Surface Warfare Officers (SWO) are known as the backbone of the Navy. For years I have desired to obtain this position and have done extensive research concerning the attributes and requirements. Because I believe the Navy begins in the heart as well as the head, I know that becoming a part of the Navy would be life changing. Commissioning as a SWO would allow me to make a meaningful difference, as well as gain unparalleled leadership experience.

This position paper is about Admiral McRaven University of Texas Commencement Speech. It will highlight his experience in the Navy Seal Training, his advice for the people who want to change the world, and the lessons I learned from him. Upon watching the speech from ADM McRaven, I felt motivated to make use of the guidance he gave in my daily life. Although he had many great points and useful advice that I plan on exercising in my career, I felt there were three major key points that I felt passionately to advocate for, and that I can relate to. The first point that I feel it is vital in any airmen’s career to act that sometimes no matter how persistent at something you are, there is always a chance that I may fail. The second point that ADM McRaven made in his speech that I found important was in regards to taking risks, it is important that if you want to change the world you cannot be afraid of taking chances and taking risks, because if you’re staying the same you’re not making any advances. The last point I will touch on is on how important it is for you to be vigilant on how you react during a difficult task(s). I will give examples as to why each of these things are not only important to myself, but important to any Airmen trying to successfully change the world.

More valuable than any weapons system, tank, or unmanned aerial vehicle is the Soldiers that operate them. Americans have depended upon brave men and women to defend our country against all enemies both foreign and domestic for the last 240 years. In a society where less than 1% of our entire American population serves in one capacity of the armed forces, Soldiers, Sailors, Marines Airmen, and Coast Guards have a crucial mission. As sequestration continues looming on the horizon, the Army had to devise its own concepts to reduce the size of its force. One initiative is the Officer Separation Board (OSB).

How I would justify Capitan Lashbrooke’s decision of stopping the attack halfway and almost leaving the Sergeant Major, Snell, Tom and the 3 other soldiers behind is by showing betrayal, disloyalty, and selfishness. Capitan Lashbrooke felt it was “ok” to leave the bugler, the Corporal, and the Sergeant Major along with some soldiers behind. He didn’t know value and importance of these people, and was willing would have left them behind. He didn’t realize how the battle would have gone without having the Sergeant Major. Throughout the book, Captain Lashbrooke always had orders for Jim, but if he wasn’t present, some things wouldn’t be the same. “‘Captain Lashbrooke!’ From far away in the trees the answer came, ‘We’re pulling back, Kerslake,
