English Comp will do.
- WRITE!!! The more you do it, the better you get.
- Ask for HELP, not knowing what you are doing can hurt you, your "Airmen" and unit.
- Use various writing resources like Merriam-Webster Online
- Use a spell checker. (F7 Word)
- Remember, there is a purpose for writing a letter or MFR.

MEMORANDUM FOR ## MSS/DPMAR
FROM: SSgt <FNAME> <MI>. <LNAME>
SUBJECT: U.S. Arrival Dates for <FNAME> <MaidenName]
1. The purpose of this letter is to explain the conflicting dates between my
marriage certificate and the later date <FNAME> <MI>. <LNAME>, my wife, entered
the U.S. as referenced on the Designated Location Move Letter. On ## <Month>
<Year> I PCSed to <BASE> AFB, <State>. from Osan AB, Korea on unaccompanied PCS
orders. <FNAME> arrived in the U.S. with a non-immigrant fiancée visa on ##
<Month> <Year> for our wedding on ## <Month> <Year>. Due to an expected
departure date of late <Month> <Year> for an AEF deployment to the 1st ERS, RAF
Akrotiri, Cyprus my wife flew back to Korea on ## <Month> <Year>. The 3 weeks <FNAME>
was in <State>, and the remaining time before my deployment, was not sufficient
time to complete the three month process to file proper forms that would award <FNAME>
permanent U.S. resident status.
2. Without permanent residency <FNAME> was not able to return to the U.S.
without first re-accomplishing her visa. After <FNAME> arrived back in Korea on
## <Month> <Year>, the two of us began working on an immigrant CR1 visa. The CR1
visa would allow <FNAME> permanent resident status upon entering the U.S. On ##
<Month> <Year>, <FNAME> received her immigrant visa and on ## <Month> <Year> she
arrived in the U.S. giving her permanent resident status.
3. Attached is a copy of my orders to RAF Akrotiri, Cyprus. Please contact
