Correct, That would not apply to E-3 or E-4's. I could not find any other recent reclassification artcles for 31E.

Just a follow up son #1 is getting on his hometown Police Department. Son #2 has 18 months left in the service on 4/15/14 and has been at Fort Leavenworth for 5 months.

Default 31e

Just a follow up. Son #1 just hired by his home city in Massachusetts as a police officer, and entered into the Police Academy. He is in his third week. Massachusetts General Law Chapter 4 Section 7 Clause 43 defines what a "veteran is during a declared war". Civil Service in Massachusetts places "all veterans whose service is during a declared war" above non veterans on hiring lists regardless of score, so long as there is a passing grade of 70, and all disabled veterans during a declared war above veterans. Massachusetts Police officers are one of the only states in the country that allow police details. Cops make an average of $45/hr, 4 hour minimum, 8 guaranteed hours over 4 hours, time and a half after 8 hours, on their days off directing traffic. Patrolmen in Massachusetts easily make into the six figures after a couple of years. Son #1 also is paying into the retirement system for each of the three years he was in the Army (up to 4 years active duty) so that he can buy back his military time and get it credited as credible time in the pension system. In Massachusetts you get 80% retirement after 32 years of service and 55 years of age. None of this would have happened if son #1 did not go into the Army. At the time son #1 entered the service he took the Army repayment program in lieu of the GI Bill because he had graduated from college and had his bachelors degree prior to going into the service. The Army paid off his loans. He is 26, college educated, debt free, a veteran, and gainfully employed.
Son #2 was promoted in June to Specialist and has 14 months and change to go before he ETS'. He is still working at Fort Leavenworth Kansas as a 31E and has applied for a Civil Service Military make up exam for the same test his brother took. Massachusetts Civil Service allows up to 6 months after a veteran exits the service to take the test, so long as he signed up to take the exam on time. Son #2 also gets the GI bill when he gets out. Son #2 is starting to realize that his military service obligation is winding down.

Thanks for the updates sgttrunk. It's nice to hear about the success stories, about those who "got it", on their way to a productive life. I'm sure your family is proud.
