I'm looking at applying to the CAD (Call to Active Duty) that will be released (eventually) for FY18. By Army Regulation an individual has to be on active duty orders for a year to be eligible for a promotion board. The Reserves is already a year behind in promotion compared to their active counterparts and I don't want to push it back two years. I called HRC and got two different answers so am just trying to see if someone has gone through this already or if anyone is knowledgable about the topic. I will have a year on orders by the time the new orders would potentially start and I would make sure there wouldn't be a break in service if it does count towards the promotion days. Any insight would be appreciated.

The best idea would be to post under Officer Promotions or CAD on MilSuite in S1Net. There were quite a few questions about this the last time and some great answers in there. If they do not have the answer already posted, there will be some SMEs to provide you with better answers.
I am by no means an expert on this subject. My questions would include what type of orders are required? Do Title 10 orders and Title 32 orders aggregate toward promotion? I would assume they do since I have seen National Guard soldiers promoted while on deployment. Also title 10 and 32 orders add together for retirement.
You are talking about changing components. You are on an ADOS order but you are still a reserve Soldier. Your time on ADOS counts while you are in that component being reserve. Once you change component you have to start accruing your time in grade again as your effective date of rank would be the date you enter the active component.
