I got an email from my wife today saying how her younger brother is joining the Army after he graduates high school. He was promised a slot in special forces and green berets. On completion of his training they said he would recieve E5. Does this sound right at all? My wife said she read the contract and thats what it said. Not a bad deal if his recruiter is not jerking him around, just sounds odd that they would promise E5 after training.
