In life, people make sacrifices for the well-being of themselves and others. The call of a sacrifice should be a personal decision or life practices for a better coexistence. However, this is not true for American soldiers, their duties call for sacrifices, which sometimes go unrewarded or maim others killing their dreams. Loyalty is one of the seven values a US soldier must adhere to during the service and after the service. These values are shown through allegiance towards the US constitution (Schroeder). The ultimate sacrifices of the soldiers create conducive states for us, the best we can do is to thank them and appreciate their efforts. It is suitable that the depth of their sacrifice and the amount of their achievements and triumphs earned the United States this era of a great nation.
The soldiers sacrifice their lives for the nation and pledge allegiance to the constitution that they will serve with devotion. This make them state property; they do not have control of their lives like other citizen because the call requires them to be alert at all times. Their social, political, economical, and other aspects of life is controlled and monitored by the state. They go to war and defend the nation at the expense of their lives. Like men and women of the forces who served the country against attacks in the past wars, the current soldiers still lay their lives for the sake of the nation. American soldiers constantly fight oppression and tyranny, which faces the nation and other nations. Unrestrained, terrorism and the danger of terrorism, whether done abroad or on American soil, threaten our prosperity, our culture, and our means of life. The responsibility for combating and overcoming this wicked scourge lies with our military services and our alliance allies, and much of the yoke of this new effort falls to women and men serving in the Army. Our soldiers sacrifice their lives to the point of death during wars and other duty responsibilities. Life of a soldier revolves around the military practices and restrain in the involvement of the public affairs. The mission of the soldier is to safeguard life of the others during war or confrontations; this risks their lives.
Family and society life
Human are social creatures. The onset society or community is the humble union of a man and a woman in forming a family. Family involves mutual love and extended relationship, which require constant companion. However, soldiers have to sacrifice some of the family tiers since the duty make them work until odd hours or seasons. Family sacrifice is one of the most daunting activities soldier are called to abide by. These are human as other they enjoy experiencing love moments and family activities which unite them. During the long foreign duties, the loved one suffers their absentees, and they too suffer the loneliness. The society engagement is limited since they are viewed as law enforcers also the policy define the extent to which they should interact with civilians.
Family and society requires devotion of time so as to interact and spend time together to ensure growth of one another and good co-existence. Some of the soldiers forfeit marriage life and society involvement due to the nature of their work, which they believe will hinder such union. These sacrifices are taken in order for them to serve us better, yet they risk their own happiness. The sacrifices the soldiers make are not theirs alone otherwise, they would not manage it. Their family members make such sacrifices too. Life of a soldier revolves around the military practices and restrain in the involvement of the public affairs. The nature of their work controls the family sizes they would want to keep, and it also affects interaction with others. Women have a direct effect to this sacrifice issue because they cannot be effective in their duties if the family responsibility is overburdening them.
Throughout the United States, feelings of conflict occupy many people and families. For persons in the military, theirs' is a greater concern considering other factors for living. Recent reports articles have recorded a drastic upsurge in the figure of military marriages. Even if, we only have 3 days vacation for our forces honeymoon and wedding, we can still utilize the most of those given days. Sacrifices have enables them to practice their activities within the given period. On average analysis, everything a soldier does must be in moderation compared with the rest of the people who has no restriction or code of conduct dictating their daily lives like the military.
While these soldiers go around the world, protecting the others and safeguarding the constitution, their families back at home face the injustice of the street just like the others. It is a sacrifice to protect others while you do not know the fate of your loved ones. Family is very important to anyone, and if one sacrifice the time to serve others them.
Health and life sacrifices
The soldiers duty take them to risky conditions, which can either, harm their health or make them lose the life. War torn areas, where American soldiers have been deployed such as Afghanistan has left so many soldiers killed or others maimed for life. Adverse weather conditions, which are hazardous to the life of the person, are every day conditions which some of the soldiers go through on a day-to-day activity. Life is made difficult for individuals and the family members who have to shoulder their loved ones in cases of health problems. Even though there is medical cover, some of the health conditions cannot be cured or resolved. The future of the soldiers is always marred by long-term health problems, which they could have contracted during the service. The old age are always troublesome to majority especially those who engaged in peacekeeping mission in worse affected regions.
The soldiers' sacrifices are rarely noticed or given deserving attention. Most cases we read on newspaper, listen from a radio, or watch the news on a television about the killing of soldiers. We never attach the news with the faces of humans. This normally leaves the family members with the agony and weight of the sacrifices the soldiers made. These sacrifices are taken in order for them to serve us better, yet they risk their own happiness. The sacrifices the soldiers make are not theirs alone otherwise they would not manage it, family members make such sacrifices too.
Sacrifice of potentials abilities
Soldiers get into the forces for different reasons. Some sees it as a source of employment while others as a dream fulfillment. These individuals have different potentials in life that they cannot exhaustively utilize, while in the forces. Due to the nature of their duties, having extra time to venture into other activities is limited. Venturing into some other financial activities like businesses are restricted due to time limitation; involvement with other social organization is also restricted. Self-fulfilling activities like sporting, social and community activities, and other form of leisure activities are also restricted. The soldiers sacrifice their times in doing things that safeguard the nation; this sacrifice of time is immeasurable and they cannot be compensated fully. The recognition of dreams needs forfeits. The question our soldiers normally answer on their duty is the sacrifices they are willing to offer. Let us give a patriotic compliment to the troops, appreciating them for their forfeit, letting them recognize that we are a concern and respect them for protecting our freedom. Freedom is never a given; we must continually battle for it so that the coming generation can also take pleasure in it. If the country one day just decides to put a stop to all armed forces operations, ultimately our freedom would be withdrawn from us. Look around the universe, it occurs all the time. There are tremendous people in our forces, and they are the ones who defend us. They merit respect. Almighty God blesses the energetic service members, and veterans.
The soldier who goes to fight in other regions sacrifices the reach and favorable culture practices of United States. These soldiers suffer harsh cultural and religious practices, which are practice in these foreign nations. Some of the soldiers have been executed due to these cultural differences. Women in the American armed forces, who are stationed in Afghanistan and other Arabs nations, are sacrificing the guard their Kevlar helmet gives to comply with Islamic ethnicity. These practices are said to protect their existence and save their lives during their duties. This change of identity in order to serve or perform your duty is a call for sacrifice for many. They have been demanded to cover their heads with a scarf known as hijab, so as to be accepted to stay in these nations. This is political correctness, which is creating havoc on the American military. These are sacrifices that affect the individuals so much since they involve changing lifestyle completely also adapting to some conditions, which are hazardous. These soldiers have to forfeit their cultural activities they use to enjoy before joining the forces. They have to form new culture, which take times to incorporate into life style.
Freedom of speech and conduct
As much as the law allows freedom of speech, the military has code of discretion, which controls them from expressing themselves anyhow. This form of constraints deters them from enjoying the freedom others enjoy. The military officer sacrifices the freedom of enjoying public involvement into activities like politics. They are not allowed to involve in political activities or state their allegiance in matters of national securities. Life is sacrifice in its way; however, the sacrifices the U.S. soldiers make are duty and compulsory in order to keep serving the nation under military.
In America, you have the provision to be an antiviolence advocate, but we should forever support our military troops for their sacrifices. They are battling for the right of an anti-supporter to say his or her opinion. In many countries, if an anti-supporter speaks of her or his opinion, they could be put in jail or executed by their authorities. Because soldiers struggle for you and me, we are given the chance to live our lives the way we dim fit. This is a good state, and gives us all so much. So many People pass on trying to make United States of America their home. Our country is considered the greatest country in the world and these are attributed to the sacrifices our soldiers have been making since immemorial. Having opportunities for all the people give us chances to have a better life (Jacobs). This never happened the easy way; there have been struggles to realize this status. Our forefathers had a vision. Some argued it was an unfeasible dream, but they ensured their dream our reality, and this is the reason we must not let them down. We do this by supporting and recognizing the efforts of our soldiers.
The luxurious life, which people tend to enjoy and properly plan for is a thing the military dream. The job jurisdictions make them to be alert at all times whether enjoyments are keep at a pace. The entertainment is also one that is controlled affairs of the soldier. Social life is supposed to be free without jurisdiction. The soldiers suffer much more is found to have violated social, which in normal cases will cause one a fine of few dollars, could cause a dismissal. They sacrifice the living standard because their jobs dictate where they can stay and what particular activities they are allowed to involve in. the soldiers sacrifice every bit of their living because they have to live according to the code of conduct given to them. Family life is constraint; since family involvement or participation dictates our living standards there is compromised due to the regulations (Henning, October 6, 2008). The sacrifices would have been worth it if they were being paid hugely; however, their pay also is limited thus controlling a lot of their activities.
The life style is checked in that everything is timetabled and must be adhered to, from the sleeping hours, eating habit, exercise practices, and social activities. Having uniform for identification are segregation factors and defining tactics of their existence. The military have life style, which is controlled and need to be adhered to as the provision states. Everybody does sacrifice, but the military sacrifices are selfless, and very important for existence of nations and its people. Their social, political, economical, and other aspects of life is control and monitored by the state. The social life style of an officer is always restricted and checked so as not to interfere with duty. The duty determines how you relate with your partners and other family members. This sometimes is a big call for young couples who need constant companion of one another so as to make a long lasting association and family. Economically the service control how you spend since the code of conduct dictates your activities. The U.S soldier is politically restricted from engaging in politics of the nations, and only allowed to protect the constitution of the nation.
Passion and desires
After joining the military, some of the passion and desires must be contained and others forgotten, in education pursuit studies must be related to military requirement thus blocking others from seeking educational knowledge, which is not applicable to their duties. One cannot involve in politics while still in the service or openly support a regime while still in office. Everything must be done in accordance to the provisions of the military. The will to decide what to do sometimes is denied since failure to follow the order no matter how consciously one disagrees with it is paramount to disciplinary actions. The desire to live a normal life like others is controlled; this is because all the officers live under some order and limits. Living under supervision means that you make sacrifices to leave in harmony with one another and the state (GateHouse). A soldier is a soldier and must follow the orders no matter the circumstances; this is a call of sacrifice which need having a passion for the job otherwise it could be very distressing. Desires cut across the human life style having restrictions need sacrifices to cope, and that is why the military normally make a lot of sacrifices in order to remain in force. The treatment as a different people of the same nation means they have to carry the responsibility of safeguarding and protecting the situations. This includes confrontations, which may involve a soldier and a civilian, or a soldier and a soldier they must know to control their anger and amicably resolve the situations without deterioration. These sacrifices sometimes seem so hard since these are trained combats; however, it is necessary to have and implement them since that is the call of duty.
Sometimes religious matters conflict with the military provisions this has led to some of the soldiers forsaking their faiths in order to serve the force well. Religious matters are considered as moral values while military are legal duties. It has been a debatable concept whether to lead legally or morally; however, when it comes to military no compromise. This is why people with certain religious beliefs find it very difficult to survive the military requirement and end up sacrificing or leaving the force. The will to decide what to do sometimes is denied since failure to follow the order no matter how consciously one disagrees with it is paramount to disciplinary actions. In an attempt to get nearer to the local residents, American female soldiers' peace- keeping in Afghanistan is expected to put on a Muslim headscarf when intermingling with civilians (Bungalow). Nevertheless, some inquiry whether the practice comprises cultural understanding or a form of conciliation that is degrading to America soldiers. This is one of the areas where religious sacrifices constrain the U.S soldiers. It is very important for the state to safeguard the soldiers when they go to areas with religious.
U.S soldiers sacrifice their times to serve and protect the citizen of the nation. Time is essential for everyone because it is one of the factors, which differentiate the poor and the rich. The soldier spend the best of their times devoting to secure people who are using the time to get richer and healthier. While people are enjoying their time with family members and relaxing the soldiers, are either in the field defending us or dying for people who rarely acknowledge their efforts. These people devote their times for the sake of the other people who are busy developing their lives (Brownlee). This the best sacrifice one can devote for another. The people and the government must respect and honor these individual so as to motivate them and give the spirit to continue protecting us. How can someone give you opportunity to be comfortable and know that you can go on with your duties without much of the worries? That should be given some considerations and honor.
