Big Army wants to promote me, can my brigade say no?

I was picked up this month and my name is clearly showing on the by name list. My S1 is questioning my PPW because it was not updated until the 10th, never the less I was picked up. They are saying that Brigade can reject my packet, is this possible? How can Brigade say no when "Big Army" says yes? This is not a case of anything being "Jimmied." I have all required documents to support my point standing. Also, they are not considering 6 of my college credits because someone read my transcripts wrong, and 3 of my courses that I took to max out my military education did not post. One of the 3 is stating that it is not worth hours but it is listed as being worth 17 hours. I really feel is if the system is faulty! Who can I speak with, or would it even matter? I want to fight this to the fullest!.. Read the Answer»

Does my career have to be put on hold because of Brigade’s mistake?

I missed points for E6 two months ago by 5 points. My S1 messed up my ERB and put more points than i had. HRC had me on the by-name list for the March 1, my BN S1 told Brigade to take me off the by-name list since i missed the points. Unfortunately, Brigade never took me off and points just came out and I have 200 more points than i need for promotion, but i am not on the by-name list since Brigade didn't do their job. Is there a way i can get promoted or does my career have to hit a stand still again while I wait for next month's points to come out?.. Read the Answer»
