    I left the Army as a E-4 (P),and the National Guard,the same.
    As a medic all the E-5 slots were taken,and in order to get rank,I would have had to wait
    a lot longer for a slot,or change MOS from 91A to say 91C,then maybe I would of had a better
    chance to get rank.I had already taken CLEP tests,coraspondence courses,college courses,
    and many other things like military classes,to try to get enough points to get rank as a medic,
    and that's why I got the "P" after my rank,meaning permotable. I even went to PLDC,
    but there was no slot for me at that time to get E-5. OH well,no big deal.

    You know spf159753
    I just read your 1st post, if life had led you into the upsizing Army (active) in 1984, you would have busted to SSG/E6 in 3 years hard charging, lo-c/o points and many open spots 2 fill, I know I made 2-stripes in 4 years as did most of my junior NCO peers, you got screwed in AR, DOD was promoting active, not AR/NG's, DOD knew Iraq or Iran or what was left of the Warsaw Pact (Balkans) would pull some stuff, and wanted good NCO's fast. Then after GW-1 the inevitable drawdown that follows each conflict. GHB turned into Clinton and no one got promoted, 1/3 of my peers were d/c-ed for average NCOER's or 1 minor SNAFU. We all ended up doing 2-3 other soldiers jobs and if you could not hack 4 or 5 additional duties as well as being a 'star' in your own 91 MOS U got a non-negoitable early out with a 1-time 'chump-change' pay-off, many of my peers cashed in @ 15 or 18 years for a lousy $15-20K, when if they had made it to 20, a pension for life awaited.
    So don't cut yourself down M8, you were lucky enough to miss some of the very darkest 'peaceful' days of the Bill Clinton draw-down Army massacre.
