Lt. Gen. Jody J. Daniels, chief of Army Reserve and commanding general, U.S. Army Reserve Command, has challenged the force to get after promoting its junior enlisted Soldiers to the rank of sergeant (E-5):
Leaders - I challenge you to get after this through timely enrolling and managing Soldiers to complete SSD1, flexible promotion boards, and temporary promotions for pin-on-eligible Soldiers. Schedule BLC rapidly for Soldiers recommended for promotions.
Specialists - verify your Promotion Points Worksheet in IPPS-A, and then get with your unit HR team to update.
Help get our deserving Soldiers promoted!
