Promotions in the field

''SEAL lieutenants have been team leaders, but in the global war on terrorism, they have had to go above and beyond their normal responsibilities to work with senior U.S. and coalition officers''

Plus it helps for these excellent soldiers (?? sailors??) to have their opinions heard when speaking to senior officers who don't take kindly by being advised by lowly LT's no matter what their background is.

Good luck to them
