There was a young SSgt who worked in our training detachment. He wanted to be an officer more than anything to have a better life for his growing family and to have a larger impact on our service. Initially, his scores were too low and he had to raise them to get his shot. This young leader would come to work early to study, be in the books every chance he had, and continue to study at home. Also, he taught more than most instructors and appeared to be a damn good dad and father at home. He was driven. His hard work paid off and now this Lt has a larger platform to inspire others and I am certain he is striving to be the best in his new job. What is driving you?
