It is ultimately your career and nobody is going to take care of you as well as yourself. If you don't make the time to sit down with your S1 and ensure they do the work then your records probably won't be updated. If you are so busy-you can always submit all of your documentation to them through your training room and ensure that you use a DD Form 200 (Transmittal Record). Make sure your training room gets one as well and that it is filled out properly with the name, rank, signature, and date received up in the S1 shop. Give it about one week and have the training room check the status. If after the 2nd week your records are not updated, get your NCO support channel involved...that's what it is there for. Too many NCOs try to jump around their NCO support channel and then are pissed off when they don't get what they want. Every section, shop, platoon, company has an SOP-use it.
Thanks for the info.
My orderly clerk was just sent to the S1, well on Monday he is, and he's hooking me, and three others with an appointment to fix our stuff.
I'll keep that in mind (the DD Form 200) for the future though, thanks.
