Just wondering how do you get promoted from E-3 to E-6 in 3 years? Rumors are shes sleeping with a csm and he's pushing everything through. just wondering if thats even possible. and how is something like that investigated?

Now it's not possible, well it won't be as of the new fiscal year. Although it is VERY possible.(Doesn't mean you have to be sleeping with someone....) Just have to be at the right place and the right time and win some boards for most people but some TRULY deserve it. Such as the following story.

However, I have a good buddy that made his E7 in under 6 years. He even made his E6 in LESS than three years (Battle Field Promotion) It was subsequently taken back from him due to TIS requirements not being met although as soon as he hit 3 years they gave it right back. Then two years later he got his sequence number and then got picked up prior to his 6th year in. This happens to Soldiers who outshine their peers and superiors and someone with 3-4 stars notices and fires people and puts YOU in their place.

Good job SA.
