Davis Sr. taught me many other people many valuable lessons. One of these lessons is no matter what color or race you are that is not going to stop you from what you want to do in life or just do everyday things.The thing that surprised me most was that he made his way all the way up to the top when he started at rock bottom. Davis has affected my life by,showing me anything is possible and if you work hard enough you can do anything. I have learned many things from Benjamin O. Sr. he was a very brave, important, and strong figure to look up to. Davis was a very important man in military history, Black history, and U.S
My most meaningful military achievement and how it relates to my field of study and future goals. My most meaningful achievement was joining the Army, deploying in defense of our nation to Afghanistan and being recognized for the positive impact I created on my fellow soldiers, NATO Allies and Afghan nationals. I used the skills I was acquiring while attending my university to influence my unit’s operations and help those in need. A soldier duty is always to his mission and nation, still, while deployed I felt the calling in my heart to help those in need. Together with a minute group of friends, I set up a plan to transform my wish into real actions.
The morning of Tuesday September 11, 2011 is one of the biggest tradgies of all time. On this specific day four airlines were hijacked by an Islamic group that goes by the name al-Qaeda. The attacks took the lives of 2,996 innocent people, injured nearly 6,000 people, and caused at least $10 billion in infracture and property damage. These attacks, also known as the 9/11 attacks, will forever be remebered as one of the most horrific days for so many people around this world. Initally, al-Qaeda considered targeting nuclear power plants on 9/11, but decided to go against it because they feared it would get too out of control.
Being out in combat have shown me the kind of heart within a person the Army need, the kind of fight within an individual that the army need, and the characteristics in which makes up a US Army personnel. Along with being deployed some of my learned skills were acquired when I was assigned as a Fury FSC retention NCO two years ago, and my job was to educate soldiers about what they qualified for and other entitlements. Even though the soldier already knew the skills needed in the Army and had knowledge of the Army, I still had to persuade individuals to why they should reenlist. This required some craftiness on my part as some of these soldiers needed to hear something that they haven't heard
Vietnam War- persuasive essay The grief accompanied with war is one that never really ends. The Vietnam War is a vivid example of this claim. The 20th century gave away thirty years of its time to the war which killed millions of people, thousands of soldiers and devastated many homes in one go. While the interests of a country are invested in the war, there are also the people who suffer at the cost of these interests. Not only did the Vietnamese soldiers and people suffer from the atrocities and menace caused by war, there were the American soldiers and their families back home which were never able to escape the immense heartache followed by it.
planes, guns, and heavy artillery out of the battle, in order to hopefully save some of Hue. However, when the war started getting very serious, South Vietnam gave us permission to start bombing, so I gave the go ahead. I am really hopeful that we will be able to rebuild the city of Hue up back to it’s prior glory. I am very sad for South Vietnam, being that a lot of their precious treasures were destroyed in all of the fighting. Eventually, after we had been fighting for four weeks, the Communists, North Vietnam had retreated.
Larry experienced the importance of protecting and defending the bunkers during the war, this being his first experience being stationed.This task showed him what it ment to be a soldier. Getting the vital job of making sure the bunkers were safe for not only him but for other soldiers as well taught. While every military story is very different and interesting to see how one envolves from when they first joined to how they endedesrFor Larry being in the military helped shape him into who he is today, He shared how it helped him grow up. Larry Hall came back from the military sure of the next steps in his life, that he was ready for a family knew he wanted a family. After the military everyone's lives go in different directions and whatever path a vetern ends up on they will always carry with them the lessons they were taught, and that is an irreplacable vaule.
For many years there have been military conflicts in the Middle East, between the countries of the Middle East and sometimes between them and outside superpowers. They have endured these conflicts because their society is a very basic technologically lacking civilization. Because of their weaker standpoint, especially against countries like America or Britain, they have had to resort to guerilla warfare to be able to stand a fighting chance against these superpowers. This leads to the collateral damage played on the news and the deaths of U.S. military personnel. This makes the war seem like a hopeless standstill where no one side is winning which is similar to another American conflict that ended terribly, the Vietnam War.
The Weimar’s military leadership was mostly composed of conservatives who did not support the new Republic. This was already a negative start. How could soldiers who were against the republic swear to protect it? The biggest problem of the army oath was that it let anyone who was President in direct control of the armed forces. This meant that if someone with bad intentions came to power, he had under his control, the whole military.Of course this worse-case scenario came
There is a quote that Plato once said to his students; “Only the dead have seen the end of war.” (Plato, goodreads.com). This quote tells us that there are always sacrifices to be made in war. People suffer and die, and that is a shameless fact. It is, however, unbefitting of someone to die or suffer because of someone else’s actions. In fact, the story “The Golden Kite, the Silver Wind” just so happens to be a metaphor for the Cold War, which took place between 1947 and 1991 when America and Russia collided.
First month of Warrant Officer Basic Course The role of the military officer today is very complex, challenging, and very rewarding. The transition into Warrant Officer Basic Course (WOBC) has displayed a few of those characteristics. Upon arrival to the WOBC we as newly appointed Warrant Officers were welcomed with open arms. Not only was the students eager to get started and to begin learning on how to become future 131As but the instructors were as eager to coach, influence and direct the class in the direction needed not only becoming newly certified 131A but to become the future of the 131A cohort. During our first few weeks at WOBC we continued to get acclimated with the new surroundings of Fort Sill and continued to get accustomed to the transition from being enlisted to the officer branch.
I have been stationed at both Fort Campbell, Tennesee and Fort Benning Gerorgia. As an NCO, I was held accountable for ensuring that there were adequate training aids to train soldiers so that the unit can maintain proficiency in certain areas. While many soldiers have creative ways of coming up with training aids, there are available resources at many Army instillations that provide suitable tools to assist in your training. Many soldiers are unaware of these resources, which was evident in my journey to find these assets. Observation: The Training Support Center (TSC) is a great place that provides training aids to support units in all their training activities; however, they are not well know across Army instillations.
I have learned during the last two weeks, from working on finishing up our power point presentation. It is interesting to see how previously experiences acquired from our interaction with the CCF team, literature review, and data analysis have had a positive impact on preparing the presentation. What was unclear at the beginning, was taking form, little by little until we had our final result, and meet our project objectives. 2. What difference has the learning made in my intellectual, personal, and ethical development?
In other words, the US Congress determines how many Soldier, as known as end-strength, are needed in the USAR based on real world missions, future possible missions, and budget requirements. There are several organizations which contribute to the accomplished of the USAR end-strength; however, ARCD has the overall burden of ensuring the end of the year (EOY) end-strength is accomplished. How does ARCD accomplish their mission of EOY end-strength success? ARCD primarily accomplishes their mission by retaining Soldier which are already in the USAR. This is an extremely important function of ARCD because the US Government has invested several thousands of dollars into each Soldier for training, incentives, and readiness.
Last 2 months, I have learned a lot of stuff that I was not familiar with. I never learned how to think critically and did not know about elements of thought. I am glad I got an opportunity to attend the Command and General Staff Officer Course because I got to meet a lot of people with different branch, background and experiences. More importantly, I got to learn from others with a lot of experience and also, I get to share my knowledge and experience. The CGSOC made me think differently compare to prior to the attendance.
