A Primer on Navy FitReps

A good Navy Fitness Report (FitRep) is a true work of art. The perfect amount of space, the exact bullets detailing all the work completed over the last year. Retired naval aviator (and reader) Randy sent me these below. I think you probably know folks (hopefully not many) who fit these descriptions:

He has an overdeveloped sense of unawareness.”

Would be categorized as lazy but for absence.”

At least his education hasn’t gone to his head.”

He has given me a new definition of stoicism: he grins and I bear it.”

The improvement in his handwriting from the last review has revealed his inability to spell.”

Let’s not neglect our friends from across the pond. The British Military writes OFR’s (officer fitness reports). The form used for Royal Navy and Marines fitness reports is the S206. The following are actual excerpts taken from people’s “206’s.”

  1. Great reminiscences…as a senior enlisted sort, I once wrote an evaluation submission for a Navy Warrant Officer who happened to be a reservist sent to Winter Harbor, Maine…an unusual turn of events..it turned out not too badly either….of course, nothing ends up the way it is submitted, so I wasn’t offended at the end of the day…it’s just the way things go….k

  2. EB: Love that 206. Good firepower, comfortable ride. What is not to like?
    Kris: Glad to hear you helped the Warrant out. I’ve written dozens of these things for myself and others. It is a fine art. . .
