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.)

STELLAR Example of a Non-Commissioned Officer quarterly package.  The only thing that I questioned is the reuse of:

- Studied extensive on-line articles from Power Quality magazines and electrical power production web sites
  -- Remains current with rapidly developing technology of electrical generation/power distribution equipment

In both this award and the prior quarter's award, but that is the luxury at looking at awards in the past tense you can pick up on these.  Since it was used twice (and most like repeatedly) it would be a much better bullet if it was only one line, thus removes the idea that it is being used as filler.
