Key Points to Writing
  • WRITE!!! The more you do it, the better you get.
  • Ask for HELP, the only person looking out for #1 is you.
  • Use a spell checker.  F7 works well in MS Word.
  • Use Merriam-Webster Online to improve your vocabulary.

The following Air Force Communications and Information (C&I) award example has been taken out of IMT viewer so the formatting might be off.  I did not changed mission information, only names to protect myself and the people I have received the information from.  If you have anything you would like to submit, please do so.  If you have found this information useful, please let me know. Everyone of these letters has taken considerable amount of time to put together.  Please treat yourself to something special from Amazon.com by using one of ads on the page.  We will both get something out of it.  (All money gathered pays for hosting fees and domain fees.  HONESTLY, when I see money come in it also prompts me to work harder on the site).

NOTE:

Very Strong Award Package!  Action/Impact on almost every line but many % lack quantification.  This lack of quantification and the first three bullets of "LEADERSHIP ABILITIES AND MANAGEMENT EXPERIENCES" are the only marks against it.  The Leadership abilities does show leadership but i do not believe they truely reflect the intent of the C&I package.
