I will re-enlist facing these facts, the army is running low on soldiers, Americans should have freedom from Britain, and the army is receiving support from congress. The army needs men for many are not re-enlisting because they think they will die. Some are running away from camp. Others lay ill, dying slowly. This is an unselectable and a terrible fate.
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.
If Antinous was still alive the suiter’s would have not treated Odysseus like a king, they would’ve treated him poorly with Antinous. Altogether, treatment of Odysseus shows that after they come home people will treat the person differently than they did before and they will not have the honor or loyalty to that specific person. Many years later some veterans are not able to recover from the war and traumatic memories, even after treatment. In this article, four veterans share their story about what triggered their PTSD and what they do for treatment. Mercer, Wiry, Leban, and Graves all have something in common, they all suffer from the disease, PTSD and they all tried to seek some form of treatment.
In the article “Stop Feeling Sorry For American Veterans” by James Joyner, it mentions that veterans are extremely less likely to “fit in” with their peers in a college setting. It states that factors such as age and life experiences-and the “overbearing” stereotype that many veterans need special attention given their situation-make a college lifestyle more difficult than necessary. While this is true, it is also disregarding the veterans who did suffer physical/mental ailments. Who-as it currently stands-still do not obtain proper
2.1 Literature Review War trauma. Soldiers that are sent for missions are exposed to physical and psychological wounds, particularly to war trauma. (Boserelle,& Cupa, 2011). Land mines, exploding shells and direct bullet injury are just some causes of war–related amputations on foot and ankle among respondents in a study by Ebrahimzadeh & Rajabi in 2007. As more and more U.S. veterans come from Iraq and Afghanistan with a missing limb, much attention is given to a bewildering phenomenon that young soldiers feel an agonizing pain in a body part that no longer exists.
Thousands of people join our military and risk their lives to fight for their country. After many years of fighting in war, soldiers are no longer who they used to be. When they return home, they are looked down upon, treated badly, and aren’t given the treatment needed to recover. The struggles and obstacles these veterans face on their journey home and once they arrive forever face. In the epic poem, Odyssey by Homer, it shows the obstacles a soldier has to face on their journey.
And this can cause some permanent damage to that person. People in today's society were not giving these veterans coming home from the war the treatment they need and well-deserved. However, the treatment of these veterans has been getting worse as time goes on. These veterans come home expecting glory and end up being treated very poorly. A fictional epic tale is about a hero who goes through many tragic events this epic is titled the Odyssey.
There is an increasing amount of soldiers getting discharged. And if the soldier don’t get an honorable discharge the soldier don’t get all of his/hers benefits. He would, how ever, have got some benefits of being a veteran. Because there are more soldiers getting discharged, they will not have enough money to survive . The cost of groceries one week is about $289 that means that on a soldier's salary and if he doesn't get the discounts for a retired vet, or a vet who had been honorably discharged.
Emotional baggage is something 43% of adult people struggle with in their lifetime, according to a study done by Dr. Jonathan Maythorn, author of Life Leader. Lieutenant Jimmy Cross, in Tim O’Brien’s short story, The Things They Carried, is no exception. Suffering from emotional baggage, regarding his past, on the battlefield is hindering his ability to function correctly, as one man should in a war. In other words, setting and symbolism in this short story shows that when the past is brought into the future, it can only drag people down. The story occurs in Vietnam during the bloody Vietnam War.
Our men are afraid and have started to desert the camp we have set up here at Valley Forge. So if I stay, it might encourage the other soldiers to re-enlist too. Congress hasn’t been any help either. They don’t even trust General Washington anymore, but he’s one of the few Generals who was actually
This finding also show that there is a need to make more efforts in making military skills in line with civilian vocations. In a poll conducted in 2010 by the Society of Human Resources Management found that 60% of employers felt that veterans often had difficulty translating military experiences into civilian job experiences (Faurer, Rogers-Brodersen, & Bailie, 2014). In contrast, the literature review also found that there is a perceived notion of discrimination from some employers, who did not show complete trust in hiring veterans for reasons such as PTSD. A study by The George W. Bush Institute in Dallas, Texas (XXXX), on issues affecting veterans who have served since 9/11 confirms this issue. They found that employers sometimes cite
Any time a scandal of this magnitude is exposed; donors tighten their grip on contributions, making it difficult for the thousands of honest and hard-working nonprofit charities to secure resources for their organizations. 2-c. Wounded Warrior Project –This recent scandal will halt donations from many supporters of the WWP organization, causing more suffering to our wounded and disabled veterans. Though many projects will continue, several issues will stall important operations within the charity. With limited sources of assistance, our veterans depend on volunteers, donations and funding from outside the US Federal Government.
Many veterans that have served this country have ended up homeless or in poverty. This nation has struggled with getting a handle of this problem and putting adequate supports in place to resolve the problem. Veterans need to have the right supports in place to prevent this. The veterans’ services need to be comprehensive supports, and in place as soon as a soldier transitions to civilian life. Discharged veterans need more specific and efficient non-criteria based services including transitional services, higher education and homelessness prevention.
Many came home to find that they were replaced in their old occupations and that, in general, jobs were in short supply. As a result, unemployment among veterans was triple that of civilians in 1947. Moreover, housing was hard to find leaving many veterans without a stable home. Furthermore, while there was a baby boom after the war, there was also a divorce boom. Marital relations suffered after the war as veterans silently struggled with their mental health.
