...(5) Sensors. Sensors are used to detect forces and guide weaponry. Remember the job of a scout? They would move ahead of the army to spy on the opposition ahead and relay it back.

Then there is the surveillance blimp that can see airborne 340 mil...

Field Marshal Haig: “Hero or Butcher of the Somme”

...Although he was a good leader source 22 still contradicts source 19 with its description of the British being “Lion led by Donkeys”. This implies that the British generals were clueless and did not know what they were doing. Source 20 disagrees with this as it writes how “at the end of the war Haig and the others were heroes. The view of them as “donkeys” only appeared later.”This implies that their primary reaction towards Haig differed only after the war when his tactics had come u...

My Journey

Punctuality in the Military

...There are ways I can help myself to always be on time, for instance, I can make sure that my alarm is set and is loud enough so I don’t sleep through it. I can set myself enough time in the morning so I don’t have to rush out the door and I have enough of a buffer in the event traffic at the gate decides it’s going to be extra bad one particular morning. If, by all means, I have done everything to prevent myself from being late and the situation still puts me in the position, I am to notif...

Standard Operating Procedure

...What I have discovered while writing this essay will follow me throughout my career in the U.S.Army and hopefully help me become a better soldier and a better student in my future endeavors.

This includes the nonverbal orders that are written. In retrospect these a...

Indian Army

...Let every Indian soldier remember the inspiring message of one of the ablest leaders of India, Sardar Patel:- "The deeds of gallantry you performed in the two Great wars adorn the pages of world history.

Which then it makes it harder to correct thus soldier when you’re guilty of doing the same thing. In my own opinion I think the best way for me tackle these issues is to educat...

Military metaphor

...To those of us who have lost friends and loved ones this cuts deep and tugs at the heart.

Respect Towards an NCO

...Respect towards NCO's is one of the Army's most important values because it could prevent any failures in communication between the soldier and the NCO.

Americans win the War of Independence

Qualities of my grandfather

..."I always remember my house, my garden, my neighbors, and every single city of Abkhazia, where I spent a long time of my life.

Respect Toward Your Superiors

...It is extremely easy to sit back and say that parents should teach respect, but it is not as easy to actually teach it. For there is really no way to teach a child to respect others. Parents can tell their children to respect others all they want, but the only way a child will actually learn respect is from observing their parents as well as others showing respect. This is why teaching respect is so difficult, even if a child sees his parents respecting others it may not be enough, the child mu...

Dehumanization in All Quiet on the Western Front

...Without the columns of soldiers, the lieutenants, generals, and other leaders in the army would be insignificant because they would have no inferiors and not enough men to fight a war. The “individual” soldier is irrelevant, too. He has no power on his own, because men do not fight wars. Armies do. When one soldier falls, another takes his place without second thought, as if an automaton or a well-trained dog. They follow orders without questions, and eventually the soldier can no longer com...

Thomas Paine, The Crisis

...As George Washington was preparing his soldiers to embark on what would eventually be the decisive win that America desperately needed, he read aloud, “ The Crisis”, by Thomas Paine. The timing of Paine’s message being read aloud to the soldiers was nothing short of perfect.

The Mansabdari System

...The watan-jagirs were normally granted to those zamindars who were already in possession of their watans (homelands) before the expansion of the Mughal empire. The mansab was not hereditary and it automatically lapsed after the death or dismissal of the mansabdar. The son of a mansabdar, if he was granted a mansab, had to begin afresh.

Masculinity in the Philippines

...Despite its isolation in the mountains of Baguio, the PMA's training of these young males had lasting implications for the whole of Philippine society. The school served, in effect, as a social laboratory, a crucible for casting a new form of Filipino masculinity. Through hazing, study, and drill, the academy pounded young males into a foreign mold of military manhood. By parading before the masses in Manila and acting in Tagalog films, these prewar PMA cadets projected this image of masculinity...

The Red Convertible

...Erdrich uses her short story to make a statement that the Vietnam War did not just have a horrendous effect on the soldiers who participated in it, but also on the people who knew them before the war.

Defining Military Discipline and Values

...As I strive on to be a better soldier and take the initiative to be a leader in today’s Army, I look a little closer at each of these values. There is always something to work on personally and objectively. To me, being late to PT wasn’t that big of a deal, but if I look at the whole picture it is. If I look deeper as to what m actions are saying, I realize just how important appearance really is. If I am perceived to be a bad soldier that that is the way I will be treated. I will continue t...
