WOFT Essay review

Recommended Posts

        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 know that I have obtained valuable experiences and preparation to be a good leader, Soldier, and Warrant Officer. I have taken a Private Pilot Ground School course and learned a great deal about being an Aviator through courses, books, and pilots that I know. I have excelled throughout school, while taking honors classes and being on sports teams. All of these accomplishments have increased my ability to become the best Warrant Officer and Aviator I can be, to meet the U.S. Army’s needs.

        Being a Soldier has many duties and responsibilities and I will uphold these duties and responsibilities to the best of my ability while I am serving, setting the example for others that serve with me. Obedience and high standards are a duty that a soldier must uphold, and my past experiences with supervisors and being obedient to the way that things work in a civilian job have conditioned me for this duty in the U.S. Army.
        Teamwork is a duty that must be upheld to have an efficient and effective Army. My training and experience, working with others in the workforce and competing on a sports teams, has given me the understanding and qualifications to be a better team player. This is a value that I will bring to the U.S. Army. Hard work is a given, as a soldier, and the hardships of school, working, competing in sports, and being there for family, all at once, or at separate times has prepared me for this duty.

        Finally, I have always wanted to serve my country. I believe that one of the most prestigious things someone can do for their country is to defend its freedom, its people, and the lives of others that fight for it.
         Flying holds a special place for me and those within my family that came before me. Aviation, specifically rotary wing flight, is a topic that has surrounded me, my whole life. The reason for this, is because I will be following in the footsteps of my grandfather, a retired CWO4, who flew Dustoff UH-1’s, AH-1 Cobra’s and OH-58 Kiowa helicopters for the U.S. Army, during his 20 year career, then my father, a CWO2, who flew Cobra’s, Chinook’s and Huey’s for the U.S. Army, and was honorably discharged, before becoming an Alaska State Trooper, and now I am striving to fly helicopters for the U.S. Army. I will lead fellow soldiers to the absolute best of my ability, and, will be the best Soldier possible for the U.S. Army, and I will fly to the best of my ability, to uphold safety and standards, and raise them where possible.
