By name list for promotion?(self.army)
submitted4 years agobyshawnadavis35F
So, points came out today and I see that Ive made the list for SSG. Does this mean that Im going to get picked up, or is there a possibility that my SGM is going to play fuck-fuck games with me (I just attended NCO of the month board, was told I was going to promotion board regardless of points)?

Well, are you on the SSG list or not? You say you went to NCO of the month. If you arent on the promotion list (check your ERB), it doesnt matter if you made the points or not.
35F[S]3 points4 points5 points4 years ago(3 children)
Yes I have the required points to be promoted. I am on the by name list that is put out every month by HRC. My concern is this my CSM says that reguardless of points that I have to go the board. Is that correct or incorrect?
11C/00R/79S2 points3 points4 points4 years ago(2 children)
Have you by any chance read AR 600-8-19? Yes you have to go before a Promotion Board. There are two by-name lists – one for who is eligible and one for who is on the promotion standing lists.

I have, any as far as Im aware Im good to go. I didnt state, and this is my bad, that Im CLI right now and my MOS is accepting CLI for both SGT and SSG.

Yep, complete information helps a lot when you ask questions. We shouldnt have to drag it out of you.

If you are on the by name list then congrats SSG – there isnt much your chain on command can do. obviously they can dick you around and not pin you – but youll still be an E6. Until you are up for E7 there is only one list put out every month.
[deleted]2 points3 points4 points4 years ago(3 children)
Please dont take this the wrong way, but how are you an E5 and not know how this works?
35F[S]3 points4 points5 points4 years ago(0 children)
because no one has really been able to explain it to me or anyone else that has asked. I know that if you have points that you get promoted but a lot of people dont know how the CLI works. All they know is that their name gets put out on a list and your CDR/1SG/PSGs get together and discuss if your promtable or not. but the fuzzy area is when you do make points and they circle yes do you still have to go to the promotion board if you are a CLI MOS that all you have to have is the minimum points to get promoted or are they good to go get stuff sewn on their uniforms and such for the 1st of the next month. But my main question is can my CSM force me to go the board to make me get promoted

Welcome to 35F, where E5 and E6 are pretty much automatic and have been for years.

How many points do you have?What are the points for 35F now?Have you attended the Promo board in the past?Do you qualify for ALI? (Automatic promotion)
35F[S]1 point2 points3 points4 years ago(0 children)
Yes for ALI, 14 points and I have gone to the NCOs of the month board but not promotion board. I saw my points on my erb after my appearance there

Firstly, if you have been integrated into the ALI then you have 39 points. Second, if the points are bare minimum then you should get picked up on the list.
But if your CoC so choses they can remove you from ALI; However, its a painful process ( they shouldnt have let you be integrated in the first place if they dont want you promoted).With that said, if your CSM gets you boarded before the 1st, then your ALI points dont matter amd your points worksheet will have to be completed.
If you BOLO the board, you can be barred; if you decline the board, you can be barred; if you pass the board, all will be well.
Additionally, I dont think there is anything you can do to get out of the board if they tell you to go.
[deleted]2 points3 points4 points4 years ago(1 child)
They would have 14 points for SSG. And its CLI now.. Just FYI
