Google-fu is strong

10 USC Sec. 616 01/07/2011

-EXPCITE-
TITLE 10 - ARMED FORCES
Subtitle A - General Military Law
PART II - PERSONNEL
CHAPTER 36 - PROMOTION, SEPARATION, AND INVOLUNTARY RETIREMENT OF
OFFICERS ON THE ACTIVE-DUTY LIST
SUBCHAPTER I - SELECTION BOARDS

-HEAD-
Sec. 616. Recommendations for promotion by selection boards

-STATUTE-
(a) A selection board convened under section 611(a) of this title
shall recommend for promotion to the next higher grade those
officers considered by the board whom the board, giving due
consideration to the needs of the armed force concerned for
officers with particular skills (as noted in the guidelines or
information furnished the board under section 615(b) of this
title), considers best qualified for promotion within each
competitive category considered by the board.
(b) The Secretary of the military department concerned shall
establish the number of officers such a selection board may
recommend for promotion from among officers being considered from
below the promotion zone in any competitive category. Such number
may not exceed the number equal to 10 percent of the maximum number
of officers that the board is authorized to recommend for promotion
in such competitive category, except that the Secretary of Defense
may authorize a greater number, not to exceed 15 percent of the
total number of officers that the board is authorized to recommend
for promotion, if the Secretary of Defense determines that the
needs of the service so require. If the number determined under
this subsection is less than one, the board may recommend one such
officer. The number of officers recommended for promotion from
below the promotion zone does not increase the maximum number of
officers which the board is authorized under section 615 of this
title to recommend for promotion.

So maybe we have to do a little math to determine how many in zone officers there were to determine how it fits with above.

No IZ picks.

Didn't think that was possible.

Can someone educate me, please?


I think you looked at an old list. If you look at the one posted for the FY13 O6 board: http://www.public.navy.mil/bupers-npc/boards/activedutyofficer/06line/Documents/FY-13/FY13%20AO6L%20LOE2.pdf
you will see that 4 were in zone, only 1 above zone.

With the current state of shrinking zones of increasing competitiveness, does anyone really see a chance of BZ selection at any paygrade? It seems like BZ selections were a factor in less lean times.

I understand tougher competition makes for a better community, and I wholeheartedly agree. Poor retention and automatic promotions have dilluted other communities, and I do not want that in ours.

Bill Dodge was above the zone.

May, Musselwhite, Homan and Luke were all IZ (In zone).

You can see the list of eligibles HERE.
