Navy Selection Boards Set to Restart July 1


Recommended Posts

MILLINGTON, Tenn. (NNS) -- Selection, advancement and continuation boards are all set to restart July 1st, ensuring that Sailors across the fleet are in no way disadvantaged by the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) delays to the original board dates.

 “Our overriding commitment is that no Sailor will be disadvantaged by the delay in boards,” said Rear Adm. Jeff Hughes, commander, Navy Personnel Command.  “Although the boards were postponed, those who are selected for promotion can expect to be assigned the original date of rank and receive any back pay and allowances they’re warranted.” 

Boards were originally postponed on March 18th to ensure the safety of all board participants. Since then, numerous risk mitigation precautions have been included in a comprehensive restart plan to minimize health risk during the board process.  Navy also continues to expand the number of administrative selection boards conducted via virtual means.

“As in our decision to postpone the boards and now in our plans for restart, we carefully assess the COVID-19 risk and will take the necessary precautions going forward to ensure the health and safety of all participants so we can accomplish the selection board mission,” said Hughes.

Sailors’ Official Military Personnel Files will be reviewed as of the original board convening date and their eligibility will remain the same. 

Deadlines for letters to the board remain the same as originally set, except for the Reserve E-7 Board, which now has a deadline of May 18, 2020 to compensate for delays in their eligibility determination. The remaining deadlines remain the same to maintain a fair and impartial balance across the fleet, but Sailors are encouraged to submit a letter if they feel their eligibility is unclear.

The restart plan will enable enlisted advancement board results to be approved and announced within 30 days of a board adjourning. Officer promotion boards require additional reviews and results are expected to be approved and announced 100 days after a board adjourns.

Board members and recorders are still needed, and those who meet the eligibility requirements are urged to submit applications as soon as possible.

      On the day that Airman Apprentice Antonio D. Miller ditched his Navy unit and deserted from the Navy, “Night Fever” by the Bee Gees was the number one song in America, Jimmy Carter was president and junior enlisted sailors couldn’t even begin to explain the meaning of #FYP. But desert Miller did, on April 14, 1978, giving the slip to his Naval Station Norfolk, Virginia, command and remaining on the lam until May of last year, when the long arm of Navy law finally caught up with him, more than 44 years later.

      January 24, 2023   UPDATED PHYSICAL READINESS PROGRAM GUIDES FOR 2023 With the release of OPNAVINST 6110.1K (22 April 2022) and the incorporation of previously released Physical Readiness Program (PRP) NAVADMINS, along with feedback from the Fleet, we have condensed the PRP Guides from 15 to 11.    CFL/ACFLs are highly encouraged to thoroughly review each PRP Guide in its entirety, as several guides have been updated to provide clarity to the Fleet.  Although the guides are written primarily for CFL/ACFLs, all personnel may review the new PRP Guides to fully understand the policies of the Navy Physical Readiness Program.  The new 11 guides are listed below and can be found under the Guides tab to the left: Guide 1:  PRP Policies Guide 2:  Command PRP Checklists Guide 3:  CFL/ACFL and Member’s Responsibilities Guide 4:  Body Composition Assessment (BCA) Guide 5:  Physical Readiness Test (PRT) Guide 6:  PFA Medical Readiness Guide 7:  PRIMS-2 Guide 8:  Managing PFA Records for Pregnant Sailors Guide 9:  Command PT and FEP Guide 10:  Nutrition Resources Guide 11:  Conduct of the PFA in COVID-19 Conditions   With the 2023 PFA cycle approaching, commands are encouraged to include PRP Policy training topics (Medical Waivers, BCA Measurements, mock/official PRT, etc.) within their training schedules and prior to conducting their Official Command PFA Cycle, as prescribed in their 10-week notice.
