  1. @moorhead212, thank you for your time and help. Cheers all!!
  2. Can anybody see if I was even on this board (Rodrigo Cortes), probably not but just want to make sure.
  3. My flight physical was resubmitted, but WITHOUT the COL findings. I need help submitting them via AERO.
  4. PLEASE HELP.Greetings all, this is all so much input, I love it. I heard luofynerd took 2+ years, I know where your coming from!! Long story short, 2 years ago, optometrist at my 1st Class 1A gives me DQ (keratoconus,"KC"), then, I get cleared from a COL Army Ophthalmologist, 3 cornea specialists, 2 FS AND I still have heard nothing from Rucker. I was 31 when I started and 33 in March. Who do I need to call? I implore any advice. Thank you for your time. 209.470.1819. P.s. all of them said I did not have KC
  5. Hey there I am almost in your same exact situation (the Rucker Vortex). Could you please respond back, maybe even text to make it easier? 209.470.1819. Are you AD or Civ. How did you get on base. If I need to go down there, I will in a heart beat, please help.

  7. Hey all, I'm trying to get a better understanding of the intervals of time. How soon after your Battalion Board did you do your flight physical and after that, when did Rucker have your phys. results. What was the time frame from Battalion to Board ready? Thanks all, it's been 2 years and I'm still fighting.
  8. You lost me at the first sentence. For you this story may be awesome, but these officers have seen it all. Always avoid colloquialisms. I would recommend going to your local community college and have the tutors help you out. Avoid using big words to make your essay stand out, if you do use them, use them well. Keep fighting, it shows how bad you want it. Pax.
  9. Congrats all who have been accepted and patience to those who are still waiting. Can somebody PM a pic of the results?
  10. Go to school!! This is a critical time where you will learn about life and mature as an adult. With age comes wisdom, trust me.
  11. Greetings ladies and gentlemen. Unfortunately, the optometrist in my flight phys. misdiagnosed me with Keratoconus. This setback has caused me to miss the board because I had to get a second opinion. Does anybody know how long it takes Rucker to get this info. I'm afraid that time is going to slip away. I'm ready to serve.
  12. Was just thinking about July and how excited I am. That got me reading over everything I have done so far and now and it is so surreal that it is now completely out of my hands. I have done my best and given it all that I can and in order to get a sense of how bad I want it, I thought I'd post one of my drafts of "Why I want to be an Army WOFT Aviator." See you all in July, Godspeed!!! “I shall pass through this world but once. Any good therefore that I can do or any kindness that I can show to any human being, let me do it now. Let me not defer or neglect it, for I shall not pass this way again.” -Stephen Grellet WHY I WANT TO BE AN ARMY WOFT AVIATOR The quote above embodies the spirit of my desire to become an Army Aviator. As I pass through this world, I want to know that I used my talents and gifts to their fullest potential. I strongly believe that we each have a duty to serve not only our nation, but each other as well. I also believe that if I do not utilize my gifts and talents, I deny myself both the opportunity to achieve excellence and the opportunity to contribute to the greater good in this world. To me there is no greater honor than to be called upon by my country. Therefore, it is my duty to excel in life with all my potential, to never accept defeat, and lead those that follow. Compiling my packet has been a humbling experience that has made me realize that this program is not for everyone. I am fortunate enough to be blessed with the physical and mental tools that allow me to participate in such an elite program. As a professional opera singer I have learned that a high level of excellence can only be achieved through constant daily focus and dedication. I have excelled as a musician and am now ready to use that same dedication and commitment to excellence as an Army Aviator. The words of author John Steinbeck compare the helicopter pilot to a musician: “They are truly musician...they play their controls like music.” The Army Aviator is not only a musician in the sky, but also a modern-day warrior. Virtually every civilization has created a class of warriors and as a Judo student, I have learned some of the teachings and philosophies of the Samurai. At the end of each session, I was taught to meditate and reflect on my actions. This mentality gives me the prowess of a warrior. No matter how difficult my opponent may be or how devastating the defeat, I have the courage and tools to aid me in victory. It is in my nature as a person to improve and it is my duty as a warrior to never accept defeat. Being an Army Aviator, I am not only an Army of One, but I will be surrounded by others who live by the same code and who strive for excellence. In a leadership role, I see myself excelling because I believe in the teachings implemented by the U.S. Army’s Soldier’s Creed and Schofield’s Definition of Discipline. I know that following these teachings makes me a better person and creates a template for leadership. Throughout my life, I have learned from many experiences. As a teacher and mentor, many people have come to me with questions that I too have faced. Now that I have learned from experience, I can reply with confidence and guidance and I find great satisfaction in being able to help and lead others. As I look back at my accomplishments, I want to find peace in knowing that my hard work and dedication placed me as one who is “Above the Best” and that I fully applied myself. I am ready to find out what I am truly capable of. It is my duty to become an Army Aviator and a Warrant Officer. I am ready to excel in life and ready for the challenges in becoming a better person and a better leader. Sincerely, Rodrigo Cortes
