Can I be reduced from E-6 to E4 for inefficency?

I am Active Duty with 13 years TIS. Can I be reduced from E6 to E4 for inefficiency? TDS advised me that I would only be reduced to E5 if the board felt the need, but the board recommended me to be reduced to E4. I am appealing and TDS is trying to get my rank reduced to E5 instead of E4. TDS highlighted AR 600-8-19 and FM 27-1 and their interpretation of the rules and had me take it to Brigade legal, but they said that you may be reduced more than one rank for inefficiency. So I am getting two different answers for this. Do you have any insight? I have another appointment tomorrow with TDS to try and get this resolved. Thank you... Read the Answer»
