    I don't like it, at least not the way the describe it.

    Certain connections, careers, and military branch can greatly affect rank and promotions.

    Hell, even pissing off your boss and getting a shitty EPR/OPR is enough to screw some people out of a promotion for AT LEAST an extra year.

    It seems to me that even if you are promoted later as a result of pissing off your boss, that this might mean that it just means you didn't make "time in grade" for that particular pay grade. So you could possibly make it up during the next paygrade, with the next boss. Over time it might even out.


    This is reasonable... If you consider that you're paid for the job that you do, then the number of children/wife you have shouldn't really reflect how much you get paid. Getting married and having children is a personal choice, not a professional choice.

    there are so many benefits already, both tangible and intangible, that married servicemembers receive, i don't think single members should be payed less, just because they haven't chosen to get married.
