SUBJ/FY-06 EARLY TRANSITION PROGRAM//



GENTEXT/REMARKS/1.  CONTINUED HIGH REENLISTMENT RATES, LOW
ATTRITION, AND SUCCESSFUL RECRUITING EFFORTS ENABLE EXTENSION OF
EARLY SEPARATION OPPORTUNITIES TO SAILORS WHO MEET CERTAIN
ELIGIBILITY REQUIREMENTS.  PARTICULAR ATTENTION SHOULD BE PAID TO
COMMAND RESPONSIBILITY FOR ENCOURAGING AFFILIATION WITH THE NAVY
RESERVE FOR THOSE QUALIFIED SAILORS WHO HAVE DECIDED TO TRANSITION
FROM THE ACTIVE COMPONENT.
2.  THE FY-06 EARLY TRANSITION PROGRAM IS A VOLUNTARY PROGRAM AND
APPLIES TO QUALIFIED ACTIVE DUTY ENLISTED SAILORS INCLUDING UNITED
STATES NAVY, UNITED STATES NAVY RESERVE, FULL TIME SUPPORT, AND
CANVASSER RECRUITERS.  SELECTED RESERVE SAILORS (INCLUDING MOBILIZED
RESERVISTS) ARE NOT AFFECTED BY THIS NAVADMIN.
3.  COMMANDING OFFICERS (COS) CURRENTLY HAVE AUTHORITY TO GRANT
EARLY SEPARATION OF UP TO 90 DAYS FOR REASONS LISTED IN MILITARY
PERSONNEL MANUAL (MILPERSMAN) ARTICLE 1910-100.  THIS NAVADMIN DOES

THEIR CO.  REQUESTED SEPARATION DATE UNDER THIS PROGRAM MUST BE NO

NOT FORWARD TO COMNAVPERSCOM (PERS-4832) ANY REQUESTS THEY DEEM
UNSUPPORTABLE.  ALSO, DO NOT FORWARD ANY EARLY OUT REQUESTS THAT
REQUIRE ZERO MONTHS GAP FOR RELIEF.  FINAL APPROVAL AUTHORITY (FOR

CODES (NEC) MANNING OF THEIR UNIT, INBOUND RELIEFS, PROJECTED
OPERATIONAL AND FLEET RESPONSE PLAN SCHEDULE, ETC., IN DETERMINING
WHETHER TO FORWARD A MEMBER'S REQUEST TO COMNAVPERSCOM (PERS-4832).
COMMANDS RECOMMENDING APPROVAL OF EARLY SEPARATION SHOULD NOT EXPECT
A RELIEF UNTIL THE SAILOR'S ORIGINAL EAOS OR PROJECTED ROTATION
DATE, WHICHEVER IS EARLIER.  CONTACT APPROPRIATE RATING DETAILER TO
DETERMINE RELIEF AVAILABILITY.
6.  AS THIS IS AN EARLY RELEASE POLICY, COMMANDING OFFICERS MAY
GRANT SEPARATION LEAVE.  PERMISSIVE TEMPORARY DUTY (PTDY) AND

SEPARATION PROGRAM.

STOP-LOSS IS LIFTED.
9.  EXTENSIONS.  SAILORS WITH EXTENSION AGREEMENTS THAT BECOME
OPERATIVE PRIOR TO 30 SEP 06 MAY REQUEST EARLY SEPARATION UNDER THIS
PROGRAM IN CONJUNCTION WITH A REQUEST TO CANCEL THE EXTENSION.  THE
