They just do alter the Promotion system in the Guard. The points are a bit harder to track now. But there is a Board. The Board is for your packet and not you. As it would be difficult to have a board for every promotable soldier in the state. Your packet decides your fate.

What really needs to happen is that your company commander needs to vet who is considered to make the list. If they do their job they can stop a lot of soldiers who are not ready from getting promoted. But the issue is that they just give a nod a lot. I can say that I have seen some in my state that did the right thing but then I see some NCOs out there that I wonder how they are still there. If the system is messed up for soldiers not following the system a new system won't fix that. There has to be accountability and adherence to the current program.

Sir.. the AF, AF Reserve and Air Guard use a Weighted Promotion Systen like You just mention. Maybe a bit different in set-up.. For ours the packet is evalled also.. They’re doing some over-haul work on the E-6 TSGT and up through E-9 and I think dropping the fill in the the a,b,C, or d for them..

The active duty promotion system is the worst out of all the branches

I’m AF and I’m out now for a while.. I think the services like Army Reserve and Guard could use a weighted promotion system and a promotion review board. How they do that they’d have to work it out. Maybe AF Reserve and Air Guard could help develop a weighted promotion system
