Just before Turkey Day Active Duty Quotas hit the streets! More than 23,664 sailors will earn new petty officer crows in the days before Thanksgiving.
Overall opportunity dipped for the 101,538 test-takers this fall in the active and reserve ranks. Of them, 23.3 percent will be advanced up the petty officer ranks, according to new quotas released Thursday. That’s down from a 24.7 percent shot in the spring.
