AF first lieutenants to face selection board

Email Blog Post Print Blog Post Share on Facebook Share on Reddit Share on StumbleUpon

This from Air Force Times: The Air Force is lowering the active-duty promotion rate for captains for the first time in eight years, a move that requires bringing back a selection board for first lieutenants.

The 2011 promotion rate will be 95 percent, down from 100 percent, according to personnel officials; slightly more than half of the 7,100 first lieutenants have one year time-in-grade now and should be close to having two years - the average number for promotion - when the selection board convenes in July.

Captains ready for advancement learned not long ago that they too will have to go before a selection board because the promotion rate for major has been lowered to 90 percent from 95 percent. The board for majors will be in December.
