National Guard promotion to Sergeant again 1936

No idea how the promotions worked in the National Guard, but I have numerous documents showing my dad's rank changing quite often. Initial enlistment was for three years, then one year enlistments afterwards. Had to start rank over after each enlistment. CRAZY!!!
