I see, I've seen someone say Cpl is a protected rank, is that just wrong? Not sure if you'd know. I'm assuming if I were to get bumped down to Avr, my time served PRes would count toward an IPC or 2? I've seen you in the AES Op thread, would I be able to DM you some questions I have about the trade that weren't in the thread? Thanks for the response.
I don't know that it's a protected rank; if you're actual accumulated time = 1 year, 25 days then you'd get that time counted towards your PI and you should have the opportunity to buy back that time for pension purposes.
That will all come down in your CT offer messaging.
Feel free to DM me any questions you have, for sure.
