Navy Eval Phrases

Sometimes it's hard to get started writing that Eval. You want to produce a great report but don't want to use the same old lines as everyone else --you want it to stand out. But often, we're so used to hearing the same old Navy jargon over and over that it's hard to think of anything else. Take a look at these performance descriptions 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 Eval or maybe just get some ideas, these are a great start.
