|Promotion selection eligibility|
General. To be eligible for selection for promotion, an RC officer not on extended active duty must:
Reserve appointments. Upon release from active duty, officers with Reserve appointments are transferred in the grade satisfactorily held while on the ADL and, if accepted, may transfer to an ARNG unit or USAR TPU; otherwise, they are transferred to the USAR IRR. The officer also retains his or her time in grade. Officers on the ADL selected for promotion, removed from the ADL before being promoted, and transferred to the RASL in the same competitive category, shall be placed on an appropriate promotion list for Reserve of the Army promotion without the need for further consideration. Regular Army officers who leave active service must apply and be accepted for a first-time Reserve appointment to enter Re-serve duty.
