I'm still working on this. I feel like I am not a good writer, so I'm asking you guys for suggestions on my introduction to "Why do you want to become a naval officer? The goal of becoming a Naval Officer had given me direction, and a path to take out of the many roads life provides. I am aware of the challenges this career may provide, but I am also willing to demand myself to reach the respectable and stable occupation. To me, being part of the navy is a honorable goal that would shape me mentally and physically, while keeping a stable career that I hope would last until retirement. There are also few individuals who can boast that they have resided in the career of their passions, and I hope that I can be one of them. I know it's really brief, but the navy would be reading thousands of these, so is it better to keep things short?
