Two questions:

  1. Can you be either awarded or authorized the Drill Sergeant Skill Identification Badge through completing similar training in another branch of the service? (In this case Air Force Training Instructor Course). In other words, is there a course in another branch of service that will give you constructive credit or equivalency authorizing you to wear the Drill Sergeant Identification Badge?

  2. If so please describe the process to obtain authorization to wear this badge.

My understanding HRC Recruiting command is under the same umbrella as Green to gold, WOC school, Big Army Recruiting and etc. Can a DA Selected Solider for Recruiting request/ Volunteer/laterally moved to go to DSS?

The solider has not attended USAREC School in Fort Jackson but is sechdule to attend in June.

My husband is in a unit here at Fort Stewart. There is an E6 who was slotted for DSS and got a DUI this weekend. He was informed today that he would filling the slot for this idiot since he is an E6 and there are no other "qualified" candidates from the battery. I was not planning on moving seeing as we have only been here a year. Is this even possible? I thought ATTRS was a by name slot?

Thank you for reading,

Mrs. Harris

I am seeking information and/or guidance on how the process works for a TPU (Reservist) soldier who has already obtained a DA 4187 (letter of release) from their command, is in his window for re-enlistment, and would like to seek a position as an active duty soldier as Drill Sergeant. This soldier, I am referencing, is currently MOS-Q as a 68W10 with an E5 packet that has been submitted for review, has experience as a prior active duty soldier, and two deployments (Iraq and Afghanistan). He is currently 26 y/o without any physical restraints or red flags. Please let me know if you have any information for me to pass on to this soldier. Thank you, and have a great day.

Is it possible for someone with a P2 profile to get an assignment as a Drill Sergeant? I have to have a Special Duty in order to start preparing for myself for when my 1st look comes in the future and of course Drill Sergeant would be one of those. I have not located if my P2 would stop that though.

SFC Cochran,

Please disregard what 1SG Miller said. If you go to AR 614-200 you will find the answer to your question.

As my husband is preparing for Drill School I as his wife am trying to plan our PCS move. I was wondering when does a DSC usually find out his post assignment and generally receive his orders? It is my understanding that there are only 4 options for post assignment as a drill sergeant, however there are I am finding conflicts with that information and would just like to ensure I am aware of the correct information. Thank you in advance for your reply.

Kind Regards,

CSM McCoy,

I know that you are an extremely busy leader but I will like to get some clarifications on the SMA concerns regarding the shortages in Female Drill SGTs in the Army. As I always wanted to participate in this elite program I was never DA selected for it, however I was DA selected and proudly served as an AIT Platoon SGT with the Ordnance Center and Schools at Fort Lee Virginia. My question will be, is there it is any way possible that I can apply for this program even though I am a SFC at this moment? Please advice!

How does this school help candidates that can still do the job, but have some physical limitations, successfully negeotiate this course ?

I was trying to see how long the course is. It would be helpful to know how long I was going to be away from home station so that I can pay bills in advance.

Where can I find the bios and info on the 1SGs. I was told these NCOs are our Chief Instructors during School. How do I know what company I will be assigned to?

The new Commandant, CSM McCoy, I read through his biography and what caught my eye is the Multi-National Force and Observers deployment to Sinai Egypt. I share that great experience and was there from January 2005 to January 2006 at South Camp, the first rotation to be a 12 month deployment. I am certain CSM will recall Herb, and Herbs Beach. I look forward to being a DSC under his command, I am very proud and will be reporting in a week and a half. A warm welcome to CSM McCoy.
