Congratulations to, Derrald L. Lemons, on his promotion to the rank of Sergeant First Class (SFC)! A very rewarding milestone to an outstanding NCO and senior facilitator. SFC Lemons and his family (pictured below) been apart of the 199th NCOA for over 8 years! #TrainToLead

Here is what a SFC duties consist of:

SERGEANT FIRST CLASS: The position title of Platoon Sergeant is considered key in the command structure of the Army. Platoon Sergeants generally have several Staff Sergeants working under their leadership.

The Platoon Sergeant is the key assistant and advisor to the Platoon Leader. In the absence of the Platoon Leader, the Platoon Sergeant commands the Platoon.

The Sergeant First Class may serve in a position subordinate to the Platoon Sergeant or may serve as the NCOIC of a section with all the attendants responsibilities and duties of the Platoon Sergeant.

Whether Platoon Sergeant or Sergeant First Class, this is the first level at which the term senior NCO property applies. The Platoon Sergeant or Sergeant First Class generally has 15 to 18 years or more of military experience and is rightfully expected to bring that experience to bear in quick, accurate decisions that are in the best interest of the mission and the Soldier.

The Platoon Sergeant is expected to embody all the traits of a leader.

Congratulations to Basic Leaders Course class 004-20!  #TrainToLead
