This class discusses the United States military. The first job of any military is to protect and defend. Therefore, the topic of shooting, death, and injury may come up during each lesson. I do not glamourize killing of anyone foreign, enemy, or citizen during the lesson. Every death is a loss. The main goal of this class is to answer questions focused on the history and goals of each branch- not the destruction that has happened in the past or present. As a parent of a military member who suffered injury when in combat, I understand fully the dangers of any military branch or risk a persontakes in service for their country.
