Rank Structure of the Army Reserve

Most entrants to the Army Reserve join as Enlisted Personnel. The exception to this are ex-Army Officers, Engineers, Architects, Doctors and Dentists. Enlistees undergo recruit training before they are promoted to the rank of Private 2 Star. Once full trained, they may be considered for promotion to the higher ranks (NCOs and Officers)

Officers provide the higher management structure, and will generally be responsible for the welfare and training of a number of enlisted personnel.
