You should definitely be worried about this. Unless you have re-enlisted indef, I would try and get this taken care of.
Army Regulation 601-280, or AR 601-280, Army Retention Program, the new directive states that "Soldiers in the grade of staff sergeant and above not currently serving on an indefinite re-enlistment contract will be considered unqualified for re-enlistment if their Official Military Personnel File contains one of the following:
• Relief-for-Cause Noncommissioned Officer Evaluation Report, or NCOER
• a "No" listed in Part IV (Army Values, attributes, skills, actions) •
• a senior rater rating of 4 (fair) or 5 (poor) in Part V -- Overall Performance and Potential of an NCOER
• a Service School Academic Evaluation Report indicating a failure in an NCO Education System course
Also, 1SG, It is not required for the CSM to review it.
2–19. Review of noncommissioned officer evaluation reports
a. Every NCOER should should be reviewed by the 1SG, SGM, or CSM to ensure accountability of Soldiers’ evaluation
reports and to oversee the performance of junior NCOs.
I understand "should" and "recommend" when it comes to regulations that most Commands make it mandatory, but it is not.
I stand corrected. The old reg prior to 2012 required an SGM to review for quality. Either way, the point of the matter is that the "no" has to be justified and his NCO leadership at the senior levels should have caught this. Pretty sure there is more to the story.
