Tom Gilmore EngWr 300 Professor Hawley 4 March 2012 Journey of The Few, The Proud, The Marines The United States is in a constant state of security from threats, and the world is only getting more and more hostile towards us. America needs to know that there is a blanket of security being provided for them at all times. America needs to know that the United States Marine Corps is that blanket of security. The United States Marine Corps (USMC) is branch of the U.S. armed services (part of the US Navy), founded in 1775 and trained to operate on land and at sea. Men and women from all over the world try their abilities of strength and courage to see what it takes to be a true Marine.
United States Marine Corps By; Will Doerge April 1, 2009 Period 3+ “Semper Fi” The United States Marine Corp was founded November 10, 1775, in Tun Tavern in Philadelphia during the American Revolutionary War. But after the war the continental Marines were disbanded in April 1783. They were soon brought back in 1793 for the naval battle against France. (Marine Crops History Division) The United States Marine Corp is a branch of the U.S armed forces. They are recruited and trained for duties on sea and on shore.
He goes on to say in the second misperception, “college graduates are finding it harder to get good jobs with liberal arts degrees”, but “the recession has no differentiated among major fields of study in its impact” (192). Ungar believes students who focus on one particular field of study do not learn necessities such as writing and literary texts, and this puts them at a disadvantage when compared to a liberal arts graduate. While long-standing jobs, such as doctors and lawyers, will not become extinct soon, liberal arts graduates have a better chance of employment in most areas. 95% of employers surveyed would give hiring preference to graduates with skills to contribute in the workplace. 74% would recommend a liberal arts education to a young person they know today, so they will be prepared for success in today’s global economy.
Sabrina Tavernise from the New York Times says, “as a result, there is a growing generation gap, with younger Americans far less likely than older ones to have a family member who served.” (Tavernise) Americans are excessively self-satisfied, and think the government will always take care of their needs. Obviously not all Americans are like this, yet an excessively high rate are. Individuals need to figure out how to provide for themselves. I don't accept that everybody ought to be thrown into battle (just on a volunteer premise), however everybody should be required to go to basic training and serve for a year. It would definitely lower wrongdoing, expand development, make individuals more astute, fit, and more thankful.
If you had a discrepancy in your pay and you needed to get it fixed, I was the one that you came to in order to get that fixed. I was somewhat like the HR department in the civilian world. In the Navy from what I have seen perception plays a major role in the way things are handled. If you are perceived to be a great sailor even though you don’t accomplish what is required then perception wins out over everything else. If this perception leans in the other direction then you are not doing a good job.
People are becoming more accepting of the sexual orientation because most of the upcoming generation is being raised to respect everyone. “Gay schmay. If he has the guts to go through the things I did then good for him…”(Marine Vet qtd In Parker 12). Military personnel are worried that by allowing gays to serve will decrease the number of people being recruited and mess up the consistency of units. Some government officials believe that the only reason to repeal “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” will be to improve military effectiveness.
Rather than making that general statement, say something like, “He got a promotion based on his assistant’s detailed reports, but then—despite the company’s record profits—denied that assistant even routine cost-of-living raises.” 6. Don’t waste words. Garner offers ways to trim wordy passages. Delete prepositions, especially “of.” For example, change April of 2013 to April 2013. Replace words ending in “ion” with verbs; Change “provided protection” to “protected.” Get rid of filler like “in terms of.” 7.
When drafted, you will be able to meet people from all social economic statuses. It would not matter if you are an attorney, a waitress, a factory worker, or even a homeless person. A sense of great influences and patriotism is given when you do not have a choice. By having a choice today most of our youth have no respect for our veterans or patriotism for this great nation. The draft will lessen the effect of PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder) on our troops.
Taven Parker Sociology 142 ID# 005350798 They stole our jobs! “‘Let’s make sure people are educated so they can fill the jobs of the 21st century’” (President Bush, “That Good Education Might Not Be Enough”, Gosselin, pg 1). To a young, naïve individual that doesn’t understand the ways of the world quite yet, this might sound like a promising statement. Let us forget about the fact that companies and corporations want to make more money, so they outsource their working positions to other countries so they can pay them less for the same job. Let us forget about billions of dollars that American companies save by paying foreign wages rather than our minimum wage.
These people will get to contribute to society by paying higher taxes to support this fancy new health care act that helps those who find working extremely uninteresting. As you can see, new standards for a bright future is doing nothing at all and being able to live off the government. I don’t know about you, but I think my new calling is going to be collecting all the money the government has to offer me. Forget being a doctor, where you will go through countless years of college, have an overwhelming number of patients and get paid less. Or maybe I will go into pharmacy, many years of schooling for what?
