    Few years ago, when I was a NCO in the Navy, I had this nifty book I bought that was full of solid information, example bullets and guidelines on how to write evaluations and awards. I'm hitting a brick wall finding one for the Army, i've found books on Amazon that claim to be all inclusive with oer/ncoer/awards, but i'm not sold on buying some book i have no clue about. Does any Soldier here know of such book or have a recommendation?

    And why E6's are NCO's in the marines is beyond me, which is why you can't say that sort of thing for a direct conversion to other branches ranks. E6 in the navy is grouped in with E1-E5. I could see E7-E9 being called non commissioned officers as that is a big responsibility they have and they pretty much are in another level above E1-E6... but marines call E6 NCO and they defiantely don't need to be bunched in with E7-E9.

    I thought Marine NCO's started at E4?

    :ugh: Just hard for me to comprehend grouping E6's with E7-E9.

    found all of those Ranger...just wanting to know if there's a specific one (or few) that you or others have read and recommend. I probably will take a gamble on the McIntosh "Effective Military Writing" book, since I had planned on getting the small unit leadership book as well.
