Essay About Becoming an Officer in The Us Army

For many people, the decision to pursue military service comes from being a “military family” or, perhaps a particular event caused them to want to serve. This is somewhat true for me as well, although the military history in my family comes more from extended relatives (cousins, uncles, great-uncles) and close family friends. There was no single event that influenced my decision. My decision to pursue a military career was built over time and has become more and more clear that this is what I am meant to do. 

In becoming an officer, I look to make my family, peers, and fellow countrymen proud.  Being an officer in the US Army will give me the opportunity to give back to the community and our nation.    

There are several things that have helped to build my character and integrity. A secure and loving family, a strong faith in God, competitive athletics, National Honor Society, and my part-time job to name a few. Besides my family and faith my strongest foundation for character, service, and leadership has been my commitment to my job and education. This is the result of hard work, dedication to service, and a long-term demonstration of leadership and good moral character that will lead me through the rest of my life. 

I am a 28-year-old single woman. I am aspiring to be a dentist to help my community and others who live outside my community who need help. I am a single independent black woman who strives to be the best in order to make those around me be the best they can be. I am a leaner. I am a leader. I am a dreamer. I am patient and know they things happen when they are meant to happen. I am kacie Jackson the first of my family to go as far as I have gone and will continue to move forward.

I come from a semi big family. I have four older brothers and sister. I had the pleasure of going the process with my parents to adopt my little brother when he was 2 weeks old. Nothing I have has come easy to me and I am grateful for that. My hard work and dedication have brought me this far and will continue to take me further until I reach my goal. Ever since grade school I have strived to be the best and it as shown. I graduated number seven on my high school. Went to my dream school, although, I didn’t graduate from there, I did make the Dean’s list at the school, Tarleton State University, I received my bachelor’s degree from as well as maintain a 3.5 GPA during my graduate studies. 

I have been through many upsets and ___ but those experiences have only made me a stronger, better, and more ___ individual. The first time I applied to dental school I got rejected. The second time I applied to dental school I again got rejected. I turned these rejections into opportunities. It took me a minute, but I realized I wasn’t ready for that next chapter. So, I went back to school and earned a master’s degree in science. One thing I have learned that as leader you have to know when its time to try another route to get where you need to go. 

I want to be an Army dentist because it will allow me to learn more than I could have dreamed. Being a military dentist, I will be able to help the less fortunate as will as make serve my country. There is no better gift than giving back. I want to lead others to do the same thing.
