the the general inability of in a volunteer organizaiton "up and/or out".

Members cycle through legit PD and progression over a 10-15 year period,
then cycle back to the unit and the whole thing breaks as FGOs are sitting
back in rank and file.

And if you try to "up and out" in CAP, the whole thing comes down around you in what,
5 years?

Agreed, so not proposing "up or out", I'm proposing Train, Serve, Contribute or stay where you are.  And to move up, you must move up.

Not all Navy officers have Bachelor degrees - there are enlisted members who are selected for the LDO/CWO program w/o degrees, also Army Warrant are not required to have degrees (i.e. High School to Flight School).  W-2 to W-5 are commissioned officers BTW.

Let's not get into the technicalities of non-O-grades from posts made 2 years ago.
