AMN OF THE YEAR - 2005 Example

Award Cat: AMN
Winner: ???

AFI 36-2845

Key Points to Writing
  • WRITE!!! The more you do it, the better you get.
  • Ask for HELP, the only person looking out for #1 is you.
  • Use a spell checker.  F7 works well in MS Word.
  • Use Merriam-Webster Online to improve your vocabulary.

The following Example has been taken out of IMT viewer so the formatting might be 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 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 will attempt to give a little insight to the entire process if I know it.

  Pretty good package. Suggest limiting the number of sub-bullets.  The norm is one main bullet and one or two sub-bullets.  There were two acronyms used only once, AEF and BNC, and should of been dropped.  there are a couple of minor numbering issues.
