1. The Significance of the Poppy
The poppy is associated with service to one’s country and is used to commemorate those who died fighting for their county. If you are from a generation after WWII, you may recognize the symbol but have you given much thought as to why that particular flower was used?
2. Combat Tour Lengths - A Rough Comparison
The U.S. Army is back to 12 month combat tours again. How does this compare to the wars of yesteryear?
3. Margaret Cochran Corbin
Immortalized as the first woman to receive veteran’s benefits -- what a thin epitaph to put on a woman whose entire life was a battle from which she never faltered.
4. President Ronald Reagan Military Veteran
Second in a series of articles written by Critical Thinking Skills students at Jewett School of the Arts. The question they answer is – Does military experience help or hinder a president or presidential candidate? This one looks at Ronald Reagan.
5. Support Our Troops Bracelet
Bob is a member of the National Guard. He joined the Guard to help keep America free, and yes, that little extra money he receives helps the family, especially now that gas costs so much.
6. Time to Stand Down
It is my honor to dedicate Bedina's War to all members of the military, past, present, and future, who know War intimately and irrevocably. I also wish to thank the families of soldiers, those who with silent courage wait behind each door.
7. Military Experience and Andrew Jackson
Seventh in a series of articles written by Critical Thinking Skills students at Jewett School of the Arts. The question they answer is – Does military experience help or hinder a president or presidential candidate? This one looks at Andrew Jackson.
8. Agent Orange, Apathy, and Brooms
My article with regards to Agent Orange produced the result I wanted because it generated some responses. And those responses, plus some research, has turned up some things which require attention by anyone reading this article AND the American and Canadian people.
9. Tomb of the Unknown Soldier
War has always taken our best and brightest when they are too young, with their entire life ahead of them. Families of fallen servicemen need to have closure....so they can move past their grief and loss.
10. Veterans Treatment Court
The city of Buffalo, New York has found an unprecedented way to deal with Veterans in its courtrooms. Is it an experiment that will lead to similar situations throughout the United States?
