I currently hold the MOS 11B, I am also currently hold a (P) status under CLI. I was suppose to go to the board last month in November but unfortunately I did not attend. Today I ask my PSG and PL if I can go to the Promotion board as of January since I just missed the December board today.
Let me explain how it went down. As I shut the door as they wanted to speak to me privately. They weren't in agreement my PL wants me to attend a Promotion Board as he said but my PSG disagree.
"you are reclassing and I think If you get promoted it may hinder you for 20 skill level for that new MOS which is 35S. but don't misunderstand that you are stellar soldier no doubt about it and you do deserve to be promoted as an Infantryman."
I did plead that they're many NCOs from Staff Sergeant to Sergeant. Reclassing all the time. There is no intermediate vs basic class for Reclass its just 10 level basic course.
What can I do to build my case to convince my PSG about the promotion board. That kind leave me stagnate. I already been hold the the roll of Squad Leader for the last 7 months as a SPC. I currently hold 268 Pt score, expert qualification and I take my job pretty serious. How do not deserve the opportunity to go to the board? Is he right for doing so? Should I held back because I choose to further my career in another MOS.
What are my options.
