  • Use various writing resources like 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.
