Can correspondence courses be entered into the Military Education block on the ERB?

Is it possible to list Correspondence courses that have ERB codes onto the Military Education block on the ERB. Not just the correspondence hour portion, but the military education block that actually lists the course name? The new SSD has codes also. Do they also go on the military education block even if it shows up on your ATTRS giving you points? If so, is there any documentation stating so? I prove it in regulations and MILPER messages to my S1, but they still wont accept it, saying it's "double tapping." What are the ERB codes used for if you cannot update them?.. Read the Answer»

Must Soldiers complete all phases of NCOES courses to earn points?

AR 600-8-19 promotions states you have to complete all phases of BNCOC (or ALC as its known now) in order to be awarded points. The new promotions rules do not make mention of this or do not state this specifically it just states Soldiers who graduate from the course get x amount of points. Now I'm fighting Soldiers who are telling me they know Soldiers who received points for this. Before I go and start auditing all my SGTs in the unit I want to make sure there nothing out there that states otherwise. All it takes is for the S1 to add your ALC on your ERB and you get the points even if the Soldier has not completed all phases. It seems like the only guardian of said points is a well informed S1...

Is DA Form 638 a valid source document for updating my ERB?

What documents (besides the DD 214) can be considered supporting documents? I am trying to update my ERB, but my HR NCO is insisting that a DA 638 (for an AAM) with the order #, and all of the signature blocks signed is not considered a supporting document, and that I have to have the actual certificate for the award to be added on my ERB. I know this is not true, but I'm having trouble finding proof that the signed 638 will suffice... Read the Answer»

Big Army wants to promote me, can my brigade say no?

I was picked up this month and my name is clearly showing on the by name list. My S1 is questioning my PPW because it was not updated until the 10th, never the less I was picked up. They are saying that Brigade can reject my packet, is this possible? How can Brigade say no when "Big Army" says yes? This is not a case of anything being "Jimmied." I have all required documents to support my point standing. Also, they are not considering 6 of my college credits because someone read my transcripts wrong, and 3 of my courses that I took to max out my military education did not post. One of the 3 is stating that it is not worth hours but it is listed as being worth 17 hours. I really feel is if the system is faulty! Who can I speak with, or would it even matter? I want to fight this to the fullest!.. Read the Answer»
