As prior enlisted your base pay will be as an O3E >8 years. It's funky how they calculate it for prior enlisted but you count your active time + time on IRR which will be 8 years if you did your initial obligation and got out with no ACTIVE reserve time.
You only count the active duty time for retirement years.
