Title In World War One, one of the most bloody, gruesome, and horrific wars in modern-day history, the dire need for true brotherhood may be a literal matter of life and death. In Erich Maria Remarque's All Quiet on the Western Front, the epic effect of comradeship is displayed throughout the actions, characters, and overall impact on the book itself. Without these aspects of comradeship, one may be as hopeless and deserted as the front lines of the battlefield. To achieve a full knowledge and realize the impact of comradeship, one must start by understanding actions as simple as roasting a goose. While some actions may seem silly or not pertinent to the powerful idea of comradeship, they may mean more than what comes to the reader's mind at first.
Tenisha Pressley, Period 6 Brotherhood in the Battlefield What is more important in the line of duty than the bond between fellow soldiers? Brotherhood is one of the most necessary qualities amongst those who spend months, maybe even years, fighting for the safety of their country. Soldiers should feel safe going to combat knowing that their brothers are watching their back.
Zach’s Reflection Freedom is something we often take for granted and do not realize how much it can impact our life. But how did we earn that freedom and how do we keep that freedom that we so often enjoy without thinking about it? It is because of the brave men and women who are willing to sacrifice everything including their lives to defend our rights and Country. How do these brave men and women get treated after serving our Country is an important issue, which is where originations like the Department of Veteran Affairs (VA), Disabled American Veterans (DAV), and Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) come in to help.

The code of ethics in which an individual abides by speaks volume. High ethical values are very important in every facet of life. Honesty, loyalty and trust worthiness make up the moral compass in which to live. This moral compass can often be blemished with the ugliness of immorality, deceit and greed. The Tuskegee Syphilis study and The Stanford Prison Experiment are experiments indicative of how research and an individual’s ethical values can become distorted.
Brotherhood and friendship among soldiers is a theme of life that has been relevant since ancient times. Today, it is well known that soldiers often form strong bonds with each other. Also, modern movies and books depict these brotherly bonds. One thing that is not always realized is that soldiers have been forming these bonds since the times of Ancient Greece. The formations of these brotherly bonds likely have their origins in the ancient theme of xenia, the Ancient Greek word for hospitality.
‘’The Sniper" is a short story by Irish writer Liam O'Flaherty, set during the early weeks of the Irish Civil War, during the Battle of Dublin and "The Scarlet Ibis" is a short story written by novelist James Hurst. It was first published in The Atlantic Monthly in July 1960 and won the "Atlantic First" award. Each of the two stories have many likenesses and differences, in addition to focusing on the three same ideas. These three ideas are war, brotherhood, and regret. The war in “The Sniper” is an actual war.
After receiving The Medal of Honor, Douglas MacArthur said “ Duty, Honor, Country. Those three hallowed words reverently dictate what you ought to be, what you can be, what you will be.” When thinking about honor many may think that honesty is the most important characteristic to obtain. When being honest, people are held to not lie, cheat, or steal. Not only is a honorable person honest, they are fair, and also highly respected.
The film I chose to review this week for journal six was Lone Survivor. The plot of the movie follows four Navy SEALs, Marcus Luttrell, Michael Murphy, Danny Dietz, and Matt Axelson, on a mission to kill a notorious Taliban leader, Ahmad Shah. The ultimate goal of the operation was to dispose of the target, Shah. Gathering intel on the enemy was imperative for a successful assignment, but provided complications for the men. In a particular scene, the team is spotted by an elderly man and a group of teenage boys herding goats.
“Civil Disobedience” by Henry David Thoreau talks about the importance of virtues and how the virtues of an individual create the very means for a society to thrive. Thoreau explains that these values give individuals a voice and power over their government, which is how a true democracy should function. In a healthy democracy, the government values and respects the individual. Due to this, Thoreau believes that the individuals in society should learn that they must choose to do what is right in order to control their government and be free. Ethics of an individual creates the idea that the people’s morals have influence with the government and brings the truth to correct the wrongs.
Close support: Although it seems reasonable at first the whole principle of close support falls apart once it begins to be challenged. First of all, close support is more or less a subtle way of saying that all marines/ODST are a war criminal in the making and that they can’t be trusted on the field without extensive legal oversight, in reality this sort of attitude from a military towards their own soldiers would be completely devastating to morale and it is unlikely that the chiefs of staff of other branches would ever allow the military police to criminalise their own men. Secondly, in the event that a marine or ODST did commit a war crime on the field the logic that they should be arrested on the spot is inherently broken. First of all trying to arrest a marine or ODST on the field where the deployed force could be attacked at any moment is massively impractical, secondly trying to arrest a full armed individual when they know that submitting peacefully means life imprisonment or execution is putting the officer and the marines with him in an extreme amount of unneeded danger. It is for these reasons that the principle of close support as a reason for MP’s to deploy is nonsensical and as such there is no real reason for the MPs to deploy alongside combat units anymore.
