It is important to remember how much of daily life is affected by the work of veterans. Walking on streets, going to school, eating at restaurants, and hanging out with friends all depend on the service of veterans. They may not receive the proper amount of recognition from the younger generations, but their work is appreciated. In actuality, they gained vital information that can be shared with the future generations. They have gained respect and honor for their duty for our
What does the word “honor” mean? There are many different meanings for it. It can mean a privilege, some a title of respect for judges, but the main definition would be high respect or esteem usually for a person. Honor basically means respect, either if you honor something or have honor.
I deserve the Outstanding Citizen Award for my action within our tiny county and also balancing not fitting in as well as my rocky family life. Being a citizen does not mean putting in hours of volunteering, it means much more than this, being a person who cares about the community around them and also acting upon this care. It is so easy to be an active member in a group if you fit in or are good at what ever you do, I however, have had to overcome differences and personal struggles while being an achieved student and be an active member of society.
Everything our country has to be thankful for is because of you. You fight for our rights, for our freedom. You are the foundation of our country. People may forget how privileged they are. They forget you risk your life. There is not many places in the world where men and women who they have never met will fight, with their lives, to grant the rights for the people. They forget what America stands for. They forget why American is so great. They forget that not many other people in the world have that privilege to birth given rights . You protect and defend Americans' freedom and way of life. You have fought for our country, veterans and flag. You risk your time. The time you get to spend with your family, so we are able to spend it with
An honor code is a set of rules that might be enforced in schools. Children sign an agreement contract that says if they break these rules they accept the punishments. I believe that honor codes should be enforced in schools when cheating or other misbehaviors get out of control. In some schools “ students convicted of lying or cheating can expect to receive punishments ranging from suspension to expulsion .” I believe at this moment hotchkiss high school just work on revising our honor system.
With each experience, I have particular expectations; however, it is what I do not expect and cannot see which drives me to serve others and continue my journey. Last summer I spent a great deal of time at the LUMC campus, and while most of my time was spent in a lab, I did venture out, particularly to Hines V.A. Hospital. Being back at Hines brought back memories from when my grandfather was an extended stay patient. I had a realization that many veterans, with the exception of those that make it to the movie screen, can be so underappreciated. This group of men and women are shinning examples of selfless individuals. I developed a desire to give back to our nation’s heroes and became involved with a program through the Disabled American Veterans
I have done multiple service activates throughout my life. I have helped improved the American Legion building on Koffel Road, Hatfield, PA, helped out with Mania on Main Street, did an Urban Immersion, and served on multiple Eagle Projects. The American Legion building is part of the American Legion organization that helps veterans with mental issues, financial issues, wounds from combat, and a place to hang out with other veterans. I have helped built a fence and horseshoe pits for the American Legion building on Koffel Road, Hatfield, PA. Next, Mania on Main Street is an organization that collects food for the hunger in the North Penn region. For around 6 years, I went around neighborhoods collecting food and sending it to the organization
My name is Burl Galanis, and I am 21 year old African American living in Harlem, New York. I moved here right before Great War ended, around four years ago *1919*. My dad needed new work, and he found a great job as a factory worker. He had his eye on this job ever since the previous holder got recruited. It is better up here than in the south with the Jim Crow law that segregated our schools. My brother got recruited to the Harlem Hellfighters. He fought the Central powers, and spent 191 days in front line trenches. For the great bravery his officers showed they where the first American to be awarded the Croix de Guerre. Sadly, with some of the other 1400
There are many awards and achievements to be earned in the United States military. But one award stands out from all of them the most prestige’s one and it is called the Medal of Honor.
If it wasn't for America's warriors, we would be nowhere close to where we are today. Thank goodness for those who serve. They drop their ordinary citizen life and normal routines to live by a weird, different life style. They often wake up at 5:00 a.m to go on runs, as they prepare for any missions that they must take on. There are tons of veterans that have risked their life to the point where when they come home completely different. Whether that is hearing loss, PTSD or even missing limbs. Now if someone famous, let's say Aaron Rodgers. Aaron Rodgers decides to join the military, and he loses an arm. There would be thousands of dollars waiting for him. People would feel so bad, and they would give money to him. I feel that all soldiers and veterans should get some sort of thank you from us citizens for protecting all of us. So, that is why I think that military discounts are a fabulous
Thank-you citizens of America, for creating a spectacular living society! Not just for being a veteran, but for taking an oath to fight for us to live in the land of the free. You deserve an endless amount of gratitude for doing the impossible and stepping forwards when others step back. All civilians in the United States appreciate you passing up so many opportunities for us. Some people don’t realize how often you save their life, how many relatives you save, or what you do to keep them free. I also know you don't get the honor you deserve at times. Rather, if it’s not knowing what to say, not knowing when to say it, or even just not knowing what to do if they respond. Additionally, I’m writing this essay to introduce you to the thought
Did you know that the Military is not just individuals serving our country? The Military protects our country, and gives us freedom and opportunities in life. Being in America is an honor. Americans are able to do endless of things in their short lives.
