HAMPTON, Va. (June 30, 2020) –MAJ Brandon Grooms from the class of 2004 was selected for promotion to Lieutenant Colonel by the FY 20 AC LTC Promotion Board, which was released on June 25th. He was selected as a merit based selection which is phenomenal, because it means his file was so strong that he will be promoted before officers with higher seniority based on date of rank.
The Merit based promotion system is something new which did not exist when many of us were serving, the link below will give you a little more background.
Congratulations! MAJ(P) Grooms, we are very proud of you!
