As an NCO I'm almost embarrassed to admit that my writing skills are compared to those of a middle school student. It's difficult for me to communicate in writing, for example writing counselings, awards, memos, NCOER bullets. I feel as if I have to use a lot of brain power to articulate a coherent idea. My grammar is terrible, I've struggle with this so much. Any advise??

You've already had a few propose formal writing courses. A good composition course at a community college would go far to improve your abilities as long as you are serious. I would also advise you to read. You would be surprised how much reading actually affects one's ability to write. By reading more you will pick up on style, grammar, and vocabulary that you can use to improve your own writing.
You communicated pretty well here. Now, if you want to get better, read. Read everything. Read the cereal box as you eat breakfast. Read billboards as you drive. Read books. Read. Read. Read. Then write. Write. Write. Write. It's like any other skill. Practice makes better (never perfect)
