Should the current system for promotion of ATs be maintained or should there be an additional technical board? This isn't a dig at anyone selected for promotion or a complaint against the system, however I do think the current method of selection does have its flaws. The boards that sit can only judge the individual by his/her CR but do those CRs contain enough detail. Fine, they maybe excellent soldiers, but are they excellent or even capable technicians? What's more important Good Soldier or Good Technician? Or should there be a happy medium? If there was a technical board, or element of in CRs, then perhaps even more suitable candidates would be selected for promotion. After all we are technicians.
