- Navy Ncdu Teams - 1,603 words
Navy Ncdu Teams The Teams On the beach invasions of Normandy, one of the marines commented, "Jesus, we don't even have control of the beach yet and already the tourist are here!". This is the normal response that the men of UDT get, during WWII in the pacific campaign. They would paint themselves with steaks of blue and white. They were the first ones on the beach and the last ones to leave. They carried no weapons except for a combat knife used for cutting, and crimping the fuses of their explosives. Some say that you would have to be "half nuts and half fish" to join the UDT. But, besides being courageous and saving the lives of many a thankful marine(although they will not admit it) the U ...

... he prisoners. After being ordered to participate, McCain spoiled the service because he knew that it was propaganda. Returning to his cell, he received the beating he knew would come. Then on Christmas Eve 1970, McCain was finally let out of solitary and placed with fifty other American soldiers. McCain could not believe his good fortune; it was the perfect Christmas present (Timberg 102). McCain spent most of his remaining imprisonment there, though he was moved for a time to a small camp near the Chinese border. Orson Swindle remembered the John McCain of this period: He looked sort of funny when he talked to you. He just couldnt move his arms very much, nothing above his shoulders. Ye ...

- Public Vs Private Schooling - 846 words
Public Vs. Private Schooling As American support for the public education system dwindles, many parents find the only place for their children to receive a quality education is in a private school. The areas that are most important to a private school are also the ones that seem to be lacking in public schools. These include safety, order, teaching the basics and challenging young minds. Across the nation, public education systems continue to fail students, therefore many have chosen, like myself, to attend private Catholic high schools to receive an education that will better prepare them for college. Overcrowded public high schools have been dealt with the problems of insufficient funding, ...

- When Comparing Mens Ability To Womens Ability, Is There Really A Big Difference Many People Believe That - 1,208 words
When comparing men's ability to women's ability, is there really a big difference? Many people believe that differences do take place, but how? Both men and women have hopes, dreams, strengths, weaknesses, and goals. Even though these similarities exist, women are still sometimes thought to be lower than their male peers. There have been many cases in which women felt they were being treated differently than the males around them. But, did you ever think there would be the problem of inequality between men and women in America's defense system? Both men and women have the right to serve in the military; but, many times women face discrimination and the problem of being unaccepted, possibly a ...

... Captain Hartman stated, "If sexual harassment goes the way racism in the Navy and Marine Corps, you can expect to have it around for a long time." In 1989 a study at the Pentagon showed that sixty-four percent of women said they were sexually harassed, that percent was only at forty-two two years earlier in 1987 (McGonigle and Timms 1). Then in 1990, it was labeled that sexual harassment was an "epidemic" because in a survey given to twenty thousand women, two out of three said they at one time or another had unwanted advances made at them (Francake 157). Forty-seven percent of investigated women said they had experienced this "unwanted sexual attention." Fifteen percent said they experi ...

- Yamamoto - 1,915 words
Yamamoto Yamamoto, the man who planned Pearl Harbor increased my knowledge about the people of Japan because it introduced me to their culture, and the life and times in Japan before World War II. In Japan, the family is the basic unit of society. For example, if a Japanese has the unfortunate occurrence of producing only daughters, they will insist that one of their daughters husbands changes his last name to keep their daughter's last name alive. It was, also, not unusual for people to change their last names. Isoroku Tankano was born in 1884. In 1916, he changed his last name to Yamamoto, because the name Yamamoto was an honorable and ancient one in the history of Japan. One such figure w ...
