Senior master sgt. promotion announcement delayed

The Air Force has delayed by two weeks the announcement of senior master sergeant promotion selections.

The selections were originally to have been announced March 6, but will now be announced March 20. The Air Force Personnel Center said in a March 4 release that it is delaying the announcements so it can adjust to next year’s tight budget requirements.

“Air Staff distributes promotion quotas based on fiscal and statutory constraints, and projected grade vacancies,” AFPC operations division chief Col. Joe Atkins said. “We are working carefully to make final adjustments associated with fiscal year 2015 to ensure we have the correct promotions to meet projected Air Force senior noncommissioned officer requirements.”

AFPC said the announcement change will not delay pin-on dates. The first airmen selected for promotion will officially become senior master sergeants in April.

Air Force Times will post the list of selectees the morning of March 20.
