  1. I'm looking for some feedback on my WOFT essay that I wrote. Its only the first draft but I need brutal honesty. If its complete garbage or not what the board is looking for I need to know. I'm pretty new to the army and am a pfc in the infantry at the moment. I've completed a year training cycle with my unit and have been to JROTC. Ill be going to air assault soon to be more competitive with my woft packet. Most of my experience is outside the army. I'm 30 years old with a lot of experience with other jobs. Why I want to be a Warrant Officer Stagna
  2. I have written out a few rough drafts and revisions to my essay and had some peers give me advice. This is what I have so far. If you have the time please give it a read and give some insight or advice on what I should change, add, remove, etc. Some background on me before the essay. I am a 68W, PFC with a year and a half of service. I was a holdover at airborne school (injury before I even started) for 8 months. I just got to my unit a couple weeks ago, and my leadership is all for sending me to do greater things. I have not taken the SIFT yet, but I have a study guide and
  3. Hello everyone, I mostly am a lurker for information here, but I’ve gotten to the point where I’ve put together most of my packet. This is my “Why I want to be a Army Aviator” essay as of the moment and I am constantly going through and making changes as I see fit. If any of you could review my essay and give any feedback, it would be greatly appreciated. “Why I want to be an Army Aviator” Whether it be from my experiences working in hydro seeding, construction and various positions working in a restaurant, or being a competing member of a sports team, I k
  4. Be as brutal as possible. Why I want to be an Army WOFT Aviator Serving my country as a Soldier, leader and aviator will be one of the greatest honors of my life. My mother and step-father were Army officers until retirement and my grandfather was a Soldier during WWII. Growing up in this environment instilled in me the Army’s values and the desire to serve. I admire the duty, loyalty and personal courage it takes to be a Soldier and know that I will be successful in this role. My leadership skills, ability to adapt under pressure, and technical acumen demonstrate t
  5. Hey all, I'm nearing the end of completing my WOFT Packet (got a couple things on hold right now due to COVID-19) and have been trying to get my UF 3.2 Summary perfect. I would appreciate if anyone could take a look at my summary: I look back with fond memories of my first air show at MacDill Air Force Base in Tampa Florida. Watching the Blue Angels fly in their famous diamond formation close overhead was all I needed to see as a child- from that moment on I knew I wanted to fly. If you had asked me then, I would have said all a pilot did in the military was eat, sleep and fly. I now know
  6. ***Update*** I believe I have a better Idea of what the essay is supposed to be now, thank you all for your suggestions on this version! Posting my edited version below in the comments. Hey all, wondering if I could get a little feedback on my essay. I looked at the Army Writing Style publication per a recommendation on another post and made a few tweaks, but want to make sure I do the best I can on it. Why I want to be an Army Aviator Together my personal, professional, EMT, and volunteer Search and Rescue experiences fervently ignited my desire to become an Army aviator. My
  7. All, I am a civilian with no prior military experience currently working on my WOFT packet. Can someone tell me if I am on the right track with my WOFT essay? I wrote this early on so I can revise it over time and am checking to see if this is on the right track to a solid essay. Trying to keep it down to 3 concise paragraphs per some of the helpful information found throughout this great forum. Its in very rough form so I am hoping to continue working on it. Thanks in advance for your evaluation. "Why I Want to be an Army Aviator" As a Warrant Officer and Army Aviator, my leadership,
  8. Hello Everyone, I've been lurking on this forum for a little while and have read most of the threads I have come across regarding this topic. I was hoping you guys/girls can roast my essay/summary so I can improve it? I have used the links in regards to readability and actually watched the DoD Course on Plain Language suggested by Stearmann4. I feel like it comes across as a bit fluffy and not enough concise detail, and trying to avoid the cliche sentences is easier said than done! Let me know what you think, thank you! “Why I Want to be an Army Aviator” The military has always been on m
  9. **First thanks for the reviews/criticism of my original rough draft. This is more or less my 3rd draft. Ran it by my commands Career Counselor he says its solid could use "something" tho. Anyways feel free to make suggestions or critiques...more eyes the better** Imagine waking up going to work sitting in front of a panel of complicated controls while hovering hundreds of feet in the air. Sounds thrilling, yet bizarre for most, but you could say that’s another day at the office for an Army aviator. Once I found out I had the opportunity of doing this same thing, I knew I had to try to make i
  10. Hey guys this is my first post and have been a lurker for a while on this forum. Im in the earlier process of building my application/package and was looking for some healthy criticism/review of my essay, thanks! **If it seems a bit ambiguous in terms of Army references it's because Im applying for multiple commissioning programs (Navy) *Is this too long? Like many kids growing up I didn’t know exactly what I wanted to do when I got older, yet I knew wanted to do something bigger than myself. It took me a while to figure out what that could possibly be, but it hit me in my earliest a
  11. Hello, I am currently going making my way through creating my packet for WOFT. I think I have a pretty good chance, but would love some help on the Why I Want to Be an Army Aviator essay. If anyone who has gone through and been accepted could give me some pointers or recommended revisions on my essay that would be great. Here's the link to the google doc: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1V-RT2QtqeAyJFRM7D6N9QWrpsZPJfYzTK7fxdmi8rOQ/edit?usp=sharing Thank You
  12. Hello all, I am shooting for the July board. I have a few LoR's inbound (unfortunately no SWO's) and I am chipping away at the paperwork. I have a draft of the essay and the resume I would like some feedback on. I used the format given on the sample packet on the USAREC site. It has been a bit of a head hurter. I want my essay to be unique but from my experience... follow the damn instructions. My wife is an English major so she will be hitting me up on that grammar, punctuation, etc. However, I would like some community professionals to pick apart the format and content.
  13. Hey everyone, I have completed my packet for March, however, as of today I have come to a bit of a concerning subject; the essay requirements. I was directed by my recruiter to type a one page essay and have a handwritten copy of it. Today, however, I was told by another applicant that the essay requirements are for it to be one-page-handwritten and then type a copy of that. My deadline for updating my packet is Friday, thus, I am trying to figure this out so I know if I need to get a new essay submitted or not. My questions are: (1) Has anyone made the mistake I have? If so, did it m
