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 Civilian of the Quarter award example has been taken from an AF1206 - IMT 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.  (Money gathered pays for hosting and domain fees plus site growth items.  HONESTLY, when I see money come in it also prompts me to work harder on the site.)

  Very good quarterly package.  There are only a couple of small problems but the meat of the award package out shines the issues.  The first minor issues was the acronym for PA it was never used in the package.  Second, zero should of been "0".  Finally, an ellipse is three periods"..." not two "..".  Other than those slight problems, each line has impact and is quantified.
