“A young man who does not have what it takes to perform military service is not likely to have what it takes to make a living.” When joining the military you must perform your best to protect our country. Tons of men and women around the world fight for the country and make a career out of it. There are three major branches and many different jobs to go with each one. Each have many specific tasks. (Robbie Hughes Interview)
Military background and history has been in the world for a long time. It goes back as far as Assyrians, Spartans, Aztecs, Romans and Greek. The military purpose is mainly to protect our country and our rights and freedoms. It’s just a part of nature. No one came up with military it just happened and got stronger and stronger over the years. It first started with random people coming together protecting towns and homes and families, and eventually more and more people came together. The three main branches of the military are The Army, Navy, and Marine Corps. All three of these branches are the reason the U.S is how it is. These branches fight for our freedom, our rights, and our country!! (Robbie Hughes Interview)
The U.S Army is the strongest most respected and feared ground force in the world. It is also the oldest branch of the military and also the largest U.S. Military Service. There are approximately 76,000 officers and 401,000 enlisted members in the active duty Army. The success of the Army lives and dies on themselves and others. The army protects all that the constitution stands for. And each soldier defends this to their last breath with Loyalty, Duty, Respect, Honor, and Personal Courage. The Army has a mission to protect and defend its nation. ( “Overcoming Challenges” np)
There are no limits in the Army, none on what you can learn and on what you can achieve. The Army strengthens you, and your future, with expert training in one of over 150 different jobs for soldiers on Active Duty. There is no specific job a soldier must have; it all depends on what he/she wants. But if the choice is made wisely, it could affect a big part of your future job and plan. (“Overview” np)
When in the Army or in any other branch of the military, the soldiers are required to wear a uniform. Most soldiers in the Army will wear the Army Combat Uniform, or ACU, on a daily basis. It has a digitalized camouflage pattern that is grey, dessert sand and a foliage green color. It’s a long-sleeve jacket, cargo type trousers, moisture wicking t-shirt with brown combat boots. This uniform replaces both versions of the Battle Dress Uniform (BDU) and the Dessert Camouflage Uniform (DCU). (“BDU Review” np)
Today’s Army has traditions based on values of courage, initiative, and teamwork. The one thing that ties all these values together is a badge of pride serving the nation called the Rising Sun Badge. The Army tackles these values in the situations encountered in their careers. Also in the Army, as one of the many traditions there is a hand salute. It is a privileged gesture of respect and trust among soldiers. (Pike np)
To make it in the Army you must have the correct mindset. There are a few ways to make it easier. Believing in yourself helps, because not believing in yourself doesn’t give you the confidence you need. You must think about “problem solving”, when you have a problem, don’t dwell about it. Think about the positive things like how you might benefit from it. Turning problems into opportunities is a good skill to have. Also, forward thinking is an aspect of known as creative thinking is another good skill to have. If you condition yourself to be a better person and accept the fact that neither you nor anyone else is perfect it’ll have a good turn out to where your mindset should be. Organize your thoughts and ideas, improve your actions, and better yourself. Never be satisfied with yourself, always think you can do better even when you have done your best. Push yourself to be better, never settle. (“Having the Right Mindset” np)
The United States Army is responsible to cover land. Providing necessary forces is the primary mission of the Army. They protect the country at all times, and are second in line at war. They have strong artillery and fight when this country needs them to. (“Benefit Topics” np )
