Fort Benning was a great place for me to begin my United States Army career. It served as a fine and descriptive example of what and how the United States Army creates its civilian trainees into community leaders of tomorrow. Fort Benning prides itself on their motto “FOLLOW ME” which carries such stalwart substance. This phrase exemplifies what a true Non-Commissioned Officer should strive to attain and continue, even after reaching that rank. Of the many important subjects in which I was educated in Basic Training, none stood out to me as much as Military Bearing.
My future career is to be a Marine Corps Force Reconnaissance Officer. In this career I believe my full potential can be achieved. My goal is to protect this nation and the people in it. I discovered this career when I was young and have not changed my mind since. I realized that some people have a calling to be a doctor, or priest but I believe my true calling is to join the armed forces.
Gunpowder Plot In this essay I am to write about a poem which focuses on someone’s experience. The title is ‘Gunpowder Plot’ by Vernon Scannel. In the poem the author tells us about someone’s experience in World War 2, then bonfire night 10 years later. The bonfire has been eagerly awaited by many people, but when the bangers are lit, Uncle John was forced to remember the war. All the explosions from the fireworks make him remember the explosions from the bombs and shells from the War.
Essay When I was in high school, I belonged to Army JROTC, and I was the first sergeant of my company. I led the drills, called cadence, conducted inspections, and I was up for promotion to captain the following school year, but unfortunately my schedule conflicted with other courses that I needed for college, and I was unable to continue in the program. However, Army JROTC was the first course that I ever took that gave me a sense of accomplishment, confidence in myself, and pride in the feeling that comes from being able to set goals, achieving them, and earning the respect of your peers while at the same time doing something in pursuance of a noble cause. I set a goal for myself to go to college and satisfy my educational objectives to prepare myself, so that one day I could prove worthy of becoming a leader in the United States Army. My life experiences and my strong desire to succeed coupled with an unrelenting work ethic and a strong sense of duty and commitment to my country, make me an excellent candidate for officership in the United States Army.
Ben is constantly trying to talk to her and develop a relationship; while Mrs. Robinson would rather they didn’t form any kind of emotional connection. This clearly showed the generation gap by having Ben, someone with his whole life ahead of him and is trying to figure out the world, juxtaposed against Mrs. Robinson, someone who has wasted her life and is trying to find some way of forgetting and even erasing her
I have learned very valuable information that will help me in school and life. I have been dreaming of being in the Army or Marines since I was born. I was told after completing ROTC and finishing officer’s school I would get the first four years of college free depending on what branch I wanted to join. I also wanted to join to make friends and be in a class that goes beyond the classroom. I have made many friends including Cadet/Private Sommermeyer and Cadet/Private Tatum.
This was my first time leaving my family and friends, adventuring into a life of the unknown. Arriving at booth camp l was among thousands of young men and women, whom were about to be Indoctrinated into a new life. I entered in as naive young recruit, but at the end of training l was now a sailor. Defending the United States and the free world was now part of my duties. Coming back to the United States made me realized how much l had missed home.
I plan on staying full time twenty to twenty-five years maybe more depending if I make it through the first twenty years, that’s my main goal. My next goal is after I retire from the Coast Guard i'm hoping to get a job in the marine sheriffs on the water or F.W.C (Florida Wildlife Commission). Those are my most important Goals. My Grandfather was in the Military and I’ve always wanted to follow into his footsteps and make everyone proud of me for my accomplishments. Its just not for them its for me as well, to give myself a bright future to look ahead on.
We are so concerned with what we have to say or what we are upset about that we don’t listen to the other persons input. When a problem arises in a relationship you have to solve it together. You can’t try and fix it yourself because it just won’t work. The lack of communication can also lead to other reasons relationships fail, like cheating. Cheating is a symptom of lack of respect and communication.
After reading the article, I came to the conclusion that we are not doing well at all when it comes to communicating with each other. I strongly believe that self-disclosure in our relationship is coming to an end, because of the lack of interest, and the unwillingness to listen. When it comes to self-disclosure in a relationship, I believe it is extremely important to be able to share intimate things, such as ideas, feelings, likes and dislikes, an many other things that you would share with your best friend. How things were in the office, with the kids, maybe a fight you had with your boss, anything that would help you feel better, and that you believe the person who cares about you and that you care about will be interested to hear even if it’s just to get it off you back. If someone can’t have self-disclosure in their relationship, I think it is very important to start having one.
