U.S. Army Officer

Upon graduating college, I want to become an officer in the U.S. Army. More specifically I would like to work in the field of public relations as a 42A, which is a public relations officer. To achieve my goal, I am pursuing a degree in Strategic Communications and have been speaking to many recruiters.

Interestingly enough many changes are currently going on in the U.S. Army. From many different policies being implemented to different officers dictating what is now the new and acceptable way to where to uniform, the U.S. Army is always changing.

The U.S. Army has announced that a new hand grenade is in the works. With the new grenade soldiers can choose its desired effects: fragmentation or concussion. This is definitely a step in the right direction for the Army because soldiers would normally have to carry two different grenades when now they can carry one.

The U.S. Army has also created a new program, A12, which allows for soldiers and citizens to provide innovative ideas to the Army that could be implemented. The program will be on milSuite and CAC holders can access the program and provide input. This is great because the Army really needs to be open to innovative ideas from its soldiers.

Sadly enough the U.S. Army is facing some controversy. An audit reveals that $6.5 trillion dollars of errors have been made in accounting when examining invoices that are required to support the budget. This is extremely bad for the public relations of the Army as well as the future of the budget since it was mishandled this time.

In conclusion, the U.S. Army is going through many changes and controversies now that could very well effect my career in the future. The points made earlier are no exception and could continue to change and mold my future path.
