I'm currently assembling my Warrant Officer Packet, and am in need of some advice in regards to my military experience, or rather lack thereof, and my summary. Being that I am lower enlisted, I don't really receive cumulative information about how I am performing on the job, and I don't really have much responsibility other than performing maintenance on UH-60s, so I am struggling to quantify how I am positively affecting my current unit. Overall I've done very little in both my civilian education, and military career so I would love some suggestions on how to make my packet look better.

As for my summary, I am not entirely sure how people write them, as there are different methods of writing certain types of summaries I am not entirely sure that I've completed the summary correctly. Anyways, again feedback on what I currently have would be greatly appreciated.

SECTION IV - MILITARY EXPERIENCE:
DATES(YY/MM): May 2018 to Present
ORGANIZATION: 2ID, 3-2 General Support Aviation Battalion, Camp Humphreys, Korea
POSITION TITLE: 15T UH-60 Helicopter Repairer
DUTIES(list below to include significant contributions):
I am responsible for correctly performing unscheduled maintenance, inspections, and phase inspections on UH-60L helicopters. This is my first duty station where I'm performing aviation maintenance, and everyday I strive to either teach someone something they don't know or learn something new about the Blackhawk.

DATES(YY/MM): Jan 2018 to May 2018
ORGANIZATION: 160th, Special Operations Training Company, Fort Campbell, KY
POSITION TITLE: 15T UH-60 Helicopter Repairer
DUTIES(list below to include significant contributions):
I was responsible for helping in process new soldier arriving for enlisted green platoon, additionally I helped facilitate transportation of those new soldiers from the airport to Fort Campbell. I was responsible for 4-5 soldiers under me while tasked out on details. I also assisted the platoon sergeant in administrative work such as verifying weekend pass packets, and leave packets.

DATES(YY/MM): Sep 2017 to Jan 2018
ORGANIZATION: 1-222D, C Co. AIT, Fort Eustis, VA
POSITION TITLE: 15T UH-60 Helicopter Repairer
DUTIES(list below to include significant contributions):
I was responsible for becoming technically proficient in aviation level maintenance on UH-60M/L aircraft. I learned what is expected and required to perform aircraft maintenance, the importance of attention to detail, and the importance of reading and executing the work packages properly.

SECTION VI - MILITARY EDUCATION:
DATES (YY/MM): Sep 2017 to Jan 2018
COURSE: 15T UH-60 Helicopter Repairer AIT
DESCRIPTION:
I learned in depth information about the operation of many components of UH-60 Helicopters, how to perform proper maintenance on UH-60 Helicopters. This course taught me the importance of properly reading, and understand work packages before conducting maintenance, how to properly log maintenance being performed, and most importantly how critical attention to detail is in the aviation field.

DATES (YY/MM): Sep 2017 to Jan 2018
COURSE: Structured Self Development 1 Course
DESCRIPTION:
This course taught me about a variety of important information which isn't always presented to you at basic training, but is important to the effectiveness of any soldier in the Army. I learned various health/fitness tricks and methods which help prevent and recover for injuries sustained during PT. SSD1 taught me about the history of the Army and it's many traditions, none of which were covered in basic training. Additionally Structured Self Development 1 taught me about proper military writing, and leadership/effective management.

SECTION VII - SUMMARY:
As a small child the roar of an aircraft engine was among my favorite sounds, for it allowed a quick glance into the sky, and hours of fantasizing about someday flying one of those beautiful flying machines. Throughout my schooling, there was always a tick in the back of my mind every time I saw a plane or helicopter flying, that tick was someday I'm going to fly one of those machines. Eventually those thoughts lead me to join the Army and pursue Army Aviation. Needless to say my passion for aviation has spanned most of my life, and I believe is truly unshakable. Through my relatively short military career, I've come to realize that being an aviator isn't just about flying, it's mostly about leadership, devotion to you're crew, and those aboard the aircraft you're flying.

Throughout my life, I've always had a natural ability to lead, peers always seemed to follow in my tracks throughout school, friends always asked me for advise, and now other soldiers often ask me for guidance on performing maintenance. I've always been able to read people, and determine whether or not they need help and provide that help. I believe the key to being a successful leader isn't trying to prove you're better than anyone because you have more rank, but rather is about taking every opportunity you can to teach other soldiers, help guide them through difficult times, staying calm during stressful times, and most importantly putting others needs before yours.

Although I'm surely younger and less experienced than other applicants, I'm confident that my passion of learning, preexisting knowledge of aircraft, calm and collected demeanor, devotion to the Army, and extremely strong work ethic will prove to those reading this that I am truly a prime choice as first an Army leader, and second an Army Aviator.

Thanks in advance for any help

Hi Sage,

The summaries and resume are pretty important. Given that you have a short career history, you've done a good job putting pen to paper so far. Are you a member of any of the WOFT forums out there? If not, I suggest you sign up. There is a wealth of information out there and lots of people who want to help.

One of my favorite aspects of aviation is the comradery among pilots and aspiring pilots. People become pilots because it's seen to them as a calling and you'll be hard pressed to find one who wont go out of their way to help you.

I do want to give you what I hope will be seen as more of my opinion rather than a critique on your comment: "I would love some suggestions on how to make my packet look better."
I think the question should be "How can I convey the skills and experience I currently have to fit the Army's expectations of Aviators"

Your resume is your opportunity to "sell yourself" to the board and the advice I have always been given (Because I originally asked the same question you did) has always been to write your resume to reflect how your experience will make you a great Warrant Aviator.

I'm stuck in this same area as well. It will be nice to get some better insight on the way it should be worded to stand out!
