part of the Japanese army and going to war for Japan is more intense than being a part of the American army and going to war for USA.
The one thing that really sticks out about a difference I learned is the outlook Japan has on war, it is different than the outlook America has on war. A reason being is because Japan really holds on to their past and they feel its right to keep traditions going unlike Americans. To me I don’t think it is bad for Japanese to hold on to their past because it really shows…
their own organizational culture, separate from the Navy’s as a whole. The focus here will be on the Navy as a whole, not through the eyes of each individual command. The Navy has negative cultural issues to deal with, such as those pertaining to suicide in addition to dealing with perceptions of why some people do not want to join the Navy. Not all is bad though. On the positive side, the Navy’s cultural awareness of “family first” is a tremendous draw for some navy spouses. Lastly, there are…
War not only physically harms the soldiers who partake in the fighting, it also
cuts deep into the mental health of those troops. In the article “Suicide Surpasses War
as Leading Cause of U.S. Military Deaths,” Gregg Zoroya explains how the
psychological aspect of modern warfare is becoming more difficult for soldiers as time
passes and as new warfare technologies emerge. Zoroya gives statistics supporting the
claim that more soldiers die from suicide now than they do from actual battle: “War was…
I became interested in seeing if others suffered with it as well. Therefore, I decided to write this paper on “What effect did the Vietnam war have on soldiers when they returned to the America?”
In researching this topic, the steps I used to find my data were: using my computer to check various websites such as CBS news, American veterans (the Vietnam war and it’s impact), Vietnam effects America and Vietnam against the war. I also used my school literature textbook that had information…
condition that is mostly associated with soldiers in war, but can arise from any kind of traumatic experience. Many of the cases are related to a strong traumatic event including but not limited to: rape, near death experiences and witnessing severe deaths. The first cases of PTSD were encountered in American soldiers who fought in Vietnam. Many veterans after 1975, which was the end of the Vietnam War, failed to return to their normal life. How is PTSD affecting soldiers, their relationships, and families…
Families are broken, lives are lost, and in some cases the minds of veterans have lost a sense of reality because of the battles that the soldiers endured. Undergoing traumatic experiences like war, when soldiers see friends and enemies die in front of them, limbs are lost, and enemies are engaged, can only result in an accumulation of guilt and suffering. Imagine a soldier who is defending his country and amid the fighting, begins a battle with himself. Everyone has his breaking point and not all wounds…

Enduring The Vietnam War
Over 9 million American military personnel served in active duty during one of the most gruesome wars ever fought, the Vietnam War. As Caputo, from A Rumor Of War by Philip Caputo, refers to the veterans on the war as they return home: “We had survived, and that was our only victory”(337). This war is considered to be the only military conflict that the United States has been involved in that they haven’t “won”. To agree with…
morally innocent, his rights are violated.
Even though, terrorists should be entitled to the due process like in the case of suicide bombers and terrorists, this poses danger to innocent civilians, and they deserve condemnation and punishment. Similarly, in a case like war is considered, we can say that harassments and tortures could in some way violate the rights of soldier when he/she is morally and political innocent and just fights as an order.
The U.S is accused of choosing the bits of law model…

Who Does PTSD Affect
•PTSD affects about 7.7 million American adults.
•PTSD can occur at any age.
•Women are more likely to develop PTSD than
men, and there is some evidence that the
potential for the disorder may run in families.
The Social Problem
This social problem exists because the government does little to actually
help soldiers with PTSD, they are typically just sent home and left to deal
with the effects of PTSD. Not enough programs and funds are available…
