Promotion and PRF Information

Recommended Posts

Despite rumors on the AF Promotions Page, the SRs do not have the CY17D lists as of 1300 EST today. Gen Kelly, AFPC 2Star, announced via email that the 19th will be the release date. I called AFPC Promotions today and talked to the OIC. She told me that the big wigs at AFPC were having a meeting about the CY17D board around lunch today. She says that she is “hoping” to get the lists to the SRs by the end of this week and release the board sometime next week but has been told to hold onto them for now. I pressed her for the reason for the delays and she said that from her standpoint there is no reason to delay the release and it seems like they are just holding onto the results for no apparent reason.

AFPC can't seem to get it together at any level.

My guess is that there are gonna be some surprises or something on this board and they are working on the “optics”. That is the only reason for them to hold onto approved results.

"Somehow, despite a 100% promotion opportunity to major, we only promoted 80%"

I suspect you are exactly correct.

Duck you’ve been effectively promoted and mandated 20 years continuation. The AF just needs to find the right lube to make it easier on you. Thanks for the hold up!

I’m waiting for the “it was 100% promotion opportunity for everybody but....”. The question will be if it’s only for guys with QFIs or if they also looked at above the zone/in the zone guys.

Thanks @Duck for the sleuthing. 

Whomever keeps talking about this board at all on the promotions page (last reference was "the board that won't be named") needs to choke themselves.

Don't turn this shithole into the reddit shithole

Use to be that if the list made it through Air University already that you could register for ACSC in correspondence and if it let you then you made major.

 

Edit. Don’t know if it’s still that way. And that was active duty.

Worth a try. I will attempt as soon as I get back to work and report back.

Tried to register for ACSC and it said that my rank was not eligible, so I went back and changed my rank to Major and it still said not eligible. So it obviously doesn’t just look at the rank in your profile. Not putting too much stock in it, but here’s to hoping.

 I tried, but since it's got my rank locked at 1st Lt...no joy.  What a fantastic system from the 90's they've got there.

Instead of handing out school slots from the board, they'll hand out 365's!!  Congratulations on making major above the zone...here's a 365!

You know as funny as that is, you’re probably right with that. Sad as it would be wouldn’t surprise me if they pulled some stunt like this as well.
