United Soldiers of America’s Vision Statement
The purpose of the United Soldiers of America (USA) is to provide outstanding assistance to military veterans and their families regardless of race, religion, gender, or ethnicity. Aid is provided to all veterans regardless of when they were in the military. We are committed to providing service with the dignity and respect deserved by all mankind.
After the Vietnam War many veterans were forgotten about and had a hard time readjusting to civilian life. They also had a great many mental issues along with drug addiction. The hope of the United Soldiers of America is that we can provide better care for the Soldiers who have served in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Five years from now, United Soldiers of America will be one of the largest Non-Profit Organizations dedicated to providing outstanding assistance to Veterans. We will accomplish this vision by expanding our services and focusing on not only the physical needs of veterans and their families, but on the mental needs. Sometimes the emotional damage from being in combat is more harmful than the visible wounds.
USA currently provides assistance to veterans and their families in Texas, Washington, and New York. Within the next five years we will focus on opening and another four service centers. The locations currently being considered are California, Georgia, Washington State, and Virginia. In order to accomplish this we will need to focus on advertising, recruitment for more volunteers, and additional funding. This will allow us to reach even more veterans.
The VA has offered to act as a Fiscal Sponsor to supplement resources that we have been unable to offer. This will help with the financial support for USA and easy access to medical assistance for veterans. I am confident that this is a partnership that will greatly enhance our ability to provide the…...

Causes of African Immigration to the United States of America

...over the past few years. The United States of America, like many Western and Middle East countries has become one of the major destinations of immigrants. African countries hold the upper hand among the immigrant source of America. The great collection of immigrants include refugees, people came for higher education, those in diplomatic services, skilled labors, athletes, efficient scientists and physicians. What are the factors that encourage or compel people to join the deluge of migration is a vast subject for research. Unlike the other countries the growing number of immigrants from African countries is entering the stream of immigration to United States. The history of African migration begins with slavery. The post war political economy considerably promoted the African immigrants to prefer United States as their major destination. United States has been highly benefited for decades by the African immigrants to gain all its achievements. The nation today includes people from all parts of the world, with a variety of race, complexion, beliefs and ethnicity which have made the nation an agglomeration of various cultures. The noteworthy reasons for this inundation could be categorized as historic reasons, globalization, civil wars and human rights violations, labor shortage in The US, immigration policies, and economic instability in home land. Historic elements contribute to migration The condition that brought Africans to the land of America was entirely different......

Buffalo Soldiers in America

...Buffalo Soldiers in America A buffalo soldier was an African American serving in one of the U.S. Army's African American units. The term buffalo soldier comes from an Indian term that described the resemblance between the soldier hair and a buffalo's head hair. It is unclear from which the term originated in the Cheyenne, Apache, or Kiowa tribe. It is still unclear whether the Indians meant respect or disrespect by using this term for them. There were many recruits waiting to be enlisted but black officers were hardly heard of. African Americans were eager to enlist as the army gave them the chance for social and economic prosperity something difficult to achieve in a society that was all but closed to them. Many knew nothing of the world outside the world beyond the city or plantation they had spent their whole life on. They could not go back now they were free but many did not have skills to go forward or a place to go. So many felt that the army would be a new home to others it was the adventure of being sent west to help tame an untamed wilderness. This could lead them to their great dream the dream of building a new life on their own land. The Buffalo Soldiers wore the same uniforms as the rest of the U.S. Army of the same time period. The only difference was due to delivery times. New uniforms and equipment were delivered in the order of the units. 1st Cavalry received the first shipments then the 2nd and so on. That meant that the 9th and 10th Cavalry received their......

Soldiers of America

...own lives and not the lives of others. They do not understand the sacrifice that a soldier is taking in order to fight for our country. We as Americans do not realize what the men in war are going through and the hardships they have to face while fighting in the war. In Sebastian Junger’s third book War, he has witnessed and described what US military soldiers are going through while fighting in the Korengal Valley. He describes in his book the mental stabilities of a soldier and the environment they have to live in for a year. From a third person point of view, it seems like Junger is trying to tell us something. I believe that he is trying to tell us that Americans do not take advantage of their luxuries unlike the soldiers in the Korengal Valley. In the book, it states that they are getting shot at every minute of every day, they do not have the same luxuries as we do in America, and they have very little contact with their loved ones back at home. In Junger’s third book, he describes the soldiers’ living conditions while staying at the KOP. He tells us that the soldiers do not have as much running water that they want to use. They can only use a certain amount of water that is needed for each soldier. Half the time they don’t take showers at all because they know it is not enough water to fulfill their needs. Junger tells us that during the summer were the most dreadful time for the soldiers. He says that during that time the men would get really lazy. They would sleep......

Literature Review United States of America

...Literature review United states of America All the countries in the world are continuously striving for rapid economic growth and as a result they are inviting more and more investments by allowing foreign investors to invest in their land. There are several factors that help or hinder the economic growth of a country, and the factors, that are often identified as stimulants (World Investment Report UNCTAD, 1994) for a country’s growth are: (1) Large amounts of investment capital, (2) Advanced Technologies, (3) Highly skilled labor, (4) Well-developed transportation and communication infrastructure, (5) Stable and supportive political and social institutions, (6) Low tax rates, and (7) Favorable regulatory environment. Differences in the growth rates of the countries are explained by the differences in the endowments or levels of these factors (Dondeti and Mohanty, 2007). FDI has long been recognized as a major source of technology and know-how to developing countries. Indeed, it is the ability of FDI to transfer not only production know- how but also managerial skills that distinguishes it from all other forms of investment, including portfolio capital and aid. While foreign portfolio investment may, in some cases, contribute to the capital formation in a developing country, often, the capital flows via this route are limited, and above all, they do not provide the advanced technologies needed to compete in the world markets. FDI can accelerate growth in......

Diversity in the United States of America

...Diversity has been the foundation of the United States. Diversity is not limited to race, gender, or religion; it includes age and disabilities as well. I have never thought of those as aspects of diversity. I do see them in that light since taking this course and I now realize the extent of the differences in the population of America. Without that variety our country would not be as magnificent as it is. I, myself, am about as American as I could get. I am a White female of no particular religion. I am neither young nor old. I have no disabilities. I am lucky that I do not suffer from discrimination. I am aware that, despite many advances in society, there is still a fair amount of discrimination in the United States. As we move into the future I hope that education will bring us to a post-racial society. My hope is that all people will learn about all types of lifestyles and through that education fear and hatred will be eliminated. While taking this class I have become aware of many more aspects and depths of prejudice and discrimination than I had ever thought of in the past. I was well aware of race, gender, and religion as aspect of a person that could be discriminated against. I did not, however, think of age as something to discriminate against a person because of. I have learned that there are many places that a person may have a hard time being accepted if they are a little older. Many jobs do not want to invest in a person they do not feel is a long term......

Articles of Confederation of the United States of America

...Articles of Confederation The Articles of Confederation was the first constitution of the United States of America. The Articles of Confederation were first drafted by the Continental Congress in Philadelphia Pennsylvania in 1777. This first draft was prepared by a man named John Dickinson in 1776. The Articles were then ratified in 1781. The cause for the changes to be made was due to state jealousies and widespread distrust of the central authority. This jealousy then led to the emasculation of the document. As adopted, the articles provided only for a "firm league of friendship" in which each of the 13 states expressly held "its sovereignty, freedom, and independence." The People of each state were given equal privileges and rights, freedom of movement was guaranteed, and procedures for the trials of accused criminals were outlined. The articles established a national legislature called the Congress, consisting of two to seven delegates from each state; each state had one vote, according to its size or population. No executive or judicial branches were provided for. Congress was charged with responsibility for conducting foreign relations, declaring war or peace, maintaining an army and navy, settling boundary disputes, establishing and maintaining a postal service, and various lesser functions. Some of these responsibilities were shared with the states, and in one way or another Congress was dependent upon the cooperation of the......

United States of America V. Angevine

...Case: United States of America v. Angevine `````````````````````````````````````````````` Question 1: How did the police find this illegal material? Professor Angevine’s wife tipped the authorities of her husband’s activities. Officers from the Stillwater, Oklahoma Police Department seized the computer and turned it over to a computer expert who used special technology to retrieve the data that had remained latent in the computer's memory despite Professor Angevine attempt to erase the pornographic files. Question 2: Did the police obtain a search warrant before conducting this search? Yes, with the cooperation of Professor Angevine's wife, officers from the Stillwater, Oklahoma Police Department obtained a search warrant to look for child pornography on his University computer. Question 3: Then why wasn’t this search illegal under the 4th Amendment? Why didn’t the court hold this evidence to be inadmissible under the exclusionary rule? The Fourth Amendment guarantees the right of people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers and effects against unreasonable searches and seizures. To establish a violation of the Fourth Amendment, however, a defendant must prove that he has "a legitimate expectation of privacy" in the place searched. This, in turn, requires defendant to show both that he has "a subjective expectation of privacy in the area searched" and that "that expectation must be one that society is prepared to recognize."

United Way of America 2011

...Study: United Way of America, 1992 Prepared by Dr. Martha Dede Spring, 2008 A MATTER OF GOVERNANCE: UNITED WAY OF AMERICA, 1992 Organization Thumbnail United Way of America (UWA) was incorporated in 1932 with the mission “[t]o improve lives by mobilizing the caring power of communities”. Since, UWA has been a significant constituent in the flywheel of American philanthropy. Headquartered in Alexandria, Virginia, UWA is comprised of 1,400 dues-paying and another 700 non dues-paying affiliates which, in aggregate, raise about $3.1 billion annually, and fund approximately 50,000 service-providing health and human service agencies nationwide. (1) In 1992, UWA President William Aramony brought the organization to its knees for, variously, being a “sloppy President”, a serial womanizer, of exercising “poor judgment” (2) and of “haphazard” management practices. (3) Brief Chronology In late 1991 and extending into February 1992, the UWA Board of Governors ordered an independent internal investigation of long-time UWA President William Aramony for allegations of misuse of funds, fraud, tax evasion and illegal operation of satellite businesses. The investigation emerged in response to information provided (anonymously) by UWA staffers to LaSalle D. Leffall Jr., Chair of UWA’s Executive Committee, to inquiries from a Washington Post investigative reporter, and to demands from several UWA affiliate officials that Aramony be removed. At that time, several United......

Women’s Social Mobility in the United States of America

...Women’s Social Mobility in the United States of America We live in a world full of obstacles where it’s said that the one who is born poor will remain poor. Like many other country in the world the United States of America is also struggling with the difficulties regarding social mobility. The American dream is that the poorest suburban person can be a rich person too and America is the home and land of unlimited possibilities. The main idea is that if you work hard enough you can make it to the top. Is it true for everyone? Can women make it to the top? But before I start my essay on Women’s Social Mobility in the United States of America let me clarity certain definitions. The concept of social mobility has two main meanings: a) in the narrow sense, represents the moving in a stratification system, b) broadly refers to the space movement (territorial mobility) and / or change of employment (or mobility fluctuation labor). Studies (theoretical and empirical) say that social mobility can be placed in three categories: - those using a hierarchy criteria, tracking movements between strictly hierarchical layers. It’s the American tradition, which uses the social status as a hierarchical criteria. - those who use as a classification criteria exclusively the individual’s occupation, this leading to the establishment of a social space consisting some number of socio-professional categories: tradition - those using as a criteria social classes and social strata.

A Comparison of the Founding Documents for the United States of America

...A Comparison of the Founding Documents for the United States of America Liberty University A Comparison of the Founding Documents for the United States of America This document will provide a brief comparison and synopsis of some of the most important writings of our time: The Declaration of Independence, Thomas Jefferson’s letter to the Danbury Baptists, and the U.S. Constitution. Also, this will be an analysis of what I believe the signers of the Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution thought about the separation of church and state, as well as God from government. The Declaration of Independence was written on July 4, 1776 by Thomas Jefferson. Its purpose was to officially separate the colonies from Great Britain and the tyrant of a king. In doing so, Jefferson lists out 27 reasons why they should separate, with the three main points being, “All men are created equal…, All men have some rights given to them by God…, That among these rights are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness” (Carr, 2015). Therefore when the government infringes on these rights, the people of the county have the right to make changes or get rid of it, in this case, the King and Great Britain altogether. Some examples of the King of Great Britain’s wrongdoings were that “he interfered with the people’s rights to self-govern and for a fair judicial system… imposed taxes without their consent… and cut off trade with all parts of the world” (Jefferson, 2015). The end result......

Boyscouts of America vs. the United Way

...sexual orientation information.  The case involving the Boy Scouts of America and the United Way detailed in Managing Human Resources (pp 150) provides an excellent example of the ethical and realistic issues that can arise surrounding this now common lifestyle. ​James Dale prided himself on instilling self-reliance and leadership in children’s’ lives as an assistant scoutmaster for the Boy Scouts of America (BSA).  After 12 years, this veteran volunteer was expelled from the BSA after they learned that he was gay because of his sexual orientation.  Though the boy scouts teach young men to stand up for what is right, they did not have any anti-discrimination laws intact to protect homosexual volunteers.  Dale, instead, turned to rely on the courts for help.  During the court case, the state court initially ruled that Dale should be able to return as a scoutmaster, indicating that one’s sexual orientation does not drive the ability to help the scouts, but the BSA did not accept this answer.  Instead, the BSA turned to the Supreme Court to get permission to release Dale of his scoutmaster duties. ​The United Way had been involved with the BSA for numerous years and provided support funding for various Boy Scout activities and programs.  Overall, the United Way has protected its own employees and those it worked with by instilling a policy protecting employees against sexual discrimination.  Although the United Way leaves the ultimate decision for antidiscrimination laws up to......

Persisting Racial Inequality in the United States of America

...“Persisting Racial Inequality In The United States of America” When Thomas Jefferson and America’s founding fathers drafted the constitution, they envisioned a life of freedom and equality for themselves and every other citizen of the United States. Their vision had a huge caveat: only white men were created equally and held inherent rights. Our founding fathers immediately ingrained discrimination into the bones of this country and set the stage for years of struggle to achieve equal opportunity. After 185 years of denying equal social and economic opportunities to minorities and women, America’s leaders chose to act. The actions of John F. Kennedy and Lyndon B. Johnson brought forward a plan called affirmative action: to address the under-representation of qualified minorities and women in higher education and the workplace. With a foundation that contains discrimination in its core, affirmative action did not come without controversy. It has been the central topic of notable Supreme Court cases such as University of California Regents v. Bakke, Grutter v. Bollinger, and Fisher v. University of Texas. Many who oppose affirmative action argue that race-conscious programs lead to reverse discrimination and group preferences over individual merit. Through arguments, data and research, it will be shown that affirmative action is indeed an effective remedy for addressing racial inequality in higher education and other institutions. Without it in this current time, large......

Homeless in the United States of America

...HOMELESS IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA So who exactly are Homeless? According to the Stewart McKinney Act (1994)[1], a person is considered as homeless if he/she is not able to acquire a “fixed”, “regular” and “adequate nighttime residence” and has a primary nighttime residence that is either used as a place to accommodate people on temporary basis, e.g. motels, rehabilitation centers, shelter homes, etc., or a place that is intended to be used as an institution, e.g. schools, hostels, etc., or a place that is not intended to be used as a nighttime residence (temporary or permanent) i.e. places like public parks, bus stops, subways, streets, etc. So this concludes our definition of Homeless. Now we shall take a look at some statistics obtained through reliable national data sources. Speaking broadly, people face homelessness because they cannot afford suitable housing. In fact, homelessness is clearly visible in urban areas of the country, where people lag enough resources to meet their housing requirements and eventually end up homeless. Homelessness can attributed to lack of money, higher living costs, scarcity of economic residence, etc. Moreover, data gathered by the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development, through point-in-time count shows that; a) There are 610,042 people facing the problem of homelessness on any given night in America[2] i.e. almost 19 people in 10,000 will be suffering from Homelessness. b) Of these homeless people, 222,197......

United Way of America

...A charity organization need internal control to ensure that all the resources are properly utilized to achieve organization goals and varies projects. In order to reduce financial risk such as theft, internal control plays an important role. According to the case, the business process of nonprofit organizations is usually not well regulated. In my opinion, a nonprofit organization can implement the following controls to ensure transparency and accountability in its operations. 1. Segregation of duties. From what I learned from the case, the staffs that took money out of the United Way of America were served in a position for both authorization and recording. In general, they wrote checks to themselves and then adjust the financial records. Segregation of duties is the economic and efficient way to against those types of fraud. No single individual should be allowed to both authorize and record. 2. Documentation. All transactions, especially financial transactions, have to be recorded properly with all the supplemental documents. Nonprofit organizations should not only record any changes to their business process but also document the reason behind those changes. 3. Policy enforcement. Not like a normal business, a nonprofit organization usually does not have any written down business policies or code of conducts. Most of the nonprofits ignore this control because of their relatively small size. However, I think this control is also a key to prevent fraud. A good ethical......

There are also three devolved powers outside of the capital, located in Belfast, Cardiff and Edinburgh (the three capital cities of Ireland, Wales and Scotland respectively). There are also a number of islands that are constitutionally tied to the United Kingdom constitution, but that are not part of the UK. They are the bailiwicks (headed by a bailiff, appointed by the crown to administer) of Jersey and Guernsey (to the south of the UK) and also the Isle of Man, which is off the north-east coast of the British mainland.
