As Kit Carson looked out upon the wide expanses of rusty red desert before him, he felt as if he was in another world when compared to his boyhood home in the Missouri frontier (Biography.com). Large spires of rock jutted out of the flat ground as if they had come to life and raced to the skies. Combined with a sprinkling of gigantic mesas, the scene before him was most definitely hellish by description, but had a certain form of beauty not seen anywhere else. This beauty was the driving force that attracted the seasoned frontiersman and explorer to the small town of Taos, New Mexico. It was here he built his permanent home (Weiser).
He started out in the hospital as the quiet one who never talked some even thought he was deaf, but when McMurphy started to do his work on him you realized he was more of the Depersonalized one out of the group. He was laid back the loose individual he didn’t worry about much he went with whatever McMurphy wanted him to do and in the end busted himself out of there, and set McMurphy free.
This offered us a great opportunity to put our flight line marshalling skills to work. We started the day out like any other with PT, and breakfast. Then we headed to the air field to get started. It was a very hot day, luckily I started at the mission base helping with the paper works. Later on I went out and switched with Irish so that she can take a break. The minute I stepped onto the burning asphalt of the airfield, I knew that it was going to be a very long day. We had to marshal about eighty to ninety planes that day, and it left all of us exhausted. We followed the instructions of Speedy and Wedge and we were glad that they were there for us. At 6:00 pm we headed back to the barracks and took our showers and went directly to
“Hey I don’t know about yall, but I don't like our new Captain.” Mark says. “Ehh well he's not bad.” The crew says. “I think we should should mess up the ship.” Mark says. “Like what?” The crew replies. “You know like break some windows. Break the boards on the ship. Just mess some things up.” Mark says. “Ok we can.” The crew says. “Let's get started then” Mark
“I hate you,” she said softly into her microphone. At first I wasn’t sure if she meant for me to hear that but before I could stop myself I heard my own voice. “I know.” Honestly, I hated her too and I didn’t know what I was thinking when I decided to come with her. I guess I just thought she needed protection. That’s a brother’s job right? To protect his little sister. I don’t know how else to explain it.
James T. Kirk, captain of the USS Enterprise, was able to hold the trust and respect from his ship crew by being honest and “knowing when to let a branch of the company go”(www.realbusiness.co.uk, Schutte). According to Alex Knapp, “Kirk’s closest two advisors… a Vulcan … and a human… [were] frequently at odds with each other, recommending different courses of action and bringing very different types of arguments to bear in defense of those points of view. Kirk sometimes goes with one or the other, or sometimes takes their advice as a springboard to developing an entirely different course of action” (www.roanestate.edu, Knapp). This allowed Captain Kirk to be respected because he had advisors of different worldviews. Coward leaders, unlike
The teamed tried to ignore the incident and trudged on. Ryan, the team leader, exited the ship and began to unload the gear as Ago, the team apprentice, and Stanley, the master pilot, set up the base camp to get ready for the night.

Diary entry number 45, February 9. “I, John, am writing this in from deep space. Me, Michel, and Ralph are here in some kind of mothership. So far, we are fine here in the lower portion of the mothership . Although if we don’t move and get off this ship, I have a feeling that we will be in for a nasty treat. Vanessa is trying to get to us, but I don’t know where or how she is going to get to us. I do not have any ideas on how we are going to get off of this thing in one piece. I feel that most of this is my fault. I shouldn’t have gone in that lunatic’s house. If I didn’t plan the intrusion, we wouldn’t have to be in this mess.”
