Some families decide that they cannot deal with the difficulties of having their spouse gone, or they cannot cope with the changes that have occurred in the spouse due to combat deployment. This can ultimately lead to divorce and breakup of the family structure. While there have been many programs put in place to assist the soldiers in coping with the return to
It can be very hard sometimes to take classes because of the military. It is a 24/7 job and a lot of times we get called in to do something while were in class, but we cannot let this deter us from bettering ourselves through education. Another question that many people ask is “why is education important to us?” especially those of us in the military. I know many people would say, “Well you joined the military so you wouldn’t have to go to school.” That is not entirely true. There are a few individuals who join the military to stay away from school but education should be an important step in everybody’s life path.
Former president, Bill Clinton, temporarily resolved the issue of gays in the military with his "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy. While many oppose gays being drafted out of moral concern of forcing our nation's men to serve with gays, others would view it as unfair for gays not to have to bear the "burden" of serving in the army because of their sexual orientation, stated by Eric Naing of the Independent Daily News of Illinois. Additionally, given the increasing acceptance of homosexuality, in the case of a draft, many straight males would claim to be gay to avoid service. Draft dodging would take on a new meaning. Now all draft dodgers would have to do is claim to be homosexual to avoid military service.
I was not sure if that civilian party was congress leaders or actual civilians that did not understand the role of the military during wartime and peacetime. The further I read into the civil-military conflict, I began to understand that the civilians did not know that the military did much more than just fight wars but to build roads and yet to explore and expand the western front. I agree that the relation between civilian leaders and military leaders in crucial to be able to prepare the military for future wars that may arise. Even though the military just came out of a war doesn’t mean they should
I don’t know why someone risk going to prison and not to defend his or her country. Going to the war doesn’t mean you get to see your family again because you could die before you get to come back home but at least you died for something that means so much for millions of people. Going to war is just the right thing to do because by doing so you maintain the freedom of your country for the next generation. By doing so you gain the respect of your country by defending its honor. The benefits of going to war are also not bad.
Love throughout the household A single parent home has some obvious disadvantages that could have a negative impact on anyone that is a member of that household. Children in the household should grow up with both a mother and a father. When kids grow up with single parents they tend to spend more time alone, which could allow them to engage in irresponsible behavior. A single parent will not be as involved in the children’s life as much because of work, or other responsibilities. A married couple could divide those responsibilities and schedule their work hours so that the kids hardly spend time alone.
The Military Draft: Unfair and Unnecessary The freedom to choose a life served in the armed forces is a right given to the American people by its government. A draft ruins the benefits of an all volunteer military , is against life ownership principles, and only adds more numbers to the troops we have stationed all over the world protecting countries other than our own. An all volunteer military ensures that the soldiers we train, support, and trust with our lives and the lives of other; want to serve and protect. Driven by patriotism, and faith, these soldiers have a state of mind that cannot be forced. Being away from home, family, and almost every luxury is both physically and emotionally taxing, having the courage to do this makes being away easier, being told by a piece of paper that you are leaving for a few months to a few years to a location you don’t know, is terrifying.
Military Denied Access to Teens Some schools believe that the military should not target teens in high school because they are too young and that they should try to go to college first. They say the military life is not well suited for young teens still in high school or fresh out of school. “Recruiters are targeting certain teens” (Ayers 87.8). The schools that military recruiters do have full access to teens are “offering higher bonuses and shortened tours of duty,” just so the teen can think about the military. (Ayers 87.8) Wealthy Kids Don’t Enlist The reason wealthy kids do not enlist is that they can afford to go to college and not have to worry about the military paying for it.
I do believe that although it would be a benefit for most eighteen year olds, it shouldn’t be the law to enroll. Some people might disagree with my thinking, stating, that it would if fact keep young people off the streets and teach them responsibility, but what if the eighteen year old was handicapped and couldn’t take physical and mental pressure? Would he be breaking the law? Also, unfortunately, some eighteen year olds today do not love their country and it would not be good if they were in the army. Do we want every eighteen year old in the army, fighting for our country?
This is a bad choice because later on she won’t have a well-paid job and that leads to not being able to afford to raise her child. Therefore the child will have a better life with the adoptive parents. There are lots of desperate couples that want to have a family, but are unable to because they have health problems, genetic or age related issues. Some of these health problems are due to infertility. Some parents can’t have children because they don’t want to pass on a genetic related disease they have or one of their other children has.
