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 Military Volunteer (Special Awards/Recognition Program) example has been taken out of an 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.)  As for this particular award , it appears to be a USAFE award.  I am still looking for a reference concerning it.

Great package! Quick, Simple and to the Point.   Only a minor Numbering problem, numbers under 10 are spelled out unless they deal with time or follow numbers larger than 10 in the same bullet.
