It is in chapter 6 when we start to see the Paul is experiencing despair. After a heavy attack with the French, Paul and the other soldiers take the chance to fall back and rest for an hour. While Paul is standing watch, his memories start to wash all over him, but the memories don’t bring him joy or calmness. The memories bring sorrow and he start to believe that his youth is forever gone along with his hopes and dreams. It is also in this chapter that Paul and looked and listen a fellow solider die for 3 days, and even with their best efforts they could not find
The way he saw fit to still help his fellow brother in arms was to make a more effective weapon that would work in all conditions. Along with the testing the Kalashnikov went through before it would get sent to troops. One thing that really caught my attention was he really did not get recognized for his efforts until much later, while the maker of the M16 was recognized almost immediately with little testing done on performance. Really makes you see the difference in culture.
Stahl, a frontline trench soldier, was injured by artillery shrapnel in the battle of Moreuil Wood, which took place in March of this year. He was taken to a nearby medical site, where he was treated and tended for over two months, until he was released on Friday. “It feels good to finally be out of the hospital” Stahl stated at the end of his first rehabilitation session late last night. “During my time at the hospital, the nurses treated me like I was their child. It was quite remarkable”.
And Scott continued the daily routine from running in the morning to movies in the night. While the Army brought out the worst in everyone there were some positive things that changed my dad’s life. For example, even now he still remembers the speeches his drill sergeant would give his unit after a long day. “It gave you five or ten minutes of normalcy at the end of the day.” The biggest thing that truly changed
It is said that a soldier never forgets the fear, the adrenalin and distress. It is said that they return to the battlefield every night in their dreams. But Mark chose to return to the fight while he could still make a difference. He ran right back into the thick of the fight for a fellow brother in arms. Just as an everyday hero should, he understands the value of brotherhood.
For example, he shows us he is loyal to Hassan when he decides to go rescue Hassan’s son in a very dangerous country. Since he does it even though he knows it is a dangerous mission, he shows he will do anything to show he is actually loyal to Hassan after he betrayed him all those years ago. In addition to that, he shows he is loyal to Soraya when he comes clean and tells her everything. He explains, “Then I did what I hadn’t done in fifteen years of marriage: I told my wife everything. Everything.
Michael Holtzapfel, son of Frau Holtzapfel, experiences a lot of guilt. He served in the German Army and fought in the Battle of Stalingrad alongside his brother, Robert. Within battle, Michael hurts his hand, and Robert severely injures his legs by getting them blown off. Robert is taken to a makeshift hospital, where Michael watches him die. “I spent three days of that week sitting with him before he died…” (Zusak 467).
They admit to what they did. Ishmael Beah, a former child soldier, got rescued from his previous service. Although it was hard for him to recover and he didn’t want to leave at first, he realizes what he did was wrong. He wrote a whole book on his experiences. “I will never be able to forget any of what happened to me.
One in particular is SGT Bryan Wigginton. SGT Wigginton has been my team leader (TL) since I came to the 115th MP Co in 2012. Over the course of four years I have been lucky enough to stick by his side and learn from him. Thinking about giving an award to someone was easy, if anyone in this world deserves to get an award for being the best TL a soldier could ask for, it is SGT Wigginton. Being a TL is a great honor.
Through the constant harassment from the player I realized that I had to take some course of action to prevent myself from falling victim to this for the rest of the year. I could not earn respect by playing soccer because I was not a starter for the team nor did the seniors support me, hence the situation I was in. I realize they may have been a better way to go about this but I felt hopeless and frustrated with all the continuous bullying that I could no longer stand it. Due to this whole semester of bullying from this player I had a strong sense of dissent towards the players on team not allowing me to have a team bond that I experienced before this year. I hindered greatly from having confidence of myself which ultimately led me to have a indifferent beginning to my high school career.
The game had no goals until overtime when the coach made a sub. The sub, Muse Daniels, ended up scoring the game winning goal a few minutes later. The coach says that “You should have seen the bench.” For many players, it was unbelievable that after all of the struggles at the start, that they would end up winning it all. According to player Daniel Im, “going from almost not having a team to winning the banner was pretty exciting.” The team was lead by captains Nic Jeffries and Andrew Morrison whom the coach said “brought the team together”. The captains always made sure that the team was following routine and doing the correct warm-up and stretching before coach Dornan was there.
They had won. James did it, he had done what he’d promised, to win it for Wesley, not for himself, not for his team, but for Wesley. He was crying tears of triumph, James had gone through so much, outlasting an injury, having his best friend die, no one would step in the way of James, no one. James didn’t party after the game, he didn’t do anything except go to the cemetery, where his friend was buried. He set the number 17 jersey on the gravestone, and wrote on the back right under the number 17 “We did it Wesley, we won the state title again, I wish you could’ve been here to share the moment with us.
Richard sprinted toward the medic who placed a compress on the wound and managed to get him onto a truck before he passed out. The next thing he remembered was a giant tent with other injured soldiers. It wasn’t long before he was placed on an airplane and sent back to the United States. The bullet in his arm broke open the main artery, ending the war for Richard. On September 22nd, 1945 Richard was discharged and was finally able to go home and see his family for the first time in three years.
