RMKS/1.  The Commander in Chief issued guidance in reference (a), 
establishing changes to standards for accession, retention, separation, in-
service transition, and medical care for transgender persons and persons with 
gender dysphoria seeking entrance into or currently serving in the Military 
Services.
In accordance with reference (b), effective 30 April 2021, these changes 
apply to all Department of the Navy (DON) military personnel, including those 
serving in the Reserve Components.  Until DON policies and procedures are 
updated, reference (c) and this All Navy (ALNAV) message take precedence.

2.  Consistent with policies and procedures set forth in reference (a) and 
(b), all transgender persons who wish to serve in the Armed Forces of the 
United States and can meet the appropriate standards shall be able to do so 
openly and free from discrimination.  The DON remains committed to treating 
all persons with dignity and respect.  No person, solely on the basis of 
gender identity, will be denied accession, involuntarily separated or 
discharged, denied reenlistment or continuation of service, or subjected to 
adverse action or mistreatment.

3. Reference (d) establishes physical and medical standards for appointment, 
enlistment, or induction into the Military Services for transgender persons.

4.  Reference (e) remains in effect, but where it conflicts with reference 
(c), reference (c) takes precedence.

5.  Real Life Experience (RLE) Exception to Policy:
    a.  Reference (c) allows each Military Department and Service to issue 
policy regarding the application of RLE, including RLE in an on-duty status 
before gender marker change in Defense Enrollment Eligibility Reporting 
System.  The Chief of Naval Operations (CNO) and Commandant of the Marine 
Corps
(CMC) shall establish policies and procedures in accordance with enclosure 
(2) of reference (e).

6.  Policy and Procedure Updates:
    a.  The ASN(M&RA) will ensure all DON issuances, as necessary, are 
reviewed and updated to be consistent with references (c) and (d).
    b.  The CNO and the CMC will update all Service-level issuances, as 
necessary, to be consistent with references (c) and (d) and DON-level 
issuance updates, once released.
    c.  References (f), (g), (h), and (i) are all hereby cancelled.

7.  The CNO and CMC will ensure all Navy and Marine Corps personnel, 
respectively, are educated and informed of updated policy and procedures 
pertaining to military service by transgender persons and persons with gender 
dysphoria.

8.  Points of Contact.  Questions regarding this ALNAV should be directed to 
Navy or Marine Corps Service Central Coordination Cells (SCCC):
    a.  Navy SCCC:  Comm:  (703) 604-5084 or e-mail:  usn_navy_sccc@navy.mil.
    b.  Marine Corps SCCC:  Comm:  (703) 784-9386, DSN:  278-9386 or e-mail:

9.  Released by the Honorable Thomas W. Harker, Acting Secretary of the 
Navy.//
