CRITICAL THINKING MEMORANDUM Critical Thinking Memorandum Critical thinking is the process of objectively analyzing and evaluating issues to form a judgment. When analyzing a problem, it is helpful to ask questions as to the goals. For example, think about the purpose or objective, the question or issue at hand, gather facts about the issue, reflect on the inferences produced, clarify the concepts and think about the implications. This breakdown is just another way to look at some considerations before making a decision critically. As a senior Non-commissioned Officer, the need for critical decision-making became a way of life. From making long-term logistical decisions to last-minute (life dependent) decisions based on enemy movement. The amount of critical thinking invested in these decisions varied on the amount of information at the time, and the experience (heuristics) had on the issue. One particular decision I was asked to make while deployed in Afghanistan involved the re- organization of holding cells for "Persons under U.S. control".

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
