Preface: I'm looking for an educated discussion about the Sr. Rater Option from NCOs and Officers that understand NCOERs. If you don't...no need to comment.
So, to me the Sr. Rater Option doesn't make a whole lot of sense in this situation. what's your take?
I'm deployed. Due an annual in June. I re-deploy in June. I am deployed with my rater but my Sr. Rater (Co. CDR) and my reviewer (BN XO) are in garrison. My Co CDR. changes out in Apr. and is directing exercising the Sr. Rater Option. Essentially giving me a 10 month COR NCOER. I'd prefer the annual in June (obviously). What sense does this make and how does this "help" the rated NCO? Your thoughts...
Please do not regurgitate AR 623-3 Section 3-40 "Change of Rater" and Section 3-57 "Senior Rater Option". I've read it.
Pardon the brevity of this post.
