THE ARMY AS A PROFESSION
After a decade of United States military action soldiers enjoy widespread public appreciation. The public consensus that the Army is the world’s most effective fighting force and protects US interests. Soldiers’ high level of training, use of superior equipment and dedication to duty increases effectiveness. These traits define Army soldiers as members in a profession of arms. To understand why the Army is a profession of arms we define profession, examine alternate points of view, and show how the Army meets that definition.

Propaganda has proven to be a valuable tool when trying to persuade others during a war. It has proven to bring out the best qualities in a nation, and it has also shown the ability to voice the true feelings of the people. For example, propaganda has been used to increase patriotism in times of conflict in America, and it has also been used to dissuade others from wanting bloodshed. “Uncle Sam” is a large and well-known piece of propaganda in America, and it has been used with countless different mediums to display the true outlook of the citizens. James Montgomery Flagg was responsible for illustrating the classic "I Want YOU for U.S. Army" poster, and an anonymous...

United States of America: Dominating the World Military Powers
Since the beginning of time, the strength of the World Leaders is directly affected by the strength of its military. It is nearly impossible for a Nation to be a world “power house” without the strength of a dominating military force. This statement holds truth when you look at the United States military and how it has shaped the balance of the United States’ influence throughout the world. Although the United States military force has constantly changed over the years; it still remains as the driving force behind the machine known as the United States. America’s military force has always been a threat, and began to emerge...

America and World War I
World War I was a world conflict lasting from 1914 to 1919 (2006). Soon after the war began Britain, France, and their allies set up a naval blockade of Germany and Austria. The Wilson Administration complained bitterly that the blockade violated international law (2010). It was not the conventional surface vessels used by Britain and France to enforce its blockade that enraged Americans, but the German submarines used. When American ships were intercepted by the British, the crew treated well. German submarines attacked without warning, and passengers had little to no chance of surviving (2010).
While Wilson weighed his options regarding the submarine issue,...

Lincoln was a very conservative man, and managed to provide leadership in both the political and military strategies. He is considered the man who shaped change in our nation, which led to many controversial issues being solved. It took...

The Napoleonic Empire came into existence following the coronation of Napoleon Bonaparte as Emperor of France at Notre Dame in 1804. The frontiers of the ancien regime had been expanded up to and beyond France’s natural borders, with the momentum of expansion following in direct correlation with the pace of France’s military conquests under the leadership of Bonaparte himself. The ‘Great Empire’ is often referred to as a single entity embracing French controlled Europe, but territories were in fact separated depending on the levels of French control. Territory ruled directly from Paris was known as the pays reunis which compromised of France’s...

The North Vietnamese Communist leadership's ability to reassess and adapt during the Vietnam War was reflected in how well they combined guerilla and conventional operations to achieve their strategic goal of unifying Vietnam under communist rule. Throughout the conflict, the Viet Cong (VC) were employed to conduct guerilla operations while North Vietnamese Army (NVA) and VC "main force" units were used to transition to conventional operations. Guerilla operations enabled Hanoi to inflict a steady flow of casualties on US forces which increased anti-war sentiment in America. NVA and VC main force conventional operations reinforced the US Army's conventional approach to the fight which caused...

Over the time before the Civil War, American women lives were based on a set of ideals that historians call "the Cult of True Womanhood." While men work moved away from the home and into shops, offices and factories, the household became a new kind of place: a private, feminized domestic sphere, a "haven in a heartless world." Women devoted their lives to creating a clean, comfortable, nurturing home for their husbands and children.
During the Civil War, however, American women turned their attention to the world outside the home. This was the first time in the history of United States that Women actively participated during the Civil War, and the best part is that the participation of the...

While the Cold War lasted for over forty years and ended with a resounding defeat of communism, it faded into a confrontation of proxies and indirect sparring. The buildup to the Cuban Missile Crisis was drawn out and measured in the diplomatic battles that were waged. Although the Cold War started after the end of World War II, it was the Cuban Missile Crisis that brought the world to the brink of a nuclear war between the United States and the Soviet Union.
Most historians mark the start of the Cold War on February 4, 1945 at the Yalta Conference between Josef Stalin, Winston Churchill, and Franklin Roosevelt. At this point in the war, Stalin had a 12 million-man army with 300...

Crook vs. Miles
Crook vs. Miles
It is quite apparent that Crook’s approach of fighting Geronimo was very different from Gen. Miles’ approach. According to the writer, General Crook’s approach to fighting Geronimo could not have succeeded even in the long-run. General Crook used unorthodox methods of attacking his enemies by sending out his troops for attack each time he wanted to confront Geronimo and his hostiles. During his tenure, Crook lost most of his troops in battles. Many homes in Arizona and New Mexico were raided, many US citizens killed and their horses stolen y Geronimo’s hostiles (Winning the West, n.d). It is no wonder...

Women at War
Women have faced multiple struggles to gain equality. When it comes to women trying to fight for our rights in the country, the struggle is even tougher. Throughout history, women being involved in the military seemed to be more of a burden than anything. Even though women can help with military readiness, social change throughout the military and get the career advancement they have been dreaming of for so long, they have had a hard time convincing others differently. Others would see women being a part of the military as a risk factor, as they are not as physically strong as men or that women are to compassionate compared to men. Even with the extra stress from maternal and...

International Foreign Policy
Nineteen forty-five was thought to be a turning point as the Second World War came to a close. In addition, over fifty-one countries committed themselves to maintaining international peace across the globe, all with the hope of preventing future genocide. Almost forty-seven years after taking this pledge, the world turned their backs on the country of Rwanda, while Hutu extremists slaughtered almost a million Tutsis. George and Keir Pearson wrote the movie Hotel Rwanda to help expose the injustices felt by the people of Rwanda during this time. It is through the use of Colonel Oliver’s role within the movie that the lack of humanitarian intervention in the...

Sexual predators have more access to children today than in the past. Through the internet Sexual offenders can connect with children more discreetly. Today, children are just as likely to socialize online as they are to meet in the mall or by going to other public places like the movies. Predators use the anonymity of the internet to their advantage since it allows them to become whoever they want. They target both girls and boys of all ages. "Child predators are migrating from traditional methods to alternate media," says Detective Lt. Thomas Kish of the Michigan State Police.

The civil rights movement was a worldwide political movement for equality before the law occurring between approximately 1950 and 1980. In many situations it took the form of campaigns of civil resistance aimed at achieving change by nonviolent forms of resistance. In some situations it was accompanied, or followed, by civil unrest and armed rebellion. The process was long and tenuous in many countries, and many of these movements did not fully achieve their goals although, the efforts of these movements did lead to improvements in the legal rights of previously oppressed groups of people.

The Syrian Civil War has resulted in the deaths of hundreds of thousands of people. Since 2011, protests and attacks have been a daily occurrence, and the regime of Bashar Al-Assad has done what it believed was necessary to stop rebel forces and end protests. As such, Assad has committed many questionable, at best, and criminal, at worst, actions against the civilians of Syria in an effort to stop the rebels. The indiscriminate warfare Assad has used against Syrian citizens is shown in multiple international doctrines as illegal, and is thus a war crime, which should be prosecuted.

During the Vietnam War the US Field Artillery had to change their tactics and weaponry to fight an unconventional war that they were not used to. This was also the first war that the United States had fought where the terrain helped the enemy greatly which helped the change come even faster.
The NVA did not have a line of troops but instead operated in smaller groups all around the units. They could mass together and attack from any direction. In order to combat this, the Army split areas of operation between divisions. The divisions than divided it between brigades, brigades to battalions, and battalions to companies. This affected the Artillery in many ways. They could not mass their...

Cancer remains the second most common cause of death in the US, accounting for nearly 1 of every 4 deaths. Is being diagnosed with testicular cancer, a death sentence?

The answer from me and most scholars and intelligence analysts has been ‘‘NO’’
The Pyongyang regime’s stability in the aftermath of the events in the Middle East and North Africa is an ‘‘old question’’ that was answered in the 1990s when the DPRK (Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, North Korea) faced the most critical test of its life, and survived. The collapse of the Soviet Union, the drastic cuts in patron aid from China, and the onset of famine that killed hundreds of thousands all constituted the ultimate...

It was comprised of delegates from the colonies which met in 1774 to the reaction of the Coercive Acts which were a series of measures imposed by the British government on the colonies in response to their resistance to the new taxes imposed by the British. The American dream is built upon a foundation of struggles and gains, along with more struggles. A look back to early American history provides one with a timeline that...

Globalization, Guns, and Greed

Globalization is defined in many ways, and although it has been expanding and contracting over thousands of years, it has only in the past two centuries become a topic of such interest. Many think of globalization as “primarily a monetary phenomenon,” and although most definitions of globalization do only concern trade, it is more broadly “the process by which different regions of the world affect one another economically, politically, or culturally.” Today, military might is paramount in the expansion of...

Throughout history slavery has been put in the spotlight. Whether it be positive or negative, slavery was at the forefront of an economy President Abraham Lincoln, in his second inaugural address said this, “One-eighth of the whole population were colored slaves, not distributed generally over the Union, but localized in the sourthern part of it. These slaves constituted a peculiar and powerful interest. All knew that this interest was somehow the cause of the war.” Was the civil war really about the freedom of slavery? Or was there an underlying reason for the Civil War?
Before the Civil War began, we see the life of one young African American slave, Celia, a fourteen year old girl. Celia...

There are many views that people have of Cuba’s Fidel Castro. Castro is a figure with opinions on both ends of the spectrum. While he is not worldly popular at this point in his life, he was immensely beneficial to his country. Fidel Castro, leader of Cuba for the past 50 years may not be viewed in the best light, but he did phenomenal things for his people which makes him one of the most undervalued and overlooked political figures.
Fidel Castro Ruz was born in Biran, Cuba on August 13, 1926 (Britannica, 2014). Born into a middle class sugar farm owning family, Castro grew up relatively affluent but his origins pointed to anything but a revolutionary career. “I was born into a family of...
