Summary of Action Examples


Since each award recommendation is evaluated on the merits of the justification, the Summary of Action is critical. It is required in all cases except command awarded Navy and Marine Corps Achievement Medals at Navy units; all Marine Corps awards require a detailed Summary of Action.

The introductory paragraph in block 25 should list the command, period of action, position held and overall achievement(s). Specific accomplishments which directly bear on the overall achievement should be listed as bullet statements.

Avoid generalities and excessive use of superlatives. Present an objective summary, giving specific 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.

Construction Mechanic Second Class Stinger is strongly recommended for the Navy Commendation Medal for his superior service while serving as the Administrative Leading Petty Officer and Department Career Counselor, Public Works Department Sigonella from August 2009 to June 2011. His performance in filling these critical billets has been nothing short of extraordinary. He is a hard working and productive Seabee, who continues to make a positive impression on this command while working out of rate. His "Can-Do" attitude and quick learning provided great dividends in the critical billets he filled.

In 2009, CM2 assumed the role of Department Career Counselor for 128 Seabees assigned to Public Works, NAS Sigonella. This critical and demanding job, normally performed by a First Class Petty Officer, placed CM2's daily performance in full view of departmental leadership and he eagerly took charge. Adding to the challenge, the YN1 assigned to the department transferred early and the billet was gapped for nearly 19 months. As a result, CM2 Stinger immediately volunteered to assume the administrative departmental duties normally assigned to the YN1. This was clearly an enormous challenge for CM2 Stinger but he performed beyond all expectations on all fronts.

As the Admin Leading Petty Officer, CM2 assessed and maintained service records, submitted missing qualifications, awards, and certifications, tracked medical/dental readiness and special requests with minimal discrepancies. Also, he prepared and tracked over 155 pieces of official correspondence, processed 395 leave requests, drafted designation letters, made corrections to all evaluations and fitness reports prior to forwarding to NAVFAC EURAFSWA Admin and/or NAVPERS. Additionally, he prepared and submitted ERD, BAH/OHA requests, and Command Sponsorship packages for service members assigned. CM2 filled the administrative Petty Officer billet at PWD Sigonella with the skills of a seasoned NC/YN1.

As Command Career Counselor Petty Officer Stinger spent countless hours and even off-duty time learning every detail regarding the many programs affecting enlisted career paths. CM2 directed and managed the department ESO, prepared packages and conducted 26 re-enlistments. In addition, he managed the (CMS) Career Management System, used to apply for orders, conducted numerous CDB's, scheduled 20 service members for TAP, coordinated 79 operational screenings for transfer and processed 76 transfer and separation information sheets. Most notably, CM2 made it a priority to clearly understand the Perform to Serve process and its subtleties in order to provide the best guidance and advice to our Sailors. Additionally, CM2 supported the troops by assisting them with the submission and tracking of 22 OTEIP applications, EML requests and personnel action requests for adjustment of PRD and EAOS and spouse collocation and special programs. Furthermore, he assisted 3 members in the coordination and preparation for their retirement ceremonies and overall transfer to Fleet Reserve.

In addition to his other duties CM2 Stinger held several other key collateral duties for PWD Sigonella. He managed to represent the command as the PWD Urinalysis Program, Command Pass Coordinator, Personnel Liaison Representative and Mustering Petty Officer. Petty Officer Stinger has been the go-to-guy for all things administrative the last two years. He has been an outstanding customer service representative and advocate to all those assigned.

CM2 has also volunteered off duty hours coaching community youth soccer, participating in cleanups for Italian community and raising money for Seabee Balls by bagging groceries, car washes and yard sales.

CM2 Stinger's patience, compassion and clear thinking has been invaluable in advising and guiding Seabees through what could have been very stressful life-changing career moves and decisions. His professionalism and efforts unquestionably provided exceptional career counseling and admininistrative service to our organization. His administrative skills and exceptional professional competence have contributed significantly to PWD Sigonella's high state of readiness. Petty Officer Stinger's outstanding achievements are most deserving of the Navy and Marine Corps Commendation Medal.
