Military Matters: Army promotions may be at risk

(WTVM) – Time is running out for soldiers who want a promotion, but they only have themselves to blame.

The U.S. Army says about 14,000 soldiers have failed to complete the proper level of military education they need to move up in rank.

Many have avoided the coursework through deferments and waivers— costing them in the long run.

Troops that fail to keep up with the education requirements run the risk of being kicked out of the military.
