While conducting operations in Da Nang, Hue City, and Khe Sanh, battles fought and won, through shoulder high brush, and hidden spider holes, which were well camouflaged, made warfare against the North Vietnamese Army strenuous. The gruesome encounters concluded with 57 Medals of Honor earned by Marines for their exceptional engagements. Despite the Vietnam War’s unpopularity with Americans. Its acceptance was of no importance because the men, who showed the amount of bravery and character, fought and displayed actions that would eventually earn them such a distinguishable award. These men are now heroes that we recognize in history.
Sadly in the end, he died right beside half of his Regiment, but I’m sure that he also died with pride and dignity. The movie “Glory” taught me that to be a leader, you will have to endure some struggles and make sacrifices; it’s not about you, it’s about your followers and putting them ahead of you. Sometimes this may also involve risks and you may also have to do things that are out of your character. Colonel Shaw had to fight to take care of his Regiment, but he didn’t give up; he stood strong. It was nice to see that with honestly comes respect and with respect comes loyalty.
Many Marines have given up their lives in order to protect one another and defeat the enemy. This story teaches today’s Marines how to fight like Marines as well as why this service holds so many honors. The never say die attitude of every man on that hill is proof why the Marines are America’s elite, because they can take every hardship that God and the world can throw at them and still never give up. The Marines in this book are the kind of fighters we should all try to be. Courage is one of the main traits than shows the most throughout this story.

That is, the testimonies from Dawson, Downey, and Col. Nathan R. Jessep all shared the order of the Code Red issued to Private First Class William Santiago. Dawson and Downey say they executed the Code Red because they were merely following orders, an order given by Col. Jessep via Lt. Jonathan Kendrick. Col. Jessep admitted to ordering the Code Red on Santiago because “Santiago was a substandard Marine” (A Few Good Men, 1992), and as such, proved to be a liability to Second Platoon Delta, Rifle Security Company Windward. As Jessep states, “Santiago’s death, while tragic, probably saved lives” (A Few Good Men, 1992), following the precept of sacrificing a finger for the sake of the hand. Kaffee, recognizing Jessep’s absolutist mindset, says that “[Jessep’s men] follow orders.
Randall Hansen Comm. Artists W-1 Critic Review: Saving Private Ryan Saving Private Ryan may be just one of the most amazing action-drama films I have ever seen. It provides beautiful cinematography, great perspective, and terrific acting, lead by none other than Tom Hanks. I love the reality of the action in the movie and how I really felt the emotion of everything happening around the group of soldiers that we are focused on. Like all movies there is a focus, and the group of soldiers, mainly Tom Hanks’ character, are whose footsteps we follow through throughout the movie.
