One of the most challenging experiences I have faced came to me in my JROTC program. In my junior year of high school, I was promoted to the rank of cadet sergeant major and given more responsibilities than I have ever had. I was thrown into a situation that I was unprepared for and given no training on my position. I was given the task to start and maintain a marksmanship team, while supervising the program’s supply room. At first, I was completely over whelmed, and did not know how to perform my duties, because I could not be in two places at once.
The war is something no one wants to go through. Soldiers train to fight for their country and for their very lives. In doing so, the war isn’t a pretty place to be in. Many soldiers have returned with diseases, missing limbs, and mental trauma. After fighting the war, numerous soldiers return home injured or has contracted some type of health condition or disease.
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.
Expert Action Badge In today's time, Warrior Task and Battle Drills are vital to the everyday Army. With most of the Brigade Combat Teams and Combat Aviation Brigades lacking in skill level one, two, three, and four tasks, the Army is and will be implanting the Expert Action Badge. In this paper, it will go over what is required of achieving the Expert Action Badge, criteria for training requirements, who wanted to implement the Expert Action Badge, and why they thought it would be
This would cause a little rebellion that most generals would not stand for. The military generals were very strict about who got the right to use a certain type of weapon, but then again these men did volunteer for the job of serving their country in a war.Overall the soldiers were very responsible with their jobs and orders and they execute every one of them very
When I enlisted in the army, I never comprehended the atrocities I would come face to face with. The war is brutal and I cannot even keep track of how long I have been out here serving my country. Do I regret my decision? Most certainly not, but at times I do wonder what life would have been like if I had just never gone. I am about to write about the conditions I have faced and they are rather disturbing so be prepared.
The life of a soldier is something most civilians could not truly understand. To have to put your life completely in another man’s hands, whether it be you commander or squadmate, takes great discipline and courage. Every day a soldier is in active duty, he is depending on those around him to do their job: any slip up, and he could end up dead, wounded, or captured. Danger lurks around every corner, so a soldier must be on his toes; both to save his life and the lives of others. A soldier must learn to follow orders to the letter or else he risks endangering his comrades.
Veterans are dealing with a wide variety of issues at home and in the transition out of the military and a smooth transition to a well-paying job is important to settle back into civilian life. While the system is setup to give employment training and valuable assistants to get education and training, there is still a lack of true employment for Veterans. Receiving these benefits are plagued with issues, from late reimbursement to inconsistent training to take their skills learned from the military into the workforce. There is also a large portion of skills learned in the military that have a difficult time applying immediately into jobs, such as specific training on military only applications and machines. As more time passes from when a Veteran leaves the military the harder and harder it will be to even impress employers with those skills, so the shelf life of a good transition into the workforce can be quite short.
I was mentally hard on myself for every mistake and everything thing that I did because of my father, I never was good enough, never satisfied with anything I achieved. Because of my determination of wanting my father to be proud of me, in the military I received metals for sharp shooter and grenades, it’s pretty obvious who I thought about while I was training. Another great way to release frustration. My experience in the military change me in ways that would benefit me in my everyday life. I knew my father would be proud and he was until I got released from the military a couple of months after 911 took place.
War Veterans risked their lives fighting for our country, but after the war, they struggle to adjust back to normal life. Many soldiers go through hell on Earth fighting for our country, and witness unimaginable scenes and acts of inhumanity that scar them for life. Nevertheless, when they get back from the war, they still struggle with society along with being unable to cope with their war experiences. They become extremely paranoid and strictly follow the rules and tactics they learned in the military. Most of the time they are unable to adjust back to an ordinary lifestyle.
The training prepared us for the different dynamics of the fight we were about to face, and learned a new ROE for the enemy based off the information that we were receiving from 1-91 CAV the unit that we were going to relive in-place. Only about sixty percent of the guys in the unit had been deployed before but none of us had ever been deployed to
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.
When they heard they had to speak Navajo they were nervous some had forgot their language over time. Some words are unused in the original Navajo language so many new words were created from pairing old words together. Boot camp was long for these special soldiers they had to go through a school as well as physical training to become the marines that they were.The average class time learning this new code was eight weeks, not including boot camp. This code was taught at an American base called Camp Elliot which was mostly dedicated to the secretive Code
A Profession of Arms is an experience a person can’t truly understand if they never served in any type of militarize organization. Those who served must understand the culture, the history and they always have a reason why they volunteered. They must follow a certain code of conduct and discipline which often make them look or behave differently among others. I joined the Army for the transformation and to do something different comparing the friends that I grew up with. When I graduated from Basic and AIT my friends noticed the changes that occurred in my life when I returned home.
She discusses how to create power statements on your resume to get a response from recruiters, how to present yourself to people while networking when it comes to professional dress, what you should do during each stage of the interview process, and how you should evaluate your career options while incorporating your personal values. “In life, we get many chances to reinvent ourselves. Levit could not have phrased that in a better way. Something that many people struggle with, including myself, is their professional persona. When we meet people in a new place and begin to connect with them, sometimes we forget about the persona that we want to portray.
