It is said that those from the Academy get preference but I think that is only for General Officer.



    Unless we get step promoted.

    I believe that in the AIR FORCE we gave the exhaulted rank of E2 if a trooper made it through basic. E 3 if a trooper was part way through a long tech school or survived a short one without an Article 15. That's what ?CAPTAIN'S MAST for you NAVY Types ?

    I degress as usual..sorry !!!

    Step promoted? I have heard the term, but drawing a blank.

    Thanks. I think we sorta has something like that, where skipper of each command could choose one person for promotion each cycle or year. I got out 17 years ago, so I am finding my memory on details back then not what it should be.

    first one I got was because I was a fast burner but didnt make the 5 (journemany) requirments before deployment..... The 2nd I got was when I was in the gulf and could not make it back to get the 7 "craftsman" rating required for promotion, though I was teaching everyone how to use thier equipment while remaining over seas.

    If I am remembering this right, the one guy I remember getting this was a gay guy. This was pre-DADT, we all, including the skipper knew he was gay, but he was the skippers right hand yeoman. The jokes almost wrote themselves.

    Rewd keeps getting stripes and she will soon be a "zebra" .. That is what the E8 E9's were knicknamed in the AirForce. Oh well AirForce had one stripe per E RANK from E2 - E9 so zebra sounded right - ok you had to be there. Now Navy enlisted you guys have stripes and that archor symbol if I recall so there is not a one to one stripe.


    Oh well it's late and I am on duty station to cause havoc in the insurance industry tomorrow !!
