RMKS/1.  THIS NAVADMIN ANNOUNCES THE ANNUAL SPECIAL DUTY ASSIGNMENT PAY

BILLET REMAINS QUALIFIED TO FILL THE BILLET AND IS RECEIVING THE 
CORRECT AMOUNT OF SDAP.  RECERTIFICATION WILL BE COMPLETED BETWEEN 1 
JUNE AND 31 AUGUST 2008.  A COMPLETE LIST OF AUTHORIZED SKILLS AND PAY 
AMOUNTS CAN BE FOUND IN NAVADMIN 101/08.

THE FIRST HALF OF THE RECERTIFICATION WINDOW (1 JUNE THROUGH 15 JULY).
