Ok, here is my question. I am a SGT, and so is my boss. (No problem, I really like him). I am in a 30 slot, and he is in a 40 slot. I am senior to him in TIG, and that is fine too, becuse I reclassed to my current MOS and he has spent his whole career in it, so I don't mind. He is teaching me a lot. Anyways, He should pick up E-6 before me, because I need another 7 months TIS to even be eligible for the secondary zone. I know he can't rate me now, but when it comes time for my NCOER, he should be a SSG. My question is, can he still do my quarterly counselings? We are trying to do this the right way.
