RMKS/1.  THE CHIEF OF NAVAL OPERATIONS (CNO) HAS APPROVED THE 
ELIMINATION OF THE RESERVE COMPONENT (RC) CRYPTOLOGIC TECHNICIAN

RATING ELIMINATION APPLIES TO THE SELECTED RESERVE (SELRES) ONLY AND 
DOES NOT AFFECT CTM SAILORS IN THE ACTIVE COMPONENT OR INDIVIDUAL READY 
RESERVE (IRR) (INCLUDING VOLUNTARY TRAINING UNITS). TECHNOLOGICAL 
ADVANCES, CRYPTOLOGIC SHORE STATION CLOSURES AND PROGRAM REALIGNMENTS

YIELDED NO REQUIREMENT FOR THE CTM RC.

2.  CTM SAILORS IN ALL PAYGRADES WILL BE OFFERED EXPANDED CONVERSION 
OPPORTUNITIES WITH EMPHASIS ON INFORMATION DOMINANCE CORPS RATINGS (AG, 
CT, IS, IT) TO CAPITALIZE ON RELATED SKILL EXPERIENCE AND EXISTING 
SECURITY CLEARANCES.  SAILORS NOT ELECTING TO CONVERT, TRANSFER TO THE 
IRR, OR RETIRE (IF ELIGIBLE) WILL BE SUBJECT TO FORCEDCONVERSION BASED 
ON NEEDS OF THE NAVY.  DEADLINE FOR SAILORS TO SUBMIT CONVERSION 
REQUESTS IS 1 JULY 2011 AND SHOULD BE SUBMITTED PER BUPERSINST 1001
