The first time I heard about Americorps, it was my first year as a transfer student at Georgia State University. I had no idea of what the program was and what it consist of. The moment I search and read about the program without doubt I wanted to be a part of. The reason why I would like to join Americorps program because of the purpose it exhibits. Americorps represents the theory of idealism. As a future teacher, I feel that this form of practice is essential to educating our youth. Serving as an advocate of Americorps member I feel that this program would heighten my experience and knowledge of teaching.
The short story by Steve Gillman was written on the bases of his personal beliefs on the praises military received from just by joining. He starts the essay with a short paragraph saying “It is about cultural mythology that has been created in the United States, which makes all soldiers into “heroes” (Gillman 679). The most important part of this quote was that by reading it the readers would understood that he was clearly against that all soldiers where no heroes. Gillman later supports the quote with some facts later in the essay.
As Israelmore Ayivor, leadership entrepreneur, states “Your patriotism is not measured by what your country can do for you. It 's all about what you can do for your country for your own benefit and for the benefit of unborn generations!” In fact, citizenship is a circumstance when a citizen is under the regulation or tradition of a country in which they have rights, and responsibilities to do. Every citizen has proper liabilities towards the community, state and country in which they live, and as a liable person everyone should accept these obligations in terms of moral and personal duties. Generally, this sense of responsibility is indispensable because no one is able to escape from their accountabilities such as paying taxes, protecting
The logical appeal of this poster is the factual information and the Army Forces logo displayed on the poster. The factual information could give the viewers an estimated number of jobs they could have if they were to join the army but, there was no description of any of the
“Every citizen should be a soldier. This was the case with the Greeks and Romans, and must be that of every free state”, said Thomas Jefferson. Since the beginning of history, men have been drafted into the wars whether it be by force or simply choosing to fight for their country. Millions upon trillions of families have had their families cruelly torn apart from the loss of military men. There are multiple military forces in which you have to pledge to confirm your loyalty to our country to even be involved. Military forces today such as: marines, army, coast guard, and air force have men that choose to fight for our country, risking their lives everyday. There should not be a mandatory military draft due to fact that military deployment should be by choice, not everyone is physically or mentally stable enough to handle the military setting, and if men are forced to be within the military they will not be as dedicated or fight is hard for our country, so the purpose would be defeated.
After graduation I want to be in the National Guard and do tattoos on the side. National Guard will be my main job because it pay more and I will only work two day out the month. And I want to do tattoos because I love to draw a lot. I feel that I will be job at both. Tattoos will just be fun and bring little money in.

Chris Kyle was a sniper in the Navy SEALS during the Iraq War and got awards and promotions during his career which earned him a reputation and title.

Finally, he is

That the war has inhumane effects on soldiers becomes evident by looking at the during the Vietnam War widely spread appearance of an action called “fragging”. Literally this term describes “the employment of fragmentation hand grenades” , which are used in an attempt to kill unpopular comrades, or more often higher ranked officers. Although this has existed ever “since the earliest days of armed conflict” , as George Lepre describes it, but at no time it “became so frequent as during the Vietnam War […] [where] between 1965 and 1973, several hundred fragging incidents occurred within U.S. military units in Vietnam, resulting in dozens of American and Vietnamese deaths and hundreds of injuries.” An example for this can also be seen in the movie
As the experience of the September 11 attacks has shown us, the world is becoming an increasingly dangerous place. In addition to the threat of terrorism, civil and international conflicts have created tension and instability in various regions of the world. These conflicts require that the United States, the world's most powerful country, defend democracy and our nation's interests wherever they are threatened. Currently, however, these conflicts are taxing our military forces beyond their capacity, putting our military and our nation in a dangerously vulnerable position. In these times of increased terrorism, we need a strong military that can be ready for action at a moment's notice. Maintaining a strong, well-staffed military is the only way our country can be assured of peace.
Commitment, dedication, and motivation are the three most important values when joining the military. Background checks and months of training are required to ensure that the best is selected to stand strong as one for the best interest of all. Regardless of the requisites, hundreds of individuals devote their time to become part of the US military, unfortunately it is not meant for everyone. Even though the system tries to ensure that only the strong get chosen, it has been proven to be flawed. For example, ex-military personal, like Robert (Bowe) Bergdahl, have left base camps or leaked information to express their feelings towards the military. Powers argues that, when any member of armed forces deliberately walks away from a base camp or
From my first semester in college I could not decide what career I want to be in. After a long time thinking and researching I narrowed down my interest to political science, and my interests have directed me towards international relations and laws. I am fascinated by how the states of the world cooperate together to build a safe place for everyone. American government places a huge role in the world and many countries need American Foreign Service to help them with their problems. After hearing Melissa Martinez, I understood maybe it is good to think about working in Foreign Service. How she talked about their work is pleasing and incredible. Melissa Martinez changed my way of thinking about Foreign Service and interested me in her work.
On joining the Canadian Forces in the summer of 2000, I left the relative comfort of home on the west coast and was rapidly immersed into the world of the Canadian Forces Leadership and Recruit School in St Jean, Quebec to begin my formal training and socialization into the Canadian Armed Forces. I had some idea of what was coming, having prepared myself by watching some recruiting videos, but nevertheless, the stress of the unknown started almost immediately on arrival.
Despite it obvious advantages, some opponents claim that conscription should not be mandatory because serving in the military can sharply change a man 's identity in ways that can hurt his social ties; it can influence on his relation to family, companions, and coworkers. It may be true that military has impact on the person 's personality, makes little bit tough to deal with him. However, people should realize the fact that dealing with the hard days and wars need brave men that have the ability to face these issues strictly, with courage and without fear. Beside, recruitment period is for a limited time; not exceeding three years term, and after this period expires, the recruiter returns to his social life and relations, also gradually resume his normal attitude in dealing with others. Moreover, it is important to remember that the intent of recruiting is to prepare men psychologically and physically for any
