The implications of this on the services are far reaching due to the fact there is the ever current risk to the lives of serving soldiers who are in combat or an area of global instability. They may be seriously killed or injured by the enemy, by civilians who resent the military presence or even by friendly fire. There is also a huge impact on the family of military personnel who may experience extreme stress or anxiety about the welfare of their loved one.

John majors government came into office after the downfall of Margret Thatcher, which ultimately created divisions within the party. Not only did the party suffer from the internal conflict but also faced the problems of the recession after the ‘Lawson boom’. In order to stabilise the economy he joined the ERM getting a good deal but ultimately resulting in ‘black Wednesday’ causing Major to raise interest rates to 15%. This was political suicide and he soon lost the support of the press we had once relied so much on to get re-elected in 1992. The housing market also plummeted leading to negative equity, which the majority of the working class could not afford resulting in the repossession of their houses combined with the drastic increase in unemployment Britain was in a mess.
Shifting Mindsets of War As is common knowledge in present day, war has transformative effects. Many soldiers come back from fighting with PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) due to the horrendous sights and actions occurring on a daily basis. Ford Madox Ford illustrates this phenomena by constructing a significant character transformation caused by the war in No More Parades through Tietjens, as he becomes more open emotionally, and loses a bit of the cold reservation he is known and prided for as an English Tory. Prior to the war, flashbacks and reflection show that Christopher Tietjens had been a very reserved character. For example even the personal matter of caring for his sick child was done with a cold lack of emotion: “He had taken the responsibility.
As the United States shifted its attention to combat operations. The priorities concentrated on battle drills, physical conditioning and as time went on the military started promoting people quicker to keep Soldiers in the ranks and prevent them from ETSing from the military. This was to keep leaders, good or bad in the ranks. Basic Training, AIT, and NCOES courses lowered the standards to keep the flow of Soldiers coming into the army and graduation rates at an all-time high. This caused a ripple effect in the army as we promoted inexperienced Soldiers to Sergeant, these leaders were now training new Soldiers, this led to Soldiers not getting the proper leadership and not conducting inspections and other basic soldiering skills like haircuts, cleanliness & serviceability of the uniform and ensuring that good basic discipline was being upheld at all levels.
When a soldier is suffering from PTSD he may experience rage, depression, flashbacks, emotional numbness, and hyper vigilance. They can experience the inability to stop believing that they are in battle during everyday life. Effects like these can seriously jeopardize their family life. As one former soldier has said in the article, “It’s almost like your family has its own form of PTSD just from being around you every
Thе later war placed severe strains оn thе National Guard because troop shortages required many Guard troops tо serve past their discharge dates. This practice, called stop loss, along wіth quick rotations thаt put units back into action after only а brief time at home, had а negative impact оn recruiting аnd retention rates.

With the majority of the affected families taking an active roll in the caring for Alzheimer’s patients it seems that the responsibilities of caring for a family member of a family of orientation while juggling the responsibilities of being a member of a family of procreation and other constraints such as work puts a strain on the caretaker no matter what the sex or gender of the caretaker may be. Alzheimer’s forces a family into a situation they did not willingly ask for and are made to adapt one way or another to the situation because refusal to do so can severely threaten the family structure. The length of the illness causes emotional strains along with physical and financial costs, which can intensify the family’s feeling of abandonment and loss. Having had a family member ravaged by this disease I am aware of the difficulties that families incur when dealing with the struggles brought on by Alzheimer’s and feel that more research and time need to be devoted to the issue. The issues that arise affect not only the family system but, especially with the expected growth of those diagnosed with the disease, society as a whole.
For more than a decade before the outbreak of the American Revolution in 1775, tensions had been building between colonists and the British authorities. American colonists were angered by the actions of the British government because these measures were directed against the interest of the colonists.

The Fairy Tale In his essay, “The End of Courtship,” Leon R. Kass claims that “people on both the left and right have come to regard the breakup of marriage as a leading cause of neglect, indeed, of the psychic and moral maiming, of America’s children”(224). The high divorce rates in our society are staggering and recognizable; yet we can point out the problem but can’t seem to provide a solution. There are several “deal breakers” in a marriage with many being obvious and some not so obvious; however the relationship problems people face today are no different then what couples faced in the past when divorce was rare and vows of lifetime commitments and family values were worth fighting for. The question we must ask ourselves is
