    It only goes by the date you arrived there. Everyone served the same numer of days or months. If I recall it was 24 months for most, but involuntary extensions were commonplace due to shortages in SOME career firlds. They SELDOM had shortages in the medical fields because LOTSSS of college grads were enlisting in the medical field so that they would get DRAFTED as an infantryman. As far as I know they Army has never use a "point" system.
