Letter of introduction
United States Army
I would like to be in the United States Army. I have worked toward this goal by talking to the nearest Army recruiter, reading www.goarmy.com , and by completing weekly physical training with the local Army sergeants. Some of my objectives in the Army is to graduate with a degree in computer science, so I can be qualified to be an officer. Furthermore, I want to continue giving advice to other young adults who want to join the Army.
Together with my current Sergeant, Sergeant Smith we have talked to teenagers about the benefits of joining the Army. We cover the basics of the Army from yearly salary, G.I bill, housing, and the various job choses. M.E.P.S, Basic Training, stationing, and requirements are also what we talk about. We do this for many different reasons; to make sure teenagers know what the Army is about, how it operates, and to make sure we answer all of their questions so there is no stone left unturned.
“Most people run a race to see who is the fastest; I run a race to see who had the most guts” (Steve Prefonteine www.runnersfeed.com). In the years I have been running, I have learned many things. When you run you are not always going to be perfect or preform the best. You will be the good at running when you learn how to react to you failure. Over the many years I have been running, I have learned you need to not dwell on your imperfections; you need to learn how to thrive on them. You need to be more dedicated by either working harder in your workouts or accept the failure and learn from it. We all have days that one is at their best or a day where even with the best effort, one cannot achieve their goals. This lessons I have learned will make me perfect for the Army because no matter how hard it gets, no matter how much I want to quit, I will not because I know how to deal with it and turn it into a positive and thrive on it.
