The following Non-Commissioned Officer (NCO) of the Year example has been taken out of IMT viewer so the formatting might be slightly 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 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).
