Officers may be advanced in permanent grade at earlier periods than the above table indicates, if vacancies exist and the Secretary of the Army deems it desirable to fill them by early advancement.

The permanent promotion of a 2d lieutenant to 1st lieutenant, after the 3 years prescribed above, is automatic unless he is found not fully qualified. (To determine this point his record is screened before the completion of the 3-year period.) For permanent promotion to the grades of captain, major, and lieutenant colonel, an officer must be selected by a board. Any officer not selected by two consecutive boards is eliminated.

A Regular officer in the permanent grade of lieutenant colonel, who has not been selected for promotion to the permanent grade of colonel before completing 28 years of service, is retired. A Regular officer in the permanent grade of colonel or brigadier general, who has not been selected for promotion to a higher permanent grade after serving 5 years in grade and completing 30 years of service, is retired unless he is a brigadier general approved for retention until age 60. A Regular offcer in the permanent grade of major general is retired after serving 5 years in grade and completing 35 years of service, unless he is approved for retention to the age of 60 (or 64).

For further information on retirement of Army personnel, see chapter 7.

RESERVE COMMISSIONED OFFICERS; PERMANENT PROMOTION. The Reserve Components of the Army are required to maintain an organization constantly manned and ready for mobilization. Therefore, permanent promotions are made in those components regardless of whether the Reserve offcer is on active duty or not. Such promotions follow the procedures for Regular Army promotions. The prescribed grade distribution for the Reserves is currently under revision.

COMMISSIONED OFFICERS; TEMPORARY PROMOTION. Temporary

promotions in the Active Army are made when the size of the Army is such that the officers of the Regular Army and of the reserve on active duty do not provide the required strength in the various grades. Such promotions seek to recognize the best and most able officers serving on active duty, regardless of component, with eligibility determined by the length of active duty service in a lower grade. The temporary grade distribution for the Active Army is based on the total number of commissioned officers on active duty, in accordance with statutory limitations, and is determined in conjunction with the annual appropriation act. The selection of officers for temporary promotion to the grades of captain, major, lieutenant colonel, and colonel is accomplished by selection boards at Headquarters, Department of the Army. When possible, boards are convened on an annual basis.

The temporary promotion of 2d lieutenants to 1st lieutenants has been dele. gated to commanders in the field.

Selection for promotion to CWO, W-2, is made on the "fully qualified" basis, with no restriction on the maximum number that may be chosen. In making its selections the Board has access to the officer's entire record. The Board's findings are not final until acted upon by the Secretary of the Army, who may approve or disapprove them in whole or in part.

Warrant officers not recommended or approved for permanent promotion are considered a second time by the Selection Board to meet in the following year. Failure of selection by the second board imposes mandatory retirement if the individual has completed 20 years active Federal service, or mandatory separation with severance pay if he has less than 18 years of service. Those with 18 years of service completed are retained until they are eligible for retirement.

WARRANT OFFICERS, RESERVE; PERMANENT PROMOTION. Procedures similar to the above are employed for the permanent promotion of Reserve warrant officers on active duty, in their reserve grades. However, promotion in a permanent reserve grade does not affect the active duty grade in which serving.

WARRANT OFFICERS, ACTIVE ARMY; TEMPORARY PROMOTION. The Secretary of the Army is authorized to effect the temporary promotion of warrant officers on active duty, under such regulations as he may prescribe. There are no specific statutory requirements. Temporary promotions made to fill active duty grade vacancies, considering the authorized strength for the fiscal year. The eligibility criteria are identical for all warrant officers on active duty, without regard to component.

Temporary Promotion to W-3 and W-4. Unlike permanent promotions, there are no fixed time-in-grade requirements for temporary promotion to the two top grades. Selection Boards are convened each year, or

as otherwise required, within Headquarters, Department of the Army, to consider all warrant offcers who meet the time-in-grade criteria which may be established. The time-in-grade standard may vary from

Under this system the Selection Board is furnished a number reflecting the maximum number that may be selected in each grade from those being considered.
