Air Force promotes 566 to chief

The Air Force recently selected 566 senior master sergeants for promotion to the service’s highest enlisted rank as part of the 2004 chief master sergeant evaluation board.

Fourteen senior master sergeants were from Ramstein.
“Promotion to chief remains extremely competitive,” said Chief Master Sgt. Dale Kenney, enlisted promotions and military testing branch chief at Randolph Air Force Base. “Those selected for promotion have clearly demonstrated the potential to serve as chief master sergeants in today’s Air Force.”

The board, which considered 2,688 senior master sergeants, selected 21.06 percent. Last year’s selection rate was 19.86 percent.

The average score for those selected was 662.55, with an average time in grade and time in service of 3.41 and 22.49 years respectively
