Letter to President of the Board

Hi all,

Just had a quick question, I am preparing my packet for my E5 board and had one thing to ask. From what i see on the discussions i have found you are only needed to write a letter to the president of the board if you are missing something. MY first sgt wants us to write one just to show we took the time and effort into putting our packets together. In this instance its not for me missing anything in my packet.... so what would the criteria for this letter consist of? And would it be in memorandum form?

Thank you so much!!!!

I've never heard of writing a letter. Maybe just write up a simple BIO on yourself? If that isn't already included, that is.

I have not heard of a letter to the president of the board being written for a SGT board. I don't see how that is necessary when the Soldier appears before the board president in person. They can get a quick bio straight from your mouth. Also, the board is formatted for question and answer... they question and you answer. You earn points based on your performance and those points are added to your overall promotion packet. A letter to the president of the board seems pointless.

Senior enlisted boards have this option since boards review strictly the Soldier's board file and DA photo; there is not face-to-face. So, if you are missing documents in your board file you can address those items in a concise memo.

Actually these days it is a go/no-go event, no points are earned (dated info).

Sains,

What MOS field are you in?


Most complex problems have very simple solutions.
