Bias alleged in Naval Reserve Senior and Master Chiefs Promotion Board; Advancements on hold

Today the Navy Times reports here that the Chief of Naval Personnel, Vice Admiral Mark Ferguson, has ordered a hold on promotions of Senior and Master Chiefs in the U.S. Naval Reserve. The hold is due to allegations of bias in that one of the promotions board panels may have "not been conducted in a fair and impartial manner." If bias is found the results of the panel in question may be tossed out and a new panel could be convened to reconsider promotions. The hold is expected to be lifted on or before 30 June 2009 and affects approximately 2,570 board eligible reserve chiefs and senior chiefs.
