It's important that the four "Ps" are included in the narrative:
A rater may leave one or more of these four components out, but they risk sending an unintended negative message to a board member.
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"
