Default My son just passed the NCO promotion board!!!

What a great morning. Woke up and it’s our 22 second anniversary and then got a call from my son saying he passed the NCO promotion board. He now has to wait for a BLC slot aka leadership school, they called it PLDC when I was in.

I got pinned at exactly 3.5 years, he has 7 months to top that. I wish him the best.

Congratulations to all of you!



But tell him in the future not to delay it until it's your anniversary.

Right on, the promo board can be stressful, glad he made it. I lucked out and did mine in Iraq, no worries about uniform there.

nope not anymore. The fun police have ruined a tradition for everyone. Many new SGT's do not even get the NCO ceremony that is in the regs.
