I'm a SGT/E-5 in the Army and I've been in for 12 years,

I'm a SGT/E-5 in the Army and I've been in for 12 years, last 6 in the National Guard. I've been a good Soldier but made a mistake in February and submitted a fake doctors note when I was sick for drill. They didn't make everyone else submit a note when they are sick but I freaked out when they asked for one 4 days later. I told my chain of command right away and admitted to this and just a few days ago, i got a memo from the commander saying I should be reduced in rank one grade for inefficiency. I have no pattern of misconduct and am a squad leader. I also do extra admin duties in the unit. From my understanding, for inefficiency there has to be a pattern of misconduct. Are they out of bounds here? From reading AR 600-8-19 they are. The reduction board is supposed to take place November 6th. Also can the batallion force the company commander to initiate reduction actions? Thank you.
