    Navy promotions do not work that way. There is a test and points system every six months.

    Yes, I do know. I think it's that way for all branches of the military. I was trying to use an analogy to show my gratitude for the awesome work the SEALs did in capturing a most wanted terrorist.

    You do know, Redress served in the navy, honorably in the Gulf Right?


    I'd hate for you to look foolish here with over the top rhetoric.


    I disagree with her over her position on the seals here for the most part, but lets not use circus clown antics in this discussion.... K?

    Promotions do not go the way the other guy stated in any of the branches of American armed forces. There are promotion boards and a process to follow and guidlines of performance, testing, verification, and time in grade etc. This is not like the King of Camelot making knights.

    Unless they have changed it E4 thru E7 take a test for promotion...They not only have to pass the test but beat the quota....In other words you can pass the test and not get advanced.......E8 and E9 you go in front of a selection board and your record is the deciding factor........At least it is that way in the Navy........

    E4-E6 Navy, chief on up you go before a board. E1 you get for signing your name, E-2 and E-3 I believe are based on time served, and doing some stupid coursework.

    I hate to admit it, but there are some scumbags in Special Forces, just like in any other occupation.
    NO, absolutely NOT!
    The detainee fell down, if hurt worse, he fell down a flight of stairs.These things happen. This is American servicemen we are discussing, not perfect, but they do the job. And they must be cut some slack - this is a war zone...war is hell...

    Are you saying that E4 thru E6 go before a board?

    Yes very similar in the Air Force. There are quotas for E ranks as well as for offficers. In the AirForce the Senior Master Sgt E8 and Chief Master E9 go before a board. The enlisted need to get through NCO school to get above E5. Officers have proficiency ratings and yes your record is key. It is said that those from the Academy get preference but I think that is only for General Officer.

    NO, to get E7 and above it's a board, E4-E6, it's points, based on test, time in service, decorations, evals.

    Or at least it was.
