Key Points to Writing
  • If you haven't already, take a writing class

  • 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 Senior Non-Commissioned Officer (SNCO) of the Quarter example has been taken out of a IMT document.  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 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.)

I like the way they do the quarterly award packages with the job description added as the lead in and the Acronym List as the closing. This is great because it allows the panel to know what the person is suppose to be doing and second, it allows the supervisor to modify the job description to accurately reflect duties when it comes EPR time.
