Results of the Regular Army and Active Guard and Reserve (Army Reserve) sergeants first class promotion boards that met in February will be released April 10.
In addition to considering more than 30,000 staff sergeants for promotion, these boards also screened several thousand staff sergeants for possible involuntary separation or early retirement under the Qualitative Service Program, a drawdown tool for culling the ranks of over-strength military occupational specialties.
The basic zone of eligibility for promotion consideration included staff sergeants with dates of rank of Feb. 5, 2011, and earlier. Eligibility rules for the AGR board also required staff sergeants to have promotion eligibility basic dates of Feb. 5, 2008, and earlier, basic active-duty service dates of Feb. 5, 1995, or later, and birth dates no earlier than Feb. 5, 1956.
Under rules implemented in January, these soldiers also had to have credit for completion of Structured Self-Development III, and the Advanced Leaders Course.
The zone of eligibility for the QSP screening included staff sergeants with dates of rank of Feb. 3, 2010, and earlier, in over-strength military occupational specialties.
Promotions off the new lists can begin as soon as scheduled by the Army. April 1 promotions will reduce the 2013 E-7 list to only 136 names.
