    Promotions

    Advertisements
    [I think this is where this is supposed to go, if not, feel free to move it ]

    I do not mean to offend ANYBODY by my question, I am just simply curious.

    My SO just recently got promoted to E-2
    Now, I was wondering if his promotion was based on the fact that he graduates AIT soon or if it's because of something that he accomplished.

    Either way, I realize that AIT is a huge accomplishment and am totally proud of him.
    I'm not asking to demean his promotion in any way whatsoever, since I know that any task in the military is a huge accomplishment.
    I'm just simply curious

    Promotions are automatic until E4. After that they have to test or pass boards. He can get waivers for early promotions, those are based on merit and performance. Each promotion has a time in grade and time in service requirement. They can waive 6 months of the time in service requirement.

    The promotion criteria for promotion to the ranks of E-2 to E-4 are:
    •Private (E-2) - Six months time-in-grade (TIG) as a private (E-1).
    •Private First Class (E-3) - Four months TIG as a Private (E-2) and 12 months time-in-service (TIS).
    •Specialist/Corporal (E-4) - 6 months TIG with 24 months TIS

    Ah! Okay thank you, that clears it up.
    I was just curious, but I didn't want to ask him and offend him, KWIM?
    As I said, I'm extremely proud of him either way and didn't want to demean his position

    I didn't realize E4 was automatic in the Army, it's not in the Navy.

    I was just going to ask about E4 in the Army because I know that E4 is both Specialist and Corporal ... and some of the people we've known have gone straight from Specialist to E5 and then some of them are Specialist -> Corporal -> E5.

    Is there a difference there or is it something like it depends on the needs of the unit/soldier/etc?

    Ya my husband said that up to E4 is automatic with time in service/time in grade.
    He should be getting E3 soon with his time in service from his prior service and then the time now.
    He went to basic as an E2..
