Worth the $17. Recommend purchasing in PDF format for portability and ease of use (you can email it to yourself or upload on your kindle).
This is by far the most comprehensive NCOER / Awards writing guide that I've ever come across including countless searches for "NCOER bullets" and the information contained in the green and black book "The Writer" series that you can pick-up at the AAFES Clothing Sales Store. It provides examples of excellence, success and needs improvement bullets for each NCO responsibility area on the NCOER and does this in the appropriate format for both the Rater AND the Senior Rater.
The book not only dissects how to write NCOERs and Awards (focuses on AAM, ARCOM and MSM), but it provides so many bullet samples that it almost always jogs your memory and assists you in writing not generic bullets, but specific bullets about the rated NCO.
I've also printed excerpts from this book's PDF format used this coupled with the NCOER... read more

This is the best reference for writing Army evaluations I've bought (although to be fair I've only bought one other book on this subject). It's well written, doesn't waste space on dry, technical details and gets right to the point. It also has tons of pertinent examples. I know I will get a lot of use out of this book. The only constructive criticism I can offer is that it should devote more space to awards. It seems like 3/4 of the book is about NCOERs and only 1/4 is about awards. But overall, easily worth the price.
This Book Should Get An Award!

When I first opened ARMY WRITING GUIDE, I wasn't expecting what I found in it. I had thought that MSG Ray Parker wrote this book only for the benefit of military officers who needed help in preparing performance and award reports (NCOERs) on the soldiers under their commands. I didn't have to read many pages, however, before I found out that these officers routinely ask their soldiers to submit to them a list of achievements, commendable personal traits, heroic battlefield actions, and other superlative data that might be used to recommend their promotions and awards. Thus, in effect, soldiers are given the opportunity to help formulate their own reports leading to advancement.
But without professional advice from someone who's been there and done that, how are soldiers to know what to submit and what not to submit to their officers? And how are they to know the required form in which their suggestions should be written? MSG Ray Parker not only tells his readers "How to... read more
