Re: Enlisted Promotion History
Prior to WAPS promotions were at the unit level. A long retired Chief I know told me the story of TSgt promotions in the 1960's. At one of his assignments the minimum local requirement to be considered eligible for promotion to TSgt was 10 years TIS and MARRIED.
WAPS is not perfect (anyone have any example of something that is?), but has stood the test of time for 43 years with only a couple of minor adjustments.
