Reasons For Not Getting Promoted?
Ok, this is for all you former/current Military, especially the upper NCO and CO positions.
Im currently in the Michigan Army National Guard, been in for a little over 3 years, transfered from an HHC unit to a Line Unit as an Infantrymen a little under a year ago. Failed 2 PT tests with the HHC unit [run portion by less than 10 seconds think it was due to the oddly shaped track on civilian roads] and Passed my last one with more than 3 minutes to spare [on a normal Army regulated track]
Question is, why have I not been promoted. Been an E-2 since Ive basically enlisted. Ive got no other flags on my profile, especially since Ive passed my last PT test as of last August. Ive passed it through my team leader, and he has passed it through my Squad leader. Not sure if its an S-1 Issue, or what.
Was wondering if theres some weird AR that Im not aware of.
Its kind of demoralizing that Ive not moved up in rank, but other people newer than I have been promoted rather quickly, its needless to say, very embarrassing. Squad leader as well as team leader are always praising me for being so squared away, and doing things better than most, but I feel my rank should reflect it...
Anyways, any help or comments would be appreciated.
