I had this critiqued awhile ago by a current warrant from this forum. I have finally gotten back my stamped physical and want to touch up my packet as much as possible before I am able to submit it. Please be honest, its much appreciated! To call ones self an Army Aviator is a great honor and responsibility. The legacy they have carved is unmatched. I have seen first hand the impact they can make for our ground forces. I hope that my qualifications will afford me the opportunity to one day call myself an Army Aviator and make an impact myself. Being enlisted as a horizontal engineer has provided me opportunities to learn and grow as an individual. I have been trusted with millions of dollars worth of equipment. Being responsible for the safe operation of heavy equipment has become second nature and is a quality that is also vital in Army Aviation. My attention to detail and doing the little things such as 360 degree checks may mean the life or death of a fellow soldier. I have also become proficient in working under blackout conditions with NVGs in order to accomplish my tasks. It is not a responsibility I take lightly. Through my time in the Army, I have learned that a good leader must know both when to lead and when to follow. This is a trait that I believe I strongly possess. As a U.S. Army Aviator, I will strive to become a technical and tactical expert in order to ensure the success of my mission. I also understand that my role would include providing expert advice to commanding officers so that they can use aviation assets most efficiently. If given the opportunity to become both a Warrant Officer, and a U.S. Army Aviator, I will strive every day to become the expert that is relied upon for these decisions.
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 my mind since a young age. I love military history and strategy, and come from a family of prior service members and civil servants. The camaraderie, loyalty, and great sense of purpose that comes from a military lifestyle and career is appealing to me. I’m able to serve my country, be part of something that’s bigger than myself, and be a good role model. I’m also able to directly and indirectly have a positive influence on people’s lives while pursuing my dream of being an aviator in one of the world’s most lethal flying forces. I love the freedom of being able to fly and land virtually anywhere, as well as the thrill of essentially defying the laws of gravity. As a scuba diver, I understand how important it is to keep your composure during stressful situations. This trait is also reflected through my extensive international experience of leading students through various countries while seamlessly integrating into diverse cultures. As an aviator, I can make a greater impact on the lives of my fellow soldiers from the air than from the ground by providing CAS, Medivac, and Recon. This will indirectly have a positive impact on their family back home because they are safe. Being a Warrant Officer appeals to me because it provides the opportunity to refine my leadership skills and test them by setting the best example for my men. The position allows me to challenge myself to become part of the prestigious three percent of technical and tactical experts of my field. Being a slight perfectionist, mastering the criteria of my career is what I strive for. Going through the WOFT process, the willingness of Senior Warrant Officers to help prospective candidates succeed is a trait I admire greatly. -Tony
