The best change that occurred was I became more respectful; It became evident to me to respect those that deserved and insisted on it. Before I joined the Army, I was a back-talking, disrespectful and ungrateful kid. However, once I went into training I was force to show respect to my superiors. If I displayed rude or disrespectful behavior I was punished. Before the Army, I thought my parents were jerks.
“Really, I think he was just plain crazy,” I do agree with Callarman because I think Chris was a little crazy for doing these actions. He was a very courageous for doing this because not many people would take a random trip to the wilderness because people would rather be in
Being a member of this team has given me more confidence than I ever thought a shy girl could attain. In addition to gaining confidence, I have learned to be humble. I train my mind and my body both on and off the field during the season as well as during the off season, but I still cannot take all the credit for what I accomplish in this sport. I have been blessed with a driven and quick-learning mind, a healthy immune system, and the body of an athlete. I also give credit to my coaches and to my teammates because I could never be where I am today if it were not for their inspiration and motivation.
At the beginning, he implicitly puts her request down. Near the end, however, he blames the helplessness created by the request as the reason for the denial. He first tells her that she does not fully comprehend the impact of her request. She “should have considered what she was asking.” By doing this, he establishes his position clearly, one that meant her son would not get patronage because of the impossibility of the task.
Sun-jo never complained about this and they talked and bonded the whole way to base camp. This was important in their relationship because they really got to know each other and become better friends. While Peak and Sun-jo were heading towards the summit and were almost there Peak made the executive decision to not summit and let
Callarman’s argument is that Chris McCandless made a lot of mistakes because he was arrogant and that he had no business going into Alaska with his Romantic silliness and he says that he was just crazy. I disagree with Callarman’s argument because I think that Chris McCandless (Alexander Supertramp) was not arrogant I think that he just wanted to learn new things. I also disagree because I think that Chris did have a reason to go to Alaska or else he would not have done it even if it just to go because he likes nature, and I don’t think that he was crazy at the beginning but I agree that he did start to get crazy when he was stuck in the wild on the bus. I don’t think that Chris is arrogant I think that he is just a guy who wants to learn new things about nature and just the world in general.
During the inappropriate operation, the pilot stated, “I hate droning around at night, when I don’t know where I am” (Bogaert, 2013). His statement made it is clear that the he failed to correct a known problem. The PIC knew that the flight was at risk, and instead of rerouting, he remained on
After completing several weeks of demanding physical training, 1st Lt. Shaye Haver and Capt. Kristen Griest became the first females to ever graduate from the elite US Army’s Ranger School. Maj. Gen. Scott Miller, who spoke at the graduation ceremony, assured skeptics who challenged whether the women’s standards were lowered that Haver and Griest met all the standards that the men did. A few men were initially skeptical of Haver and Griest, along with the other 17 women who started out in the class, but once the females proved their extraordinary mental and physical might, gender was soon disregarded.
I will accomplish this by sharing with Marines the importance of practicing drill, holding small unit leaders accountable, and provide monthly drill competitions within the unit. One of the first questions I hear from Marines when they are told to go practice drill is “why?” and the answer they get is usually along the lines of “we have a ceremony coming up” or “we have an inspection coming up” and those types of answers leave Marines with the wrong impression on drill and why it is actually important to practice. Marines rarely go out on their own and practice drill or take the time to teach their junior Marines

"The best way to find yourself, is to lose yourself in the service of others. " This is quoted from Mahatma Gandhi, and is fitting when talking about my experiences in the JROTC service programs I have involved myself in so far this current school year. Not only have I been able to provide a service for Central High School, athletic games, and Veteran's Day programs for children, I have been able to gain more respect from my peers, superiors, and myself. My services for JROTC have all ranged in description, but all fall under color guard events I have volunteered myself part in. These services have included taking part in a team that worked on several color guard events for volleyball games, a competition team where we represented Central High
The effectiveness of Diversity and Cultural Competence. Western culture is usually referred to when talking about the culture of the United States. Our culture began its development with the first English settlers in the early 1600’s and continued to evolve from influences from Native Americans and the arrival of immigrants from Asia, Africa, and Latin America. This created a melting pot of cultures which has turned into one of the most influential forces on Earth. Today, with a population exceeding 300 million people, the United States continues to be a place for immigrants, by immigrants, whether as a place of refuge or for those seeking the American dream.
As leaders, it is important to communicate our priorities and values so that every Soldier knows what is expected. Reading and absorbing this philosophy will give you a solid ground for what is expected from you and what you can expect from me. Rely on the Army values to help you make good decisions. In particular, remember the following values: • Integrity: Having integrity is, to me, one of the most important Army values. Having integrity means you do what is right even when no one else is around.
