"Brown," he says, "orderly room for you." Brown puts on his tunic and puttees and we look him over to see that he is properly dressed for his appearance before the colonel. He goes out. In the meantime our food comes around--a hunk of bread the size of a fist, a piece of cheese, a raw onion, and a mess-tin full of unsweetened tea. We are smoking after supper and Brown reappears.
The nation's economy and the stability of the nation is all depending on the firefight of the soldiers in the field today. Without the support of a whole nation, troops would be meaningless. As a supporting group, we must give them the utmost support and compassion, to wish they come back and reunite with family. In America, on Veterans Day it is a tradition to have parades, and little American flags to show our support. Some ways that we as a nation can support is by doing
Like discipline, leadership, perseverance, defence, and maturity. These aren't just boys and girls playing war with toy guys, these are men and women who are trained and take their job seriously. Yeah if they didn't I would think that they have no pride, but they do. Soldiers form special bonds with fellow soldier. It makes fighting in a war and knowing that you might die any day a little easier when youre
Our breakfasts, lunches and dinners are all on the healthy side. My father had a heart attack when he was 42 years old. The doctor said that it was because he was overweight, had a desk job, did not exercise, smoked cigarettes, and ate too much. My mother only put on his plate, servings of meat, vegetables, and potatoes, noodles, or spaghetti that was apportioned to the size of his hand. Dad being Dad then would go to the kitchen counter and put another dinner plate full of whatever entree my mother was serving for dinner.
The third poem is ‘The Soldier’; Brooke uses the message of England being the soldiers’ mother and the personification of England itself to raise pride and morality for the young men signing up for the army. Tone’s such as pride, enthusiasm and passion makes the poem convey an idealised view of war. It makes the readers want to be part of the war and fight for their ‘mother’ England. In ‘Peace’, Brooke uses language to give the impression of an
(Cranny p.55) Normally, when Britain went to war, Canada would automatically be at war as well, but King took a big step in not following orders from the mother country. Another accomplishment King succeeded in was demanding to be able to sign an international treaty without a British representative’s permission. (Cranny p.55) Once again, King did not follow the rules. He was supposed to receive a British representative’s signature for treaties, but he continued to push for greater Canadian independence. Secondly, The Balfour Report allowed Canada to receive autonomy and gave Canada equal status with Britain for creating laws.
Napoleon was successful for a variety of reasons until 1806. Motivation, Toulon, tactics, subordinates, ambition, meritocracy, Code Napoleon, Austerlitz and the enemy making mistakes were all very influential in his success. Motivation was a significant reason for Napoleon’s success as having a motivated army that fought hard for their leader was very useful in battle. He took time to speak to his soldiers asking them how their families were, he gave them medals if they deserved it, by doing this he gave them motivation and it also meant that others around them wanted to do better to receive praise themselves from Napoleon. He also gave speeches to the army to motivate them, which also developed the feeling of comradery within the ranks.
I began to comprehend what its inhabitants were about. In the morning, our breakfasts were put through the hole in the door, in small oblong-square tin pans, made to fit, and holding a pint of chocolate, with brown bread, and an iron spoon. When they called for the vessels again, I was green enough to return what bread I had left, but my comrade seized it, and said that I should lay that up for lunch or dinner. Soon after, he was let out to work at haying in a neighboring field, whither he went every day, and would not be back till noon; so he bade me good-day, saying that he doubted if he should see me again. When I came out of prison,—for some one interfered, and paid that tax,—I did not perceive that great changes had taken place on the common, such as he observed who went in a youth, and emerged a tottering and gray-headed man; and yet a change had to my eyes come over the scene,—the town, and State and country,—greater than any that mere time could effect.
Brooke's 'The Soldier' and Sassoon's 'Does it Matter' are vastly different from each other. First of all, they are written in different contexts and the messages are completely opposite. The former was written in 1914 when all young men in England were encouraged to join the army and it was considered an honour to die fighting for the country. Therefore, Brooke's poem shows an obvious patriotic attitude. ‘The Soldier’ was written when the war only started and people tended to believe that that 'the war's going to be over just this Christmas', so the tone of the poem is very optimistic.
While the Kahlor’s thinks it is great that the Americans go out and defend their country, they don’t thinks that the country does enough for those that return home, using their son as an example; the country didn’t offer an effective form of PTSD treatment, and they believe it was worth the risk. In the third text Nathaniel Fick thinks that serving the army is a kind of rite of passage, and serves to make you the man you are supposed to be. Sarah Palin uses a simple tactic to engage the reader as seen in the text “Why They Serve”. Sarah Palin starts out by using her firstborn son, Track, as an example, and in that way she appeals to the families in the United States. Reading through the article you notice that she keeps referring back to her son and the families, for example in line 9-10 she says “I was the mom of a young soldier being sent
