Cadet Promotion Documents

Items needing to be updated have been found in the current promotion documents previously provided to cadets, and there have been also some questions as to specific requirements on some ranks.

The promotion documents have been updated to better articulate the specific promotion requirements for each rank, and the senior members believe these updated documents clarify both the requirements and the corresponding CAP source of the requirements.
