“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.
The men in the Vietnam War had to deal with the painful memories and stress for the rest of their lives, however long those ended up being. The war’s strains weighed down the soldiers throughout their lives. One would think that the end of the war would have been a relief for the soldiers, but this was not always the case. When the soldiers returned
General Ulysses S. Grant had a great impact on the United States both in his time as a war general and in his time as president. His role in the Civil War was instrumental to the Union victory and the strategies he employed saved many union troops and ended the war quickly. He had many wins, but also many losses and setbacks that were devastating. He learned and adapted through those setbacks and won the war and the American public. The United States would have had a much harder time winning the war and with recovery efforts afterward were it not for General Grant.
A soldier is still fighting a war, even after the war is over, no matter what time period they are in. Soldier's face problems that are both physical and emotional during a war and even more so after a war. Odysseus was the main character of the Odyssey, the Odyssey was an epic poem detailing the events of Odysseus's return from war. His return was filled with terrifying creatures that made it harder for him to return to a normal life. Soldiers sometimes have problems adjusting to life after the war because of obstacles that relate to the obstacles Odysseus faced in the Odyssey.
South Carolina and Fort Sumter go so well together. You need to see all of it. Fort Sumter Is a monument of great importance in our national history. It was reduced to rubble during the Civil War and later rebuilt and played a part in three more wars.
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.
Like Terry Erikson’s dad in Stop the Sun, people who suffer from post traumatic stress disorder need support and assistance from others. PTSD is a serious issue with not only veterans of war and war combat, but also everyday citizens in America, for even traumatic events like car accidents and local crime can change a person’s life forever. PTSD can present itself in many different ways. Some may include depression, bad dreams, and frightening thoughts. Any symptoms can be diminished or even cured from medication or
I have so much respect for anyone who is serving or has served in the armed forces. Our military does more than just fight people over seas. They go around in our communities and clean stuff up and help people who are in hard times. The other reason that the military is important to me is because i am now a member of the military. Many people don 't get the brotherhood aspect of the military.
They had to put themselves in danger everyday, and they still kept us safe. They protected our country no matter what it took even if it meant they might never see there family again. So veterans should be remembered with respect and honored
People in society have marked their bodies with tattoos for thousands of years now. Tattooing has been a form of expression and many refer to it as a freedom of speech from the First Amendment. The utilization of these tattoos has often been as a form to express their spiritual beliefs, honor loved ones, creating a fashion statement, and to identify themselves. “It is estimated that in the United States, the number of people in the general population with tattoos range from 7 to 20 million” (Palermo, 2011, p. 507). Physical appearance and societies opinion varies widely depending on its presentation.
Without many of the brave men reenlisting we do not have as many people that can help to fight the evil power taking over our country. Many of the other men may not last much longer but I can do anything if it is to defend my country in this war. General Washington has much more than an inspiration to all of us and has given us the courage to go through these miserable and terrible time. With an extra set of hands I can help in this war with medical assistance to ensure that more men may fight for America. 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.
I chose this topic because everywhere I go, I see veterans, homeless and disabled, standing or slumped in a position of despair and hopelessness. These veterans are the results of fighting for our country and safety and now left in a positions of needing someone to fight for them. That should be the "TOP" priority of our Veteran Affairs Administration and reflected in their webpage. We now have so many veterans from so many different facets of life and ethnic backgrounds that the majority of them absolutely no support or hope. What in being done to encourage, support and direct our non famous and not rich veterans who find themselves in a "you 're served us well
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.
Topic Two: Effects of Deployment on Family i. Subtopic One: Effect on Spouses 1. A unit’s Family Readiness Group (FRG) can help to ease some of the stress during deployments by offering support and increased communication from the command to spouses (Hollingsworth, 2011). ii. Subtopic Two: Effect on
If his face was printed on a postage stamp, that stamp would not only represent General Brown, but also all the gallantry and sacrifice military personnel go through to make our nation safe and strong. As a military child, I have seen firsthand the hardship of far-away deployments and the physical and mental strength these soldiers have. General Brown represents that and more. For a service member to gain all the accolades he has, they must be dedicated. As a commander of the Special Operations Forces, he had improved the way they fought.
