    promotion points question

    Advertisements
    The May 2008 points are posted and i was just wondering once they are up what are the chances of them going up or down? Also, if you have the points to get promoted what happens from there? Will my DH need to turn anything in or will it just happen automatically? He's Army...don't know if promotions work different from branch to branch. This question is about going from e-4 to e-5

    They could go up or down the next month, but for the month of May that is what it is at. I don't think DH has ever had to turn anything in. His command should take care of everything.

    YAY! I sure hope this all falls into place. DH has been busting his butt to get the points to be promoted. And the points finally fell for May.

    If he has the points, he should automatically be promoted(if he's been to board, lol). Congrats! I know DH hated the wait from e-4 to e-5, it took him a long time to get there

    yea he went to the board ages ago but then right after when he got his promotable status the points went to 798 and stayed that way for almost a year.

    that's what happened to DH, then it dropped to 5 points above what he had for 6 months, he finally got some more points and submitted them and the month they took effect the points dropped below what he had before the new points, lol
