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.
  • The only person looking out for your Airman is YOU!
  • Use a spell checker.  F7 works well in MS Word.
  • Use various writing resources like Merriam-Webster Online.

The following Example has been taken out of a FORMFLOW 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.

I will attempt to give a little insight to the entire process if I know it.

If you have anything you would like to submit, please do so.  Also, if you have found this information useful, please let me know. Everyone of these items has taken considerable amount of time to put together.  Please use the ads on this site to help support the site.  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.)

General Notes:

This package is weak.  It only seems to focus on system upgrades, and only one at that.  Concerning the focus of the award, it was a good bullet for an EPR or another award, but doesn't drive toward the purpose of outstanding intel contributor.  (IMHO)
