It's important that the four "Ps" are included in the narrative:

  • peer comparison that includes an enumeration
  • promotion potential
  • potential for schooling
  • potential for duty positions

A rater may leave one or more of these four components out, but they risk sending an unintended negative message to a board member.


Examples:

Enumeration "the best Sergeant First Class I senior rate", "one of the top two Staff Sergeants I have worked with in 18 years", or "one of the two best Soldiers of the 20 I senior rate"

Promotion "promote NOW", "must promote below the zone"

Schooling "send to First Sergeants Course"

Command or Duty Position "will be a distinguished Command Sergeant Major"
