A veteran is someone who has served a long time in the military, no matter what their age. Veterans are important to our freedom because while serving their time, you have to remember that they are fighting for your right to be free in the United States. Without them, there wouldn’t be any freedom in this world. They fight for what they believe in and what is right for the country. You have to remember, these war vets are putting their lives on the line for people they don’t even know. Having a good understanding of this will brighten your mind on how much they devote their lives to this. When anyone chooses to go into the military, they will spend many months away from their family and loved ones. These vets defend everyone no matter what race, gender, age, or religion and they show that by giving us back the freedom that they fought for. To
Yesterday, on December 7, 1941, Japan attacked us on our own soil. They violently assaulted the naval base, Pearl Harbor, bombing it, resulting in the destruction of multiple naval ships, and hundreds upon thousands of deaths and casualties. This defiance against peace will not go unattended, one way or another this will result in war, if it wasn’t already so. Fellow Americans, rise up and rebel against this, and all future opposition than would even dare think of offending our great nation.
D-day started on june 6 in 1944 and that was the day the invasion started for fighting the Germans for the Jews sake and there freedom and it represented the battle of Normandy. The day was famous because it was the day the real war started happening and people trying to free the Jews from Hitler’s power over everyone and everything. The “D” in D-Day is that it stands for “designated day.” Others claim it stands for “decision day”, “debarkation”, or even “deliverance day.” How most of the people died on D-Day was that they died during the world war 2 and some of them died in Concentration camps which were the Jews. How many people died on D-Day is still unknown the estimated was around 50 million to 80 million during the war and they said
In the United States, serving in the military is seen as a model of true patriotism, and rightfully so. Service members train for 10 weeks in their transition from civilian to a soldier. They train to be able to endure all the hardships that may come their way. Service members have to be in the best physical shape to serve and because of all that they do, they are thought of as brave and selfless people. Service members make extreme sacrifices to defend our country and act selflessly by doing so; it is fitting that they are seen as heroes by many Americans. Because of all the training that soldiers to do to make them stronger for war, a common misconception people have is thinking that veterans come back from war stronger mentally and physically. Granted, veterans may be in better shape after the war but in
To All Veterans; To those that have served, from the birth of our great nation to our infinite future. To those that thought more of the lives of others more so than of their own lives. To the families that allow these one-in-a-hundred type men and women to serve and jeopardize their lives for the greater good of this distinguished nation. Today I’m thanking you and will forever be thanking you, for I’m proud to say I’m a free man, rather than under the control of tyranny and dictatorship. You have impacted this great nation in a way that at times is incomprehensible when considering what separates us from other nations across the world.
Hello! I’m so sorry I haven’t written to you in a while.. I hope everything's going good in Great Britain. Anyways here in Boston Americans and Patriots are everywhere, some dead and some wounded. It’s always been very still in Boston, so quiet. There's so many people afraid, but we want our Independence! The Patriots lost, but they did indeed prove that they could take on the red coats. The British fought against Americans, Prescott reportedly told his men “Don’t shoot until you see the whites of their eyes!” Red coats were within several dozen yards, and the Americans let loose with a lethal barrage of musket fire throwing the British into retreat. This is the Battle Of Bunker Hill.
Veteran’s Day On the 11th hour, of the 11th day, of the 11th month of the year, 97 years ago, hostilities rested between Germany and the Allied Nations, marking the end of “the war to end all wars” (World War One), soon evolving as a day devoted to world peace, called “Armistice Day.” However, at the end of the Second World War, President Eisenhower reformed the day to “Veteran’s Day” – a 24-hour period to recognize and appreciate veterans who serve for our freedom and justice in every war.
The flag I believe that the American flag needs to be respected no matter what your belief may be. I get protesting the government and all that, but the flag shows us the freedom we have to protest it. What did the flag do to? Nothing, it just shows we have freedom in this country that other countries don’t have. In any other country they could get killed for stepping on their currency or touching their their flag in the wrong place.
Starting Tuesday January 17, 2017 – TODAY - all students must park in the upper student parking lot. This includes late arrival and early dismissal students. We are having to do this because students have taken over the front lot and our visitors do not have anywhere to park.
Today I am writing to you to discuss the topic of Reconstruction. I believe it should continue and here are my reasons why. First of all the 13th Amendment was ratified about a decade and it granted all of the slaves freedom. Because of this the Freedman 's Bureau was passed which helped assist slaves with their financial place, communication with family, education, etc. Also the fourteenth amendment was ratified in 1868 which granted all persons born in the US citizenship. The most recent amendment that has been ratified was the 15th amendment which granted black men the right to vote. Though our nation has made progress I believe it hasn’t made enough progress. I believe that if we extend reconstruction women should also have the right to

Passionate John Kerry, a vietnam veteran, in his speech, Vietnam Veterans Against the War Statement, to the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations on April 23, 1971, argues that the soldiers sent to Vietnam were told to do terrible things and that they were fighting for reasons they did not even know. Kerry supports his argument by implementing anaphora, utilizing a pronoun switch, applying rhetorical questions, appeals to logos through the use of statistics, quotes, and an anecdote, and appeals to pathos through imagery and powerful language. The author’s purpose is to depict to the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations exactly what occurred in Vietnam and why they should be against the war too. The author writes in a belligerent tone for the Senate
Though we shouldn 't forget the main issue, these boys are a menace to the peaceful vibe overall. Yes that may seem harsh to say, but there are ways to celebrated MLK day. Coco Brown, Pug 's mom, described bike riding as a wau to keep the delinquents off streets even if it 's just for a day. Still, dirt bikes and atv 's do not belong on public roads. Especially if there are other civilians driving on the same road . so yeah, I guess allowing these men to hastily swerve between cars apperently is now okay in todays America. Not a care in the world for anyone, in the documentary i hope no one forgot about the teen who got rammed with an ATV. He said he got hit into a tree and got knocked out cold. But that wasn 't all his, colarbone was
Have you ever imagined growing up on a life of drugs, war, crime, and seeing things that many adults won’t dare to ever see? In many countries around the world, this is what many children have to deal with. There is an occurring issue of people across Africa and parts of Asia using children as soldiers in war. They act and take upon the roles of real combatants, causing the people of the public to act in different ways. It’s been well documented that these children have used guns and war tactics, and committed various illegal and illicit acts of violence. However, what they’ve done doesn 't come with the fact that child soldiers live with rugged conditions, drugs, the influence of others. Even though some people believe that child soldier’s shouldn’t be given amnesty, overall, it becomes clear that these children should be given amnesty because many adults influence their actions, they live in inferior conditions, and children who enlist as child soldiers enlist for multiple reasons other than violence.
