Week 9 Discussion.docx - I served 25 years in the military...

This preview shows page 1 - 2 out of 2 pages.

I served 25 years in the military. The reason I state that is I changed my behavior often as I moved from place to place and worked with individuals from different cultures and backgrounds. We all had the common bond of being brothers/sisters in arms, but with each duty station, I served at brought forth changes. A few examples I had were in Germany. I was assigned to a Heavy Infantry unit. We were continually training, and everyone was required to be proficient in every inch of these substantial armored “beasts” we rode around in, or the crew would be vulnerable if they encountered a problem. This required me to learn about many cultures and be adaptable to the group/s I was working with since we had a vast variety of ethnicities. I left Germany and transferred to upstate New York and became part of a Light Infantry unit. These folks were the complete opposite; they didn’t ride anywhere, or if they did it was a short distance, and then we walked or parachuted in from there on.

    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.
