AFI 35-101, Chapter 13

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 real fast in MS Word.
  • Use Merriam-Webster Online to improve your vocabulary.

The following example has been taken out of a IMT 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.
