experience in the military allowed me to observe, experience, absorb, and understand how other cultures communicate, live, conduct business, and without accepting America popular culture activities. I was afforded the opportunity to visit more than 20 different countries through the military and witnessed firsthand the impact Americans have on globalization and spreading “American Culture” throughout their land and people. Although many analyzes and historians have argued about globalization and culture, a careful evaluation for diverse militaries suggests global popular culture is the most apparent realm. Soldiers and Family members will increase the global integration at a dramatically high pace for communication, transportation, and computer technology making the world more interdependent than ever. Foer makes this statement explicitly more related to those who become complacent in their own communities. “Other countries have greeted soccer with relative indifference. The Indian subcontinent and Australia come to mind. But the United States is perhaps the only place where a loud portion of the population actively disdains the game, even campaigns against it. The anti-soccer lobby believes, in the words of USA Today’s Tom Weir, “that hating soccer is more American than apple pie, driving a pickup, or spending Saturday afternoons channel surfing with the remote control.” (Foer 16) The military will continue to influence the differences and integrations for the migration of popular cultures and the effectiveness for globalization.

Communities are the consumers of American intellectual and artistic influences par excellence. Ferla makes the same connection as the military is linked to these countries mentioned, “The globalization of popular culture and its many and varied effects around the world. Frequently, this process has been driven and dominated by developed countries and their transnational companies. However, the peoples of Africa, Asia, Latin America, and the Caribbean have also appropriated and transformed European and North American cultural forms, infusing them with their own cultures and concerns.” (Ferla 6) The combination of interracial relationships and the open-minded families collectively joined through communities will take on new forms for understanding the effects for popular culture submission. Cultures dissimilar across the region intertwine through the combination of the military
