Masters Homeland Security, African-American


I am a 52-year.old American Patriot who wants to continue working until I drop in the defense of my country, my homeland. Thus, I want to complete your program so as to achieve the finest preparation possible for a long and distinguished career working for Homeland Security. I am especially interested in the areas of Information Security and Forensics. Other career options for me as are the CIA, the FBI, or perhaps the Georgia Bureau of Investigation since Atlanta is my current home. I have also long enjoyed teaching and would also consider this as a possible career option.

 I was a soldier in the United States Army from 1977 until my retirement in 1997. I was trained in telecommunications and worked in this area throughout my service. I feel strongly that this period of service, as well as all of my subsequent professional experience in related areas, have provided me with invaluable experience and preparation for a career in Information Security in the service of my country. A hard worker, I have always been a good student and I am profoundly dedicated to lifelong education. I am also a humble, respectful, and compassionate man. When I was stationed overseas, I spent many years working as a volunteer to help the less fortune in soup kitchens, orphanages, etc. I have traveled the world with the US Military, training our soldiers as well of those of our allies. I am a quick learner and highly adaptable. I feel that I am a valuable candidate for your program because of my many years of experience working and teaching in foreign countries in both war time and peace time. I know what I want in life, what it takes to get it, and the value of an education.

 I currently live in Israel and for the past two years I have worked with the Israeli Air Force (COMSEC), under the direction of the United States Embassy, in the area of information security. I am responsible for receipt, custody, issue, safeguarding, and destruction of accounting records and material as well as the maintenance of up-to-date records and the submission of all required accounting reports. Previously, I worked for General Dynamics as a Temporary Contractor and Network Engineer in the area of Information Technology. I was responsible for the daily operation and maintenance of the Fixed Tactical Internet (FTI) Enhanced Position Locating and Reporting System (EPLRS) communication networks. I was engaged in the area of data transfer for digital tracking (FBCB2) Situational Awareness and other digital systems, providing connectivity to other simulations and training systems. I was responsible for generating and issuing sensitive encrypted communications keys to supported military units and civilian organizations and maintaining secure communications. Earlier, I was a civilian employee of the military professionally engaged with the Combined Arms Training Center (CATC) of the Seventh Army Training Command (ATC) in Chantilly, Virginia in the area of Local Communication Security Management Software (LCMS). I served as an Instructor and Subject Matter Expert (SME) in the field of Communications Security.

 I feel strongly that in time of war, with our country in deep peril, it is my duty to continue my education in our defense. I have enormous respect for XXXX University and I feel well qualified to enter one of the finest programs in the country. It is the only program to which I am applying and I thank you for considering my application.
