I am new to this site for the sole purpose of finding some non biased help. I am only going to post facts, not how I "feel" about things in hopes of finding the answers I need.
I was promoted to SGT 01Sept2011. In October I was injured and unable to run. I was on back to back temporary profiles until 22May2012 when I had surgery on the injury. I am currently on a temporary recovery profile from the surgery until 06Sept2012.
I was informed today by a senior NCO in my unit that if I do not have a certificate of graduation in my hand NLT 01Oct2012 I will be administratively reduced in rank.
I have read the Army Regulation and as far as I understand it, I can only be reduced if I fail to complete a school mandatory for my grade. And WLC is only mandatory for an E-5 who is trying to go to an E-6 promotion board, or for an E-6 within 270 days of date of rank.
I was told to look up a current MILPER Message concerning this matter, but haven't had any luck finding one that seems current.
If anyone can show me a link to the MILPER Message, or anything that will help I would greatly appreciate it. And just for the record, no I am not trying to dodge WLC. I have no problem going, but due to the surgery and screws now in place, I cannot physically run until it is healed.
