AF selects 3,841 for master sergeant

JOINT BASE SAN ANTONIO-RANDOLPH, Texas — More than 3,800 technical sergeants have been selected for promotion to master sergeant, Air Force officials said May 21.

The 3,841 selected represent 18.71 percent of the 20,528 eligible.

Following official commander notification, the list of selectees will be released May 23, 8 a.m. CDT.

The average score for those selected was 350.21. Selectees’ average time in grade is 4.38 years and time in service is 15.27. The average enlisted performance report score is 133.85, and 11.02 is the average decorations score. Selectee average promotion fitness examination score is 82.76 and the average specialty knowledge test score is 68.43.

Those selected for master sergeant will be promoted according to their promotion sequence number beginning in August. Selections are tentative until the data verification process is complete, which is no later than 10 days after the promotion release date. Personnel officials will notify Airmen, via military personnel sections, if their selection is in question.

To see the promotion list Thursday, go to the myPers website at https://mypers.af.mil, select “Search All Components” from the drop down menu and enter “enlisted promotions” in the search window. Airmen will also be able to access their score notices on the virtual MPF, accessible via the secure applications page and the Air Force Portal.
