Im a hard working soldier with good reports and am trusted and respected by the NCO's and privates alike. Unfortunately while on tour i was critically wounded and suffered a life threatening gunshot wound. Since then i have been downgraded to P7. i was due for an NCO cadre just before i was injured. My injuries may be with me for the rest of my life and im not likely to be 100% again and will probably never be able to do the cft and pft ever again. What career do i really have left. Ive been told i cant get promoted without the NCO cadre and no one seems to want to help. ive asked about alternatives but get the same stuff shoved down my throat about NCO cadre. Anyway does anyone know of any alternatives for promotion. i had considered some sort of storeman course considering i have taken over the stores as well. i had also considered a signals alternative but im reluctant to moving platoon. anyway all advice would be appreciated. at the minute im drowning here. its a kick in the balls to see sprogs getting promotion opportunities over me and no help even though im the most experienced private in the platoon and came second in the platoon standing despite including my physical problems.
