First and foremost I would like to thank you for taking the time to review my packet and waiver request. I have given great thought and effort into presenting the best packet possible. The reason for this waiver request is that I will be just past 12 years of Active Federal Service (AFS) as the board convenes. I am not one to make excuses so I will only provide a few reasons as to why I am at this point, requesting a AFS waiver to become a Warrant Officer Aviator. As a young Infantry Soldier coming into Active Duty, I deployed twice, back to back. Being in the Infantry and deploying was what I love and enjoyed. The goals I had for my career involved completing every school possible that the Army offers in order to make myself and asset to my men and unit, not a liability. In the pursuit of these goals, the years passed quickly and here I am approaching my 12th year in the Army.

Throughout my career I have always been a standard bearer and steward of the profession. Exceeding the standard has always been foremost in my mind. I will without a doubt bring these qualities over to the Warrant officer Corp if given the opportunity. My body feels young and my brain is agile enough to continue my service as a Warrant officer and Aviator for many years to come. Regardless if I am awarded the opportunity to join the Warrant Officer corp or denied, I will still continue my service well past 20 years. What I will bring to the Corp is someone who never settles for mediocrity. Being an expert and professional is everything that I am and I will continue to always strive to improve myself and others around me.

My years are without a doubt still young in my service to this Army and Country.
In closing, I ask for your strongest consideration and approval of this waiver.

WO1 (Join to see) You mention the word young twice. Consider changing the second to last sentence. "My years are without a doubt still young in my service to this Army and Country. " to "I have been honored to serve my country, and would like the opportunity to serve as a Warrant Officer Aviator."

I think this AFS Waiver request sounds good, but we need experts to provide advice. I wish you the best of luck. Please keep us posted.

WO1 (Join to see) - A question. Should your AFS Waiver request mention why you want to become a Warrant Officer Aviator?

From what I understand, why I want to become a warrant should be the summary of the resume. Not part of the request for waiver

I know it's been 2 years since you posted this, but did this AFS waiver work for you? Because I just hit 12 years and I have to submit one for Flight Warrant.

Yes it worked for me. If you’re at 12 years don’t worry about the waiver. Get it done but don’t worry about it getting approved. If your committed to the 10 year service obligation, put the packet in.

Yeah I was told to submit the AFS waiver. But I have more than 8 years in. Now I’m just figuring out how to word it.

Also, we are a Cohort not a Corp. I would strongly suggest you make that change. Besides that, follow the advice of the others. Best of luck!
