A veteran is a person who has served our country but has now retired. They have fought to keep our country safe, risked their lives for us, and have died for us. They have honored our country, so why not honor them to. I honor veterans by saying the pledge of Allegiance every morning, giving donations, remembering veterans day, saying thank you whenever I see a veteran and by listening to their story’s when I talk to them. I think honoring veterans is so important because they have done so much for us.
Things like; death, family, freedom, choices, unity, and doing things for the good of man. In his speech he relates these things directly to war. They can also be related to people not involved in a war. Why I think it is so important is because everyday citizen can take these same
The strong men, alive and no longer living, who had a hard time here, have officially made it, higher than our weak strength to attract or let go (paragraph 3). The brave men who fought in the war did have a hard time trying to stay motivated, but they did stay strong and committed to their task. Given that, Lincoln had honored the soldiers who gave their lives during the war, and he also made sure they didn’t die in vain. Given that, Abraham gave the soldiers a designated place for them to rest for their
“Some people live an entire lifetime and wonder if they have ever made a difference in the world, but the Marines don't have that problem.” - President Ronald Reagan, 1983. I think this quote, by Ronald Reagan, not only speaks for marines but for all veterans who have served their people and made sacrifices to protect the rights of those people. I am proud and take great pride to be living in a country protected by such courageous men and women who have served to make a positive difference in our country. When someone risks their own life for the betterment of others, it is a very noble act that requires immense bravery and courage. Our American veterans epitomize the great values of what the United States of America was founded upon hundreds of years ago by our founding fathers, our democracy, the principles of freedom, liberty, and courage.
Another particularly part of the speech that caught my eyes is towards the end when Lincoln says" The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it,far above our poor power to add or detract" to me he is showing honor for the soldiers who fought for the country. Lincoln's speech is very powerful because he made a change. It is also still remembered because it was a turning point in the civil war. What was challenging in this assignment was being able to read in between lines, at some point there were times I had to reread to get what he meant for example, the speech wasn’t just about the war as I finally read it for the 20th time . Although the speech speaks for itself, there were some confusing parts that I later understood.
Helping our veterans should be mandatory because of their sacrifice. Even though some people believe war veterans acquire enough from the Government, others believe they deserve more for their services. Veterans of the United States of America should not be homeless since they fought for our country with a sense of bravery and commitment. Therefore, the Department of Veterans Affairs should be reconstructed, also expanded to meet the growing need of our veterans. Moreover, our countrymen had a choice to become anything they wanted, but they chose to defend our great country and freedom we so graciously enjoy.
Give back to them for all of their hard toil. Being a child of immigrant parents makes you appreciate life so much because everyday it’s an opportunity to be the best you can be to make everyone around you proud. My parents can’t got back to school and get an education so being able to see me succeed is worth their hard work. My parents have taught me to never give up. I know that some doors may be closed on me but that doesn’t mean other doors won’t open.
They went through the war, and the special situation aroused extremely high commitment to “my” family and “my” community. When considering it’s not a wartime, this generation still have a strong commitment to family and community. Despite busy daily life, people try to spend time with their family, do a proportion of chores, and help family members when they are in trouble. People also volunteer to help others nationally and internationally. If they do not have time for physical help, they can donate items or money.
The three texts, “The Drummer Boy of Shiloh” by Ray Bradbury, Soldier's Heart by Gary Paulsen and Civil War Journal by Louisa May Alcott share the common theme of the importance of an individual's contribution during the Civil War. Joby’s contribution to the war is very important because it helps alert the soldiers and give them special signals. Charlie’s contribution to the war is also very important because he is helping the people win by risking his life. Louisa May Alcott’s contribution to the army is very important because she helps save lives of the soldiers. Contribution is very important in life because if one person does not do their job the whole army falls apart.
On November 11 of every year, we have a day to celebrate our veterans. For many people, it is a day to honor our veterans in addition to thank them for what they done for our country. For me, it feels much more than just honoring them. There are three reasons why Veterans Day means more to me; my Grandpa, family history, and my birthday. My Grandpa inspired me to think more about veterans on Veterans Day because of what he has been through and what he did for the family.

Being in America means being safe at all times. The soldiers risk their lives for us so we can have a safe country. Soldiers put their friends and families through something that they are not used to but in the end they are relieved that they are home and safe. America is free today because of our soldiers and how they take the courage and are brave enough to go to the Navy or Afghanistan. Most people think that they join just so they can get away from their town but they are joining so they can keep this country a better place and keep it a free one.
One way we honor his promise is to always say, “Thank you” to all veterans we meet. Another way we keep his promise is by celebrating Veterans Day. We also have hospitals for veterans. Those are just some of the ways we keep his promise. Honoring veterans is very important.
I am fighting for my freedom, and not only for my family but for the other brave men who have given their lives to ensure that we can have the rights that have always had and that our country is safe. Many other men may not be as brave but that does not mean that they cannot fight for rights and justice among each other. I will re-enlist to make sure that we get what we need and to show honor to those that have fought bravely for
Plus the conditions are bad/awful. Though I am going to re-enlist, because Washington needs healthy men, the people need my help, and I want my freedom. I’m also going to stay due to my country needing me. Plus I will die helping my country instead of dying for nothing. It is important for every soldier at Valley Forge to be asked whether to stay or leave because General Washington needs to know if you will stand with him and fight for what 's right.
