If you have received an adverse evaluation report, you may be wondering how to proceed. When it comes to rebutting and appealing evaluation reports, one size does not fit all. Each of the services has a unique approach to evaluation reports. For example, the Navy’s approach to Fitness Reports is not exactly the same as the Marines. Likewise, the Air Force and Army also have their own unique way of evaluating their personnel. Additionally, what works well for an officer, does not always work well for enlisted personnel. I will tell you from experience that submitting a successful rebuttal and/or appeal to an adverse evaluation appeal is not easy. It requires someone to get deep into the appropriate regulations, orders or instructions and search for both administrative and substantive errors in the evaluation. Evaluation appeals are time consuming and tedious. In addition to this being in-depth work, fighting an adverse evaluation can be an uphill battle as you can imagine. However, I have the experience to help you with this. I know what to look for and how to help you. Your career is on the line if you have received an adverse evaluation report. Don’t wait to act.
