I am using chapter 9 for the core assessment and case study. The thesis is to describe how war is affecting our military in the aspects of training, beliefs, values, and norms as we have evolved in technology and the way we fight today. I will use my past experience and knowledge I have gained while serving in the military for 22 years and operating in conflicts dating back to Desert Shield/Desert Storm and from the ranks of Private to First Sergeant to attempt in relating to how military culture has changed. Soldiers have evolved in killing since the Civil War through marksmanship training to improve psychological warfare today. Militarism will continue to affect American military culture and our sociology. Our society is accustom to technology and will attempt to sacrifice trillions of dollars’ worth of equipment in order to protect the human factor of war. “Out of a nation of 300 million Americans, not enough volunteers could be found to significantly expand the size if the army. At the same time, the nation continued to spend billions on weapon systems it does not need. This is militarism.” (Lewis, 2011) 9

    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.
