Officer selection boards review only officer records and any communications from candidates directly to the board. The board is also given a roster of eligible candidates listed in alphabetical order. Above and in-zone officer rosters are combined, so that the status of the candidates is not discernible. Only the officer portion of a record is viewable by the board.

Promotion statistics for this board are provided below. There are many
variables, e.g., changes in performance, group size, approved voluntary
separations, etc., that will cause selection rates to fluctuate from
year to year among groups. Documented, sustained, high performance is
the best way to remain competitive for promotion. Approved voluntary separation requests appearing before this board: 0
