I don’t see a career in the U.S. Army as an obligation but as a privilege. This is a once in a life time opportunity for me to uphold. I am ready to take a leap of faith and embrace my future. Growing up in a family where I was not encourage to make anything great of myself, only made me fight harder to become someone successful. I am a current college student who will be walking the stage of Manor College this May of 2014 with my Associate Degree in Science. But I am not finished yet; starting in the Fall of 2014 I will begin my training for becoming an RN-BSN and fulfilling my dreams. I currently hold an accumulative GPA of a 3.5 while playing 3 sports, which are Rugby, Volleyball, and Softball. As you can see even with a busy schedule I still have the ability to succeed. I was put on this earth to change people’s lives and to share my heart of gold with the world. Joining the Army ROTC Program will not only grant me with an opportunity like no other, but will get me once step closer to achieving my goal of becoming an Army Nurse for this country. I have always put people before myself and will continue to do so, but this opportunity will give me the chance to make a difference and leave imprints in the hearts of those whom I’ve helped. I cannot get this experience anywhere but here. This 4 year scholarship would be an honor and help me become a part of something bigger, but I need your help. As a leader I am already one step ahead of the rest. I have the drive, ambition, brains, and the determination to achieve anything and everything that crosses my path. I am asking you to take that leap of faith with me and trust that I will never fail you or this…...

...At this time the United States of America does not required men to serve in the military like other countries? Well I have wondered why myself to. But I am going to point out three reasons on why I think men should have to serve in this essay. One being men need to learn discipline. Two we need to keep this country that we live in safe and secured. And lastly to boost our economy and put more people to work. Men should serve in the military to lean discipline. Men these day have no respect for there parents let alone the cops. The military will help train them to respect people above them. Not only that it will help them with work ethic from the discipline point of view to be able to do their job and work hard at doing it. They will break you down and build you back up through training and physical training. If you screw up they will teach you how to act and then make you do some kind of physical training so it will sink you to your head. It is vital in our country to keep it protected to keep our freedoms that our fore fathers fought for and all the men and women before us. There for all men should be required to serve in the military. We are in a world of terrorism in this day and age, for example September 11, 2001 automatically comes to mind when I think of terrorism. Therefore men shouldn’t have to be asked to join they should just want to join if they want to keep their freedoms that they have. Where are the jobs in this country? Where is the money in this country...

...Gay’s within the Military This is a paper about how gay’s are aloud within the military. I will have this paper based on the pros and cons on the subject. It will be how I feel about it and along with how I think others will be based on this subject. It will be a broad band about this and will hopefully get the point of why I think it is ok with gay’s being in the military. With gay’s being within the military, I’m ok with it. I was in the Marines and with the guys I was with who knows if they were or were not gay already. They have their own life and choices as well as anybody else that wants to be in the military. Everybody deserves a chance to do something that they would like to do in their life. They are people like you and me. There are people out there that will not do anything for the military but then you have people that want to do it but cant because of what they believe in. That would be like telling someone that they can’t do it because of their race. Everyone has their own point of view when it comes to something like this but I think when they started to allow gays in the military it has really changed more people than it was made out to be. Not only for the gays life but also people that have nothing against them are happy for them to be able to do something that others won’t ever think about doing. When I first heard that they were aloud I was too happy about it because you never know how they will react to certain things, but when it came to me thinking......

...succeeding Ronald Reagan. He entered office at a period of change in the world; the fall of the Berlin Wall and the collapse of Soviet Union came early in his presidency. He ordered military operations in Panama and the Persian Gulf, at one point, Bush was recorded as having a record-high approval rating of 89 percent. Early in his term, Bush faced the problem of what to do with leftover deficits spawned by the Reagan years. At $220 billion in 1990, the deficit had grown to three times its size since 1980. Which to this day we still have not fully recovered from. Had Bush not entered into his presidential position with so many millions of dollars in debt, I believe its quite possible that he would have been reelected in 1992 because he wouldn’t have been disliked so greatly for breaking his word and promise to America to not raise taxes during his term in office. The Persian Gulf Was also known as operation Desert Storm, was initiated on January 17th 1991. This was a very emotional time for not only my family but also the American people. President George H. W. Bush deployed U.S. forces into Saudi Arabia, and also urged other countries to send their own forces to the scene. An array of nations joined the Coalition. Being that I was from a big southern family, being a member in the US Military was deemed very respectable. I recall having several family members that were deployed during operation Desert Storm. It was a tough time at home for my parents knowing that close......

Homosexuals in the Military

...Homosexuals in the Military Matthew Martin ENC1101 Mrs. Couch Keiser University April 19, 2012 Homosexuals in the Military Homosexuality within the military is a controversial subject. Sexual segregation in the military became relevant in the early 1940’s. Homosexuality is viewed differently among soldiers, veterans and the general public. As a soldier in The United States Army, I have encountered first-hand how this impacts both the military and workplace environment. Central to this issue is the question of whether or not homosexuality is detrimental to a soldier’s duty. George Washington, the nation's first Commander-in-Chief, held a strong opinion on this subject and gave a clear statement of his views on it in a court Marshall for a soldier who stood accused of sodomy. (Fitzpatrick, 1934) “At a General Court Martial Lieutenant Enslin [was] tried for attempting to commit sodomy with John Monhort, a fellow soldier. He was found guilty of the charges levied against him and was sentenced to be dismissed from the service. George Washington approved the sentence due to the abhorrence and detestation with which he viewed such infamous crimes.” (Fitzpatrick, 1934) The sexual orientation of military personnel was first recognized by The Military Code of Conduct in 1942. This stated that “homosexuals” were different than “normal” people or heterosexuals. This was revised in the military literature of army mobilization regulations 1943. (Cannistra, Downs, Rivero,......

...Controversy in the Military For the longest time homosexuals have had to deal with discrimination everywhere, including the military. When Bill Clinton ran for president, he gave a promise to the gays he would allow them to fight, but changed his stance when elected and did not follow through on his promise. Instead Clinton issued the policy Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell that still hindered the homosexual’s chance of getting into the military. Finally, now after years of discrimination, a Representative of the House wrote a bill that will allow homosexuals the right to join and fight in the armed forces. The H.R. 1283 Military Readiness Enhancement Act of 2009 states homosexuals can join the military and should pass for the benefit of all those who serve the armed forces. Official discrimination against homosexuals began during World War II. Before World War II, it was only African Americans who had a hard time joining the military, but then the military started becoming stricter on who can join and who cannot. The military started making people take a psychological test, where anyone who wanted to join the military had to get tested by a psychiatrist (Katel). If people claimed they were gay, they could not join the armed forces. Discrimination continued in every war America has fought until Bill Clinton came along. When Clinton ran for president, he guaranteed to lift the ban that the military established on not allowing homosexuals the right to fight. To get around his campaign...

Military Draft

...Jonathon Leyva Hill Reg English 4 February 13, 2014 Military Draft During times right after military draft where some of the most prosperous times in our nations history. People had more respect for each other, kids new how to treat there elders, there where more jobs then ever before, unemployment was the lowest it's ever been, and the nation was happy. The military service that was demanded of all able body men taught them not only how to fight but how to excel in life in general. The military is very good for that sort of thing. Although many believe that the draft should never be reinstated, if you look at out history the draft is actually better for our great nation. By 1973, the country switched to an all-volunteer military service, abandoning the concept of the military draft (Brisbane, par. 1). Congressman Charles Rangel planned to introduce a legislation calling for the draft reinstatement. If a military draft is reinstated, everyone, no matter what social class the person is, will have to do his or her part in the defense of our country. Of course there are people who oppose the military draft by saying that it is not very democratic and that it violates the freedom this country is know for fighting for. Congressman Rangel said, “There's no question in my mind that this president and this administration would never have invaded Iraq, especially on the flimsy evidence that was presented to the Congress, if indeed we had a draft and members of Congress......

(DoDD, 2011) To become a soldier one must first visit a local recruiting office; there a person may engage in talks with a recruiter, the recruiter’s main job is to help assess the civilian enquires about their military desires, the recruiter must talk to a recruit and his legal guardian or parents as no one under 18 can’t make decisions for themselves without their parents/ guardians permission. The recruiter then will start the process, one of the recruiter’s first assignments is to get the civilian ASVAB scores from their local high school or if the recruit is from out of town they can be retested on the ASVAB. The ASVAB stands for Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery test and it accesses a recruit’s probability for enlistment, military job placement and career exploration after the military. ASVAB scoring is based on (IRT) Item Response Theory, this model is used because it measures the examinee’s ability to be placed on the same scale as everyone else and each test is tailored to a specific ability level needed when the examinee picks their military job. The IRT model uses the (3pl) in which......

...DEFINE THE CONCEPT OF CIVIL MILITARY RELATIONS. COMPARE CIVIL MILITARY RELATIONS BETWEEN MALAYSIA AND ANOTHER STATES Introduction Civil Military Relations (CMR) describes the military and its relationship with the political system and society which it part is of.[1] Other scholar such as Huntington in his book Soldier and States dictate CMR as military security policy which together with internal and situational security policies is an aspect of national security policy, working at both the operational and institutional levels. In the laymen word, it describes the relationship between the civil authority of a given society and its military authority. Studies of CMR often rest on a normative assumption that civilian control of the military or military control of the state.[2] Civilian government control of the military basically happen in the countries that have developed political culture. Meanwhile, military will use is power to control the government and the state when society’s respect for civilian government are low. In other situation is when high level of external threat creates a massive destruction to the state or people, military will intervention is more likely. This essay will compare the CMR between Malaysia and Myanmar in order to differentiate and give clear understanding between civilian controls the military or military control the civilian.

...Why We Serve In the Military Sometimes it takes something terrible to realize what is important in life. When I was in the Army, I would constantly raise questions in my mind. “Why did I have to sacrifice being away from our love ones” or “Did we really need to protect anyone else other than our own”. It was 6:00 AM on a Monday morning. Everything was normal; I woke up, laced up my boots and went to work as a Squad leader over construction equipment operators. As I was driving to work my cell phone started to ring. I answered and on the other line was my 1st Sergeant; “Cotten I’m going to need you to come see me in my office for possible re-assignment”. At that point I thought he had a last minute tasking for me to go deploy to one of the countries in a faraway land. As I arrived at our unit’s building, I couldn’t help but think of the possibility of being gone for next twelve to eighteen months in a faraway country under a 100 plus degree sun. With palms sweaty and heart pounding at an incredible rate, I knocked and entered my 1st Sergeant’s office; “You wanted to see me Top?” I responded. “Yes, you are temporarily going to be assigned down the road as liaison for dignified transfers” he uttered. At that point I was relieved that I didn’t have to go anywhere and suffer under extreme conditions. The following day I reported to the protocol building and began my new job. As I walked in the building I couldn’t help but feel fortunate that I will be working with the......

...Have you ever wonder what it is like to be in the boots of a US Service Member during their deployment phase? Also have you ever wonder what it was like to fight in a combat zone and the trials and tribulation they face when the deployment goes on? Well I’m going to tell you the three phases of a deployment. First you start with the ceremony, the lonely flight and finally the trials and tribulations of the combat zone. As you well know I’m no longer in the military but I going to tell you these phases through my eyes when I was in the army during my combat tour in Afghanistan from June 2010 to June 2011. It all started when I first sergeant told us what time to be at the company so we can have our early formation before we head to the Green Ramp. If you don’t know what Green Ramp is, it’s the final holding area that separates the soldiers and the plane. The reason why they call it that because it’s a small ramp that leads to the plane and it has green lands on the sides of the ramp. The formation time was 0500 and the weather was so nice that I could hear all the early birds chirping away. The formation time came and the first sergeant held accountability for all the fellow enlisted and officers that were going with us to Afghanistan. When we all found out what time we were heading to Green Ramp, we all decided that this was going to be a very long day. One of my soldiers came up to me and asks will this be a steadfast deployment and I told him I sure hope so. When it was......

...past weekend??? Do you feel safe in America at this time? Well im Desmond and today we are going to talk about reasons we should not cut the Military Defense Budget. The 2016 national defense budget is 534 billion. I know that is a lot of money but can we really put a number on our safty. I got that fiqure from the Department of Defense website under fiscal year 2016 which started on Oct 1,2015 There are a lot of reasons we should maintain this budget but im going to highlight 3 of them. According to the Department of Defense website the US has a total 1,486,000 millitary personal on active duty with that in mind if we make cuts to the budget we could lose key personal in military ranks that could hurt us in some areas like intelligence, special forces and aviation. According to Global Firepower.com and business insider.com the United States has the best Trained Military personal in the World . My second argument is that in order to keep this elite status and to protect America we must maintain the budget and continue to train at a top level. Based on the current and past terrorist acts throughout the World if we make any cuts to the current budget we could lose the proper equipment that we use to aid military personal who need these tools to help while protecting this great country. The Equipment is a vidail in the fight to prevent terrorism......

...Military Technology Technology in the military has greatly increased strength and eased the ranking among world powers and effected the development of new military weapons. The term "Survival of the fittest" means that the strong will succeed but the meek will not, this is the case with military technology. The U.S. has the best technology in the world, therefore we are the highest military power. Technology is a very important part of warfare. Technology is driven by the military. The army's race during the cold war, spawned some of the greatest technical achievements in human history. Space travel for example is a result of the X-plane project. The Internet was produced by the military as well. If we stop investing in military technology, we risk our safety. If other nations had more advance technology than we do, they would have more power than we do. If that was to happen, we face the threat of that nation taking over us. Military technology may be divided into five categories. Offensive arms harm the enemy, while defensive weapons ward off offensive attacks. Transportation technology moves soldiers and weaponry; communications coordinate the movements of armed forces; and sensors detect forces and guide weaponry. There are many types of technological developments in the military happening at all times. They range from new aircraft to sophisticated guidance systems. Teams of specialists work for years to develop some of our simplest equipment. These......
