I'm a Naval Warrant Officer and I went to NJP last week. I will have to go to a BOI in approx. 12-18 months. I heard that I could be reduced to my Enlisted rank before I was commiisioned. Is that true?
Military Lawyer: Allen M., Esq., Lawyer replied 10 months ago

I cannot assist at this time. I will open the question to others for consideration.
