I am currently in the TNARNG in a mechanized infantry unit as an 11B looking for a Chief Warrant Officer(3-5) to sign a Letter of Recommendation or at least impart some wisdom on how I might find someone that would.

Either find your closest National Guard aviation battalion or go to Campbell and find 101 CAB. Talk to company aviators at both locations until you find the Warrant Officer that will be willing to interview you and potentially write you a letter. If they aren't initially willing to, find out what they are looking for. Have your packet complete and with you so that they see you are serious about your future. Good luck and I am sure you will end up successful in your endeavor to get a letter.

I would reach out to the closest aviation unit or other unit with flight operations. Physically go there and talk to the pilots and see what they would like to see from you before conducting your interview and providing a letter. I have worked with a lot of applicants and was far more likely to help someone who showed initiative and good sense in how they went about preparing themselves for the application process. If someone came to me without a plan or having done their due diligence to ascertain what they needed to do in order to successfully apply to the program. So, my best advice is to do all of the research that a motivated applicant should be expected to do ... I suspect you will find a solid senior WO, who will help you get your packet squared away and submitted to the board. Good luck, becoming a WO was one of the best things that ever happened to me, but as is almost always the case, I found the right mentors who took the time to prepare me for the job I ultimately got to do for the remainder of my career.

Good luck, you’re off to a good start, don’t let any one personality dissuade you from perusing your dream job in the Army.

How far are you from Campbell? When I was at Bragg I went to the flight line and went to one of the companies and just talked to some WO’s. Most are extremely happy to help or at least point you in the right direction. If you can’t reach out on here. I looked up the top CW3 on RP and asked her to review the summary portion of my resume.

I'm about 4 hours away from Campbell. I won't really have the opportunity to get up there before my packet is due though.
