Summary of Action (Justification)
Because each award recommendation is evaluated on the merits of the justification, the Summary of Action is critical. It is required for most medals but not for command-awarded Navy and Marine Corps Achievement Medals at Navy units. All Marine Corps awards require a detailed Summary of Action. When writing the summary of action/justification, avoid generalities and the excessive use of superlatives (unparalleled allegiance to ideals, etc). Be specific and write an objective summary, providing examples of the performance and the manner in which it was accomplished, together with the results and benefits derived. The amount of detail and supporting documentation required depends upon the circumstances and the nature of the award being recommended. In general, a single page will suffice. When additional space is required, add sheets of standard size paper; however, use continuation pages sparingly. Ref NAVSEAINST 1650.1H, 31 Jul 09.

During this period, Sergeant Smalley distinguished himself with the following significant accomplishments:
Sergeant Smalley coordinated timelines for eight movements of equipment and personnel for the squadron s deployment with Special Purpose Marine Air Ground Task Force (SPMAGTF) in support of Operation Inherent Resolve (OIR). He coordinated with Marine Aircraft Group 11 (MAG-11) and 3D Marine Aircraft Wing (3D-MAW) logistics departments, as well as the G-5, in planning and execution of the deployment. Each of the eight movements contained their own intricacies, and were individually planned and executed. The main elements of the movement were an advanced party passenger aircraft, main body passenger aircraft, three cargo C-17 aircraft, two F/A-18 coronets, a lead maintenance C-17, and a trail maintenance KC-130 cargo aircraft.
During the embark pack-out phase of execution, Sergeant Smalley planned and loaded 60 pallet positions, in five separate chalks, to be transported aboard three Air Force C-17 aircraft, a lead maintenance C-17 and a trail maintenance KC-130.

His professional technical knowledge of the embark system allowed the equipment to be delivered on time, thereby enabling the squadron to conduct combat operations three days after arriving in the area of operations.

Sergeant Smalley's use of non-critical supplies as ballast provided the squadron with much needed flexibility that ensured mission success while conforming to strict standards and timelines set by higher echelons of command. His high level of attention to detail was evident when the actual load-out was less than 10 percent off planned weights that were made months in advance.
During the execution phase, Sergeant Smalley's planning of barracks turnover and vehicle storage maximized the squadron s Marines available time, while meeting embark timelines with no delay of any movement. Sergeant Smalley coordinated a baggage marking plan that resulted in zero lost or misplaced bags. He also carefully organized a squadron-spaces turnover that included key facility maintenance actions, to be concurrently completed while deployed, thus saving the squadron the hardship of working around construction during normal stateside operations.
Sergeant Smalley planned, coordinated and provided transportation and lodging to over 180 marines on the coronet movement. He worked with multiple personnel at Naval Air Station Oceana and Naval Air Station Rota to ensure all logistical support was met. His transportation vehicle plan at both domestic and foreign locations solved key logistics problems that ensured critical timelines were met.
Sergeant Smalley assumed the duties of the logistics chief while the logistics Gunnery Sergeant was deployed with the advanced party. During this critical three week time period, Sergeant Smalley displayed key leadership abilities by fulfilling the position of a Staff Noncommissioned Officer, leading marines, tracking multiple movements, planning and executing eight complex movements, and working with multiple agencies which ensured mission success of the squadron's deployment.
Sergeants Smalley's relentless work ethic and professional leadership were the driving force behind the squadron's movement as he personally ensured mission success and the seamless embarkation of the 232 Marines in the squadron. Sergeant Smalley's initiative, perseverance, and total dedication to duty reflected credit upon him, and were in keeping with the highest traditions of the Marine Corps and the United States Naval Service.
