Several SNCOs in my BN have been trying to get a clear regulation driven answer to this question. I've looked into 600-25 and haven't read anything clearly stating this true or false. Does anyone know the answer and where to find it?

Yes it does count, at least for the infantry. The Infantry (CMF 11) Career Progression Plan
Specifically states this: “Many MOS 11Bs SSGs will serve and receive evaluations in positions requiring NCOs of higher ranks. Successful performance in these assignments is an indicator of their ability verses the potential to serve at the higher rank. Their performance in these positions should also be recognized by promotion and selection boards at all levels.” This information is available on the Office of the Chief of the Infantry (OCOI) website. Hope that helps.

I've heard yes and no, but also never a reg to back it up. At a minimum it looks good at your next centralized promo board. If you are that hell bent on the truth I'd email branch manager, they should know the actual reg.

It’s possible I am incorrect here but I was sure the reg specifically details how to rate this. As I recall, if you are a SSG(P) working in an E7 position you are rated against the other E7s in that chain. If you are an E6 you would be rated against other E6s but noting that you are working a rank above your current grade etc. The leadership ability of the soldier is then rated in the appropriate block.

Perhaps I’m misunderstanding the question.
