On browsing the board results i notice note 5 is subject to withdrawal of notice to terminate. Since when did this become the norm? 5 of them,i bet it does wonders for the morale of those who didn't come off and hadn't played the i'm leaving card.
What on earth are you on about? Note 5 does not appear against any of the individuals selected for promotion. Of course it appeasr at the bottom as a footnote in case any of those selected fall into that category, none of them do in this case!!!!!
Well, you never know, one or two of them might actually go through with leaving, if they have firm job offers. If it turns out that the others simply played the ticket to get a decent write up then shame on them. Nothing like a bit of integrity, and that is nothing like integrity!
Oh well another year or is it worth doing this crap for another year?????? You chose to do 'this crap' and were made aware of the likely career effect - live with it!
Yet again our board do justice to the workers! The board is fair system (I'm sorry to inform you) - Bottom line you didn't score enough points. Promotion goes on MERIT/EFFORT/OUTPUT not on how 'old and sweaty' you are. Live with it, deal with it, get on or get out!!
So it is disgraceful to pre-select a person who has signed off? What is your suggestion then, pre-select someone who hasn't performed as well during the preceeding 12 months? Maybe, if you worked hard instead of whinging about board results your name may appear there one day.
Believe it or not folks (and to those who are 'honking off' at their failure to pre-select this year), we do have quality JNCOs who have given notice yet remain focused and produced the goods and then some. Because an NCO has given notice to terminate DO NOT automatically assume they have taken their foot off the gas!
In today's modern Army, we are all about retention and if someone has given their notice and then pre-selects - well done (for remaining motivated etc). If this is the incentive to retain quality NCOs who we would be set to lose, so be it. Generally those who 'honk' about others are usually not the aforementioned quality and perhaps they should be loking for alternative employment.
Interesting thought.......... with the 12/24 years (initial) VEng career in place, I feel we may see less 'honking' as the 'Hard Done By/Passed Over' crew are shown the door at the 12 year point!
