When i grow older I want to be a Aerospace Engineer because I have a thing for anything that involves anything that flies. Aerospace engineers work in industries to design and build aircraft,spacecraft,etc. They are primarily involved in manufacturing,design, and development. In order to be an aerospace engineer you will require a bachelor’s degree or anything related to aerospace engineering. It is important to understand the education or training requirements,skills or talents needed, salary and benefits offered, and the duties for a particular career when making this decision. (u.s. Bureau of Labor statistics.)
The United States of America has not always been the world superpower that it is today. The same goes for its Navy. In the first several years of existence, the United States Navy was not a formidable fighting force. The young nation was hesitant to invest in a navy for many reasons, one of them being to prevent provoking the world powers of the time, France and Britain. On top of that, navies were very expensive to build and required a significant amount of resources to maintain, which the U.S. did not have at the time. To say that the United States Navy was ill prepared for war would be a dramatic understatement. The U.S. had a total of fifteen ships in its entire naval fleet compared to the might of the Royal Navy which possessed over six hundred warships. Even with the odds stacked against the U.S., President Madison declared war on 18 JUN 1812. The lack of size and power of the navy at the time would make it extremely difficult to satisfy the needs of the newly founded nation.
It takes Honor to hold the Navy’s name and abide by their regulations, Courage to stand before others and lead them in front of hundreds, and to Commitment to push through and make your way from the bottom to the top. With all this comes responsibly in being able to admit and accept when you have made a mistake. I like having the sense of reinforcement and knowing I always have someone like our naval science instructors to teach us to learn from our errors and congratulate us on our achievements. Hence, one of my favorite things is being one of the Color Guard captains. I like being able to take that charge in leading and teaching others what I have learned and pass it down to them, hopefully to see them one day in my spot.
The USS constitution is very important to the history of the navy and to the United States in general. This ship was looked up to greatly, and it gave official hope and confidence to the U.S navy. The role of this ship is huge in fact, like the help it gave to the War of 1812. Firstly the idea was constructed that would lead to the development of the USS constitution was the Naval Armament Act. This was brought to the House of Representatives and the senate and they both passed it. This allowed the President of the United States to command six frigates, providing a Naval Armament. The USS Constitution firstly launched in 1797. The brave and important captains of the USS constitution were Samuel Nicholson, Silas Talbot,and
It’s Your Ship, by Capt. D. Michael Abrashoff is good read on understanding the basics of what he calls grassroots leadership he developed while a Commander in the Navy. He takes the reader through the journey of having a cutting-edge ship handed over him, while finding his own leadership lacking his expectations. While defying conventional Navy leadership tactics, Abrashoff created “a crew of confident and inspired problem-solvers eager to take the initiative and responsibility for their actions.” He ultimately succeeded in turning the USS Benfold into the “best damn ship in the Navy” in a
I served in the civil war, however, I was most famous for my quote at the Battle of Mobile Bay in 1864, where I served as a admiral leading across a field of torpedoes, saying “Damn the torpedoes! Full speed ahead!” After serving in the civil war in 1866, I was promoted to the rank of a four star admiral, which was new rank the United States created. I was the first person to serve as a rear, vice, and four star admiral. I died on August 14, 1870, and was buried at the Woodlawn Cemetery in Bronx New York, where my monument

Summary: In America, there is a debate of whether the U.S. Navy is too small or it is fine as it is. Right now, the United States of America have two hundred seventy three active ships sailing the seven seas. Ben Carson and Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker argue that the ships are severely low and that the number of ships is lowering down gradually coming closer to the number of ships the U.S. had in 1916 during World War One in which they had two hundred forty five ships in total. Although, some such as Peter Singer of the New America Foundation debate that the U.S. should be more focused on questions such as "what types of ships are they going to be and how are we going to pay for them?" rather than the question of how many. Despite the arguments
The Department of the Navy holds a long list of informal elements. From a particular use of language, to a diverse set of norms, to its use of long-held traditions and rituals. Rites of Passage are perhaps the most known of these informal elements. It can often be seen as a hot topic of discussion in leading news networks for apparent unethical behaviors. One of the most infamous and timeless traditions within the Department of the Navy is the initiation of the Chief Petty Officer, a feat many, if not all members wish to one day take part in. The 13th and Current Master Chief Petty Officer of the Navy, Mike Stevens had this to say about the enduring ritual (2015);
No major organizational changes to the Department of Defense will have to be made in order to fulfill the President’s memorandum. Although there will not be major changes, there will be interdepartmental streamlining in order to eliminate redundant positions and programs. The current structure of the DoD continues to operate the way that it should, and although the president and strategy may have changed the DoD will continue to operate with the current structure. The Department will also continue to contract numerous agencies and contractors to complete specific functions of the DoD.
