Does anyone know the max age to make SGM
That was my rank when I retired. I never heard that topic mentioned before.

I suppose that the requirement (and be eligible) to serve a certain number of years is a factor for promotion to various ranks.

My thoughts: If one is still eligible to serve in their branch of service (i.e., retention control point or RCP), they would be eligible for selection if they met other requirements.

From 2015: “Soldiers of the Regular Army and the Army Reserve component of the Active Guard and Reserve may stay on active duty up to their RCP, or age 62, whichever comes first.”

“The age limit for soldiers assigned to the Title 10 programs of the National Guard component of the Active Guard and Reserve is 60 years.”
