I ask this because I knew some very great Navy PO1 ( E-6)who were forced out for not making Chief(E-7)

Some were in a rating that advancing after E-5 was very difficult.
They recently "relaxed" the High Year Tenure rules (they can stay longer) in the Navy.

Navy increases up or out limits for petty officers

Don't be too proud to relay that. Consider yourself lucky and I hope you do well in the AF.
