The following Airman of the Quarter example has been taken out of IMT viewer so the formatting might be slightly 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 award examples has taken considerable amount of time to put together.  Please treat yourself to something special from 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.)

Not a bad package.  There is a lot of good information with good impact.  There are a couple of minor Acronym Errors, remember if you use note an acronym use it otherwise it is just filler. Second, if you use tag lines in the catagories, make sure it fits.  Epitomizes the "whole-person" concept under Significant Self-Improvement is good, but the bullets do not support the comment...
