So what's you reason?

I loved being a babysitter so much, this was the next best job. Razzer

Actually, it was a great opportunity to grow and mold junior Soldiers in my likeness (I hope this was good Big Grin). I was an example for my Soldiers and it made me a better NCO because of a higher standard I held myself up to because I was constantly being watched by my Soldiers.

I was asked this question at my promotion board. this is what I said (approximatley): "I want to be a Noncommissioned officer because it is an honor and a privelege to be a noncommissioned officer in the United States army. Furthermore, I plan on serving in the Army for the forseeable future, therefore I have a vested interest in the training, safety, and welfare of all soldiers."

AR is right. Being an NCO has its rewards. My reasoning was to be able to hae a voice, in regards to how my shop was ran, and to be able to apply some of the skills I have been given, to other soldiers. The number one thing a leader does, is create another leader. Plus, as an e4, many times our hard work, is being added to someone else's evalution. I wanted credit too. For me its best when you get afresh soldier from the school house and he/she hasn't yet been corruped. You have a blank canvas to square away. Its also good to see any of your soldiers succeed.

Whats your reason?


Soldiers may doubt what you say, but they will believe what you do.

This is what i have so far.


As an NCO I would have the opportunity have a positive influence of soldiers and continue to set the example that has been laid out before me by my leaders. This example will help shape what the army looks like not decades from now but in a few short years, and I would be horned to have considered myself to be part of that time honored tradition.

Good answer, but you may want to shorten it and make it sound more like your words and not a book answer.

Besides, you'll be pretty nervous so something that long you may fumble through.

I'm sure it was all you, BUT it may sound like a book answer and it may not flow as easily as it does in the mirror or reading it.

The reasons I wanted to be an NCO was so that I could set examples for others to follow and show them that if I can do it so can they. I don't really get much leadership chances and therefore will be asking for re-assignment to a place where I can lead soldiers.

I'm an old Airman, now a Soldier. And that sounds short and to the point. An excellent answer.

Personally I want to be an NCO so that I can further develop my leadership skills and put them to good use to lead fellow soldiers.

Basically just what jgarner said.


"... whereas, to preserve liberty, it is essential that the whole body of the people always possess arms, and be taught alike, especially when young, how to use them..."

The reason why i want to be a NCO is to lead and train soldier to never give up on goals that is aimed at real life situation. People seem to forget about what the NCOs job entitles it's not for pleasure or profit it is to set a example for the new generation soldiers that we leave on the battlefield and put in charge of soldiers

Soldiers sacrifice a lot to serve. In exchange the Army promised to pay, feed, house, clothe, and train them.

I want to make sure the Army lives up to that promise; the Soldiers deserve it.
