I felt really good recognizing the military families. It is not only the people who serve in the military, but their families also. Yes, it is their family member who goes through weeks and weeks or training, then fights for their country and what they believe in to protect their loved ones. The soldiers’ family also has to go without their family member and pray that everything will be okay, or that the soldiers will not get called into battle. When they wake up, they have no idea of what they will face, which is taking a risk, but those are things that the soldiers are willing to
They fight for our freedom and our rights and we repay them by becoming homeless. 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
.” (7). Papa is explaining to her why he is so worried about the land being taken away and why he works so hard. It is hard for him to be away from his family for so long, but he knows if he doesn’t, they would probably not be able to keep the land. Papa would love to be with his family, but knows he cannot. Cassie would rather Papa be home more often, but understands how important the land is to their family.
To illustrate this idea, the author compares the older soldiers to the young soldiers, when the narrator states, “They have wives, children, occupations and interests...We stood on the threshold of life. And so it would seem. We had as yet taken no root...[We] do not know what the end may be. We know only that in some strange and melancholy way we have become a wasteland” (Remarque 20). This excerpt can be interpreted to mean that the young soldiers are too young to have a real place like home, causing them to feel insignificant, but the older soldiers have a reason to live, for their “wives, children, occupations and interests.” The author uses the phrase, “taken no root,” to convey how the young soldiers have never been anywhere long enough to grow their “roots”, suggesting that they have no safe place, a place like home.
Currently our mission in Iraq under Operation Inherent Resolve is uncertain. Soldiers are not constantly engaged in the mission and live under temptations or threats to consistent moral behavior. For example, a Soldier away from the spouse every other year confront a dilemma and the living arrangements do not make it easier; engage in inappropriate relationship and commit adultery disrupting the moral behavior expected. In fact, all four times that I have deployed, a few married Soldiers have committed adultery. Most of them were held accountable for breaking the rules.
For many years, interracial couples was being looked down upon because the diversity within the relationship involving race and religion. For some families it is hard to accept interracial couples because it can cause several problems in a family including different religious beliefs and difference in race, but the past is in the past. Race and religion should not matter when it comes to choosing a significant other because diversity among races is more common in this era, and people are making an effort to accept interfaith relationships by supporting them. Race should not matter when choosing a significant other because diversity is becoming more common and people are embracing it. This can be seen in an article about interracial
With this in mind some people 's dreams differ, sometimes having the biggest house or highest paying job isn 't what one might want. Willy was able to acquire a nice home, but was seriously lacking in the family and job department. Willy did have a family but then constant complaining and fighting with his kids made it unbearable to live as a family. In regards to his family communication with biff and having open talks with his wife would insure a better living environment. Willy also tried hard to obtain a great job that had the ability to provide for his family, but after he became older it was harder and harder to keep his same skill and friendliness that it takes to be a
These themes are exemplified by the experiences of the narrator in “Ten Kliks South” and Tina Beller in her e-mail to her parents. The major takeaway from these two pieces is that soldiers undergo tough situations that are unknown to the average human being. Just like everyday humans face the trials and tribulations of life, soldiers too come face to face with situations that can leave an emotional scar. Therefore, it is important for us to show appreciation for soldiers, for all that they do, and for all that they will continue to do for
They come to to a ranch an’ work up a stake and then they go into town and blow their stake, and the first thing you know they’re pounding their tail on some other ranch.” (Steinbeck 13). When working hard for a goal, it’s really hard to not blow your stake because most of the ranchers had nothing else to look forward to in the future. Even though George and Lennie didn’t have anyone or anything in their life, they had each other, and the courage to still fight for their dreams which builds the most powerful strength anybody could
This also informs of the internal conflict of loved ones such as Krebs mother and even returnee soldiers themselves. The use of the theme of conformity by Hemmingway paints a picture of stark differences that bring out conflicts to the central character Krebs. Readers are also informed by the difficulty of adapting to conflicting social norms such as religion and marriage that most people fit into. Krebs truly knows that he has been traumatized by the war, and even the conformity of family and religion cannot seem to understand that the best way for him to conform is taking no responsibilities and consequences such as those of
Intervention strategies that would not work with the military community is a soldier coming back from deployment and not getting the help he/she need to cope with PTSD. A person who suffers from this syndrome without treatment may suffer from withdrawal, problems with employment or difficult being around other people especially in crowds. Hi, Darlene! When a soldier is deployed their children suffers the most in my opinion. Especially if the parent is an involved parent going games, school play and so much more.
Vet Courts Help Defendants Get Back on Track The United States has several military branches that they train to defend and protect our freedom and soil at all costs. These warriors are broken down mentally and physically to be prepared for the adversity that war brings. Although some would say these militants are some of the best in the world, nothing can prepare a soldier for the toll that war brings the soul. Many soldiers come back home from war with a list of physical, mental, and emotional conditions, some may not even be aware that they might be suffering from a condition, leaving them to go on day to day without proper treatment. In some cases, an afflicted veteran then turns to drugs, alcohol, or even violence because they do not
Mainly, the scenes were both Kay and Arnold are expressing their feelings but neither one of them is listening to one another. The depiction of Kay and Arnold represents a common issue between married couples in our time, and that is the lack of interpersonal communication. It became apparent that Kay and Arnold remained married for so many years with the purpose of raising their children together. It is also easy to suggest that throughout the years they both became focus on other areas of their lives that they neglected their needs and consequently, they grow apart. This area warrant further reflection because it is easy to neglect our husband/wife once we become comfortable within our marriage.
In the movie Saving Private Ryan, one of the soldiers recalls a big memory of his that was his mom waiting every night to talk to him after a long day of work. He recalls this memory because to him it was one of the most painful ones. As he said when telling the story to his friends with tears in his eyes ‘’ I don’t know why I did that’’. This must be a painful memory to him because now that something as simple as talking to his mother isn’t reachable, he had truly learned how valuable those conversations were and how much he underappreciated them. Even now, most soldiers who are deployed can’t really be with their families and struggle through the big burden of realizing times that they could have talked to their loved ones but chose not to.
I believe these symptoms would be managed once I am reunited with my family and focused on serving out my military obligation. A reassignment would benefit both the military and my family as I would be able to concentrate my energy towards the mission and not solely on my personal life and the hardships of my family. If I was able to be reassigned to Nellis AFB, I could more sufficiently tend to my family and could focus on being there for my wife, unborn child, and toddler son, as this is an issue I struggle with daily and finding it hard to focus on daily task. My wife is also requiring a cesarean for the birth of our child. Katherine will be unable to care for our toddler and our newborn after she gives birth and the extra added expenses of a newborn would also pose a threat with 2 households.
