The following Non-Commissioned Officer (NCO) of the Quarter example has been taken out of IMT viewer so the formatting might be slightly off.  I did not change 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.)

Very good package with excellent quantification of bullets.  One thing I really found of interest was the writer highlighting the members extensive studies of his/her career.  This adds depth and shows the person interest in their profession.  (To be fair though, this type of bullet often is used as filler...  It all depends on the writer, you be the judge of this bullet).  The only thing that detracted from this packages in my opinion was tagging Significant Self-Improvement to what appears to be a local Col's opinions.
