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.
As a total force, there is a need for all Army and Army Civilians to be trained and educated at all levels regardless of position. This ensures that the total force will be able to keep up with the forever changes that the Nation faces every day. Soldiers and Army Civilians will remain technically and tactically proficient to be able to work as the total force, which is how the Army completes the mission. With competence, it is true that having the ability to become a subject matter expert with everything you say and do, will ensure that the total force will always have support from the American people. TC 7-22.7 NCO Guide (2015) states that all Soldiers and leaders must master the fundamental warrior skills supporting tactical and technical competence to execute full-spectrum operations among diverse cultures, with joint, interagency, intergovernmental, and multinational partners, at the level appropriate for each cohort and echelon.
By specifically choosing to identify this woman as his “first victim”, he makes himself out to be a villain at first glance. He takes on the perspective of something much more dangerous than the simple street-walking insomniac he actually was. If he had introduced this paragraph using different or more mild word choice, it would lose its initial threatening impression and fail to hold any proper significance to his claim. The first impression of the essay disguises the truth; his appearance, character. No sooner than in the second paragraph do we get a glimpse of his personality in actuality: “[I’m] a softy who is scarcely able to take a knife to a raw chicken-let alone hold it to a person’s throat” (Staples 542).
This was a very good strategy to lure the other sniper out of hiding, allowing him to kill the opposing sniper. This is similar to what happened in the movie Batman Begins, when the joker pretends to be dead when he is brought into the room so the man that wants him dead lowers his guard. He was not expecting anything bad to happen at that moment allowing the joker to kill him. If he would have taken a better approach and used a better strategy he would likely have been more precocious which would have allowed him to live. Similar to how the opposing sniper did not expect anything bad to happen to him because he thought he killed the main character, which ended up leading to his death.
People are only able to find success when they adhere to their values. This is shown in The Odyssey when Odysseus uses his value for cleverness to escape Polyphemus. When Polyphemus asks what Odysseus’ name is he tells him it is Nobody. Later, when Odysseus and his crew attack the Polyphemus he shouts so loud that other Cyclops come over and ask what or who is ailing him. Polyphemus responds, “Nobody’s killing me now by fraud and not force” (5.455).
Over time, Veterans learned that they were rewarded if they obeyed the rules and worked hard. Consequently, Veterans today value loyalty, respect authority, and expect rewards for hard work (Hatfield, 2002). As they near retirement, they fully anticipate reaping the rewards of their loyalty, longevity, and contributions in
Hugh Thompson was one of the biggest hero in the My Lai massacre when he tried to stop the massacre. For instance, when they arrived at the village of My Lai. Thompson saw how the people were running and trying to hide from soldiers. Suddenly, Thompson realized what they were doing was wrong of shooting children, women, and old people who posed no threat. As a result, Thomson decided to challenge the orders of his superiors and start doing what he thought was right.
Odierno was quoted in Army Doctrine Reference Publication (ADRP) 1-0 as saying “[We will] foster continued commitment to the Army Profession, a noble and selfless calling founded on the bedrock of trust.”2 As the Chief of Staff of the Army, General Odierno calls to focus the foundation of trust that is a necessary priority in the career model of professional Soldiers. Trust is found within the ranks of the Army as an earned credit to individuals who have proven to live the Army values through their actions and give sound guidance fostered by experience. Trust is gained with the public through positive actions and a consistent record of accomplishment. ADRP 1-0 states that “The Army cannot simply declare itself to be a profession; the American people, not the Army, determine when the U.S. Army is serving them as a military profession.”3 With enduring trust in Soldier’s capabilities, the Army will continue to be seen as a profession and build upon what it means to be a professional
As I work my way up through the ranks taking on new responsibilities, I will be prepared for the basic needs of an officer. With an officer job, I could respond to more serious and upgraded duties to work successfully and effectively as a team captain. I also feel it is my obligation as an American citizen to pay homage to our veterans and country. It is important to keep the legacy of America alive, and as an officer I can see myself on the forefront. After seeing the multitude of honor veterans receive, my donation to them would be to continue their labor of freedom in the Navy.
George killing Lennie is justified. Lennie was either gonna get killed by the other men or George. The other men were only doing it because they hated Lennie, George would have done it for the sake of Lennie’s safety and mental state. George would have felt guilty if he did not handle it himself. One reason George was justified in killing Lennie was that George had realized Lennie would never get better and their dream would never come true.
