Key Points to Writing
  • If you haven't already, take a writing class
  • WRITE!!! The more you do it, the better you get.
  • Don't be afraid to ask for HELP.
  • The only person looking out for either you or your subordinate is YOU!
  • Use a spell checker (F7 in Office) 
  • Remember, writing doesn't have to win to REWARD!
  • Use various writing resources like Merriam-Webster Online.

The following USAF Supply Technician Of The Year 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 one of the 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.)

General Notes:

 Very good package.  Definitely can understand the impact of the individual.  I like the way the author stuck with only symbols instead of bouncing around.  (i.e. $ / dollars or % / percent) There were a couple of minor mistakes within the award. The author stayed with one way of addressing military units, ###th, except for the wing then it was, ##.  There were a couple of numbering problems, mainly those dealing with time.  Remember numbers associated with time use numeric form.  (e.g. 9 days, 7 hours, 2 months)
