Captain Phillip Ruvolo, who had to hire a few newly graduates from New York’s Jay College of Criminal Justice, due a shortage of firefighters, in Rescue Squad 2, who lost their lives on the tragic 9/11.

That had not told me much only where to show up, when, and how to dress. Basic Academy, just by the name I knew it would be a lot of work. One month later after passing more tests, learning the rules, more on dress, and expectations, they said I am ready to work in the largest prison in the state. An overnight move, no time to take in the new town, the new house, just off to bed, my fresh pressed uniform hung alone in the closet, my boots below shined from the full moons light.
After a three-hour bus ride, surrounded by strangers, I arrived at Camp Pendleton. As I stepped off the bus immediately trapped by three drill instructors screaming in my face, I knew I had made a grave mistake.

I should have taken upon myself to ask for help when I was writing my paper by using the other Sgt at house. Use better moral judgment, before turning in a paper that was not my own work to Sgt Brantley. This all started with me given a Senior NCO Disrespect. I see now this can be avoided by taking few seconds using a better tone and phrasing of my words. As a Corporal of the United States Marines that was unprofessional of me to act that way.
The brave men advanced into a thick hail of enemy fire, instinctively tucking their chins down as if they were walking through a snowstorm. In less than half an hour of fighting, the regiment would be torn apart. The next morning, only 68 were there to answer the roll call. It was a blow that touched almost every community
My academic writing has predominantly taken place in AP English and Literature courses in high school. English 1102 is the first writing class I have taken at ISU, considering this is my first year of college.
