I recently PCSed, at my last unit I was a CPL, I have my 4187 that shows my lateral promotion. My question is, my buddy was laterally promoted the same day, except his 4187 was sent to HRC or at least updated to CPL, mine is not. On all his records it shows CPL, mine is SPC. My form was approved by a battalion commander. Any help would be appreciated! Thank you.

You PCS'd to a new position so HRC most likely removed the rank. You would need to meet the requirements for CPL again and be reappointed. Or, you could just make points for SGT and eliminate the need for the conversation all together. :)
If you consider yourself a leader, it does not matter what rank you are wearing if you want to step up and make things happen.

Best of luck. Now that you have been a CPL, hopefully you get the points you need to become a SGT.

I truly believe in your last sentence and wish to follow it in my military and civilian life. I was a SPC Squad Leader for four years and had a CPL under me (awkward) but the mentality of the individual is huge. SGT (Join to see) at this point you show as a SGT something went well! That's proof, so continue to good work.

Your promotion was through that unit and BN not a HRC DA promotion which is permanent so once you PCS'ed you went back to SPC and he hasn't moved yet so his is still through same unit once he moves his will be taken as well! Now with that being said still at it to your IPERMS cause that shows the board later on your unit had confidence in your NCO potential!

I would suggest that you strive to make points so that you become a SGT. Said to say that unless your DA CPL it's not permenant.
