Can anyone tell me why the process takes so long for RC officer/warrant promotions to run through the FedRec cycle? I'm an ARNG officer and I've had my state promotion orders for CPT since the middle of April. I've been tracking my packet on the ARNG-G1 website and it was awaiting addition to a scroll until a month ago and last week the scroll was ready to start the approval DoD cycle. Thoughts?

Just think, that in the time that it takes to complete the FEDREC process for U06-17, it is equal to or more than:
1. A deployment, complete with PMT, DEMOB, and leave
2. A full year of college, to include summer session
3. A full-term pregnancy, followed by maternity leave
4. The time it takes to train a fighter pilot (average is 8-9 months)
5. An adjudicated TS clearance, complete with full scope poly
6. The Special Forces Qualification Course, minus language school (and that seemed forever)
7. Six(6) Ranger School Classes, possibly seven (7). Heck, a Ranger School student could recycle each phase twice and still graduate before U06-17 is completed
8. Lastly, I could watch my child grow from birth to that one-year mark when they are walking. Or in my case my child reached the age to graduate college, and then started to have a family of his own, thus beginning #1 all over again in an infinite cycle, much like Groundhog Day.

It kind of puts things in perspective!

Anyone know what it means when your status goes to yellow from green?

Hello, I’m back, albeit temporarily. I merely wanted to say thank you for all of the ‘thumbs up’ for a post I wrote on a whim. I never expected it to garner any attention at all.

CPT (Join to see) - I believe that the colors indicate the timeline that is awaiting action. Mine was green for 60 days, then it turned amber. It turned red at the 120 day mark, and is still red at the SECDEF.

Where did you get that fighter pilot nonsense? Two years generally of flight training of all levels, another two years of combat flight training in an operating unit to become dangerous to the enemy. In 8 months a candidate can scratch his rear and knows general flight theory, maybe what the stick and relief tube are.

Chief, do you think you can get one for June? We're missing 29th May, and coming up 6 June. I find that so far this tracker is more accurate and up to date than what's showing in my "ORB/Soldier Data" section.
