First I want to challenge myself further by serving in the US Army JAG Corps As a naturalized American citizen of South Korean descent I am grateful for the opportunities America has given to my family Despite starting with limited resources when my family first came to the United States some 16 years ago my parents became owners of two successful small businesses Their modest success along with several generous scholarships allowed me to attend college and eventually become the first attorney in my family Joining the Army JAG Corps is the biggest part of my American dream Furthermore I have strong interest in public service During college I volunteered as a hospice caregiver as a temporary live-in teacher at an orphanage in Inchon Korea and as a helper at a Christian center for the homeless Whether it is by advocating on the behalf of a service member during court martial or by providing legal assistance in his or her civilian affairs I want to serve the interests of our service members Finally military service has been a proud part of my family history My grandfather is a Korean War vet who served in the South Korean education unit and my father served in the Korean Air Force In addition Mr Leonard Johnson my English tutor who served as an intelligence officer during the Vietnam War shared many of his adventure stories Influenced by their stories of valor and service I successfully completed my schools ROTC program in the Philippines where I had lived for four years before immigrating to the United States Long hours of drill formations and PTs rather than unnerving me helped me learn the value of discipline and camaraderie I gained many fond memories and good friends through the program Thus these experiences contributed to my decision to join to the Army JAG CorpsPositive qualities I bring to the US Army JAG CorpsFirst I have extensive leadership
