RMKS/1.  This NAVADMIN announces convening of the FY-19 Senior Enlisted 
Continuation Board (SECB) on 3 December 2018.  The SECB will carefully 
consider, without prejudice or partiality, the record of every eligible 
candidate and identify Sailors whose service is no longer in the best 
interest of the Navy.  Among many factors reviewed, documented misconduct 
and/or substandard performance within the past three years will be considered 
to determine whether to continue a board-eligible Sailor.  Examples include, 
but are not limited to, receipt of an evaluation with an individual trait 
grade of 2.0 or below or any documented circumstance related to performance 
that resulted in a Sailors inability to perform in the rating or required 
duties (e.g., loss of a security clearance in a rating that requires a member 
to maintain continuous eligibility).

2.  Eligibility
    a.  Time in service
         (1) Active Component (AC) and Full-Time Support (FTS) E7-E9 Sailors 
with at least 19 years of active service computed from their active duty

         (2) Selected Reserve (SELRES) and Voluntary Training Unit
(VTU) E7-E9 Sailors with at least 20 years of qualifying service as of 31 
August 2018 and three years TIR as of 31 August 2018 will be considered by 
the SECB.
    b.  Fleet Reserve retirement approval
        (1) All Sailors who, as of 16 November 2018, have either a Navy 
Personnel Command (NPC) final authorization to transfer to the Fleet Reserve 
or an approved request to retire on or before 1 September 2019 will be exempt 
from the SECB.  Approved requests will not be modified after 16 November 
        (2)  Sailors meeting all other eligibility requirements who have an 
NPC approved transfer to the Fleet Reserve/retirement/ Retired Reserve (with 
or without pay) after 1 September 2019 will be considered by the SECB.
    c.  Sailors selected for Chief Warrant Officer (CWO) by the Limited Duty 
Officer/CWO In-service Procurement Board held in January 2018 or selected by 
the FY-19 advancement boards will be exempt from the SECB.  CWO selectees who 
decline appointment or are removed from the selection list prior to 15 
November 2018 and meet all other SECB eligibility criteria will be considered 
by the SECB.

3.  Critical Skills Retention Bonus (CSRB)/Selective Retention Bonus (SRB).

5.  LTB Guidance.  A Sailors entire record is available for review in 
determining whether a Sailor should be continued.  Incomplete or incorrect 
records may have an impact on a Sailors selection for continuation.  Commands 
should take proactive steps to ensure eligible Sailors records are properly 
updated and that Sailors review their Official Military Personnel File (OMPF) 
and Performance Summary Record (PSR) and submit a LTB as appropriate.  Each 
Sailor should review his or her OMPF and PSR and then exercise reasonable 
diligence to ensure his or her record is complete and accurate prior to 
convening of SECB in time.  If the OMPF or PSR does not get updated in time, 
Sailors should provide the missing or corrective documentation via his or her 
LTB.  Sailors should not submit a LTB to notify the board that everything is 
complete and accurate in their record.
    a.  Sailors should check their OMPF and PSR for evaluation continuity.  
Any evaluation gaps should be resolved by either submitting the missing 
evaluations in an LTB or a statement in lieu of missing report per chapter 17 
of reference (a).
    b.  Communication to the board must originate from the individual Sailor.
        (1) The LTB may address any information that the Sailor considers 
important.  Sailors should not include items in their LTB that are already 
included in their OMPF or PSR unless the OMPF version is unreadable or the 
PSR is incorrect.
        (2) The LTB must be either digitally signed using the Sailors 
military identity certificate or signed with a hand-written signature.  
Unsigned LTBs will not be presented to the board.
        (3) Third party correspondence is any communication to the board 
which is not accompanied by the Sailors signed LTB as a cover letter.  Third 
party correspondence will not be presented to the board.  Commands are not 
authorized to submit a message to NPC requesting information be presented to 
the board.
        (4) Information received that is not under a signed LTB or not 
received by NPC CSC by the established deadline will not be presented to the 
board.  To verify receipt of an LTB, go to 
https://npccontactcenter.ahf.nmci.navy.mil/oa_html/npc.html or call the NPC 
CSC.  Late or unsigned LTBs may be accepted by NPC Selection Board Support 
Division, but will not be presented to the board and no feedback will be 
provided to the submitter.
        (5) All LTBs and each enclosure must contain the Sailors full name 
and full social security number.  Sailors must verify that the correct board 
number is on their signed cover letter.  The board number is 19478.
    c.  The preferred method to submit a LTB is by encrypted e-mail to 
cscselboard(at)navy.mil.  E-mailed LTBs must be encrypted to protect 
personally identifiable information.  Trouble with file encryption does not 
justify a late LTB.
        (1) If unable to e-mail, Sailors may use regular mail to the 
addresses below.  Mailed LTBs shall be on plain white paper and paper clipped 
(no staples, binders, folders or tabs).

            Navy Personnel Command Customer Service Center

Remarks (Page 13) created through Navy Standard Integrated Personnel System 
(NSIPS) Electronic Service Record (ESR) and witnessed by the CO (by direction 
is not authorized).  After counseling and signatures are obtained, using this 
NAVADMIN as authority, forward the counseling Page 13 to PERS-313 to be 
included in the members OMPF.  Page 13 format is available at

Support Assignment (OSA), or mobilization.

who are not selected to continue will be allowed to complete their 
IAMM/GSA/OSA/mobilization tour and transfer to the Fleet

period of 6 months after return from IAMM/GSA/OSA/mobilization tour to

      A nurse accused of hitting and killing a U.S. Navy chief petty officer with his car after a dispute at a Virginia Beach bar in July was indicted this month on new charges. Joshua Ceruti Robinson was initially charged with malicious wounding, which carries a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison, after police said he hit 40-year-old Stephen “Tyler” Murphy with his car. A grand jury indicted him on one count each of involuntary manslaughter and hit-and-run, which both carry maximum sentences of 10 years, according to Macie Allen, a spokesperson for the Virginia Beach commonwealth’s attorney.
