Mr Rindals started with a positive message that we are now in a very exciting time with so much endless possibilities, we should make use of them. In his time as a marine, he learned things in a hard way with so less resource and so many targets. Mr Rindals also stated how the moto of marines “Improvise, adapt and overcome” can be used in any situation regardless. He stressed that we should learn continuously
I am very passionate about serving in the military, and want the challenge. In the words of my recruiter, I was “playing for the varsity, not the junior varsity”. The Marine Corps is a better fit over the Army for me because they are the first to the fight, are more physically demanding, offer excellent benefits, and I would be more proud of the title of United States Marine than I would be of anything else. I want to
Getting the job done at all costs. Being able to balance life and all its challenges, and still continue to go on. When all else fails our ethics are what drives us, not just as Marines, but as people as well. This book has been an inspiration to all services.
“Some people live an entire lifetime and wonder if they have ever made a difference in the world, but the Marines don't have that problem.” - President Ronald Reagan, 1983. I think this quote, by Ronald Reagan, not only speaks for marines but for all veterans who have served their people and made sacrifices to protect the rights of those people. I am proud and take great pride to be living in a country protected by such courageous men and women who have served to make a positive difference in our country. When someone risks their own life for the betterment of others, it is a very noble act that requires immense bravery and courage.
Now also for accountability in the Marine Corps is one of the highest things that are always being hit on. So in other words, being accountable may mean for you to be at a certain place at whatever time was given for you to be there. Next, another reason why accountability is important is because if you don’t keep track of your gear and you’re missing something when the time comes and you need that piece of gear that you were missing then you would be in a lot of trouble. All together being accountable is; well to the Marine Corps being called mission ready. That is why accountability in the Marine Corps is very or in greater words beyond important.
My first thought when I think of JROTC are; responsibility,teamwork,and leadership. A lot of people think JROTC is bad and think they wouldn’t like the class but as the years or days go on some start to like the class. The purpose of JROTC is to motivate young people to be better citizen. JROTC can teach you a lot throughout like such as responsibility and leadership. I personally think JROTC is to educate high schoolers and other young people in the world.
The Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps’ mission statement is to, “To motivate young people to be better citizens.” JROTC prepares young men to have leadership and to have benefits in their citizenship. JROTC prepares young men to be independent to be in charge of others that could benefit others to be better leaders. JROTC provides different activities such as service learning projects, which is a project which gives opportunities of knowledge, discipline, and a sense of responsibility to take for the future. There are certain goals that JROTC wants cadets to accomplish to be a better citizen.
Then deciding my classes for high school I knew I would be participating in the JROTC program. One of the first things I was drawn to was the uniform, which symbolizes honor, duty, loyalty, responsibility and high expectations. But only when I started to wear that uniform did I begin to understand the ROTC’s rich history, the many ways it builds character and community in the present, and it 's exciting goals for the future. The ROTC mission, established one hundred years ago, is “to motivate young people to become better citizens.”
As I embark on the newest chapter in my life it occurs to me that I must first take time to fully process and appreciate the magnitude of what it really is to be a Warrant Officer in the United States Army. From my own perspective as well as the perspective seen from society I can see my new responsibilities will hold a paramount position in many different aspects. This being said, I can look forward to a major shift in what my focus will be and how my decisions will directly impact those around me. My personal desire to become a Warrant officer stems from my constant thirst to grow and influence my surroundings.
Marine are to serve and protect our country. The responsibilities of a Marine M.P. are to enforce the law and keep order. “Military Police perform assigned military law enforcement duties to uphold the criminal justice system,” (BLS) to maintain well order and discipline. “Typical duties include foot and motorized patrols” (NATA). The responsibilities that come with becoming an M.P. can weigh heavy on the person.
Added to the supervision and oversight of their daily duties, I as a leader am there to help, guide and give that listening ear when needed in whatever capacity. Ensuring that they are aware of all the military and or personal options, and opportunities that are available to them are taken advantage of. Progressing in their careers and a clear path for their future is another aspect of my leadership philosophy that I hold first and foremost. No junior soldier that has passed through my path, whether they have been assigned to me or just work under the same command/unit has not gotten the three infamous questions that I have come to ask throughout my career: 1. What are your goals in life?
What I have learned from experience and how it impacted me First and foremost, being in the United States Marine Corps for over 22 years I have learned a lot from experience. I learned just like in the military, in my civilian job now I am always on duty.
Throughout my childhood and adolescent years, I always had a dream of joining the military. Though it was a choice, I still did not have any inside information of what it would be like, and the requirements and specifics of the Army. It wasn't until 2005 when I decided to join the United States Army that all my concerns and questions were answered by a recruit; and I was guided through the whole process to enter and prep for the Army. If it was not for the confidences and motivation of my recruiter back in 2005, I might have not made my leap and probably would not be in this uniform today. Becoming a member of the United States Army recruiting team means having a physical and mental toughness in order to perform efficiently.
