New Army rules set the stage for NCO promotions surge
from Army Times
Noncommissioned officers across the Army can expect a surge in promotions over the next few years as the Army’s new NCO professional development system falls into place. One key indicator is the 2016 sergeant major select and train board results. Released Dec. 6, the list is the largest in history, with 967 senior NCOs selected to attend the Sergeants Major Course. That’s a 28.4 percent selection rate. Last year’s list had about 577 names on it and a 13.6 percent selection rate. Officials also are projecting increases in pin-on promotions as high as 42 percent and 25 percent for certain ranks in the coming years.
