Viewers raved and rejoiced at the “accurate” and “beautiful” depiction of the life of a true American willing to risk everything for his country. Ask almost anyone in the south, they will tell you that “American Sniper” was inspirational. Yet, the “War on Terror” continues to be a hot debate topic. One of the points on tensions is how the majority of the country views the armed forces who fight and continue to fight in the name of American Interests.
No one likes to think of killing as a job, but our military is trained to kill in order to protect this nation. Kyle said in his book that he was not trying to make a name for himself. He said that killing people at long range was his military mission. Because he was so good at it, many lives were saved and Iraq is a safer place. His effort and valor throughout his deployments to Iraq were celebrated.
When people think of World War II they normally think about people fighting through forests or big bombs being dropped. Many people forget about the snipers that waited for hours and hours in freezing cold temperatures to get that perfect shot. They had to do all of their fighting alone. There was no one covering their back, if someone spotted them they were done for. Some snipers contributed huge amounts of kills like Simo Hayha, with 524 confirmed kills (Hiskey).
Defending that the first solider only started shooting upon the crowd because it 's a normal response for anyone who 's facing a life or death situation. The jury acquitted six soldiers while two other soldiers was charged with Manslaughter. Many reacted to Adams defense for the soldiers hostile and his law practice suffered greatly. But later his actions built him a reputation by others who taught he was courageous, generous,
Another reason I would be him is because he is a sharpshooter, my favorite thing to be in the military. He is also in the Vietnam war, which in my opinion is the most interesting. Another skill that I want, is to stay completely still for long periods of time.
Him fixing his wound was a step to resolving the conflict because if you have an untreated wound it is harder to fight. The sniper shooting the turret person and the informant was a major step to resolving the conflict fore it eliminated the extra threat of them. The biggest step to resolving was when he faked his death allowing for the opening to shoot the opposite sniper with a pistol. Throughout the story the only know other characters are trying to kill him or hinder his progress in killing the other sniper . The other characters are the informant, the turret guy, the opposite sniper, the driver of the armored car, and whoever was shooting the machine gun at
I picture myself in the battle called the antietam battle and we was facing the gettysburg i figure that it was going to be a great and tough one but we the antietam out number them we played smart, we dropped them one by one silently headshots , they didn’t know why there man was leaving so quickly they stopped and said wait a minute why our group is getting small ? One of the leaders said. I was a sniper man taking them out the good thing is they didn’t hear any gunshots all they saw was there man lying on the ground with blood on their skin one of their men was down the war lasted for a couple of weeks this is why the war didn’t last long like the other war did. 1(we had more men than they did) 2.
But I was not worried. This was “lazy Joe”, of all people; he would be the last person in this prison who had the guts to actually pull the trigger. I actually love the guy for it, but it would result in this being his death scene. I finally was standing face to face with Joe. All I could hear was Gwen screaming at me to attack already
During war, as seen in We Were Soldiers a soldier can see some very disturbing things. It is these things, such as seeing a close friend get shot, killed or blown up that can cause severe mental trauma. The way the American soldiers always took care of their own, while heroic, was costly. The American motto is “No man left behind”, this means that no matter what shape the soldier is in, his body will not be left where he died. Seeing someone get shot, and then trying to recover him while being shot at, or holding the injured soldier as he’s bleeding to death, will cause the memories to be ingrained in a soldier 's mind for the rest of his life.
Firearm stoppage is one of the biggest problems I see in the military along with operator error. It can throw you off when you are shooting than all the sudden something went wrong and now you have to fix the jam. Sam is the acronym that the man in the video uses that for troubleshooting what happened that created stoppage. The S in SAM stands for the shooter, or what I like to call operator error.

While both Alvin York and Chris Kyle display traits specific to romance, it is important to clarify the definition of the genre. Romance, as discussed in the PowerPoint, is defined by being relatively unrealistic, not adhering to the portrayal of daily life, as well as not confining to the rules of realism. This type of romance has nothing to do with a love story, contradictory to what society believes. In both films, however, the main characters do find love interests. The characters of a romance also feature abilities that normal, everyday people would not possess.
“Gentleman, Your Verdict”: A Moral Dilemma 1. In my opinion, I don’t think the jury should convict Commander Oram of murder because he wanted at least some people to survive and to do that, many men had to die. The fact that he commits suicide makes a difference because if he hadn’t it would have made it look like he killed 15 other men so that he could survive. If he hadn’t commit suicide, I would definitely change my answer to ‘yes, he is guilty’. I don’t think that the other crew members are guilty because they didn’t have a say in what was done.
The D-Day Describe the scene as you approach Omaha beach for the D-day landing. I remember the day, you can call it the D-day but for me, it was 6 June 1944. At the end of that day, there were 425,000 people who died a horrible death. It all started when all the soldiers were standing in the crowded ship, there were 7,000 ships altogether and all of them were all drizzly and it was very hard to stand on the floor because it was slippery also the waves hitting the ships were making people drop to the floor and on their knees.
