In too many ways to list. Both good and bad. I will list a few

below. You may want to research them or pick new ones to research.

1.) Apollo moon landing. The greatest achievement of humans. 2.)

Involvement in WWII - The USA changed the outcome of the war. 3.)

WWI involvement. 4.) Cold War with Russia(USSR). This one involves

both countries. The cold war was scary and could have ended the

world. However, the cold war itself helped the world by forcing

both superpowers to research and create new technology that changed

the world. Ex. Space race and moon landing. 5.) Funding. The USA

funds many projects to better countries all around the globe.

However, because of misuse of funds and funding the wrong groups

this one might fall into the bad category or maybe the good. Who

really knows. Take feeding the North Koreans. It is a great idea

not to let people go hungry, but many people see it as helping the

nasty/crazy leader of N. Korea remain in power. And one day he

might use his newly gained nuclear weapons to kill more people that

would have died from hunger. Who knows what the right way to deal

with this leader is. I know if the name of his country was Iraq we

would already be invading. Like I said there are many more items.

Have Fun, Chris.
