Throughout my military career, I have shown my superiors that I am adaptive, tactically, and technically competent in my skills as a Fire Support Specialist. My work ethic and intrinsic motivation allow me to exceed expectations and lead my peers. As a Private First Class, I served in the position of a specialist, and as a specialist, I served in the position of a Sergeant while earning two Army Achievement Medals for setting a higher standard. Within the first month that I was in my secondary zone, my command sent me to the Sergeant promotion board where I was a first time go. As soon as I was promotable, I was entrusted with an NCO role and promoted to Corporal. Additionally, upon graduating the Basic Leaders Course, I made the Commandant's List by recommendation from my instructors for having superior abilities to lead and communicate. Directly after being promoted to Sergeant, I filled the role of Fire Support Sergeant, a billeted Staff Sergeant position. Fire Support Sergeant is the position of a subject matter expert in all things related to fire support. With this duty position, I have led soldiers into rigorous training and managed stressful situations. All while mentoring new field artillery officers in their first roles in the Army. I have since earned two Army Accommodation Medals for my performance in said role. I have led Soldiers at every duty position and rank by setting the standard for knowledge and work ethic. I believe that my experience of leading Soldiers and understanding and mentoring young Officers would translate nicely to a Warrant Officer career. I'm confident that I can better the flight community through my drive and dedication to my country. I would now like to take on another challenging role and become an Aviation Warrant Officer.
I want to be an Army Aviator because of the challenge and the opportunity within the field. Being in the aviation community will allow me to combine my passions, service to my country, and flying. My grandfather was an aircraft maintenance technician. He taught me that piloting an aircraft is one of the biggest challenges and responsibilities; however, there is no greater reward. I got to experience this reward growing up, as every summer he would take us flying. It wasn't till after training with Apaches during an Army Attack Aviation mission that I realized I could combine my two passions for a more fulfilling career. Army Aviation is an integral part of the combined arms team and is responsible for fighting the enemy and saving fellow soldiers' lives. Aviators must have an ample amount of courage, for he/she is risking his/her life to save soldiers in hostile situations; that kind of selfless service is why I joined the Army in the first place. Becoming an aviator is a lifelong dream that has motivated me to the fullest extent, and I will strive until I achieve it. It is this self-drive and motivation, along with my military experience that qualifies me to become a Warrant Officer Aviator. I am ready to take on a new challenge and add to an already fulfilling career in the United States Army.

I may not be a ton of help, but I cut-and-paste mine into word and used the spelling and grammar check function. I am also having warrants with similar backgrounds review the entire packet too.

Army Commendation Medals. You put “Army Accommodation Medals”

The questions you want to answer when writing your summary are:

Why you want to be an Army Aviator?
Why should we select you?
What do you bring to the table?

While your summary answers all three questions there are some things that you may need to change. SSG Nicholas Anderson said it, the Accomodation medals. Also, you used the word “till”. Till is not the abbreviation of “until”. You have to write very professionally. Another thing is that you mentioned aviators and tha he/she is risking their lives etc etc.... I would keep it gender neutral. Instead of he/she use they, instead of his/her use their. Keep it neutral. Also, the s in Soldiers must be capitalized. Copy and paste your summary in a MS word document and use the spell check. If you want me to check your resume send me an invite or add me as your contact. Thanks.

It’s a good essay. Pretty similar to mine, as long as you feel like it’s the best possible essay you’ve ever written, with no BS and real passion put into your statements.. you should be good. When I submitted mine, I felt very confident in my work, and ended up getting selected. Keep improving your packet/essay in any way you can until there is no doubt in your mind that you could have done better.
