Would like to see accomplishments or innovations in your current assignment. I understand it's only been about 6 months, but you should have done something other than show up for work in that time. Other resume items look good.

I see Sections 4, 5 & 6 from your USAREC 3.2, but not Section 7 (Summary / Resume). Did you mean to follow up with that in another post?

What you've written so far looks good to me. You covered all the basics: your duties, responsibilities, what you accomplished and what you learned. However, Section 7 should be personal as you're explaining to a board why you deserve to be an Aviator. Don't be afraid to talk about yourself and why you believe you are qualified.

But make damn sure that they know you are not going to be a "Tom Cruise" as that is the fastest way in the world to be rejected.
