Hey all, quick question:

I was just selected to attend WOCS in the September Warrant Officer Selection Board. Upon checking my email today, I just got ATRRS hard-slotted for ALC with a report date of a little over a month from now. My question is, should I look at this as an opportunity to gain some more NCO leadership knowledge and experience that I could utilize as a WO or should I attempt to put in a DA 4187 to have my slot canceled in order to afford another Soldier trying to progress his/her career as an NCO the chance to attend?

It's admirable that you would consider others ahead of yourself. However, the more you know, the more effective you can be, so by all means, take advantage of the training. Leadership training is not only useful in the military, but also in any civilian career you happen to have after the military.

Yeah I was just considering the fact it can be pretty tough to get an ALC slot in my MOS but I suppose it's better I don't count my chickens before they hatch.

Congrats on the selection, I was selected as well. Personally I would attend ALC, there’s always a possibility WOCS or Flight school might not work out. You don’t want to be behind if that happens. On the plus side you’ll learn from ALC even if you don’t need it in the end. Again congrats and good luck!
