There are two main reasons why I want to become an Officer. First of all, I want to make a difference in the training of Reserve Soldiers. Second of all, I enjoy challenges and becoming an Officer would be a new challenge that I would take with complete seriousness and would excel in.

I have been in the United States Army Reserves for almost ten years. During these ten years I have became very proficient at my MOS, which is a 12N and I have been deployed to Iraq in 2003. Training soldiers is the job I enjoy the most. Over the years, I have also had a chance to see and experience training and missions as an enlisted soldier. I remember all of the soldier complaints and mission complications. A great mentor once told me, the only way to ameliorate the headaches that come along with being a Reserve Soldier is to move up in the ranks. This is what I desire to do.

Honestly I do not fully understand all the responsibilities of a Commissioned Officer. However, I do know that they are responsible for the majority of the planning. With my teaching background, my experience as an enlisted soldier, as a Noncommissioned Officer, and my experience with soldiers, I can make battle assemblies more worthwhile and meaningful to all soldiers alike. I first handedly know what soldiers enjoy and I do have many great ideas that will without a doubt ensure high moral with in any unit I am assigned to.

I absolutely love being in the United States Army and I live by the Army values. Learning new skills and being challenged are things that I take pleasure in. Becoming a Commissioned Officer would allow me to apply my knowledge and experience to the operations side of the Army. The Army will extremely benefit from my ambition and determination. Becoming a Commissioned Officer would be a challenge I would like to accept.
