Submission of Recommendations
officer  of  the  individual  concerned  must  be forwarded   to   the   commanding   officer   for endorsement. TIMELINESS An   awards   recommendation   must   be submitted   as   soon   as   possible   following   the act,  achievement,  or  service  upon  which  it  is based if the awards system is to be successful. Submit   recommendation   for   meritorious service  when  an  individual’s  detachment  is anticipated.  When  a  reporting  senior  is  being detached   and   feels   that   the   service   of   a subordinate   merits   recognition,   the   Personal Award   Recommendation   form,   OPNAV 1650/3,  should  be  completed  for  the  observed period. It   should   be   retained   within   the command, pending detachment   of   the individual. If at the time the current reporting senior   feels   the   latter   portion   of   the individual’s  tour  merits  recognition,  the recommendation  should  be  combined  with  the earlier  one;  if  not,  the  recommendation  of  the predecessor s h o u l d    b e    f o r w a r d e d    f or consideration   on   its   own   merits   by   the awarding  authority  empowered  to  approve  the award. An   award   for   meritorious   service terminating   with   retirement   or   separation should  be  processed  so  that  the  presentation may  be  made  at  the  individual’s  current  duty station. PREPARATION Prepare  recommendations  for  personal awards  on  OPNAV  Form  1650/3.  Instructions for  the  preparation  of  the  awards  form  can  be found  in  chapter  2  of  the  Awards   Manual. When  additional  space  is  required,  add  sheets of  standard  size  paper.  Use  a  separate  form for  each  award  being  recommended. SUMMARY  OF  ACTION Since   each   award   recommendation   is evaluated   on   the   merits   of   the   justification, this part of the recommendation is required in all   cases.   Avoid   generalities   and   excessive use  of  superlatives. Present   an   objective summary   giving   specific   examples   of   the performance  and  manner  of  accomplishing  it together with the results and benefits derived. CITATION A  proposed  citation,  which  is  a  condensed version  of  the  summary  of  action,  must accompany   the   recommendation.   Although   a citation  is  laudatory  and  formal,  it  must  be factual  and  contain  no  classified  information. Non-combat   citations   are   limited   to   22 typewritten lines. Opening  Sentence The citation begins with a standard phrase describing  the  degree  of  meritorious  or  heroic service  as  specified  in  the  Awards  Manual  for each   award,   the   duty   assignment   of   the individual,   the   inclusive   dates   of   service   on which  the  recommendation  is  based,  and  if desired,  a  description  of  operations  of  the  unit to  which  the  individual  is  attached. Statement  of  Heroic/Meritorious Achievement or Service The  second  part  of  the  citation  identifies the  recipient  by  name,  describes  specific  duty assignments, accomplishments, and   the outstanding  personal  attributes  displayed.  The description   of   the   individual’s   achievements must  show  clearly  that  they  were  sufficient  to justify  the  award  recommended.  If  duty  was performed  in  combat,  the  citation  should  so state. 10-2
