making the next rank

I just enlisted back in the Reserves after a 6yr brake in service. I got to keep my E-5, however, my date of rank changed to the day I re-joined. I do not have WLC yet and I was wondering how fast can i get to E-6.

I understand that I can read the regs and I don't mean to sound ignorant.. I just figured since i have been out, there as been so many different changes on promotions that all the regs have not been 100% updated. Not trying to degrade anything. Just a simple question thats all.

Search regulations for "enlisted promotions" and you will find what you need. You should know where to find the answer to this one, because as a SGT or SSG some Soldier will ask you, "When can I get promoted?" and you will need to know how to find the answer without asking anonymous weirdoes on the intertubez...

I'm an E-5. If you think saying E-5 instead of SGT makes a difference then you value your stripes too much.
@Eyesinthesky - Agreed. I notice a lot on this forum that people are quick to put others down rather than help others out. Without talking down to this guy, they could have simply supplied him with a good answer. Instead, they put him down and make themselves sound immature soldiers themselves.

Thanks, I'll be here all week. Big Grin

And I was an NCO twice as long as I've been a WO, which also happens to be how long I was "junior enlisted"....
