Hi, Thought I would start this off. I know a lot of people will say things like walk suck the right **** ha However, in order to get through the ranks...this is what you could do differently... Join up as an RMP (why I hear you ask?) 3 year guaranteed full screw... retrade to PTI core. 1 more year sergeant... then i get stuck... i cant think of a quick promotion trip from here up the ranks any further? Can you...? *Edit* This is a hypothetical joke, not to be taken seriously!
