The Army Reserve has attempted to pattern its promotion timeline with Active Duty timelines through the implementation of the Reserve Officer Personnel Management Act ROPMA. Additional policy changes have further shortened the time between Reserve promotion considerations. Current promotion policies do not fully develop junior leaders in the Army Reserve for functional service as field grade officers. Since the Army Reserve has transformed to an Operational Force, the current promotion system must be aligned with Army Reserve career development models and the Army Force Generation ARFORGEN cycle of deployments to allow junior grade officers the opportunity to grow and develop into future field grade commanders and strategic leaders.
