Something I'm not very familiar with happened to a friend of mine the other day and I've been trying to dig up some info on it, though I've had
very little success so far.
My friend was just discharged from the USMC- he was a mechanic, I'm not sure of the MOS exactly- worked on small boats at Okinawa if I understand
Anyway, he has just discovered that he has been promoted to E-4 (Corporal). What I'm wondering about is if this is actually common, or if it's
possible that they've promoted him into a needed position, with a mind towards reactivating him.
Anybody know anything about this?
