Myself and a SSG attended the SAMC boards while in Iraq. CSM Andrews was on my board (Division CSM for 3rd ID). I was inducted via the boards recommendation and received the 3rd ID Audie Murphy club coin from CSM Andrews.
The question is what is next. We are both part of 4/25th BCT out of Alaska. There is a SAMC there, but do we get back there and put in for the coin for the class A's? Do we request anything? Do we owe anything?
Basically, no one has said anything yet in regards to what comes next, and I'm wondering if anyone has any input who may have received their induction while in combat.
FYI - I am an E-5 with less than 3 years time in service. It's possible for those who want it, it just takes work. But it pays off in the end. So don't get disheartened if you want to go to this board or do anything because you do not have experience. Go out and get the information, and prove that it can be done.
