Hi all, I'm a long time lurker here and have just been thinking about promotion so thought I'd finally register and get some advice. How do you know if you made the promotion board and where you came? To give you some background, I am a Private and last year was posted to a new unit, I received an early CR which was absolutely gleaming I have now done 6 years and for the first few years got "promote him, but not yet". The last couple have been "ready now". The thing is, I know that people junior to me and with inferior reports (in my old unit) have now been promoted. Is there any possibility that my CR didn't reach whereever it was meant to go? The grapevine tells me that you should know if you made the board. Is that right? Thanks in advance for any info/advice you may have for me.
