Army Directive 2017-28 (Sergeant and Staff Sergeant Promotion Recommended List)
...Issued: [07-DEC-2017]...
SUBJECT: Army Directive 2017-28 (Sergeant and Staff Sergeant Promotion Recommended List)

b. Army Regulation (AR) 140-111 (U.S. Army Reserve Reenlistment Program),

2. This directive revises Army policy for Title 10 enlisted Soldiers in the Regular Army
(RA) and U.S. Army Reserve (USAR) as specified in paragraph 3, effective the May
2018 promotion month. Because our Army is a Soldier-centric force, we must rely on a
professional noncommissioned officer (NCO) Corps to sustain our stature as the world's
premier combat force. Leader development is a time-intensive process, but the end
product of that investment is an NCO Corps of competence and character fit to lead in
combat. It is essential that unit leaders-across all levels-understand their individual
role in ensuring that we develop and train our Soldiers and NCOs to assume increasing
levels of responsibility. To this end, we must remain committed to retaining the talented
men and women we have accessed and trained because they are our future.

3. It is imperative that the Army maintain a quality force by keeping Soldiers who are
competent, educated, motivated, and trained to work as members of a team. All
leaders are responsible for training and developing our Soldiers for increased levels of
responsibility by the time a Soldier attains promotion eligibility in the primary zone. My
expectation is that the vast majority of Soldiers will be integrated into the promotion
recommended list upon attainment of such eligibility. By affording quality Soldiers
promotion opportunities and, conversely, denying continued service to those who clearly
do not show they have the potential for such service, we strengthen our Army and NCO
Corps. The following policies align an "up-or-out" system by linking continued
advancement with retention control points. To improve readiness, morale, retention,
and the professional development of our talented Soldiers consistent with sustaining an
All-Volunteer Army, I direct the following policy changes concerning promotion to
sergeant (SGT) and staff sergeant (SSG):

a. Promotion eligibility criteria for recommendation and promotion (RA and USAR)
are in the enclosure, which supersedes AR 600-8-19, tables 3-1 through 3-4.

b. Rules for integration in the promotion recommended list (AR 600-8-19, table 3-1)
are applicable to RA and USAR Active Guard Reserve (AGR) only.
