Ever since the 9/11 attacks in the United States, Americans have discovered a new sense of nationalism. This terrible event have invoked the sentiments of individuals and heightened their love for democracy and freedom and their aversion for terrorism. As an outcome, countless able-bodies of males and females signed up with the US Armed Forces in order to retaliate from the terrorists who deliberately killed countless innocent lives in a country that advocates independence and social equality.
Likewise, these brave soldiers have actually voluntarily compromised their lives to safeguard and protect their beloved country.
Like those many courageous soldiers, I have actually decided to join their ranks and be of service to the United States of America. Enlisting in the Army was not a part of my strategies. I wished to pursue my college education so that I can set a much better future for myself. But due to the turn of eventd in 2001, I was inspired to do something in return to avenge the honor of my country.
The 9/11 attacks truly made an impact on my understanding about the world.
It had actually opened my eyes to the capabilities of individuals to propagate wicked on the planet for personal gains. All the while, I thought that people have grown out of greed and discrimination but I think I was incorrect and naive. Despite the tragedy and the presentation of immorality and violence, Americans still showed that they can increase above this appalling circumstance. They did not sulk about their losses however they threw down the gauntlet so that it would never ever happen once again.
More so, they tried to fix the problem in order to straight challenge the source.
As an US citizen, I chose to get in the military so that I can be a part of the US effort to restore peace throughout the world. In line with this, I have actually aimed to become a military officer. I think that this position is important in securing the nation and its citizens. In addition, being a military officer entails numerous duties and jobs which can help me to develop additional my skills and understanding. Ever considering that I was a kid, I have constantly taken the initiative to be in charge whether in school activities or easy domestic activities.
Because of this, I have developed the competence in fulfilling the duties of a military officer such as guiding, designating, organizing and supporting team members or subordinates which will aid in the achievement of an objective and eventually its success. By using these experiences as a training tool, I know I can become a great and effective military officer. My desire and dedication to be of service to my country and my countrymen are my inspiration to do the best that I can do to carrying out this challenging position.
In order to become a good military officer, one is expected to possess an impeccable judgment and outstanding valor. The public perceived military officers as leaders, organizers, strategists and managers who are all directed in protecting and upholding the sovereign power of the United States of America. Furthermore, they are expected to train and guide their subordinates so that they can properly execute their respective tasks in military operations and battles. The military officers are the ones who give instructions and think of ways on how to execute the plans without casualties.
Meanwhile, as people, officers are expected to be disciplined and always have a presence of mind because they represent the valiant image of the Armed Forces and as well as the authority of the most powerful man in the world, the President of the United States of America. Moreover, if I will be given the chance to do the duties of a military officer, I will be ensuring the safety of my comrades, protecting the interests of my country and promoting peace and order across the globe.
