Take your time and read through the instruction but you need to open them and put them in your package as an enclosure "Transcripts received by the
applicant should be removed from their envelopes and labeled as enclosures to the application." OPNAVINST1420.1B page 8-9

Hello everyone,
I am a SN and do not know the first thing about putting in a package. What is the first through last thing that I should do? Really need help. Here is my personal statement any feedback would be great:

PERSONAL STATEMENT

My passion for serving my country came at a very young age when I would visit my great uncle and listen to his Marine war stories from his time in Vietnam. As I grew older I did not know what career I wanted to pursue but I always knew I wanted to be a leader.

As an all-district, all-conference football player and team captain, during high school, I lacked maturity and did not focus on my classes, as reflected by my transcripts. Since then, I have matured and gained a new perspective of what is required of me and what I personally expect for myself. Within the year I have been in the navy, I have completed 30 of the 60 credits required for an Associate in Accounting at American Military University with a 4.0 GPA while being a fulltime sailor and volunteering.

The Seaman to Admiral Program is the next step on my journey towards becoming a Naval Surface Warfare Officer. Continually setting ambitious goals and high standards for myself is a cornerstone of my personality. This program affords me the opportunity to fulfill my dream of becoming a Naval Officer and reach my greatest potential in the Navy. It allows me to complete my Bachelor’s degree and build the foundation needed to one day become the next great Chief of Naval Operations!

My time as a Master-at-Arms has made me an exceptional candidate for Surface Warfare community due to the core values and arduous training requirements I have undergone, allowing me the ability to take charge in any situation. It is a privilege to work as a Master-at-Arms, knowing that safety and security of the installation is in my hands. It also has enabled me to live my life according to the oath “that I will wear my shield of authority with dignity and restraint, and promote by example high standards of conduct, appearance, courtesy and performance”. This responsibility is not one that I take lightly and will hold myself to an even higher standard as a Naval Officer.

Throughout my short career I have grown as a person and as a leader. Staying calm and commanding the scene during a life threatening car accident was critical while I assessed the situation, provided bystander crowd control and coordinated with emergency medical personnel to determine appropriate medical treatment. I continue to hone these skills everyday as I lead fellow junior and senior Sailors while conducting tuition assistance and qualification training.

Within my first year on board I was fully qualified in my job, allowing me to start school early. As the only seaman Duty Armorer at my command, I am responsible for the issue, inventory and maintenance of 428 weapons, 76,115 rounds of ammunition, 26 AA&E keys, and various police equipment totaling over tens of thousands of dollars. I am also responsible for the qualifying of 3 Second-Class Petty Officers and 3 Third-Class Petty Officer Duty Armorers.

As a Surface Warfare officer, I will continue to make sound decisions that affect the safety, success, and well-being of all the Sailors within my command. I am devoted to my Navy and will continue to uphold the core values of Honor, Courage, and Commitment. I want to lead the Navy in a new direction; manned or unmanned. Leading change will be difficult and require energetic and motivated officers who can adapt to new environments quickly. I know that I have what it takes, because great leaders are created, not born. Being selected for a commissioning program will afford me the opportunity to enhance my leadership skills and stand alongside my fellow officers, prepared to lead outstanding men and women in tomorrow’s Navy. Thus, my pursuit of a commission is not a request to be an Officer, but rather an obligation to lead those around me as we reach for greatness.

Thanks for the input. I have read this thing front and back with a comb. Not trying to assume any instruction though.

SN Mosley,

I understand that you are new to the Navy and are still learning all of the in's and out's. I uploaded my package so that you and everyone else will have something to use as a guide to help you on your journey while applying for commissioning programs. I want to first recommend reading OPNAVINST 1420.1B front to back and understand all of its content. I do want to however touch on your previous post. I am angered that you would post a "personal statement" that is not your and claim it as your own. Yes applying for these programs is hard and sometimes it can be confusing and no one has the right answer. That is the point, it is suppose to be difficult and require meticulous research and scrutiny while putting together your package. In addition it teach you to network with other who have found success in these programs so that you can learn from their mistakes and successes. That is why I uploaded my package for everyone to use as they go through this process. I have spent the better part of three years writing and re-writing my personal statement. It is to be uses as a guide and not something for you to plagiarize. This is my intellectual property and I am appalled that you put your name on it and post it to the very forum that you stole it from. Being in the Navy whether enlisted or officer means that you need to have integrity. I am not going to sit here and tell you what integrity means but I would seriously rethink your "personal statement" and why you want to be a Naval Officer. I am not saying that you should not apply or that I will not help you in the future but I think you seriously shot yourself in the foot with your carless action as you stole my and possibly others works and claimed it as your own.

Think long and hard about what you did and what our core values are!
Honor, Courage, and Commitment.
Get your shit together shipmate!
