You realize, this means that he made if from Second Lieutenant all the way to Colonel in six years? With, according to Hughes, a demotion in there somewhere? And he was promoted to Colonel, anime wise, three years ago? He's got to have been promoted out of zone at least once. Probably twice.

That does, now I think about it, make the chaff about him being ambitious and promotion-hungry make a bit more sense.

Man, now I wanna know what he did to get demoted!

an old thread, but i was looking at the memories of this lj and...
Wait, arent state alchemist giving the position of major? So, maybe that's how Roy jumped rank so fast, maybe after the war since second L. is the first and lowest "commissioned officer" rank, and major is three ranks higher.
