ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the comment and discussion on the selection process and the board of the U.S. Navy by a retired officer of the U.S. Navy, Michael A. Yates. Each selection group has a top 10-15% and a bottom 7-10%. Of the vast group in the middle, almost all are capable and can perform well in most assignments. Therefore, since the selection boards are drawing a line based on the number required, little difference exists between the last few to get promoted and the next few that did not.
