The Army National Guard is a whole new way to serve. It’s all about commitment to help communities in need. It’s solid dedication to the country in war and in peace. They form an elite team that shares similar core values, convictions, and beliefs. To be in the National Guard can mean serving the country part-time, one weekend a month and two weeks a year as most Guard members serve. This is what makes them different from the other branches of the military. Experiences will be gained that would change one’s outlook on life forever. Skills will be learned that will last a lifetime. The Guard is a team that values serving others and being the best; a part-time job
Two goals that I have always had are getting a college degree and serving in the military, however, I did not know which I would pursue first or what I wanted to major in. As I started more seriously looking into where I wanted to go to college and what I wanted to do, I heard about the Naval Academy. I thought it was a great opportunity because I could get a degree and then go into the military as an officer, not to mention I wouldn’t have to pay for my school. Furthermore, when my time is up, if I like my job, I can extend my commission, if I don’t, I can be discharged and get a civilian job or go back to school for something else I am interested in. I would have a boatload of options, and I’d have a huge head start on anyone else my age
The branches of the military are: the US Marine Corps, the US Army, the US Navy, the US Air Force, the US Coast Guard, and US Special Operations Command. The US Marine Corps works very closely with the Navy and they are typically the first one on the ground when it comes to combat. The Army protects the security of the US and our resources. The Navy defends our rights to freely travel and trade on the oceans as well as protect our national interests that are overseas. The Air Force focuses on air power abroad and home. The Coast Guard protect the environment, public, and security and economic interest that are in a maritime region.The Coast Guard not only falls under the DOD, but also the Department of Homeland Security. After the 9/11 attacks,
I was born in Minneapolis, MN where I was raised. Graduated from Champlin Park High School in 2001. In 2003 I attended Dunwoody College of Technology and graduated in 2006 with 2 A.A.S. degrees. One in Electrical Construction and Maintenance and the other in Automated Systems in Robotics. After graduation I moved to Las Vegas, NV where I worked as a commercial electrician for 3 years.
I have wanted to go into the military since i was very young. Most children say that they want to be a firefighter or a doctor, but i said that i wanted to be in the military. I remeber looking at pictures and learning about military officers and i felt called to be one of those men. My decision and dreams never changed, as most childrens do when they realize the work required. But for reasons beyond my comprehension, my desire of a miltary life never wavered. Both of my parents' fathers served in the military, one n the Air Force and one in the Army. They told me stories of their days in the military, bragging of their different branhes and I took what they said and choose a school that woud lead to a career in neither of their branches.
The United States Army is known as the senior and largest branch of the Armed Forces. It performs land-based operations along with assisting other branches of the service. Our modern army is descended from the Continental Army, which was formed on June 14, 1775 in order to fight in the Revolutionary War before the United States was an established country. Later, on June 3, 1784, the Congress of the Confederation created the United States Army to replace the dismantled Continental Army. There are differences of opinions as to when the official birthday of the Army is. Some consider 1784 as the start of our Army, while others say June 14, 1775 is the official birthday of the United States Army, (“The United States Army,” 2015). I agree with 1775
I am an officer in the United States Army, I have selected to make the military a career, and I want to be a leader in international security for our nation. I began my career as an infantry officer and had the opportunity on a deployment to Afghanistan to collaborate directly with that nation's government forces. I led my platoon and our Afghan counterparts in carrying out security and stability initiatives from the NATO-led International Security Assistance Force. I have since then transitioned to military intelligence and my first assignment in this new career field was as the intelligence officer for an air defense battalion in the Pacific region. In this position, I was required to focus on foreign ballistic missile capabilities in
I had the confidence to go the college but was not sure about my career goals. It was a tough choice because my parents had advanced degrees and expected me to pursue the same path. I promised them I would get a college degree and start taking classes once I completed my AIT. I left for Basic Combat Training at Ft. Leonardwood on November 12, 2012. During my time there, I was inspired to become a commissioned officer. Our Company XO, 1 Lt. Donaldson, told us an inspiring story about his experiences in the Army. He had defined himself as a “go getter”, taking advantage of the resources the Army had provided him. During his time as an enlisted soldier he had obtained two college degrees. He constantly strove to improve himself to be able to take on any task that he was confronted with. Through his story, I realized that education was not only the key to being successful as a civilian, but also as a soldier. I had graduated from basic training on February 7, 2013 and would soon set out for San Angelo, Texas to attend the 35 November course at Good Fellow
The career chosen has interested me for many years now. I wish to serve my country and defend our freedom from whatever the threat may be. Many men and women have done the same as I wish to do, lay down their own life for something bigger. This job will allow me to have a real purpose in life and yet may be dangerous but never boring.

I enlisted in the Army February 7, 2007, as an Intelligence Analyst. I enlisted with the hope I of earning a college degree and learn soft skills that would develop me professionally and personally. I was sent to Fort Jackson, South Carolina for Basic Training and to Fort Huachuca, Arizona for Intelligence Analyst training. Upon graduation, I received assignment orders to 4th Brigade Combat Team (Airborne), 25th Infantry Division Fort Richardson, Alaska. At the end of 2007, I completed my Associates of Applied Science in Intelligence Operations from Cochise College, Sierra Vista, Arizona. I wanted to continue my college education, but not in the field of analysis. In January 2008, I applied and was accepted to American Military University’s International Relations concentration in Comparative and Regional Politics Bachelor of Arts degree program.
In this report I will be going over the importance of training and education within the military, and how they both play very important roles to not only leaders, but the service members within our ranks. The military is constantly training and, we train as we fight. However, before soldiers train, they must be well educated in all areas in which they will be training. Proper education is the key to proper training. I will also discuss the importance of becoming better educated while serving in the military, as it will make transitioning back into the
For as long I can remember, I have always wanted to be a soldier of the US Army. As I grew up, I heard stories from my family members about their life in the military. I had completely idolized my cousin while growing up, and when she enlisted it only strengthened my resolve to do the same. You could say serving in the military is in my blood, family, and future.
I have been serving in the Army for 18 years. I did four years in the Marines. I am currently working in Fort Drum as a Sergeant Major. My job is Infantry.
I would be eligible for this occupation because I love to be active, and I was in cross country. I am able to run long distances without taking a break. My relatives were in the army like my great grandpa who participated in both of the World Wars. My grandpa used to be in the Vietnam War; he talks about it a lot in his spare time. My family has been in the military, but some of my past relatives have.The US Airborne provides excitement, education,opportunity,and competitive wages.
