TSgt Joe C. - one question, do some of those that get promoted truly deserve it? Just saying.

Honest answer...no..my own personal opinion though. Lots of people are great at their job; others not so much. On the same token, some a great at testing for rank, others, not so much. Kind of mix and match with all that and you get what you get. I'm great at my job but terrible at testing. Took me 3 tries to get to E-5 (SSgt) and I doubled that amount of tries getting promoted to E-6 (TSgt). There are those who have been in less than me that hold a higher rank than me; transversely, there are those who have been in ,longer than me that hold a lesser rank than me. Long answer, I know, but there is my take SGT David A. 'Cowboy' Groth

EPR system is now weighted. Must promotes receive 250 points; promote now receive 220 points. Promote category is good for 200 points. Another change is personnel have to score a combined 90 points on the PDG and SKT tests and a minimum of 40 on each test. Just a couple things that have changed over the last few years SMSgt Dr. G.
