    All three of my friends are E-3's (An 11b like me, 42A (HR) and an AF Cook) and only one of them actually deserves it. The other two were simply given it for graduating high school or something. I'm not really sure what I have to do to get promoted. I'm sick of getting shit and having to rank on my shoulder. I've got like 6 months TIS, a pretty decent PT score (Only missed the 300 by a couple each time), aced the damn ASVAB... what do I have to do?

    i take it your out of basic training?
    stop complaining asshat, the more you complain about it, the more people wont want to promote you.

    Even if you dont openly complain, you can probably tell your bitter. Just suck it up and look like you actually enjoy your job

    I'm not going to go around and bitch or anything, and I love my job (Best job in the world), and it really isn't so bad when I'm on duty, it's that my budies have this shit to hold over me when we're off duty. Plus the next lowest rank in my company is E-3, and there's two of them.

    dude if your infantry you will rank quickly to e-4 just be patient. Also no matter what rank is on your collar shitbags will be shitbags and sqaured away will be squared away. People do notice those things

    Shit will go by quickly.

    Stop bitching and show them you are hot shit. Maybe you might get thrown on a board or something.

    Yeah, I don't even really care about moving up that much right now, I just hate being a "No Insignia", especially when my pog buddy got E-3 and he can barely read. (He has no idea why he was given rank). Oh well, I'm probably just bitching over nothing.

    Sorry, I didn't realize my font and grammatical choices presented an attitude. It wasn't my intent. I think I went about this thread the wrong way.

    E-2 is automatic at 6 months unless you are some sort of major fuckup. I never even got orders or anything for it or anything, when it showed up on my LES when I was in AIT I just put it on. At graduation a bunch of guys got bitched at because they had made E-2 but didn't have it on their uniforms lol.

    Really? hmm, I don't remember my entry date, so if that's true I should probably be all set within the month. If not I'll sweet talk my way into skipping to E-4 or something. I can be very charming.
