The book I chose to do my book report on is the marines of montford point. This is a true story of the marines of montford point, North Carolina. The first African American segment of the United States marine corps. In this book we find out the struggles they went threw because of the racial barrier as well as the political implications that were going on at the time. This was a very inspiring book and it reminds people of the cost of freedom.
NonCommissioned Officers are the backbone of the Marine Corps. Each leader is very different from the other. Some Marines enjoy being a corporal only because of the increase in rank and pay. A few become the tactless leaders junior Marines try to avoid. Fortunately, many others strive to become the leader that other Marines wish to emulate. They know what it means to be a good leader. Those Marines have the traits of a leader and they get to know their Marines
On November 10th, 1775, the Continental Congress passed a resolution that stated "two Battalions of Marines be raised", which established the Continental Marines, and is now considered the birth date of the Marines. The newly formed Continental Marines served on both land and sea, and took part in many major engagements, which helped establish them as an important branch of the Armed Forces. The first Commandant of the Continental Marines was Captain Samuel Nicholas, who was born in Philadelphia in 1744. He was commissioned to be a “Captain of Marines” by the 2nd Continental Congress on November 5th 1775. Nicholas soon established Tun Tavern as the recruiting headquarters. Tun Tavern’s owner, Robert Mullen, was so successful at recruiting
On February 19, 1945 five Marines and one Sailor participated in an event that would forever change the course of events for the Marine Corps. Undoubtedly one of the most powerful images of the 20th century is the flag raising atop Mount Suribachi on Iwo Jima. The flag raising captured the courage, commitment and honor that these Marines held as they reached the top. These individuals were only doing what they were instructed to do, but it was the Pulitzer Prize winning photograph that was taken by Joe Rosenthal that turned this war time event into a world wide historical event. Behind the eagle, globe and anchor, the flag raising has taken the form of a second emblem for the Marine Corps.
America never truly recovered from the shock that followed the collapse of the Twin Towers in lower Manhattan, the strike on the Pentagon, the final crashed airline in Shanksville, PA.
The United States Marine Corps is looking for a “Few Good Men” for their Officer Corps. There are a few different ways to achieve the rank of Second Lieutenant. Some officers go straight from college to a recruiter, and others join as an enlisted Marine and apply for an officer rank later in their career. I am applying for a commission from the enlisted ranks. I have found that enlisted to officer programs have many requirements and can be somewhat confusing, but the goal of making a move from enlisted to officer can be accomplished as long as I are willing to put forth the effort to achieve that goal.
The campaign advertisement ran by the United States Marine Corps uses versatile imagery and a connotative language approach to strategically attract minority women. The print ad shows a female Marine in a defensive martial arts pose on looked by a crowd of men in what seems to be a combat training session implying she is the leader. The tag line: “There are no female Marines. Only Marines” suggests that women who join the Marines will have equal standing with men in their organization.
No matter if you stay in for one enlistment or two, the depth of the Marine Corps is unknown so knowledge will continuously flow and it is endless. All Marines get taught the basics of being a leader in entry level training, but only a few can react to help form their trait into an elite skill only for them. In order to become the elite you have to build a "Foundation of Values" (pg.31) so that respect in all aspects will become evident between the followers and their leader(s). While setting the example it does not matter what rank you are, you still show that the standards that you hold will reflect on who you are as a person and a Marine. Each Marine chooses how their standards and ways will become beneficial not only to the Marine Corps, but to themselves also. Why do ethics make conducting a moment of decision making so hard? At some point and time every Marine will come to a point in their career or life where the grey area will be the path they choose, but will not think that it is the right way. Moral and ethic dilemmas are common more and more each day. Every Marine is taught to be the toughest both physically, and mentally.
November 10, 1775, is revered as being the Marine Corps birthday, and its birthplace being at Tun Tavern, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The Continental Congress met at Tun Tavern, to establish two battalions of Continental Marines, under the command of Cpt. Samuel Nicholas, as an amphibious fighting force who would later in March of 1776, participate in their first foreign raid, in the Bahamas (www.globalsecurity.org ). After the Treaty of Paris
The complex mind of a seventeen -year -old kid isn’t always the most lucid of the bunch. It is faced with a variety of crucial life decisions throughout this time period. Some choose the typical college route, others may decide to get into a specific trade, and last but not least there those who choose to serve our country, in which they join a specific branch of service. These young individuals see commercials on television; see local recruiters coming to their high school and ads in the newspaper or even on the side bar of their Facebook page. All of these influences have some sort of persuasion and influence in their own personal decision. This how America breeds and creates “the land of the free and the home of the brave” in our
To begin, Mr. Jones and Mr. Wang’s point of views on what went wrong are very different. From the start, Jones had strong generalizations about Chinese negotiation and business strategy, which evidently were wrong. Also, Wang and Jones had different business philosophy. On one hand, Wang saw this business deal as a way to enter a long-term partnership built on mutual trust, while Jones’ saw this as an opportunity to further his company’s profit.
