Date of Rank

The date a promotion is effective. Usually the date of rank is prior to the date of promotion (sometimes by days, weeks or years depending on the requirements of the promoting authority). Date of rank is used to establish precedence for promotion to the next higher rank and to establish seniority among individuals of the same rank (see General of the Armies).
