  • O4 promotion results will be delayed by 5-6 weeks because the board started late.
  • Do Joint Professional Military Education.

  • Be operationally relevant.
  • Be a model of Honor, Courage, and Commitment and don’t get in trouble.
  • Going to Guam or Japan certainly can’t hurt.
  • Get board certified as soon as you can.
