The Army also taught me the value of saving money for the future. Although, those changes were great, the best part of my training was getting to meet new people. Learning how to make friends was the best skill I learned. Compared to my old life, I am now on track to being the best I can ever hope to be. The Army transformed me into the man I am
Another thing that I learned from experience in the military and my civilian job is always hold people to increased standards. High standards I learned in both profession is important because you are a role model to someone at all times. Just like in the Marine Corps, I act as a professional in my profession at all times from the time I come in until I leave each day. According to Pelled (2007), “The thought of a missing goodness is a relatively comforting one that can give rise to mental development by learning from experience” (p. 1510). To be honest, I would not have made any different decisions with the knowledge I now
As a leader we need to strive to learn about the opportunities that are available and specifically the ones that specific to our job field. I have found that in addition to going to your leadership development courses there is also an abundance of courses offered through University of South Carolina that the Soldiers can attend. There are a few credentialing opportunities that have been opened up for Finance Soldiers to enroll in. We should take advantage of these opportunities ourselves as leaders, so our Soldiers will follow the example set forth. Subordinate Soldiers will see that I have set the tempo and it is attainable.
As an NCO, I have given my best to ensure mission success and train my soldiers. Concurrently, I continue the search for unique and challenging intelligence positions. Becoming a warrant officer will open doors to those new challenges I seek, expands the possibilities of specific training and unique assignment opportunities while still providing the opportunity to train, lead, and mold the next generation of soldiers. During my 11 years as an Intelligence Analyst, I have excelled in positions of greater responsibility and genuinely believe i have more to offer the Army. Throughout my career, I have taken my job seriously and taken pride in my work.
Another goal I have is to be a great leader/ role model for not only my family, underclassmen, but my community. Being a leader now will help me show my family, underclassmen, and community that I work hard and that things don’t come easy. I am always willing to help out and make a difference in my community. Having set goals makes me want to work harder, and also making me realize the road will be hard. But with the work ethics I have that I’ve learned throughout high school, and will continue to learn in college will help me accomplish these much easier.
It is a huge responsibility to make sure a child, or sometimes an infant is safe at all times. I am always trying do the right thing, so the child can have someone they can look up to. I am a leader in the sense that I never turn down anyone when they ask for help. I should be accepted into the National Honors Society because giving my service to people, whether it is in school, home, or the community is an extremely important aspect of my everyday
I want to be a United States military officer in order to pass on the knowledge and experience that I have gained to future generations of Soldiers. With more rank comes greater responsibility. I will use my abilities and understanding of leadership to bridge the gap between noncommissioned officers and commissioned officers. As I progress through the ranks I can influence a greater number of Soldiers and enable junior leaders to be the kind of leadership we looked up to when we started this journey. Society will expect me to live up to and be held accountable to higher standards as a military officer.
As I work my way up through the ranks taking on new responsibilities, I will be prepared for the basic needs of an officer. With an officer job, I could respond to more serious and upgraded duties to work successfully and effectively as a team captain. I also feel it is my obligation as an American citizen to pay homage to our veterans and country. It is important to keep the legacy of America alive, and as an officer I can see myself on the forefront. After seeing the multitude of honor veterans receive, my donation to them would be to continue their labor of freedom in the Navy.

I have had many important life events that have impacted my life in a good way. Some are more important than others. They have helped me become, who I am today. The first event helped by teaching me how to be a good teammate, teaching me many physical skills, and helped me learn to focus and be intense. Through the second event, I learned how to follow rules, be obedient, and to choose between right and wrong.
That is my plan, leadership is in my future but for now my best bet is to continue to learn. This experience has been a positive one for me. Learning how to become an effective leaders encompasses a lot more than I originally thought. To be great leader one needs vision, drive, tenacity, understanding, negotiating skills, and the integrity to not let their head get to big. Barb has taught me all of these things and so much more.
I have a better insight of what careers I am best suited for. Some of the careers identified were, detective, managers, judge, and teachers. My role also taught me about my relationship with my family putting God first, family second, and friends third. It showed I 'm dedicated to building lifelong relationships, I like to be in charge and have a tendency of being controlling and have very little patience, and having a high regard to traditions. I like stability being secured and, protective of my family.
