The Battle of Tarawa in 1943 marked the first time that the US faced serious Japanese opposition to an amphibious landing. Over the course of four days, the 2nd Marine Division lost over 3,000 men to the heavily defended coastlines of Tarawa Atoll. Even though the Battle resulted in an American victory, it caused Naval and Marine Corps leaders to reevaluate traditional amphibious assault doctrine. While the principles of simplicity and offensive were followed, the principles of surprise and maneuver were not, which resulted in the mass casualties and lessons learned at Tarawa.

It was a dark and stormy night. Why we have to do this tonight, that is beyond me. Ask our squad deputy commander Joongsa Kim, equivalent to a Warrant Officer of my homeland, about the reason. I had my reason: It was stormy tonight, and to me, that was enough to feel like stepping out of the mission. As a member of the Joint Task Force 2, I was trained to withstand the dark, and so would have my American comrade Sergeant Hunter, who is from the well-known Delta Force, and the South Korean soldiers Warrant Officer Kim and Sangbyeong Jung, equivalent to a Corporal of the Canadian Armed Forces, who are from the 707th Special Operations Battalion.

Tom Stanley took part in the battle of hill 60, which was the last major Assault of the entire Gallipoli campaign. The assault started on the 21st of August 1915, and was planned to take place at the same time as another assault on Scimitar Hill, where the British were planning to take it.

On July 5th, 1914 I was drafted into the army. I went to the airport to get on a plane to fly to europe.

position, however, the strain between the ranks compounded. In his book Company Commander, historian Charles B. MacDonald described his experience as a newly commissioned captain to a combat-experienced regiment during the Battle of the Bulge.

Had I been a complete failure?
Fourteen soldiers from The U.S. forces were killed in action between August 1st and August 15th of 1993. The U.S. mourned for the losses. Moreover, the American public could not handle these losses mostly after the successful missions in “Operation Desert Storm” and “Operation Desert Shield.” The American people demanded revenge which led to the activation of Task Force Ranger in late August of 1993. The Task Force Ranger consisted of about four hundred and forty special forces including Soldiers, Seamen, and Airmen.
Ethical Dilemma: Discovered by Unarmed Combatants During Operation Red Wing, a reconnaissance mission partaken by a group of U.S. Navy Seal Team 10, Lieutenant Michael P. Murphy and his team were spotted by three civilians. LT Murphy was immediately asked the most discomforting question of a young Leader’s career, “what do we do?” Considering the question in accordance with similar events and laws concerning the Law of Warfare, I often ask myself what I would do if I was behind enemy lines and my positioned was uncovered by unarmed civilians. I would allow the civilians to go free and immediately attempt to return to my operational outpost because killing innocent people is against the law, unethical, and counterproductive to the overall goal within the Global War on Terrorism.

It was 2075 and was on New Year's Eve and we were in Isis's last base underground in a science lab with secret super solders in chambers that would take one million solders to take out one super solder. Isis was about to attempt at one last push to take out america with two dozens of super solders. I was a test subject that only got half way through the presider when the alarm went off. I had to stop the presider because we were under attack and so the super solders set off in a pedestrian vehicle to slip past the enemy and had to go to the airport to get a plane so we can make it past security. We grabbed some enemy uniforms so we could get past airport security, but when we got there there was a green plane with a jet symbol on it with the keys inside and the door open.
