Leadership is the action of leading a group or organization. To be an effective leader one must be honest, trustworthy, and contain a large amount of integrity. The traits and qualities of an effective leader were taught to me during my time in JROTC. JROTC stresses its core values of honor, courage, and commitment to all of its members. Cadet's are expected to uphold these three values in every aspect of what you do as a cadet in this program. When I first entered this program I was a shy and insecure little girl who had no idea what she wanted in life. I started as a squad leader, in charge of about 5 people. I later moved on to a staff position, I currently serve as the Chief of staff. As chief of staff, I help ensure that all officers under
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. My work ethic has elevated me above my peers and is reflected in my records. Over the past five years, my interest in the intelligence field has increased and I 've used that time wisely to improve my analytical proficiency. I paid close attention to senior leadership, learned from them and use them as role models to becoming a warrant officer. Now, I am ready to take this important step in my life and career by becoming a significant asset to the warrant officer
This model of professional development must be progressive and with a common career map for all NCOs. Focusing on the five lines of effort that are, military life cycle, education, assignment / experience, credentialing / experience and self-development. These lines of effort are focused on the tasks and missions that are link in establishing the operational and strategic conditions of the future. The development of future NCO will depend on how the leaders of the present will train in an institutional, operational and self-development way to the new generation. Responsibility and commitment is much greater because the war models have changed and have allowed the broadening assignments, operational assignment and professional assignment, in this way the combination of both generations will allow shared responsibility and stewardship for U.S.
The Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps’ mission statement is to, “To motivate young people to be better citizens.” JROTC prepares young men to have leadership and to have benefits in their citizenship. JROTC prepares young men to be independent to be in charge of others that could benefit others to be better leaders. JROTC provides different activities such as service learning projects, which is a project which gives opportunities of knowledge, discipline, and a sense of responsibility to take for the future. There are certain goals that JROTC wants cadets to accomplish to be a better citizen. First is knowing and exercising the rights, taking responsibilities and good citizenship. Gaining leadership abilities to live and work cooperatively
Many seem to over emphasize the many privileges gained as an officer and seem to completely overlook the ever more important duties that should be the true motivators. I must ensure to maintain this mindset. I must also remember to put “people first”. (Department of Defense, 1988) This will be a cornerstone in every decision I make. Lastly, as a Warrant Officer I am expected to be the subject matter expert in my field. With no knowledge of my personality or past, Soldiers will expect me to have a high amount of knowledge on my particular field; therefore, I will need to ensure their trust in my knowledge is not wasted.
Noncommissioned Officer 2020 is the Army's vision for developing the leaders of tomorrow thru a deliberate, continuous, and progressive process. This process is the key to the future of the NCO of 2020 and beyond. While most parts of it have been brought up to full speed, many are still in a work in progress and require further guidance before the vision becomes a full reality and propels the NCO Corps forward into future endeavors. The
Ever since I can remember, I have always felt a calling to serve my country. One of the reasons for my calling of service has been the influence of my family throughout my childhood. My father was a lieutenant in the Army National Guard prior to being injured and placed a high importance on honor and commitment. In addition, one of my Great Grandfathers was a Marine Captain in the Pacific Theatre during WWII and my other Great Grandfather was seriously injured during the Battle of Guam. As a child, I looked up to my dad and grandparents because I knew that they had taken a stand to protect our country.
My previous experience with ROTC in school and various leadership positions in school have already staged me to command a crew and deal with high stress environments on a daily basis and still thrive. The added bonus of knowledge mixed with leadership capabilities makes me a great candidate for this position. I am prepared to learn how to direct personnel operations, manage shipboard vertical launch systems, use computer displays and advanced technology in battle and ship defense, and provide support to Navy expeditionary
This year marks the 100th year anniversary of the Junior Reserves Officer Training Corps program. With more than 3,230 JROTC programs world wide, 314,000 Cadets, 4,000 Instructors, and thousands of advocates, the JROTC program institutes character education, the value of citizenship, student leadership, community service, diversity, and giving back to others. I will be reviewing the historical events that contributed to the founding of the JROTC program, how the curriculum has evolved to its present day standing, and finally, the portrayal of what this program may have to offer 100 years into the future.
I have experienced many situations and endured a multitude of experiences throughout my life. It is through these experiences that I have been able to learn a great deal about myself. Since I was young, I have always set astronomically high goals and expectations for myself. This was largely in part due to the strong upbringing from my parents, who taught me what is right and wrong, and instilled very strong personal values, along with a continued ideal of community service. These values helped forge me into who I am today. Besides family values, my background begins when I first joined the Boy Scouts of America. There I was taught what it means to adhere to a motto and properly wear a uniform. Although this was the simplest form of a uniform,
I am originally from Nacogdoches TX but was raised in Greenbrier AR. After completion of high school I joined the Army on October 19, 2004 as a 21D (Engineer Diver). I attended basic training at Fort Lenardwood, MO. Upon completion or basic training I moved into phase I of advanced individual training at Fort Lenardwood and then to phase II at Panama City, FL. My first duty assignment was with the 86th Dive Detachment in December 2005. While assigned to the 86th Dive team where I conducted missions all over the world. After about five years of diving I got accepted to Warrant Officer Candidate School (WOCS). I was appointed a W01 in October 2009 and graduated 881A1 Marine Engineering Officer in August 2010. WO1 Hayes’ first duty position as
Many leaders, both ground and aviation, recognized the need for aviation planning abilities at the BCT level. The BAE would be able to provide well rounded aviators and enlisted aviation personnel that can assist ground forces in full spectrum aviation operations. The structure has changed since 2006 as the BAE continues to evolve to meet the demands of the current fight. As a basis, each BAE will have a Brigade Aviation Officer, a BAE Plans Officer, an Aviation Tactical Operations Officer, an Aviation Operations Sergeant, and an Aviation Operations Specialist (Headquarters Department of the Army, Army Training Circular 1-400, 2006). The duties that each of these personnel will have are largely dictated by the mission. There are also multitudes of Military Occupational Specialties (MOS) that can serve in the BAE. Originally, it was intend for Aviation Operations Specialists to serve in the operations sergeant and specialist position, but the position has opened up to allow Air Traffic Controllers and UAS Operators in order to have a plethora of aviation knowledge at the ground force commander’s
The role of the military officer today is very complex, challenging, and very rewarding. The transition into Warrant Officer Basic Course (WOBC) has displayed a few of those characteristics. Upon arrival to the WOBC we as newly appointed Warrant Officers were welcomed with open arms. Not only was the students eager to get started and to begin learning on how to become future 131As but the instructors were as eager to coach, influence and direct the class in the direction needed not only becoming newly certified 131A but to become the future of the 131A cohort.

I believe that our fighting forces need strong minded individuals who are driven and determined to always strive for the Army to stay relevant and strong. Consequently, the recruiter duty is to recruit those who are passionate with a strong desire and pride to serve the nation. A sense of pride in which does not feel like you are doing a job, but honor to be in the Army’s uniform. As a combat veteran who have deployed to both Iraq and Afghanistan multiple times, I have the capability due to taught persistence, determination, organization and built stamina from past experiences, to be an admirable recruiter. Being out in combat have shown me the kind of heart within a person the Army need, the kind of fight within an individual that the army need, and the characteristics in which makes up a US Army personnel. Along with being deployed some of my learned skills were acquired when I was assigned as a Fury FSC retention NCO two years ago, and my job was to educate soldiers about what they qualified for and other entitlements. Even though the soldier already knew the skills needed in the Army and had knowledge of the Army, I still had to persuade individuals to why they should reenlist. This required some craftiness on my part as some of these soldiers needed to hear something that they haven't heard
