After the war, they got back to daily life, and contributed to make the country’s most powerful peacetime economy. They also recorded highest marriage rate and birth rate, and became parents of the Baby Boomers. This generation has accomplished a lot throughout their lifetime, but never showed it off.

They face many challenges but still continue their journey. The saddest thing is that there are some mothers who do not care about what is their children going through in order to go to America.

However, when the war occurred, the kids at Kerry Corner signed up to participate in the war, and went overseas; nobody expected it before the war, because people at Kerry Corner were not familiar with traveling the world. Even during the war, young men from Kerry Corner were together, and worried each other fondly. Their families in the States hoped in one mind that their kids could come back safely.

However, it is argued that military service builds
Socialization is the process where individuals acquire the language, social skills, and values to conform to the norms of a specific society or culture. Socialization is shown many times throughout GI Jane. Some examples are: Lt. O’Neil’s boyfriend, who is also a military member, does not support her and feel that she should attempt the impossible as she is a woman. He would represent both a family or peer agent in this movie. When she arrives the Commanding Officer greets her and attempts to steady or pull the chair out for her as that is a common gesture to do for women.
Lourdes, Enrique’s mother, loved her children as every mother does and did anything in her power to provide for them even if it meant to travel 1,619 miles into a foreign country. Many parents like Lourdes have left their entire families for job opportunities and risk their lives through the dangerous journey but they have the hope and motivation because of love— love for their sons and daughters. Even Enrique found himself doing the same for his soon-to-be-born baby which was one of the components that made him persevere in his
Being exposed to these different types of people has prepared me for relations with people unlike me in the future. I believe that my experiences with those of different cultures will lead me to be a successful cadet at the Academy. When my family moved to a post in the year of 2011, my environment drastically changed. The military post of West Point introduced me to new friends of many religions, races and cultures. My fellow sixth graders taught me that everyone was unique and that every culture was special.
When his mom would pick him up you could tell she was on something or just came off the “high” from whatever drug she was taking at that point.

Throughout the years thousands of soldiers have sacrificed their lives to protect the american people. Everyday people make sacrifices, they may not sacrifice their lives, but they have sacrificed their time, money and comfort. People make all sorts of sacrifices.

I Will Re-enlist The Revolutionary War caused horrible and wounding disaster and major death, sorrow, and mourning to the soldiers and many families along with them. From 1777-1778 near Pennsylvania, the conditions at Valley Forge are worsening by the day and many are thinking they can not last another month not even another day in this misery. My nine month enlistment is almost up and all I am asking myself is whether I should re-enlist. Quitting would bring my family at ease and I wouldn’t have to worry about my family getting hurt.
Maj. Chris Faris talked about was the affect that war had on his and his daughter’s relationship. The talk he had with his daughter allowed him to see the pain and hurt that comes from him being away at performing his military duty. His daughter, now 118 years old, reminded him of the last time he was home for her birthday, which at that time she was 10 years old. Each time he was only home for 2 months at a time; this made it difficult for him to have a positive relationship with his wife and children.
My mother was also homeless in another part of the state and it was already difficult to maintain contact with her, so moving to a random location in the world for eighteen months would mean I might not be able to talk to her at all. And to add to all that, I was in the beginning of a romantic relationship with one of my best friends; would he be there when I got back? Would I be missing out on a huge opportunity by staying home, or missing out on a great man by
