3. Policy: Close attention must be given to specific eligibility criteria and other requirements
contained in this message.

a. This announcement contains instructions regarding selection to attend the United States Army
Sergeants Major Course (USASMC) for the purpose of promotion to SGM in the Regular Army
(RA) and Unites States Army Reserve AGR (USAR AGR) program. IAW reference C, a HQDA
selection board will convene at the DA Secretariat (DAS), Fort Knox, KY on 14 Aug 17. This board
will consider eligible Soldiers and select the best qualified 1SG/MSG to attend the USASMC for the
purpose of promotion to SGM. Selected Soldiers will be scheduled to attend the resident course,
class 69 (Aug 18). Soldiers who are previous graduates of the USASMC, if otherwise selected as
best-qualified by this board, will be grand-fathered and awarded promotion sequence numbers
consistent with the guidance established in this message (para 4a). Additionally, this board will
consider Soldiers for possible Department of the Army denial of continued service and subsequent
separation under the Qualitative Management Program (QMP) reference K and L and Standby
Advisory Board (STAB) as needed.

b. Soldiers seeking consideration and selection for ultimate promotion to SGM should be aware
that following graduation of the USASMC, the Army will assign and utilize NCOs consistent with
how they have been groomed and developed over the course of their career. Individual knowledge,
skills, and attributes will be synchronized with a unit requirement. This calls for selfless service;
placing Army needs and requirements above your own - an important aspect of serving at the
highest enlisted ranks. Additionally, considering the number of requirements, selection as a SGM
includes a high probability of later selection to serve as a Command Sergeant Major (CSM). In that
regard, NCOs who are not willing to serve as the Army requires of them, or who are not placing the
Army mission above their own personal goals and desires, should decline consideration for selection
(para 4d).

c. This board is designed to ensure all eligible Soldiers have sufficient remaining service to complete
the 36-month promotion service obligation prior to achieving a maximum of 30 years AFS or age 60
(whichever comes first) as established in reference K. Consequently, only those NCOs with 24 years
or less AFS and who are age 54 or younger (as of the board convene date) will be otherwise eligible
for selection consideration to attend the USASMC for the purpose of promotion to SGM.

d. Soldiers selected for training should expect to attend the resident USASMC. Use of the non-
resident training path will be limited, supporting readiness and/or compassionate instances only.

4. Selection to attend the USASMC for the purpose of promotion to SGM.
a. Eligibility criteria for consideration is as follows:
