If you want to advance to LCDR sooner, lateral transfer to 1610.

In my case, I lateral transferred to 1610 this year and now find myself toward the top of the zone for LCDR. Had I remained an LDO I would not be in zone this year, and possibly not even next year (can't say for sure until next year's message comes out).
BTW, I have never heard of age stopping someone from advancing. I can think of some pretty old dogs out there, Captain Smietana for example (now retired), who continued to select based on their superior service, despite their advanced age (no offense sir!).
