  • Effective date of promotion question

    I have been coded 00D for the last 14 months while I await BOLC. (Yes, I COULD have attended much sooner, but family obligations and voluntary branch reassignment have precluded that.) My 18 months TIG will arrive two weeks before I even leave for my branch course. One of my fellow PLs that had been in a similar situation indicated that his eventual DOR was postdated to reflect his 18 month mark AFTER he became branch qualified and promoted. Can anyone verify the veracity of this? As an O1E with 22 years service, potential back pay for maxed O2E would be substantially different during 17+ weeks of TDY.

    In the active component, your TIG starts the day you got pinned. Postponed school date should not make a difference. My hoochmate is a 1LT and he says the same. I did know of NG Warrants that could not get promoted to CW2 (two years after pinning) until they completed WOBC.

      I know definitively that completion of BOLC is required prior to promotion to O2. What I've been told however, that once BOLC is completed and you become eligible the effective DOR would be at 18 months. That's the part I'm trying to verify. Ostensibly, I will have a 4.5 month gap between those two dates; all of it on TDY orders.

        Your DOR will be after completion of BOLC. I was in the same boat, completed BOLC at 20 months, 02E with 12 years of service. I was told that DOR does not back date so to speak. Thus you will have to graduate BOLC then have your commander put in the promotion packet and then wait for the FedRec to come through. I was pinned about a month after BOLC.
