Promotions were tougher to get through during my tour. We had to have a promotable slot in order to get someone promoted. We used some very creative thinking to get deserving guys promoted. Some guys got promoted into MOS's that had zero relevance to their job. I figured if you couldn't promote someone you needed to recognize outstanding service. As a result, I spent a lot of time writing recommendations for awards and letters of appreciation. I had guys who had been there for over 18 months who had never been promoted and had little hope of getting promoted. I spent the week before I left holed up in a battalion BOQ doing nothing but writing letters and recommendations.
