Let the waiting begin...Verified, Signed, and Sealed.

So... I took my photo, reviewed and updated my records, and verifed their accuracy to seal my Board File.

If the Army is dumb enough to mess up and promote me again, I will be on my way to El Paso this time next year for the SGM/CSM Academy.

results for this board will be released around the last week of July.

In my MOS there are only 87 folks. Last year their were 36 eligible for the board and 5 were selected. I knew 3 of the 5. Those guys are studs. All of the CSMs that had review my records say that I should stand out as a qualified section...

We will see.

    Good luck Shane :beer:
    Never had the pleasure of meeting you face to face (YET) but from what I know of you, you strike me as a squared away individual and I have no doubt you'll continue to serve our country well with another promotion :usa:

    Best of luck, centermass! Promotion boards are funny things: you try to go in with no expectations, but can never help thinking, "what if?" I hope your "what if" comes back fulfilled.

    Thanks y'all. Six- gun you're right. I've learned you can never expect anything from a board... Especially army boards. Sometimes you can be the top 5% and if you don't have that one thing they are looking for....
    I figure I'll do the same I've done my whole career. Train my soldiers to shoot, move, and communicate the best I can, teach them to do the same for their soldiers, and the rest will fall into place. Maybe not this year, but it will.
    I'm just excited with the thought of getting back closer to the line. As a SGM/CSM, sure I will be in the upper echelon but it is a far better sight than the assignments I am facing now.
