All of us make sacrifices, but consider the sacrifices made by veterans. How many soldiers willingly leave their worried families behind? Missing life’s experiences such as the birth of a baby or celebrating a favorite holiday impacts a veteran’s life in a way that we can hardly comprehend. Many years are spent without the comforts of their home and yet they still go out on the battlefield knowing their lives are at stake fighting to grant us our freedoms.
While I admire the work that many veterans have done, I don’t believe that I would be able to make the same sacrifices as they did. As a service to their country, they took it upon themselves to protect those unknown to them. They are a part of something greater than themselves in which they are essential to the outcome of the whole. All roles are of equal importance because without them all our rights would be unfound. There would be no freedom of speech or right to a fair trial. Our country would be without purpose if we
I served in the United States Army for almost seven years. I loved every minute of it. Well, I might not have enjoyed every minute, but I enjoyed the majority of my time served. The knowledge, insight, training, education and experience
As an organizational- level leadership, he will confront many thorny problems and missions that challenge their moral criteria and military profession. In particular, when they receive the order from the upper- level, how he employ his expertise to exercise his moral leadership and undertake the tasks. Actually, both of the profession and ethic are interdependent, and inseparable. Thus, a professional commissioned officer should understand how to fit ethic into his expertise. Moreover, people would face the dilemmatic situation between the obedience of rules and the consideration of the consequence. When it comes to the moral or ethical, should I follow the deontology or consequentialism? Which one is the most critical priority to the stewardship
Military service, to me, means to give my all in the fight for freedom and equality. Every task must be completed with full ability and effort. Furthermore, military service means not just serving to protect one’s own family and friends, but each of their friends and family as well. Military service is a selfless act, protecting all Americans, while at the same time, serving to propel and maintain America as the world superpower it
Veterans sacrificed their lives for us. A lot of those soldiers never thought they would have to actually go out and hurt someone. Throughout the battle a lot of people were really bad hurt and a lot did not make it. A lot gave there arms, and legs for us. They didn’t run away they stood their ground and gave their lives for us. The ones that got hurt or had scars will be the ones you can tell that never ran. Those are the ones that mabey saw others run, but stayed with tears but keep going. For these reasons, we should always be respectful and be glad they did it for us.
Veterans put their life on the line to help defend our country because it’s something they feel they need to do. They are very inspiring people. Most people don’t have the courage to go to war. The men and women who are so courageous are once in a lifetime people who have amazing stories to tell. Our freedom would not exist if it weren’t for veterans.
I have maybe four people (that I know of) that are veterans that I’m related to. All of my great grand fathers served. I have a friend that is a graduate from VMI(Virginia Military Institute).
As it turns out, there are different categories within the term ‘veteran.’ “A war veteran is any Government Issue ordered to foreign soil or waters to participate in direct or support activity against an enemy” (Coleman, 2008). While a combat veteran is defined as, “any Government Issue who experienced any level of hostility for any duration resulting from offensive, defensive, or friendly fire military action involving a real or perceived enemy in any pre- or post-designated theater or combat (war) operations” (Coleman, 2008). While they both may seem similar, the difference lays between real and perceived danger. According to the 2012 U.S. Census brief from the Department of Veterans Affairs website, there are more than 12 million veterans of age 65 and older. Due to the large number of older veterans, some people forget to include young individuals under the veteran
Millions of men and women have died and been severely injured fighting for our country to get one step closer to freedom. George Washington once said, “The willingness with which our young people are likely to serve in any war, no matter how justified, shall be directly proportional to how they perceive the veterans of earlier wars were treated and appreciated by their nation.” This quote couldn’t be more accurate. They men and women that have served this country are braver than anyone I know and they do get the respect they deserve.
Military veterans sacrifice many things to defend America. Sacrificing their families, jobs, friends, and sometimes even their lives, to protect our human rights is honorable. They venture away from all of the luxuries of home to ensure that America remains the same extraordinary country that it is.
One often misinterprets the true meaning of war, believing it is only a dispute that is ended through fighting. In fact, war is more than just fighting. It is a battle where many brave souls lose their lives for protecting the country they love. Many of the rights we have today would not have been possible without the sacrifice of many brave American soldiers. Instead of living in a tranquil and prosperous nation, we could be living in a nation that resembles countries such as Africa, living under poor conditions and extreme poverty. It is imperative to take into consideration that the veterans we have today have made an impact on our nation and we owe much of our respect to them. Not many people have the courage to take on the heavy and overwhelming duty of going to war, knowing that death is imminent. Along with that, many of them have experienced traumatizing moments that have scarred them for life. Because of this, there is much appreciation and respect inclined towards
The criminal trial process is an interesting process that takes place in Courtrooms all across the United States and throughout the globe. This study intends to set out the various steps in the criminal trial process in the American justice system. A trial is described as a "legal forum for resolving individual disputes, and in the case of a criminal charge, it is a means for establishing whether an accused person is legally guilty of an offense. The trial process varies with respect to whether the matter at issue is civil in nature or criminal.Â In either case, a jury acts as a fact-finding body for the court in assessing information and evidence that is presented by the respective parties in a case. A judge presides over the court and addresses all the legal issues that arise during the trial. A judge also instructs the jury how to apply the facts to the laws that will govern in a given case."

On 8th August, 1945, shortly after the end of World War II in May of 1945, the Allied governments entered into a joint agreement establishing the International Military Tribunal for the purpose of trying those responsible for the war atrocities. Whereas some 5,000 Nazi’s were charged with war crimes, the Nuremberg trials were designed specifically to prosecute high ranking Nazi officials with whom the authority for the commission of heinous atrocities rested.
World War II is one of many wars that brings people to ask, why do these men serve even though there is the possibility of death? There are many reasons why a soldier may decide to serve. They may join because it is there career and a way to earn a living. Their motivation is their families and creating a better way of life for them. Some join to protect patriotism and putting in their part for what seems right, and others join because they enjoy thinking of someone who serves as a hero. Servicemen expect post-war life to be peaceful and go back to normal. Many, in reality, deal with PTSD and other stressors that make it difficult to adjust to post-war life.
