“With this new temporary promotion policy, we have the ability to have soldiers starting a family being given the opportunity to be promoted with their peers and still get their professional military education after they complete their postpartum profile,” said Sgt. Maj. Mark Clark, the G-1 sergeant major. Soldiers will be deferring classes like the Basic Leadership Course and the Advanced Leadership Course. In 2019, only about 300 soldiers were unable to promote due to deployments. The Army did not keep track of the number of times pregnancies prevented promotions. However, Clark mentioned that the Army hopes the new policy will not deter women from starting a family now that they know their career trajectory will not be disrupted. Many may be wondering how these soldiers will be qualified for their next position without the required education. Grinston said that was a concern in the past. “There are three things that gets at yahoo you really through the gates for promotion,” Grinston said.
