    LOL. Not even close. I received my commissioning orders during Desert Shield, late 1990. The war ended, nobody got hurt (to the level that everyone, especially the Air Force, was expecting) so they suddenly realized they had too many officers. So they recycled everybody and cut half of us loose. I got my orders rescinded, and I was told I was on "IRR". Whatever that meant. Once I turned 27, I received a letter, addressed to Captain, saying I was being taken off IRR. I had somehow been promoted to Captain during all that time I was never serving.

    OORAH Jay.

    I had no idea that you could be promoted while on IRR. In fact, I remember being told the exact opposite when I got out. You know they have you go to some stupid class and/or counselor so you can learn how to be a silly villian (civilian) again? I'm pretty sure it was during that whole process that someone told me that eligibilty for promotion was more or less "frozen" while on IRR. I wonder if I ever made Staff?
