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 example has been taken out of a IMT document.  I have changed mission information 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.

If you have anything you would like to submit, please do so.  Also, if you have found this information useful, please let me know.

Note:

  Not a very good package when you compare it to the previous one, 2003 2nd Quarter SNCO, on the same person.  Some of the bullets have been used before.  This is important to note for both supervisors and judges.  Look at events, and keep a calendar handy.  If the writer uses a past accomplishment, then it should reflect badly on the nominee...  Or at least remove that bullet from the package before scoring it.
