As a matter of fact most things that have to do with the military are unknown to the public. But that is the case with most things in life, if it doesn’t effect you then don’t know much about it. The FRG is a place that a specific group of families that are going through similar experiences during a specific time period can come together and feel welcomed, a sense of belonging and a place to unleash your troubles upon and have the members of the group completely understand because they are experiencing the same things. The military especially the Army has changed its ways of doing things through the years. They use to say “If we wanted you to have a family we would have issues you one.” But now they have realized the importance of a family is to the soldier and their well being while their fighting for our country.
A Leader must always care above all else I had only heard of good army leadership, but I had never met or experienced it up close and personnel. His name was Sergeant First Class Timothy Crutchfield, and he was my new boss here for the next three years. He cared for Soldiers, but he would tell you it was his job. His job showed through all that he said and did; he was an Army leader. He taught that sometimes leadership has to be personnel to be effective, that we should never give up on those who we have been given to train and lead, and that leader’s must supervisor their subordinates to show that they care for their well-being as well as that of the countries, it is our mission.
There are but three choices for a soldier: to die in battle, to win as an anonymous hero together with thousands of his friends or to lose as a forgotten life. He has endured enough of a mournful and private life so never break a soldier’s heart. If there hadn’t been the selfless and courageous people who chose not to be draft dodgers, there wouldn’t be the United States of America, in which we live with a happy family, say hello to the heroic trash collector every Monday morning in a peaceful neighborhood and go to school studying American Literature. Yes, America still has heroes. Our duty is to be aware of all the heroes around us and show them appreciation.
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.
Paul’s analogy between minting coins and the effect of the war on veteran soldiers is a significant event. He explains in a very true manner how he and his friends establish close bonds that far surpass any civilian or ‘peacetime’ friendship. However, those bonds have been established through living through events no person should, and have been somewhat forced, seeing as they have had to stand together after being drafted into the war and stuck
Chloe’ Ford Ashley Million October 24, 2011 The United States Marine Corp Without the United States Marine Corp, where would America be today? Marines not only leave all civilian life behind for their country but also for your life, safety, rights, and freedom. America would not be standing without the dedication of the brave men and women in the Marine Corp. The United States Marine Corp has affected America tremendously and continues to every day. They protect our lives, way of living, and the strong nation of America.
We may not agree on the hows and the whys, but I am so thankful for our young men and women of many generations that have fought and continue to fight to protect our nations’ independence and to prevent human suffering around the world. I am proud to be an American because as a nation, we care. We have heroes big and small; everyday there are random acts of kindness that we will never know about. We care about our neighbors, we care about
A police officer is a person who puts their life in danger everyday as a duty to the citizen of their neighborhood. They should be respected, honored, and commended for their efforts in ensuring our security. Now, what actions should we as citizens take, if that very same person is the one invading and conflicting our safety? Police brutality has been a non going issue for many years, and as the very people they are sought out to shelter, it is time we make sure the job gets done. For a long time, silence has been the only option and today my essay today is going to be the voice for every victim.

Haley Reed Reed 1 English IV Dual Enrollment Ms. Laden March 21, 2012 The Never-Ending War The American Soldier can be anyone: someone’s parent, school teacher, cousin, child, grandchild, best friend, husband, wife, neighbor, co-worker, peer, former class-mate, mentor, fellow church member, or just that nice person that waved on the street. Over the centuries men and women who are somebody’s loved one have risked and often given their lives to protect America and its people. Generally, society tends to forget that every single person that dies in wartime is someone’s hero, someone’s half that makes a whole and someone’s entire world. With the mass amount of causalities from the Afghanistan War, it is not easy to grasp how tragic
