The Importance of Following Orders. Why is it important to follow orders and instructions? From a military standpoint the difference can mean life or death for a soldier. On the civilian side it can mean the loss of your job, loss of position, or loss of pay. There are many factors that play into each individual scenario. No two events are ever the same and the outcome can range from a verbal reprimand to the death of the individual.
Thank you for your service to our country and keeping us safe. When I was growing up, I recall my father chatting about his stories when he served in the Navy. He would seriously crack me up because he could recite a lot of the information like
As a Non-Commissioned Officer or NCO in the United States Army National Guard I work with many teams from the lowest level of squad to company and battalion levels. As a Drill Sergeant I worked with a team or Drills to instruct and mold future soldiers. We where also expected to operate independently with very little supervision from upper leadership. We instructed on many different things such as basic Army tasks and skills. As a Soldier we are expected to be managers and take care of the soldiers under us, as a team leader in Afghanistan I took care of three Soldiers under me. I was part of a route Clearance Patrol or RCP team that went out early in the morning and cleared major roads of road bombs and other blockages. In the army working together as a team or individually was very important and lives depended on it.
Dear veteran, Thank you for serving. I can not tell how glad I am that you served in either the Army, Air Force, Marines, Navy, or the Coast Guard. From any of the wars, WWI,WWII,The Korean War, Persian Gulf War, The War On Terrorism (Afghanistan), the Iraq War, and the Texas Revolution. Thank you for serving. I cannot say how thankful I am that you made the ultimate sacrifice. I have no idea what you have been through in war. I am so grateful that you fought so we could celebrate veterans day, memorial day and all other holidays that only the U.S celebrates.
Why do we honor veterans in America? The veterans of America need to be honored due to them risking their lives for many others. They also have to give up their time with family and friends. They have to deal with the many deaths either from their side of the battlefield or the other. Now with them doing these thing we are able to live without fear in the world. Also veterans must know that their lives would never be the same ever again. That is due to the war doing things to their brains causing them to act differently than normal.
How Do We Honor Veterans? Who is this, who is not? It really doesn't matter cause the world stops for November 11th to celebrate the veterans who are or who once fought for this country. But, how do we really honor our veterans?We come together as a country and we say the pledge and the national anthem.
Everyone has a busy schedule. I have a lot on my plate at the moment and I'm only a junior. This year has been the hardest school year in my entire life and I've never experienced anything like this. Looking at my school schedule, I knew I was going to be facing a lot of homework. Sports were going to be difficult to handle because of the teams ahead of me. My other extracurricular activities will be fun for the most part, but there will be a lot of time commitment issues I will have to face. Moreover, this also leads to what I want to learn in this Honor's English III class.
It is better to die with honor than to live with shame It has been said, "I would rather die standing than live on my knees!" (Emiliano Zapata). All things are possible to a person who stands on the foundation of honor. The definition of honor is a high regard
Duty, Honor, Country “And through all this welter of change and development, your mission remains fixed, determined, inviolable: it is to win our wars,” this statement embodies Douglas Macarthur’s Speech “Duty, Honor, Country”. It was given in 1962 in acceptance of the Thayer Award, “The Award given… citizen of the United States, whose outstanding character, … comparison to the qualities for which West Point strives, in keeping with its motto - Duty, Honor, Country.” (AOGUSMA) It has been presented to other distinguished leaders such as Former Presidents Dwight D. Eisenhower and Ronald Regan, all of who upheld American values and the pillars, Duty, Honor and Country of the US Army. General Douglas Macarthur was one of four Men to reach
General Douglas MacArthur addressed the cadets and commanding officers at West Point Academy on May 12, 1962 after receiving the Sylvanus Thayer Award. The purpose of his speech was not only to address the cadets but to also inform the civilians of the expectations of a soldier. Their expectations to follow the code—Duty, Honor, Country. There are several techniques that are used to create an effective speech. The tone is serious but also provides insight. It is great to personalize the speech for the audience and the occasion. General Douglas MacArthur effective does so in his deliverance of “Duty, Honor, Country”. The General uses three main rhetoric devices to convey his message to his audience.

Honorable ADC(Ret) Gerald Gamm, I will never going to forget everything that you did for me. Actually, you were the person to give the opportunity and guided me thought the correct path to achieve my goal. Being selected as a Chief Petty officer means a lot, not only for me, but for my family and the sailor that I work with, work for and that did work for me. Unfortunately, two of them they are not within us anymore, but I know for sure that they would be happy seeing me wearing anchors; AD2 Marvin Layao and AO2 Jason Gober. Definitely, they were an integral part of at I'm going through today. Rest In Peace brothers!
At first it was just seeing who had what skills. Me and Dalton were put in the same group, the group was made up of a total 5 out of 9,268. The group members were me as leader, Dalton was second in command, my lutinti was Justin, my corporal was Aaron, and the last member was our medic and her name was Sophia. We all a specialized in a specific category mine was weaponry, Daltons is battle strategy, Justin’s was the art of camoflash, and Sophia’s was medical expert. The last year of training is finally over we can relax for one night before getting deployed and the way the academy wants us to relax is by the throwing a good job, good luck and come back home safe party. But little did anybody know it was going to be our first true test of combat because we were attack just little after the party started. Casualties were very low but it was the true first time that we have been attacked as an act of war.
I am Jessica and it is nice to meet you. Thank you for your service in the Navy! My husband’s cousin retried from the Navy and went to another branch and now he is a Black Hawk Flight Instructor.
As a DS, I was responsible for coaching, counseling, and mentoring of hundreds, almost 900, of Soldiers as they go thru a transformation from a civilian to a combat-ready Soldier. But In order for me to do that I had to know the basic knowledge which is why I needed to attend DS School. I was taught those skills but also how to be an advisor to the Recruits. I took the time to get to know 99 percent of the Recruits, making personal contact (as if they were my child) with them and making it my duty to know all of their names (even created nicknames for the hard to pronounce) by the end of week one. They knew by the end of the first week that I was passionate about what I am doing and they can come to me about
