Statement Of Purpose: Saving American Veterans
One of my most beloved volunteering experiences happened through a program that helps celebrate American Veterans, the program is named Corvettes for Vets. I have happily served my community through this event every year since my Freshman year. During this program I help to establish a clean and peaceful environment; I enjoy serving my community and I especially enjoy serving those who have fought to ensure the freedoms I enjoy daily.

    One of my most meaningful service opportunities was volunteering in the Utah Special Olympics last June. I spent the morning and early afternoon managing the Track and Field events of the Summer Games with friends and leaders from my church. This experience gave me a welcome change of perspective and an opportunity to focus on something greater than myself. On this day, I had the privilege of spending time with some of the kindest people I have ever met.…

    My biggest community activity is for Special Olympics of New Jersey. My family and I attend many of the events for SONJ including the Summer Games. I started volunteering by working and playing with the athletes. The area we staffed was where the athletes came to take a break and play with carnival-like games. The ages ranged from little kids to adults. It was fun putting smiles on their faces when you told them they won! It showed me we aren’t any different than them. They still like to do sports and have fun. They love to win prizes as do we. They just have disabilities that make them special. Over all volunteering for SONJ is a fantastic experience and in my opinion every boy and…

    You keep walking and then you look away as if there is nothing you can do, hoping that someone else will be able to help. You know that someone needs to help out but who? It is time to give back and make a difference in the lives of Veterans. There are many things about leaving the military for a degree that can be a scary experience. Three of the hardest situations that ever occurred to me is firstly, leaving the military to enter school, secondly doing nothing for someone in need and accepting a support system like other Veterans. As an outcome of these life lessons and not being able to compete for a job once out of the military, I understand the reason for higher education and helping out a Veteran in need.…

    Volunteering has driven me to becoming a better person. It has taught me essential life skills that will follow my footsteps for the rest of my life. I volunteer to give back to a community that has given me so much. The opportunities I have received throughout my life has given me motivation to be involved in my community. I am grateful for the help I received from others. I have always been challenged by members of my community to go above and beyond the expectations. Without the extra push, I would not be where I am today.…

    I volunteer in my community whenever I get the opportunity. For example, I helped students get to school safely and I helped out around the school. I volunteered at the public library to help younger children. I now see it is hard work to get children focused and help them not make a big mess, but I enjoyed helping them in any way I can. Volunteering at the public library also taught me about patience. Not everything went exactly how I planned it out, but at the end it still worked out. My time at the library also taught me about effort.…

    I serve the community through many different ways. I volunteer to help with things going on around the community, for example, I have signed up to help with registration for a race that was going on at a local gym. I have also contributed in helping kids and adults with special needs. I helped at Farm, teaching these people how to ride horses and communicate with others. Riding horses helped them learn how to use their body more efficiently. I feel as all of us that had the chance to contribute in helping them changed these adults and kids lives. They also changed ours on how we look at people. At the farm I also have taught at horse camp with the 8 and under kids. Being a counselor isn’t as easy as I thought it would be. You really have to teach the kids good communication with others around them and also some rules and morals that they will hopefully carry on in life. Like, forgiving each other, and not to hold grudges against one another.…

    Have you had any volunteer experiences and, if so, what did you like about participating? Give at least one example of what you liked. I have volunteered with Canterbury United Methodist Church on a mission trip and the Birmingham Zoo. When I volunteered with Canterbury, we went on a mission trip to Asheville, North Carolina for a week during the summer. I had the opportunity to travel to another city, in a different state, to help those who are less fortunate and live in harsh conditions. Seeing the harsh conditions that some people live in was very eye-opening for me because it really made me realize how fortunate, not only I, but the rest of my community is. I loved helping the people in Asheville because I knew that it is something they…

    The years I spent in middle school and high school have opened my eyes to the field of Social Work. I volunteered whenever I got the chance. I was in Student Council and from that, I donated a lot of my time to help with that and other organizations. Throughout those years, I was rewarded my senior year with an award for the most community service hours. My father works for the Michigan State Police, and through him, I volunteered with a lot of organizations through NCRESA. Halloween Hallow, Santa’s story book, and Kids Day were all different events that I volunteered for an absolutely loved. Now, I am a junior and I have still kept busy with volunteering. My freshmen year, taking SW100, we were required to do 15 hours of community service. I volunteered my 15 hours at the Marquette Jacobetti Veterans Center. Volunteering there has very much impacted my life. Whenever I went to see the veterans I was so thankful to them. Listening to their stories has been one of my favorite volunteer memories. In fact, my older sister Jennifer and I are thinking about going and talking to the volunteer coordinator to see if we can come back and continue. Another activity is Northern’s Make a Difference Day which has always been a great experience. Seeing how grateful those who we raked yards for were was truly wonderful. I will continue with Make a Difference Day! My sophomore year, I signed up through NMU’s volunteer center…

    It is important to keep honoring our veterans because they have sacrificed so much for this country. Also we honor them because we need to tell them how appreciative we are of their dutiful service to our country. Even the president honors our veterans. Each year the president or one of his representatives lays a wreath on The Tomb of The Unknown Soldiers in the Arlington Cemetery every Veterans Day to honor those veterans. Even though the first unknown soldier was laid to rest there on Armistice day on the year of 1921 this ceremony still continues. This is one way that shows just how important honoring our veterans…

    Since eighth grade I have volunteered regularly at Prodisee Pantry, a local food bank that gives out boxes of food every week. Prodisee was the first place I volunteered on my venture. Then I started to serve at my old middle school on Tuesdays, usually in the science department where I could offer the most assistance. From there I began leading a small group for middle schoolers at one of my churches on Wednesday nights. However, that was the extent of my service for the first two months of the year, but soon I did something completely new to remind me of the purpose of the 365…

    Being A Veteran Essay

    • 448 Words
    • 2 Pages

    Have you ever considered the hard work our soldiers went through to keep our country safe, and how hard they had to work to protect us from danger? Have you ever thought of what a Veteran really is? Many thoughts race through my head when I hear the word Veteran, and I’m sure that in the past you’ve heard the word Veteran more than once. The Veteran may have been one of your teachers or even someone on a local news station, but have you ever considered what being a Veteran really means? To me, being a Veteran means you are someone who is brave, kind, and much more. Veterans selflessly defend the country that we call our home, and without them, life couldn’t be the same. The many wars they’ve fought for us and all of the time Veterans put into keeping out invaders or possible threats, allowed the United States of America to grow. They were and still are the building blocks that made the Land of Freedom flourish.…

    While health policy may seem nebulous and difficult to grasp for some, we can see the actions that transpire from implementation of health care policy every day. An example of policy in action is the Department of Veteran’s Affairs. The Department of Veteran’s Affairs operates many programs that assist returning service members and service member leaving the military with different programs to ease their transition back into civilian life. The Department of Veterans Affairs also runs a health care organization that is inefficient and untimely in providing care, but often the only access to care for many veterans. This essay will attempt to review some of the current issues in veterans’ health care delivery, how policy relates and results in…
