    Getting Promoted! :) Finally!


    Yep finally getting promoted to Sergeant.

    I joined the Marine Corps back in 2006 straight out of high school. Was promoted to Corporal 6 months before I finished up my 4 year contract on the active side.

    I haven't done anything military wise for 2 years. So I decided to get my feet wet again. (Civilian life is quite boring most of the time)

    So I went in with the intention to get some training in and to mentor the other Marines at the nearby reserve facility. With a possibility to get promoted.

    After you get out your score will be active for one full year then it will later get reset to 0. You have to update your Physical fitness test and combat fitness test then your scores will be updated.

    So I finally got my tests completed (which they didn't suffer at all) after being out for 2 years I only dropped 2 points from the last PFT and CFT that I did (haven't worked out at all since then lol)

    So my scores finally updated mid December and i finally got selected just before the new year.

    Your Cutting score is broken down into 7 categories.

    Rifle range score max 300 points
    PFT max 300 points
    CFT max 300 points
    Proficiency max 50 points
    Conduct max 50 points
    Time in service 2 points per month
    Time in grade 5 points per month

    I picked up with a score of 1751 which was 99 points over

    Should be getting promoted on the 11th
    That's when I go in to the reserve center for January's training. So we will see when I get back.
