LTC Stephen F. It looks like the lower/mid-enlisted E-4/E-5; for example 14 years for SGT, even promotable wow, used to be 20 years once upon a time.

I thought that if you became promotable, you were allowed to move into the next higher RCP bracket so SPC(P) would be able to stay in to 14 years and so on. Is this part of a new change?

SSG Warren the RCP changes reflect the implementation of the STEP directive which stands for Select Train Educate Process. Individuals who have not completed NCOES school will not be allowed to stay longer in the Army until that requirement is met.

SFC (Join to see) - thanks, but it just seemed weird being that before if you had the P next to your rank, you'd stay to the RCP of the next higher rank. Now SFC used to be 24 with P 26, MSG/1SG 26 with P 30. I think that was what threw me off. It's whatever the rank states regardless of promotable status.
