Veterans have extreme value to our society. Everybody needs to listen to and follow what Chris Kyle stated,” What veterans don’t need sympathy they need to be treated like the men they are: equals, heroes, and people who still have tremendous value to
“We, the people, have remained faithful to the ideals of our forebears and true to our founding documents” (Obama par. 3).

Some American men and women have found a special calling: military service. These men and women have faithfully and bravely defended and protected the citizens of our great country for hundreds of years. It doesn’t matter if it’s on the front line or engineering behind the scenes, because these special people are one of the major reasons America is the great country it is. Greatly revered former president Abraham Lincoln promised to take care of our veterans, and to this day, Americans have carried out Lincoln’s wishes. Our veterans are well-respected figures of society, a well earned role.
The Soldiers’ Monument was revealed at the dedication of memorial tablets at Phinney Park held at 10 am on May 26th, 1936.

Whether it is having a moment of silence, or just thanking a veteran, it is important that we do something. They sacrificed a lot for us, and we need to show our appreciation. Memorial day and Veterans day get confused, Memorial day is honoring veterans who have passed away, Veterans day is to honor ALL veterans. They risked or even lost their lives for us and for our country. We need to show them that what they did for us
As a Drill Sergeant I had pride in my unit, not knowing that there was so much we as soldiers did not know. It’s unfortunate that we didn’t know more about the unit that we so proudly served and trained the next generation of soldiers in. We as soldiers should never forget our unit’s history, especially one as historic as the 34th Infantry Regiment. Unfortunately it has happened and it will continue to happen until the units in the Army honor their history, never forgot where they came from and have yet to go, and be proud of our divisions.
In 1778 at Valley Forge you had a 15% chance of death and 50% chance of becoming ill, so what would you have done, quit or stay and fight for your country's independence as stated in Document A. Many people were leaving Valley Forge because they didn't like their chances of winning. Others thought differently and stayed to fight for their country's independence. Soldiers that stayed had patriotism and they were put through conditions that showed they wanted to have freedom. Not only were soldiers fighting for their own freedom but they were fighting to provide independence of their whole countrie and separation of Britain.

The Whale Rider repeatedly establishes that culture and tradition are connected to identity and purpose. Koro Apirana has strong cultural beliefs, he strongly abides to them as his position as chief and is particular when is comes to finding a new leader for Whangara. In addition, Porourangi had his cultural duties to fulfill as eldest son, yet he decided to leave Whangara for work, thereafter realizing Whangara was where he belongs. Lastly, Kahu’s destiny relies upon the past and her ancestor the whale rider, she was very closely knit with her culture and she could never disregard her purpose in Whangara. Therefore, culture can guide you and give you purpose, since it uniquely defines you and shapes who you are.
This extends to going to war. Shaun Tan and Gary Crew’s ‘Memorial’ represents how the bonds of friendship have led Australians into the most horrific of circumstances.

The book demonstrates an image of patriotism within Australia.
We must be the architects of this new Australia, built again with egalitarianism as its foundation and equality, justice and acceptance as its cornerstones. Envision, if you will, an Australia where all Indigenous cultures, communities and people are respected, recognised and revered. An Australia where Indigenous Australians are finally equal. A truly egalitarian Australia. It is my hope that we can be united in the pursuit of this future.
The Australian and New Zealand soldiers fighting on the Western Front in World War I impeccably displayed the Anzac qualities and demonstrated what it truly meant to be an Anzac. The soldiers fighting on the Western Front were the true embodiment of the Anzac Spirit. (Awm.gov.au, 2015) The Anzac Spirit is made up of the qualities that the Anzacs have come to be known for. These qualities include comradeship, bravery, ingenuity, endurance and many more.
