my service to this great nation, community, and fellow individuals in crisis. Whether it is the war torn streets of Baghdad, or an individual suffering alone in the confines of their minds and phone screen, I am able to still reach out and make a difference. I know from first hand this experience is universal. It is the collective human consciousness and need of belonging that has allowed our civilization to flourish. As a veteran (Warrior) I am reminded of a great quote by author Steven Pressfield, “The return Warrior/Veteran may not realize it, but they have acquired an MBA in enduring adversity and a Ph.D. in resourcefulness, tenacity and the capacity for hard work.”
The TSA suffers from the very same issues that have plagued the Veterans Administration for years, the problem is government employees. Once someone becomes a government employee and they have served beyond the probation period, trying to remove them it is like treating terminal cancer; you can try to treat it, but it will not go away. Replace senior federal leadership with professionals that have not been part of the problem from the start. “Employees know they work for “the government” and know their employment is guaranteed for life; with a few rare exceptions. They also know that the people who they provide services to are not who they work for” (Satterfield, 2015).
(Henderson) Citizens of America are taking sides on the Battle flag controversy and that plays a major part in how the voters will choose their leaders in the upcoming elections. Not only are politicians trying to avoid taking a side on the controversy but business are also being pressured by the American citizens to take the away from their
complications like surgery medical test medical examinations training may have effects on war itself in my opinion I think the president was looking out for military benefits the president looks at it as transgender people holding the military down from creating progress and growing. the president did have many reasons for why what morally it 's wrong to deny people of the United States citizens themselves the right to 5 for the country the right to protect the one they love denying these people rights to enlist in the army is like taken away they 're taking away their dignity and responsibilities as
Martin Luther King Jr. is a well-known civil rights activist and he is also a minister. In 1967, King gave a speech at a meeting called “Clergy and Laymen concerned about Vietnam” (King). King starts of by telling his opinion about the Vietnam War. He believes that the war is an enemy of the poor, because America would never invest money into the poor as long as the war was still going on. He also believes that sending sons, fathers, and brothers into war is nonsense, because they knew that they would die in high proportions.
This shows that even the entire world hurling issues at Reagan would not faze him. He would calmly examine them and find the right solution. Thatcher's use of allusions and personification brings more description of Reagan's great character into her speech. Thatcher dedicates her speech to Reagan and paints him as a great man and one to be remembered throughout all time in her eulogy. She shows Reagan as an American THrough and through, driven to help improve lives with her
The growing dilemma of aging prisoners is a very important thing that needs to be fixed. Those prisoners have been in jail for a really long time for crimes that they committed a long time ago. They are old now and they already passed the age of offending and now they would not do anything bad. Not only is it sad and inhumane to keep them there for that long but it also cost a lot of money keeping them there.
This explains Marc because it really shows how he really enjoys being an American Soldier and that when with his brothers and sisters he will always take a stand and do what is right. Marc was a remarkable soldier and loved his fellow teammates. “Marc was an athletic guy, in some ways exactly the sort of tough physical specimen you expect to be a SEAL”(Kyle 216). This quote is coming from Chris who being a SEAL is explaining how this new guy is exactly what a SEAL should be. Marc was perfect according to Chris and never seemed to give up in anything
Another key fact is once the veteran has been discharged a counselor should be on standby to point them in the right direction of all available services and supports; especially for those experiencing lengthy transitions (Robertson, 2013). Thus, supporting that counselors need to be assigned before being discharged. Many veterans exit the military with complex needs as a result from serving in the military. Furthermore, their lives becoming even more complex as they cope with the process of transitioning to civilian life. This equally supports that a counselor is extremely necessary and should be automatically available to all discharged veterans.
The US has grappled with many questions about society’s obligations as to whether or not to offer services and benefits to the men and women in the armed forces. Supporters argue that helping veterans will help the society as whole and opponents argue that we shouldn’t be increasing our federal government spending in repaying veterans. Although I do see where people can argue that we are spending too much money on helping veterans after war, I believe that the government owes them for what they have done for the country, despite the cost. The government owes certain benefits to veterans because the men and women in the armed forces deserve to be welcomed home with a generous system of services for what they have done for the country. Helping veterans goes way back all the way to the 1600s.
A Veteran whether active duty, discharged, retired, or reserve is someone who, at one point in his or her life, wrote a blank check made payable to “The United States of America,” for an amount of “up to, and including his/her life.” I’m honored to be speaking with you today on such an important occasion. We’re here today to honor our service members and to remember their sacrifices they have made and the courage it take to defend honor, duty and the country. May we always be humbly grateful…. to the brave American patriots…who suffered and sacrificed for the freedom of all Americans.
New America Famous rapper Kanye West once said "I have ideas that can make our human race existence, with in our one-hundred years, better!" John Lewis and Andrew Aydin authors of the graphic novel March throughout the book have written many speeches. From John Lewis being a poor boy off the farm fields of Alabama and preaching the gospel to chickens to being chairmen of SNCC and giving a speech at the White House. The speech that stood out to me the most was the speech that John Lewis and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. had at the march of Washington and what lead them to believe that equality was going to be the new change for America. John Lewis grew up like every other colored boy did in Alabama.
