    Have you been before the promotion board, yet? Do you know what the trends for promotion to Sergeant are in your MOS? Have you worked on maxing out your points under military and civilian education yet? The answers to these questions will help you decide whether it makes more sense to change MOSes or continue as a 91J.

    Good luck!

    Hi BoricuaRod, this is BoricuaChief lol. The bottom line is if you like your job and want to learn more of it. If you do not; then its not about promotion.

    I just met a soldier recently that as an E5, the points in her MOS was 798. She strived and worked hard and attained 800 points. She went back to the promotion board (didnt know you can do that if you are already promotable) and got a perfect score. Yes, she could of risked getting less points but it was a risk with lots of positives.

    Buena Suerte.

    Not necessary - leave the moderating to the moderators.

    That being said, OP, your typing\grammar could use some work - it's a bit difficult to tell what you're saying.

    I think we went through this when you first signed on to this site, Boricua, but to be a leader your English definitely must improve. Maybe you can get by with it in the shop but if you decided to go Infantry your orders must be clear & concise under the worst noise & fear conditions imaginable. Lives are at stake there. Please don't regard this as a slur to you. I certainly don't intend that. I'm trying to help you out to be a good NCO. I'm sure you can understand the language good enough to follow orders but as a SGT you'll have to be issuing them.

    Good luck! Infantry is usually a good MOS for promotion & holding two or more MOSs never hurt a Soldier's carreer.
