I'm putting the finishing touches on volunteering for an OEF deployment but still have a few unanswered questions. Is MILPER 05-261, which allowed for promotion to SSG to deployed personnel that don't have WLC, still in effect? I have not been able to find any MILPER superseding or rescinding this, but I want to be certain. I would really love to pick up my 6, especially since the only thing holding me back was not having WLC. I've been trying and failing to get a WLC slot for nearly 3 years.
