What do people think about upon a Specialist passing a promotion board them becoming a Corpral? I think this system would be beneficial to soldiers by allowing them to become more familiar with what their responsibilities will be when they make points and are promoted to Sergeant.

I don't think a board is necessary for the coropral rank, because in order to be promoted to corporal they need to have already demonstrated leadership abilities and most, that I encountered at least, were already promotable to E5. If a board was introduced we would have too many corporals in an already saturated NCO pool. What leadership positions could they hold other than squad leader? I'm thinking of in a combat arms unit of course. I personally don't think the coropral rank should be used outside of a combat unit. Nothing personal just my own opinion.
