So now there is one LESS step involved with promotion to E-5 SSgt, and now you have 12 years to do it?
No wonder they're bragging about 70% FMC rates!?! Maybe someone should be concentrating on the enlisted force training and retention. Seems more important than new uniforms every administration, or 'fit-to-fight' scores?
"Yeah SrA Snuffy looks sharp in his new ABUs with the suade boots, and he scored 92 on his fit test; but after taking 8 years to get his 5 level, I hope he makes SSgt this enlistment..."
Is there even such a thing as a "4 year wonder" anymore? Which, back then, was SSgt in the first 4 year enlistment. One could enter as a A1C, then make Sra "Below the Zone", then test to SSgt on the first cycle? Then again back then some of us were 5-levels as E-3 after a week of FTD and 6 months of OJT!
