I'm currently reclassing at Fort Huachuca and when I improcessed, the battalion CSM came to all prior service members and said a few things including "if you want to attend my promotion board, just submit a packet the month prior". So we all said ok great. So I go to my platoon sergeant and say hey I want to go to the promo board in April. He says " oh no you're going to have to do something extrodinary". I said, the CSM said we could go, just submit a promo packet and he says no I'm not sending you. All I do is PT in the morning and go to the school house in the afternoon. The thing I can see being extrodinary in this case is saving someone'e life.
I don't like people taking charge of my career, it really pisses me off. How should I handle this situation? Does the SFC trump the CSM in this case?
