RFI: NCOER Form Numbers in the 1970s

A: According to a Tech Memo from EREC at Ft Ben Harrison (Now HRC) in Mar 1976 the chronological listing of NCO Eval forms, they always were a 2166 number designation, but with some added dashes. A historical study of the NCO Eval report talk about some 1948 trial or test forms in the post-WWII era, it wasn’t until the 1958 creation of the “supergrades,” E-8 and E-9, that there were any formal NCO evaluations. It was mostly because of proficiency pay, and that evaluation process went away, and the evaluation report replaced it.
