If I was to write an essay for OCS, I would focus on Army Leadership; most likely the foundations of Army Leadership. To be a good officer, I would think understanding that would be critical. Just my opinion, best of luck!

It would help if you gave us the question you need to answer. For myself I like to use the "3 Tells" concept: paragraph 1: Tell me what you are going to tell me. i.e. I want to be an Officer based on the influence of George Washington, the ordeals of Captain Fuzzybear, and my father who was a fill in the blank. Paragraph 2,3,4, are the "Tell Me" paragraphs. They will be one paragraph each on the reasons listed in Paragraph one. Last Paragraph is the "Tell me what you told me " or a review and closure of the document. This is how I would do it, but there are other ways, and I am sure others will chime in. I hope this helps.

Isn't the prompt for the essay: why do you want to be an Army Officer?

Read the question, answer the question.

SomethingsI would address
- why are you seeking a commission?
- why do you think you are suited to be an officer?
- what will you bring to help the Army succeed in its missions?
