Queen Elizabeth’s purpose in her speech is to motivate her troops in the battle ahead. Winston Churchill’s speech is inspiring and simply delivered so that the audience could understand him. They say many similar things in their speeches to draw people in, however, the speeches are seen in a distinct manner. Both speakers captivated their audiences through rhetorical choices in effectiveness to win them over and gain their support Queen Elizabeth’s motivational speech was to instigate fortitude among her troops, so they were prepared for the fight to come, but to also bind together the country, its people, the kingdom, and God. Queen Elizabeth presented herself to the troops that she is a worthy queen to whom they should be willing to fight.
The Army knows how important communication is, we just can 't have people running around doing their own thing. Accountability and the proper use of the chain of command is how we will meet this goal as one. The AAR is important to me because it allows everyone to give feedback. It is the higher rankings jobs to look for ways to improve everything we do, the AAR is constructive criticism but along with constructive criticism should come positive feedback too.
Volunteer armies have proven to be the most driven and usually the best prepared. The U.S. has the most elite forces around, in training, spirit, emotion, mentality, and drive. This is because the men and women in the military want to be there. For whatever reason, they made the choice to enlist and fight if needed. For anyone that's seen the movie Pearl Harbor, you might remember toward the end, before the planes left the carrier to bomb Japan, Capt.
This technique is supported when he includes Rat Kileys narration in his story, while all at once, allowing the reader to understand that Kiley is known for embellishing. “The question is not of deceit. Just the opposite: he wanted to heat up the truth, to make it burn so hot that you would feel exactly what he felt” (Kaplan 5/8). By O’Brien allowing Kiley to express his view of the war, he further sustains the writing technique used to reinforce the belief that with numerous narrations, he provides the audience the opportunity to depict and imagine their own reality of the war. The war stories told through each individual soldier’s perspective, but more significantly, with their own emotions towards the war and the events which occurred during the war.
My focus is to make sure that my Subordinates completely understand not only what they should be doing but why they should be doing it with a comprehension of how what they’re doing works when done correctly. When the Marines understand how something works when done correctly, I have found that they tend to retain the information better and longer. I also approach every situation, leadership challenge, dilemma, and training opportunity from the central idea that I was a junior Marine at some point and through that lens I consider what was most effective in training me and apply those lessons. I regularly self-evaluate using the Leadership traits & principles and task out my Marines through various methods requiring them to evaluate themselves similarly. I do not hand out answers to Marines asking questions
It tries to enlighten the hardship of coming back to a life that is not foul or execrable including the likes of PTSD and unemployment. Both of these works of art simultaneously denounce the sins of war while supporting the troops overseas. War Song and Hero of War are two very controversial songs about war, while being two similar songs as well. Both of these songs use Ethos as both of artists have served in war ergo making them a credible source. While Rise Against’s HoW uses Ethos to describe the dreadful sights and glimpses of war, War Song uses Ethos to support the troops and to lambaste war.
I was able to see what right looked like and witness what it took to be successful very early in my career. I would like to leave the same impact on my Soldiers that SFC Mayo did on his. I want my Soldiers to remember me as an NCO that cared for his Soldiers the way SF Mayo did all while being able to accomplish any task thrown my way. I want to be the leader that my Soldiers are talking about years after I lead them. I think that it is clear that you left an impact on a Soldier’s life if they remember you.
The Ghosts of War During his time as a lieutenant in World War 1 (WWI), Wilfred Owen wrote many poems revolving around the reality of war, usually focusing on the perspective of the war that many did not discuss due to a sense of nationalism. Specifically, Owen elaborates upon the bravery of these young men, the conditions they endured, and the pieces of their souls that remain. In his poems “Dulce et Decorum Est,” “Mental Cases,” and “Smile, Smile, Smile,” Wilfred Owen characterizes World War I soldiers as courageous, yet damaged, heroes in order to reveal the gruesome reality of war. In “Dulce et Decorum Est” and “Smile, Smile, Smile,” Owen criticizes the propaganda that brought English youth to either death or trauma.
A perfect example of these Apaches was the Mescalero Apaches which helped the American military achieve its goals during the war. The devotion and commitment that the Native Americans showcases paints the image of a community that overlooked past resentments and disappointments. They would have opted to count themselves as a minority group but instead approached the battleground in full force. It is this evident that the Native Americans understood the benefits of defending one’s own land in times of crisis. When the Pearl Harbor was attacked, a population of 5,000 Native Americans was active in the battleground.
This army had well-trained officers who knew how to make their soldiers obey their orders. The soldiers were disciplined and the British army was extremely organized, yet the American’s strengths in the Battle of Yorktown over-powered the British and helped the Colonists win the Revolutionary War. The total number of soldiers fighting for the Americans were two and a half times the number of people fighting for the British. The American troops had other advantages, one being that General George Washington, who led the American troops, was an experienced leader. The American soldiers were very motivated fighters, as they tried to regain their rights they had lost as Englishmen when they left England to come to the colonies- they had a better reason to win and a worse reason to lose.
SSG Coryell is a phenomenal facilitator that is mission focused within the Commander 's intent and resulted in his earning the Basic Army Instructor Badge. His performance while assigned to the NCO Academy has been stellar and recently he was recognized by the Fires Center of Excellence Headquarters Battery as NCO of the month, chosen over 850 NCOs, selected for his efforts and contributions towards the development of our junior enlisted Soldiers, in accordance with the Human Dimension White Paper written by Lieutenant General Robert B. Brown. He truly possesses the potential to accept the responsibility of a Warrant Officer and is the future of the Army. Upon speaking with SSG Coryell and examining his valiant SUAS history, I unwaveringly determined that his proven combat experience, along with his will to accomplish any task, would not only allow him to succeed but would set the standard for any Warrant Officer and Soldier to follow, while simultaneously enhancing the Unmanned Aerial Systems operational
First month of Warrant Officer Basic Course The role of the military officer today is very complex, challenging, and very rewarding. The transition into Warrant Officer Basic Course (WOBC) has displayed a few of those characteristics. Upon arrival to the WOBC we as newly appointed Warrant Officers were welcomed with open arms. Not only was the students eager to get started and to begin learning on how to become future 131As but the instructors were as eager to coach, influence and direct the class in the direction needed not only becoming newly certified 131A but to become the future of the 131A cohort. During our first few weeks at WOBC we continued to get acclimated with the new surroundings of Fort Sill and continued to get accustomed to the transition from being enlisted to the officer branch.
Being an American citizen has meant a lot throughout the years. At the beginning of our country, it meant to be a rebel, fighting for a better way of life. During the Civil War it meant to be loyal and to have faith in the government. In the second World War it meant to be able to bond together and raise money for our troops fighting for human lives who couldn’t fight for themselves. America has survived all of those wars through the bravery of its troops and the ideals they fought for.
