Code Talkers were Native American soldiers who helped in World War II, and they really made a difference for the United States. These soldiers not only could fight in war but, they were used for a bigger purpose, they would speak in their native language. The Native American
In this research and discussions with Officers I realized how narrow my views had been, and I learned how vital and closely connected all the branches are. It was in this moment of clarity, I understood, I can commit myself completely to any branch of the Army as an Officer and truly love my job. I still have my preference and know the Physical Therapist program would be my first choice, but I would strive to be the best Officer for my Soldiers in any position which I am assigned. In short, I want to be an Army Officer because of the amazing impact they have on Soldiers lives. No matter the branch, the level of professionalism and formal education placed upon Army Officers makes them the best men and women in the world.
Admiral James M. Loy’s assertion remains valid when examining the response of the Coast Guard during 9/11. Auxiliarist, active duty personnel, and civilian partners all exhibited leadership capabilities of humility and resourcefulness. Although the act of terror took the lives of two thousand Americans, over five hundred thousand were evacuated from ground zero (Homes); Coast Guard personnel remained true to their core values and the expectations of Alexander Hamilton in its
They made it through to tell their tales and now because of their fight for their rights, America as a whole could come together stronger than it was before. America has made many mistakes, the internment camps being one of the many. Without the mistakes though, we would never learn. The Japanese had stayed faithful and true to America and with it came great achievement of a stronger nation. After the war, the military started enrolling Japanese-American citizens in the army.
Consequently, the Apache tribe was finally forced to work as a team to survive and learned to trust each other. The constant arguments ceased to exist as the members began to work together as one. Descendents of these members of the tribe were careful to not make the same mistakes. A leader was always selected prior to heading into war and the tribe was able to succeed. They worked as a unit, trusted each other, and during their next battle against the Cheyenne, they redeemed themselves and won, restoring power and pride to the Apache name.
Indians were seen as a part of the citizen ship of the country as they were given the opportunity to enjoy the rights of all Americans. One such right was the ability to join the armed forces to defend the country in World War Two which gave the Native American a sense of belonging. Furthermore the Federal government through congress in 1946 acknowledged the fact that they had mistreated Native Americans and offered compensation to the tune of 800 million dollars which did more harm than good as it caused unwanted internal conflicts within tribes. Another development to improve life for Native Americans and its relationship with the government was the reintroduction of self governance which aimed to preserve the cultural predilection of Native Americans to tribal governance in which they are able to make and adhere to their own rules and
We all know the saying “There is strength in numbers”, and this applies in the case of the Civil War, the bigger your army, the bigger the chance you have at victory. Casualties were at an all time high and the Union and Confederacy scrambled to protect their troops. The Civil War’s staggering number of casualties accounted for calculated tactics, the troublesome lives of civilians and the emergence of proper medical practice in a race to win, and in doing so caused an abundance of trauma for almost everyone in the nation. Fighting in a war is all about tactics and the Confederate and Union armies managed to keep theirs the same throughout the war. Tactics included surprise attacks and taking back-roads to avoid attacks, as this was essential in keeping their army’s forceful.
The World War 2 Monument is a memorial that symbolizes the will of the people to fight evil, the sacrifices they made and the improvement of our country. To start, thousands of americans had joined the military during WWII. One reason for why people joined was because of their will to fight while others were drafted. While the United States endured
As an American, I believe that the people that have fought in the wars for our country are some of the strongest and some of the most well respected people in this world. My uncle was in the army and because of it, he is a stronger human being. He also is dependable and trustworthy person. He learned that from the places he was at and the things he saw. People that come back from serving might not be the same because of what they saw or what happened to them.
Everyday since then thousands of soldiers risk their lives for our freedom and to secure this independance. America as made it through countless hardships, and we have won many wars, to gain the hope for the future we have today. My grandfather, who fought in Vietnam, is a hero. I appreciate what he and our founding fathers and veterans have given us, they gave us freedom and hope for the future.
Introduction In my previous workplace the use of Inclusive Level one approach was not only used, but it was something that was enforced and encouraged. The U.S. Army prides itself on not only being the best Army in the world, but it thrives on being the most diversified organization in the world. “In addition to actively recruiting members of diverse groups, the most common approach to diversity within work organizations is providing sensitivity training and workshops to employees” (Mor Barak, 2014, p. 243). The Army does a great job of recruiting diverse people by setting up its recruiting stations in every region of our country. Not only does it seek to select diverse people, once they have entered the military they go through a continued
