There is little or no argument that the four services (U.S. Air Force, U.S. Army, U.S. Marine Corps, and U.S. Navy) have different approaches when performing an evaluation and appraisal of their officers. One unfailing theme is that each service's goal is to document an individual's military career and provide a consistent stream of reliable information to promotion, administrative, and command selection boards. This one document whether it's the Untied States Navy's or Marine Corp's Fitness Report (FITREP), Air Force's Officer Performance Report (OPR), or the Army's Officer Evaluation Report (OER), all of these records have the greatest impact on each officer's military career and promotion opportunities. Could it be possible that an examination of each services documentation process could lead to a better format? To this end, this paper contains a broad review and analysis of the services instructions and guidance, discusses the strenghts, weakness, and offers recommendations of possible improvements to their respective evaluation systems.
