I just found out I'm in line for promotion (0-4 Navy). If anyone can give the "promotion board for dummies" class I'd greatly appreciate it as I've been in civilian land for so long I have no clue what I need to do or what needs to be done to be selected. I would REALLY hate to get passed over simply because I don't have an i or t crossed. Although there are many advantages, the significant disadvantage of being out on deferment is not knowing where to start, what needs to be done, who to talk to etc...and all the wonderful military notices read like gobledygook. Thanks in advance for any help!
