Bio question regarding demotion
 Login/Join
 

posted
I'm supposed to be going to the board here in the next month or so, I went through a couple years ago and got promoted, but got demoted last year due to a lapse of judgment on my part. I'm fairly certain I should include that in my bio because its not like it was a secret or anything. My question is how would I write that in there?

Personally, I would not because it is irrelevant. Bio just refers to your duty stations and assignments.

Unless you think you can use it as a positive; I will refrain from mentioning it. Just focus on the present and future.

Yeah, gotta agree with the Wise Chief here. I was in the same boat as you, and when I went back to the board, I gave the bio just like you would if it were your first time. The 1sg's and CSM then asked about the the situation, and actualy joked a little about it, during the course of the board appearance. If you are back in the board, they understand it's for a good reason. Bringing up the past is irrelevant. If they want to know about it, they'll ask.

Even, if you dont include it on your written bio be prepared to answer questions in front of the board.

Thing about your bio, is it is truly your opportunity to talk about what a badass you are...why shoot yourself in the foot before you even start out of the gates?
