    133 Navy Sailors advanced to E6 in Error

    Navy: 133 sailors were on E-6 list in error

    By Mark D. Faram - Staff writer

    Because of an error in calculating advancement quotas, 133 full-time support sailors identified for advancement to petty officer first class should not have been on the spring E-6 list, Navy officials say.

    Personnel officials are identifying which sailors should not have been advanced and will soon notify the sailorsí commands.

    Also, officials say another 31 sailors will soon get the word that they will advance, also because of a miscalculation of quotas; some ratings were shorted quotas they were supposed to get.

    Further complicating the issue is the fact that many of the misidentified sailors already may be wearing first-class crows. New command-driven education requirements that must be met before sailors can be frocked will not kick in for E-6 sailors until this fallís advancement cycle.

    Frocking is a Navy tradition that allows sailors to assume the title, responsibilities perks of their new rank before they are paid for it.

    Officials did not say how the error happened or how it was discovered.

    Check NavyTimes.com for updates and the corrected lists.

    Well, if it's FTS, it's not the first time they've made such a big boo-boo. Last advancement cycle they messed up too.
