When Doherty spoke to our class he said, “Replacements couldn’t keep up with casualties.” This problem led to another problem. Men that began training toward the end of the war would have their basic training rushed or cut short. When Terry spoke to our class he said, “Boot-camp changed from 12 weeks to 8. We were beat down but never got built back up.” It seems that our troops struggled to find an effective way to fight the guerilla warfare in Vietnam, “Walked around in circles. No strategy.”(Doherty) He also wrote in his book, “I was not going to try to win the war.
Playing football in Pop Warner and in middle school were jus stepping-stones to what I wanted to accomplish in high school. Freshman year we finished 10-0 and I was sure that my sophomore year was going to be “my year.” The next season came around the corner and I was not on the field rather I was on the sidelines. A lot of people told me “ Don’t worry Blake your time will come.” I could have looked at things differently but the one thing I hate more than anything is watching someone else play quarterback. The season went on and I would clean up the blowout games and things most backups did. After the season I decided I had had enough.
Soe Tun English 103 Professor: Lucero Date: November 7, 2014 Student Veteran No matter who you are, where you’re from, what your job, and how old are you, every single person in the universe has the right to persuade the education as they wish. As the war of Iraq ended and budget cutting for military spending, thousands of newly discharged soldiers are thinking about what to do next. Most of the soldiers, Marines, Airmen, and Sailors joined the military before their 21st birthday, and it’s often the only job they’ve ever held. So, most of them are deciding to go back to school for their education. In the article of “The veterans are coming!
My son Kaleb was born May 24 2008, and from that moment on I wanted to give him everything he deserves. I tried to go back to college right after my son was born, but I had no idea what I wanted to do for my future and taking care of Kaleb wasn't cheap. I was constantly working to pay for the expenses of Kaleb, while paying for the rest of the expenses I had. Finally four years later, I made the best decision I could for my family and that was going back to school. One of the many reasons why I came back was that I did not was to continue being in a factory the rest of my life.
Part 1 At one point in high school my grades were below par which didn’t really make my parents happy. They decided to enroll me into a tuition center where may other kids take tuitions during the school holiday. One week in, I didn’t have a single friend, probably because I’ve always been a really shy person. I sat outside reading before my morning class. I looked up and noticed this girl was moving towards me, she engaged into conversation with me and then told me she thought I was real good looking and that definitely was an ego booster, she then suddenly left and I never saw her again because that was my last summer school class.
For many years I was scared to go to college because I thought I wasn’t college material. Hearing Capitan Mark Kelly speak about being an underachiever, and a “not so great” student really helped me see that light at the end of the tunnel. When final build up the courage with in myself, I enrolled into San Jacinto College. The only thing that stood in the way was that standardize test. I had to take the entry exam after five years of not being in school.
My name is sam , and I feel lucky to say that I am currently studying my passion of becoming a veterinary technician. I was 19 years old when I first started looking for classes in my area that met my criteria and after a frustrating search I thought there was nothing! Then I found Penn Foster, a school that allows me to stay home, study and also go to work and be with family and friends. I wasn’t sure that online school was the best choice for me but I wasn’t ready to move away from my family and friends just yet. The only veterinary technician school was five hours from home and I did not have the money to move away.
At the time I was not really sure because I was afraid of not making the team. So when I got to the tenth grade I decided to try out for the junior varsity basketball team. Making the basketball team was a big obstacle in my life that I had to overcome. Before tryouts began, the coach recommended I go to workouts to get in shape. Basketball workouts lasted about two weeks.
I was tested once during the year, but there was some people that were tested up to four times, and if I may note, these were supposed to be random drug tests… there wasn’t anything random about them. I currently had been working at Walgreens Drug Store for almost a year, and had just get a job at Komatsu Mining Corporation where I was going to co-op my senior year. I had just recently passed the drug screen for Komatsu and just put in my two weeks at Walgreens before I left to go to Arizona for a family vacation, and then I would just be working at Komatsu when I got
My eleventh grade year was also a disaster because of the struggle of passing my biology state test and I was really distracted and just wanted to go back to the alternative school but my mom and the principle would not send me back. My senior year I transferred to Christ Missionary and Industrial high school (college) the year flew by but I really enjoyed myself there. Now I am still here at CM&I , I supposed to be a summer graduate if everything goes as planned. Once I finish high school I plan on signing up for the air
