Military Dates

If the "date of entry" is later than the "date of retirement" or any other date on the page related to that person, do we key the date of entry? OR is the date of entry simply the date the bookkeeper/author, whatever entered the data?

I am taking it literally to take the latest date, even if it is the date of entry. Yet, when I started reviewing, I noticed some people disregard the date of entry and key the next latest date and others are keying the date of entry. I stopped reviewing until I can get a definitive answer. I'll probably stop keying those records until I know also.

(My rating is exceptional but I don't know if I can take that as a sign I'm doing it right or not).
