US Military Registers - Part 4

Posted: 23 Feb 2014 12:15PM GMT
Classification: Query
In the WIKI instructions, it states "When multiple military dates appear for an individual, key the most recent date"...On the images I am keying there are two military date columns: Promotional Elig Date and Basic Pay Entry Date. In this instance, it seems to me that the date to key would be the basic pay entry date as it records an actual date, while the promotional elig date is a not an actual date, but the date of a possibility. Since the person might have left service before that date, I think using that date would be confusing and problematic for researchers. (See attachment)
