The basis of this presentation is to identify, explore, and elaborate the concerns pertaining to the traditional and complacent attitudes focused towards the importance and significance of holidays related to the Armed Forces Veterans of the United States of America. Conversely, there may be differences among the American citizenship that should be addressed.

“We wanted to showcase the different aspects of the community that we felt weren’t addressed, so this whole week we have been dealing with issues like helping children and youth, education and in this case; relationships.”-- Tony Gaskins, Jr.

“Americans need to support Veterans and Active Duty; because the new wave of separation is the threat to the United States’ promise of America. “

Cultural Differences

Due to the 'differences' in accountability efforts, diverse perceptions may cause events that may contradict each other. An elaboration of examples follows:

In comparison, the military member’s lifestyle, compared to that of an American citizen is abundantly different. Transition; the blend caused by having dependents while on base and when abroad. The understanding of religious intolerance and the freedom of expressing face value at the homeport in comparison to the human mind while performing as military personnel.

Who really has the greater freedom/Is the significant other to be perceived as a predator and why? Parents are supposed to nurture their offspring. Furthermore, for a fear of unwanted reprisal, some may not desire to respond to their presence besides with a “traditional” or safe (within their comfort zone) gift. In relation, the possibilities of appreciation are categorized personally-organizationally; “Love is a learned behavior, and you can’t show if you don’t know love.” According to sources, appreciation is a learned behavior, as well. Can one show appreciation if they don’t know appreciation?

Appreciation of Comfort


My personal experience, as a professional, is that of being exposed to ones whom do not understand certain concepts of appreciations. Appreciation of a mandated sacrifice: the type of sacrifice which makes classifies performance levels and experiences nearly literally unspeakable due to various the security levels now exploited throughout the American culture. Is the appreciation for the American security more obviously enjoyed when out of the continental United States?

The military are the policing entities of the world. “Security protects college student”-google. Adversely, most Americans openly express the hate of the Federal Government’s policies and required hand; which uses the Constitution and Government Statutes, in order to follow a suited structure. After fuzzing the writing, like a pair of off the market reading glasses; “Is it really possible to truly build a wall of love and security for the government military member? Or is it opposite distraction?”



Wars of origin; Quartering Act (having a soldier): The responsibility of a military member: to provide, directly to an American citizen. With the declared freedom, what will convince an American to provide an intimate comfort zone in order for the citizens to mingle; without causing an emotional or financial hardship?

Emotion and Appreciation: A Destined Marriage

Between the mouthy American and the disciplined military member; what type of emotional appreciation is feasible? The legitimate military member doesn’t have a holiday, nor should he. The citizen receives the holiday pay. In a sense, lifestyle intolerance is the answer. Similarly, do religions appreciate each other openly, if so by whom and what obreros? Does the requirement to appreciate each other’s religion cost money, because that is something America does not have [deficit amount]; Third World education in the second largest city, in the US...

A day off for the military: Pearl Harbor; 911. Can a military member be prosecuted by local and state laws; yes. Should that option be abolished? Local citizens do not ‘have to’ comply with Federal and military standards. I can sense an immediate smile, if relief from civilian strength right now; especially after experiencing a decade of hardship due to illegal activity I was personally exposed to while being housed near and with civilians and dependents. Consequently, American citizens exhibit activities: from drug usage (legal in some states-under proper regulation); to fighting for more funds and avenues, in order to receive more gratification while their “counterpart” is exposed to the dangers of the persona and various attitudes even existing.

After those years of honorable service, I’m rewarded with a scar on my face and chest (inflicted by the domestic counterpart), in addition to irreconcilable debt, homelessness and unemployment; without a passport to go back to work as before. What type of appreciation is capable of achieving its presence as an emotional or traditional relief?

In conclusion, throughout the lifespan of community leaders there are many opportunities to reflect and show the true relationships between the community and its nation. Consequently, some of these appreciative events involve valuing people in lieu of an idol structure or perceived myth.

The objective of this piece is to enable: thought, the processes of human development, and the evolution of being to be analyzed and taken as an accountable position, in reference to the traditions of holidays and other ‘methods’ (behaviors) of showing respect and gratitude towards the occasions of great significance; which relate to Americas history. Hopefully, this reflection, from an American military veteran’s point of view will assist.
