Military biographies, just like any personal biography, help to identify abilities and accomplishments, but of former and current military service members. Basically, it looks just like a resume but here you talk more about your military achievements, awards and trainings.
You begin your military biography with name, branch, rank, deployment status, current place of deployment, age, date of birth and hometown. Then you continue with chronological listing of your military history. Additionally, do not forget to add your military awards, honors, and decorations, especially Purple Hearts and Bronze Stars, service ribbons and other qualifications. Then, you can talk about your military school and camp trainings. Also, you should remember to list chronologically your rank ascension history including dates. Finally, finish your military biography with family background and civilian school you attended. Or you can combine your military and civilian schooling.
To tell the truth, there’s so much to talk about that I personally would be at loss what to write about and would just ask to write my assignment for me, but instead using a good template is a life-saver. This would put me on the right track and give some ideas on how to format and organize a military biography and not confuse it with, for example, the character biography.
