In the past, marine NCO’s had the responsibility to protect and bring home his fellow marines. Today they are doing the same thing over in Iraq and Afghanistan. That commitment has never changed once in the marine corp. The marine NCO’s are the embodiment of the Marine Corps’ core values because without them we would have no history or traditions. The core values are the basic of every marine; they are embedded in us from the first day of boot camp till we die.
The bond is made by decades of rigorous training, politics, etc. thta make them different. In the Marines, recruit training is the genesis of the enduring sense of brotherhood that characterizes the Corps. New recruits are told they start that " A Marine Believes- in his God, in his Country, in his Corps, in his buddies and himself." All the events and obstacles that Marines go through is not done individually but with team work.
His family was the most significant one. He came from a family of military leaders that influenced him to get the most out of what he could and seek a career in the military. His mother was a big influence in his life. She always kept a close eye on him in the earlier stages of his life. She cared about him and believed of what he was capable to do in his life so much that even followed him to West Point when he was a cadet, and lived there so she could be close to him.
He has been serving for 18 years from the moment he graduated high school. He is one of the many who fight for what we believe in, our right to freedom. Veterans Day is a big thanks to all those men who gave their life and are risking their lives so we can live the way we live now. They are the brave hearted who will never die but live in our minds and in our
Stephen Richardson Mrs. Farr English Composition 101 6 December 2012 United States Armed Forces The United States Armed Forces are the United States’ Department of Defense that has served and protected this country since the birth of America in 1775. The United States has one of the largest known military in the world today with almost three million people serving actively and in the reserves. The military is divided into four main branches in which all have different responsibilities and locations. The United States Military can be classified into four different branches: Army, Navy, Air Force, and Marines. The first and main branch of the United States Armed Forces is the U.S. Army.
While I agree with General Dempsey’s view on how to form the Army into a “Profession of Arms,” I don’t think today’s Army is quite there yet. I think The Army is going in the right direction but it will take time to change the culture. We need to understand that it is virtually impossible for all Soldiers to be professionals based on experience and expertise alone. We need to understand that not all Soldiers join today for honor, tradition, and/or wanting to be a part of a team. Soldiers are joining the military more and more to have a secure job with benefits for themselves and their family members.
Respect to NCO’s Displaying the proper courtesy and respect to Non-Commissioned Officers and Officers alike is a key component to being a Soldier in the United States Army. Throughout history, within every single military force, there has always been rank structure and discipline. Rank structure was, and still is, instilled in the military for many reasons; to ensure tasks are completed, orders from officers are followed, and communication within the ranks is evident and clear. To show disrespect and to act discourteous towards senior ranking personnel goes against tradition, regulation, and honor. Traditionally, respecting seniors was critical throughout military forces though history.
Its their job to uphold and make sure the soliders under them are held to the standard. I understand why accountability is such a huge deal in the military. Not being where u should be can cuz others to work harder to pick up the the extra work that you should be doing. There could be something going on at the unit that all soliders need to attend and missing one person could cause others to suffer. Or like the incident that happen back in Nov. 2009 on ft. hood.
Especially in the military world knowing where your gear is at is very essential to mission accomplishment. That’s why in the military we do so many sl-3 and gear inventories. Now in my MOS accountability of your gear is very important. Because if you are missing like a high power amplifier, or a modem, you cannot complete the mission. If you cannot complete the mission then communications cannot go up and support all the troops out there on the front lines.
