POSITIONS THE RATED NCO COULD BEST SERVE THE ARMY

The rater lists up to three (at least two) different future duty positions in which the rated NCO could best serve the Army at the current or next higher grade. Therefore, do not recommend a SSG serve as a 1SG or a SGT serve in a position normally identified for junior personnel. Also, a SSG who receives a marginal rating based on poor leadership skills should not berecommended to serve in a higher leadership position; however, the same SSG may have outstanding technical skills and might be recommended for a higher position in the technical arena.
