The Struggles in Harsh Environments Hook. After just two months after the Narvaez expedition, the treasurer of the Narvaez expedition, Cabeza de Vaca, landed on Galveston Island along with 250 other castaways. Their dreams of colonization and riches had morphed into a quest for survival. However, the real question is: How did Cabeza de Vaca survive? Cabeza de Vaca survived because of his wilderness skills, his success as a healer and his respect for the Native Americans.
I want to thank the support system that encourages me to keep writing, proofreads my draft manuscripts, and supports my book signings. Because Carl Reiner wrote the forward for the first book, I did not get to acknowledge all those who helped me with the publishing of Adolf Meistermann: The Devil’s Legacy. Sheryl Haag and Carolyn Hallin proofread the pre-print manuscript and gave me valuable feedback. For both books, Judy Roberts and Hilda Roberts, neighbors and friends, corrected grammar and typos and gave constructive suggestions.
I have been stationed at both Fort Campbell, Tennesee and Fort Benning Gerorgia. As an NCO, I was held accountable for ensuring that there were adequate training aids to train soldiers so that the unit can maintain proficiency in certain areas. While many soldiers have creative ways of coming up with training aids, there are available resources at many Army instillations that provide suitable tools to assist in your training. Many soldiers are unaware of these resources, which was evident in my journey to find these assets. Observation: The Training Support Center (TSC) is a great place that provides training aids to support units in all their training activities; however, they are not well know across Army instillations.
Warrant officers are the leaders of their field and experts in their trade. As such, they must be reliable, technically and tactically proficient, quick learners, and self-motivated, traits I already possess. I believe I have the necessary skills, experience, and leadership abilities to be a great asset to the Army as a Warrant Officer. I have more experience and training than most of my peers considering warrant officer as their next step. I have proven to be a dependable, capable, driven and a proactive non-commissioned officer throughout my career and have always sought out positions of higher responsibility.
In this research and discussions with Officers I realized how narrow my views had been, and I learned how vital and closely connected all the branches are. It was in this moment of clarity, I understood, I can commit myself completely to any branch of the Army as an Officer and truly love my job. I still have my preference and know the Physical Therapist program would be my first choice, but I would strive to be the best Officer for my Soldiers in any position which I am assigned. In short, I want to be an Army Officer because of the amazing impact they have on Soldiers lives. No matter the branch, the level of professionalism and formal education placed upon Army Officers makes them the best men and women in the world.
Once you put on that Adjutant General shield, you are immediately depended on. This dependence spans outside of just the Soldiers that you see and associate with on a regular basis. Soldiers rely on us, to not only make sure their records are updated accurately and on time, spouses look to us to make sure that pay is submitted correctly and timely, children look forward to the events we help coordinate, parents look to us to make sure we are giving their Soldiers the best information about the benefits they enlisted for. One thing that has always been taught to me is that, we have three tasks that will make or break us: efficiency, effectiveness, and meeting the needs of Soldiers. If we cannot submit documents in a timely matter, we have failed.
Senior thesis also helped with my ability to look into deeper themes in American history. For example, my senior thesis argued that the 1793 yellow fever epidemic in Philadelphia was a reflection of how independent America stuck to the traditions of Europe. For the argument, I researched how the medical procedures performed by American doctors were based on those done in Europe. Without the research done for thesis, I would not
I planned my topic before I was assigned to do a research paper. I know at the beginning of my senior year I would need a good topic that I was interested in and I could argue about. It took me a while to figure out a topic that dealt with diesels, but I knew that no matter what the topic was I definitely wanted it to be about diesels. After deciding on my topic for conducting the argumentative research paper I used the resources available on Discus, online, and in the library to help me complete an annotated bibliography. The annotated bibliography was a big part of the research paper, using the reliable sources I learned new and interesting facts/quotes that I added to my paper.
Ladies didn 't generally have the privilege to vote since women were viewed as lower than men. They weren 't permitted to vote since they were closed as uninformed.

Subsequent to having a supporter for voting rights on their side like Abigail Adams.
The Native Americans got what the men didn’t want. Women, no matter what color, didn’t get rights either. They couldn’t vote or at one point even read. One of the reason why all these different varieties of people didn’t have freedom was because they had
A MIDWIFE’S TALE, A HISTORY OF JONATHAN ALDER, and VOICES FROM SLAVERY all give insight into the past. Specifically the past of different groups of people, these include, Native Americans, African Americans, women, rich, middle class, and working white men.

After analyzing what each book says about these groups the conclusion of which book is most trustworthy will be made.
Explanations of the American Revolution are extracted from the real life accounts of individuals who were directly involved in the activities that took place during this period. One of the Key authors focused in the essay is Mary Jemison, a white woman married into the American Indian tribe of Seneca. She lived the better part of her life alongside the Seneca community and endured a multitude of experiences that enabled her to write about her compelling account of the American Revolution from the year 1775-1779. Indian tribes lived in harmony along the whites, who were the Colonialists and the Americans. During the time of writing of the accounts, most of the States were under colonial rule, but the grip that the colonialists had on the people was sleeping away as rebel groups formed to fight off the oppressive reign of the colonialists.

They all portrayed influential and entertaining messages, giving a perspective into life in 20th century America.
Indians have always had their things taken from them by whites. However, the U.S. Government may have gone too far on this one. After being taken from their original lands and put on small reservations, some Indians have been wanting all whites to suffer. These people of the Sioux tribe were called Ghost Dancers. They believed if they did a certain dance, their gods would destroy the U.S. and similar establishments.
All discrimination, racism, and stereotyping against the Native Americans, was bound to happen the day Columbus landed in the Caribbean; after that it just went downhill. The English and French colonists joined the Spanish, and their colonization of the north-west was what led to the plight of the native population. Then the treaties started rolling over the native peoples, which at first seemed like good agreements, but then the treaties began to be violated. Some of the worst violations were made against the Cherokee Nation.
