“If there’s 100 people on that board and the Army can only promote 80, even though they may all be top-notch Soldiers, it’s how they rank among themselves provided that they are all fully qualified.” The Army, Mayer said, is an organization that truly cares about its people, but it also knows that not all Soldiers can be promoted. “So we don’t want anyone to fall short and think something is happening or there’s an expectation when there’s not. “OK, you did all that’s required, but how well did you do it? “Therein lies your efficiency report that talks to a Soldier’s potential for advancement to the next higher rank.” “So we’re just trying to alert Soldiers that (their) record could be looked at for just about anything, so just keep it up to date and make sure there’s a validating document to support whatever entry is in (the) file,” Mayer said.

But if a Soldier doesn’t do his or her due diligence, “the assignment that you want could go to someone else or you could not get promoted,” Mayer said.
