Submissions must include your name, rank, subject you are writing about from the list on the Shared Experiences page, and the rank you were at the time of your experiences. Additional information such as the unit or type of unit you were in at the time can be included but is not necessary. If you wish to publish anonymously, that is possible, but we still need to put in a header (“MSG writing about his most difficult problem as an E5 Team Leader,” for example.)
You may get the original idea on what you want to say from multiple sources. For example, go to the Shared Experiences page and look at the topics – they may suggest something. Or you may already have an idea and are not sure if it fits. You read of an issue another NCO is having and want to suggest a solution. In any case, email us and ask. We can help!
When you have decided on what you want to say and where you want it published, write. There is no minimum or maximum length requirement. If you are having trouble, again, email us. Once done, submit your writing as a text document (Word preferred) to the NCOLCoE & USASMA historian. The History Section will review and make editing suggestions, if any to the writer before final publication.
