    Congrats on the advancement I heard our results came out yesterday but I'm not to optimistic about it we take advancement tests in the NAVY which are paired with our evals and this past one was the hardest one I have ever taken plus I have been working out of my rate for about two and a half years now (recruiting) and if ya don't use it ya loose it.
