Hello I know it's been a while. I have a concern. My son is reserve and he graduated from his MOS back in November of 2014. I was wondering how long it takes for him to get promoted to Lance Corporal? Does it make a difference because he is reserves? I have seen many posts on Fb of many that graduated the same time as him and are Lance Corporals. How can I find out?See More
