    Default Prior Service Business Rules


    1. This memorandum supersedes the memorandum dated 1 December 2010 and
    provides new guidance to USAREC in the vacancies that may be filled.
    These Business Rules are all encompassing for Prior Service (PS)
    vacancies. The following vacancies are available provided the applicant
    is otherwise qualified.

    a. Vacancies by grade and MOS:

    (1) Grades E-1 thru E-4 - 11C, 12B, 12Y, 13T, 14T, 15Q, 25S,
    35F, 35L, 35N, 35P (language dependent), 68M, 89D, 91F or 91S.

    (2) Grade E-5 - 35F, 35L, 35N or 35P (language dependent) or
    91F.

    (3) Grade E-6 - 35L

    (4) Grade E-7 - no vacancies. Changes monthly based on the
    needs of the Army.

    (5) Grade E-8 - no vacancies. Changes monthly based on the
    needs of the Army.

    (6) Grade E-9 - no vacancies. Changes monthly based on the
    needs of the Army.

    b. There are currently no retraining opportunities in any pay
    grade.

    (1) Grades E-1 thru E-4 no vacancies.

    (2) Grade E-5 - no vacancies.

    (3) Grades E-6 and above - no vacancies.


    The biggest change here is that as of 1 December E1-E3 now fall under the business rules, in the past Business Rules only applied to E4 and above and E3 and below could come back almost like a brand new Soldier with their choice of MOS...this is no more.

    If now was my time to reenlist- would these rules apply to me? Or are these only for Soldiers who left and want to return?

    I worry about the Army having no need for me once my 4 years is up.

    This is only for Prior Service folks. Once you're in, it's easy to stay in as long as you don't have disciplinary problems, or fail physical fitness or body fat standards. They'll even retrain you into a new MOS if your current one is phased out. The hardest reenlistment to get people to do is the first one - so you are usually offered incentives like futy station of choice, reclassification into a new MOS, Airborne school, and similar.

    You will be fine, this is for people that get out and try to come back in. Unless you are failing every PT test, weight test, always getting in trouble (DUI, underage drinking, etc), you shouldnt have any problem reenlisting before your contract is up. The Army wants to keep people in, hence why its easier to reenlist than to get out and come back in.

    Just saw this on the goarmy forums, and with all the PS questions thought I'd add it here.


    1. This memorandum supersedes the memorandum dated 3 January 2011 and provides
    new guidance to USAREC in the vacancies that may be filled. These Business Rules are all encompassing for Prior Service (PS) vacancies. The following vacancies are available provided the applicant is otherwise qualified.

    a. Vacancies by grade and MOS:

    (1) Grades E-1 thru E-4 - 11C, 14T, 15Q, 35L, 35P (language dependent), 68M, 89D.

    (2) Grades E-1 thru E-4 - AIRBORNE qualified only - 12B, 12Y, 13T, 25S, 35F, 35L, 35N or 91F.

    (3) Grade E-5 - 35F, 35L, 35N or 35P (language dependent) or 91F.

    (4) Grade E-6 - no vacancies.

    (5) Grade E-7 - no vacancies. Changes monthly based on the needs of the Army.

    (6) Grade E-8 - no vacancies. Changes monthly based on the needs of the Army.

    (7) Grade E-9 - no vacancies. Changes monthly based on the needs of the Army.

    b. If no vacancy exists, the following MOSs will be used for retraining:

    (1) Grades E-1 thru E-4 - 18X.

    (2) Grade E-5 - no vacancies.

    (3) Grades E-6 and above - no vacancies.

    c. If applicant holds the grade and MOS that is listed in paragraph 1a above, the applicant will enlist for Option 18, (U.S. Army First Assignment); Prior Service Accession Branch (USAREC) will validate MOS qualifications.

    2. For applicants who require a grade determination, Prior Service Accession Branch (USAREC) will determine the enlistment grade as follows:

    a. Applicant must enlist in the Delayed Status within 30 days of final grade determination. He/she must understand that the vacancies constantly change; if the grade determination expires prior to enlisting into the Delayed Status, they could be subject to disapproval.

    b. If applicant does not hold the grade and MOS that has an open vacancy listed in paragraph 1a above and there are no retraining vacancies in current grade listed in paragraph 1b above, he/she will not be granted accession at this time. Administrative reduction is no longer authorized to fill a vacancy.

    c. Training opportunities exist for MOSs and grades listed in paragraph 1b above, however, training is limited. Once all training seats have been filled, the NCOIC of the ROC will send an email out to all BN Operations and Senior Guidance Counselors notifying them of this information.

    3. All PS applicants that hold an ASI may submit for an exception to policy without regards to the listed MOS vacancies in paragraph 1a above. Not all exceptions are favorably considered.

    4. Point of contact for this message through your chain of command is Policy Branch, USAREC HQS RCRO-EPP at [phone number removed by filter due to AAS Policy] ext 3.
