Greetings all, as you have no doubt noticed I am an Enlisted Soldier who has applied to West Point class of 2014. I joined the Army out of high school in 2005 and have have been serving since. The Army has given me so many opportunities that I would never have had outside that I will undoubtedly be making a career of it. The people are generally awesome too. I was promoted to Staff Sergeant a while ago and would have a very promising career ahead of me in the Corps of Non-Commissioned Officers should I choose. However, I have weighed my choices and have chosen to become an Officer instead. I wont fully delve into my thought processes there, but I have given myself a task and I will fulfill it, preferably through USMA.
