Do I have to reboard because my unit failed to update my APFT record?

I have a question, I have just found out that I lost my promotable status because my unit did not update my APFT records when I took a PT test for ALC. Do I have to be re-boarded or is there a way to fix it? Thanks in advance.

Greetings from Afghanistan!

If your unit failed to update your APFT score and provided there are no gaps between your old and new APFT, your S1 can reintegrate you to the Promotion Standing List without you having to reappear before a promotion board.

MILPER Message 11-233, Par 12c states:

C. IF A SOLDIER IS REMOVED FROM THE PROMOTION STANDING LIST BECAUSE THE UNIT FAILED TO UPDATE A PREVIOUS APFT THE SOLDIER WILL NOT BE REQUIRE TO BE RE-BOARDED.  UNITS MUST USE THE INTEGRATE FUNCTION IN THE PPW TO RETURN THEM TO A PROMOTABLE STATUS ONCE THE APFT SCORE/DATE IS CORRECTED.  FAILURE TO UPDATE TRAINING/PERSONNEL DATA DOES NOT CONSTITUTE A BASIS FOR AN ARC.  REMEMBER  THERE CANNOT BE A GAP BETWEEN APFT DATES.

      as long as there is no expiration date on your weapons card you are good but make sure you get current on weapons and take your weapons card to your s1 and update your ppw. weapons qual is good for 24 months
