This is my "Will you read over my essay?" thread. There are many like it but this one is mine.
I use the word effectively a lot because I was trying to drive home that I would be an effective soldier. Should take out few of my uses of it?
Why I would be an Excellent Candidate for Warrant Officer Flight Training
I would be an excellent candidate for Army aviation because I have a passion for aviation and want to be of service to my country. My critical thinking skills and ability to operate well under stress would give me the needed abilities to operate an aircraft safely and effectively. Those same skills would also make me an effective and strong leader in the ranks.
Aviation is one of mankind’s greatest achievements. The science and technical work that goes into making aircraft fly is fascinating to me. I have a desire of wanting to understand how things work. That desire of curiosity lead me to become interested in engineering at an early age. Engineering is the basis of understanding how the science and practicality of things intersect. I decided to study mechanical engineering because it is the foundation of aerospace engineering, and therefore would give me the foundation of skills that I will need to be an Army aviator.
Warrant Officers are soldiers described as being masters of their profession in their field of expertise. As a Warrant Officer aviator I will need to be a master of aviation on my air frame. When I am learning about something new, I put a true dedication into finding out as much information about the subject as I can. I do this so that I can effectively know the process for how it works. I would use this eagerness and ardent curiosity as a Warrant Officer in order to master my air frame. This means going beyond what the minimums are, and putting in extra work to be ahead of the game.
Aviators in the Warrant Officer Corps are soldiers and leaders first. I am capable of adapting quickly to new surroundings and scenarios, this would help me in the field to quickly and efficiently solve problems and obstacles should any arise. This would also help me to effectively lead my fellow soldiers and help them with their goals in order that the overall mission is accomplished with great success. Another quality that I have is knowing my strengths and weaknesses. Because of this I know when to pass the lead over to another person who is more qualified. A good leader must also be a good follower. My engineering background makes me a detail oriented person, which is a good quality to have for following directions.
Serving in the Army as Warrant Officer aviator would be the best way to combine my passion for aviation with the sense of duty I have for my country. I strongly believe in President Kennedy’s words of “Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country.” I believe that being of service to your country in order to improve it is one of the greatest honors a person can do. It is something that pays reverence to the men and women who did their part before you, and builds a stronger foundation for the men and women who will do their part after you. I embrace this duty and will never shirk my share of responsibility to serve my country and help my country excel. This is why I would be an excellent candidate for Warrant Officer Flight Training.
