Part III of the NCOER, Duty Description

This is an effort to list MOS-specific examples of Areas of Special Interest but we need your input. Examples received will be listed below.

Areas of Special Emphasis

In the Areas of Special Emphasis block, enter additional duties associated with your job or MOS (if you have any -not everyone does). For example, in a maintenance shop, a person's additional duty, might be Tool Room Monitor, Training NCO or TMDE Monitor. These are duties that you are specifically responsible for, in addition to the duties described in the Daily Duties and Scope block.

Appointed Duties

In the Appointed Duties block, enter additional duties assigned to you that are outside your job or MOS. These duties often support the entire unit and not just your work center or section. For example BOSS Representative, UPL or Career Counselor. Not everyone has an appointed duty.
