At my last unit, I was promoted to CPL by my BN commander. I was under the impression it did not carry to another unit, however other NCOs told me to wear it to my next unit and if they had a slot for an NCO, I might get to keep it. So I did, and as I was in-processing the question came up if I was DA Select or not. I told them I did not think so. They looked at my promotion order and said since it was routed through HRC, I got to keep it. Does that make me DA Select, or could I end up losing it at some point? I don't mind, it's not really a loss in pay, but it is nice to not blend into a sea of SPC's and once you get into the mind set of being an NCO and leader, it is hard to break out of that.
