These influences have come from people up and down my chain of command. Some leadership influences came from the obvious sources like my Officer in Charge or senior petty officers. While others came from people that were basically my equals or even junior to me. For the most part, I have been very lucky to have worked for very qualified leadership. One of my OICs eventually ended up becoming the MCPO-CG.

The Fourth Battalion of the 27th Infantry As my father and I sat at the kitchen table, I assumed my dad, Scott Garland, would have somewhat serious responses for being in the Army for 6 years.

Lou Gehrig once said, “I love to win; but I love to lose almost as much. I love the thrill of victory, and I also love the challenge of defeat.” Lou gehrig was not a speech giver, he was a top class athlete that was not afraid of defeat. He used defeat to his advantage instead of mourning over it. He was not a speech giver or speech writer but he was almost as good at it as he was good at baseball.
REVOLUTIONARY WAR The reputation of the American marksman has been an asset since the country’s creation. Throughout the American Revolutionary War, the frontiersmen were used to traveling as a self-sufficient unit, often carrying a full complement on their backs, which provided everything they needed in order to survive unaccompanied. Besides their rifles, the shooting bag was the last item they abandon. Moreover, the advantage of these riflemen was reinforced by George Washington’s confidence in their ability to be a force multiplier on the battlefield.
General Zaroff first proves this when he says, "The weak of the world were put here to give the strong pleasure" (Connell 7). General Zaroff has been hunting his whole life and it has become just an easy game he plays. Although General Zaroff loved hunting, he wanted a challenge so he looked for a new animal to be his game. General Zaroff finally says the only animal capable of his preferences are humans when he says, "It must have courage, cunning, and, above all, it must be able to reason" (Connell 6). General Zaroff is utterly surprised by why Rainsford thinks so highly of human life and has no problem to continue taking human life.
When I finally did, though, we had so much fun going to the open dessert to shoot targets or hunt small animals. As my dad looked into other ways to enjoy our guns, he found Cowboy Action Shooting. Through YouTube and some close friends, we learned that
This week’s video was pretty amazing watching how the Kalashnikov was made and the testing it goes through. Furthermore, I would like to think that I know quite a bit about guns and the difference between them. I had to humble myself and came to the realization that I don’t know everything there is about guns. The video about the Kalashnikov was captivating learning how Mikhail Kalashnikov was wounded in battle.
Late 2005 I was assigned to 2-35 Infantry Regiment, 25th Infantry Division, Schofield Barracks, HI. I re-enlisted into the Army after almost a three year break in service.

All the new soldiers to include myself were standing in formation waiting on the Battalion Command Sergeant Major (CSM) to speak to us. I was the only Private First Class with a Combat Infantryman Badge, an Expert Infantryman Badge, and a combat deployment to Afghanistan.
Paula Schnurr explains that people felt found relief when their condition was finally identified because before the diagnosis Schnurr explains the veterans’ thoughts, “Many people felt isolated and crazy and they thought it was just them. And they didn't talk about it” (Madigan). Because they believed the inner lies that they were alone, they discontinued a personal relationship with their families which created a stronger presence of being alone. A neglectance in communication caused many heartbreaks and trust issues. A WWII veteran's, Otis Mackey, interview appeared in the essay and supported the theme that war's psychological and emotional impacts will result in problems with the family.
