For the Cycle 241 FY20 active-duty E-8 advancement selection board there are a total of 1,653 quotas for 12,764 eligible E-7 Sailors.

High retention rates and positive response to increased high year tenure gates have slightly reduced overall advancement opportunity.

E-8 advancement opportunity is overall steady. Although it is slightly below last year's opportunity, it remains above the 10-year average of 11.91%.
