Personal military biographies are used to identify the accomplishments and abilities of current or former service members. Writing a personal military biography is similar to generating a standard resume, though greater attention is paid to your military training, awards and stations than your civilian education and job experience. Because there are many ways to format this information, personal military biographies offer you an opportunity to highlight the elements of your military career about which you are most proud.
