NCOER Performance Report Phrases

Sometimes it's hard to get started writing that NCO-ER. You want to produce a great report but don't want to use the same old tired lines --you want it to stand out. But it's hard to think of anything besides the traditional Army phrasing you're used to hearing. Take a look at these phrases and see if they help. A lot of these are so leading that when you read them, you automatically finish them with what you intended to say. Whether you want to jazz up the entries on your NCOER or maybe just get some ideas, these are a great start.
