Well we can't have all the PJs be chiefs either.That's the crappiest thing about being a PJ- it's a very small, very competitive career field. Everyone maxes out medal and enlisted rating points, testing is very tight. Consider last E6 cycle, we promoted 14 total, across the career field.
So, guys that would absolutely smoke the rest of the AF, they have to test against the other superstars in the AF. You end up with guys that SHOULD be NCOs that aren't because of the system. Now we have guys that don't start as E4 and have to wait as much as a year to even get a shot at testing.
