West point graduates get promoted faster than others because the are favored for assignments at important posts throughout the world. Of course, you need a mentor, who also is a West Point graduate.

I'm not sure what being a West Point graduate has to do with this promotion. General McGillicuddy was a graduate of the U. S. Air Force Academy. Since he is Air Force, there's probably not much chance he graduated from the U. S. Army's West Point.
