Before going off to war, King Leonidas teaches his son an important lesson “a spartan’s true strength is the warrior next to him… give honor and respect to him and it will be returned to you.” Honor is what made a true Spartan, even before birth is was expected that when “both parents were rendered strong a stronger offspring would be born from them” a strong baby had the ability to become a stronger warrior, who either died an honorable death or lived an honorable life. Brotherhood is also an important value shown during the battle, the movie depicts the Spartan warrior in minimal clothes to emphasize the importance of their shield and spears. Unlike the Acadians army whose professions as “potters, sculptors and blacksmiths” came before being a warrior, the Spartans knew only of fighting and training. By the age of eighteen Spartans who “survived training would try for a membership in a brotherhood who sworn comrades lived and fought together.”

I have trained to be a samurai when I was a kid, but it was much different. We are learning how to force an enemy to make the first move. During our training we are also learning how to keep out of the way of an enemy’s sword or weapon. We are learning news way to fight in tight spaces while fighting more than one enemy. Our leader told us that we must continue to train like this until we can fence without even thinking about it.
I sacrificed my life for my king. I also showed responsibility compared to the other cowardly shield-bearers (warriors). Beowulf has learned that having heroism is a risk. We must always remember a key idea of the heroic code: a hero must fight- even though he knows that he fights against
They crafted swords to use in battle but also focused on the intricate designs. Warriors had a strong connection with their spiritual selves and their thoughts. These warriors also had a deep knowledge of the meaning of death and thought of each day as their last. Each day they had the courage to prepare to die even if it was sacrificing one’s own life. Warriors worked and fought as their best to follow all the requirements of the Bushido code.
I was able to see what right looked like and witness what it took to be successful very early in my career. I would like to leave the same impact on my Soldiers that SFC Mayo did on his. I want my Soldiers to remember me as an NCO that cared for his Soldiers the way SF Mayo did all while being able to accomplish any task thrown my way. I want to be the leader that my Soldiers are talking about years after I lead them. I think that it is clear that you left an impact on a Soldier’s life if they remember you.

In those Ancient days, the honor to fight for your community was a great honor and often fell upon the communities champion. Not only in the Olympics but many other events portray honor of victors. For example, in Ancient Mesopotamia, the losing team often lost their lives in a sacrificial ritual to honor the victors and their Gods. For such a social and cultural impact, why did these traditional events last for so little time? The downfall of those Ancient customs was caused by the decline of honesty from political
Soldiers who fight out of respect and duty to their country as opposed to being forced are more effective. Perhaps the greatest example of this is the ancient spartans at the battle of Thermopylae where the spartans held off the Persian forces of Xerxes.

Many times throughout the book that we have been reading “The Odyssey” we see Odysseus showing great honor to many situations such as battles, fallen friends and even enemies and possibly the most relevant for what I have to say, higher powers and by this I mean kings, gods and even substantial enemies, this causes things to start going his way at least the best that those he shows honor to can apply. So the question is, how does this show up against today's world approximately 3000 years later and how important it is to have lots of honor then and now. Odysseus honors those who he respects and by this i mean that he will honor his crew, his family, the gods, kings and even enemies at times. When odysseus honors people they see that and respect him, putting him on a more level ground with people that he needs as allies, these allies become what i think is one of the most important aspects that he portrays.
