RMKS/1. Sailor 2025, a living breathing set of approximately 45 initiatives,
demonstrates the commitment of the Navy to recruiting and retaining the force
of tomorrow. While our goal is to retain and reward the best and brightest
of the Navy, not every high performing Sailor chooses to stay Navy. This
NAVADMIN announces the development of one of the Sailor 2025 initiatives
titled Targeted Reentry Program (TRP) which is designed to streamline the
process to bring back highly talented Sailors.
2. TRP overview. TRP empowers commanding officers (CO) to identify Active
Component (AC) and Full Time Support (FTS) officer and enlisted personnel who
have elected to leave active-duty (AD) service and do not desire to affiliate
with the Ready Reserve and recommend them to be awarded a Golden Ticket or
Silver Ticket. TRP is designed to benefit both the Sailor and the Navy by
allowing continued service of well-trained leaders who possess valuable and
needed skills. Golden Ticket recipients are guaranteed return to AD (AC/FTS)
within 1 year of release, as long as they remain fully qualified in line with
references (a) through (e). Silver Ticket recipients are provided the
opportunity to return to AD within 2 years of release, subject to the needs
of the Navy, provided they remain fully qualified in line with references (a)
through (e). Golden Tickets not used within the first year become Silver
Tickets for the second year. If not used within 2 years of release from AD,
Silver Tickets expire.
3. Status and Participation Criteria while in TRP. Members who are selected
and accept a TRP ticket will be transferred to a minimum Reserve status known
as Standby Reserve-Inactive (USNR-S2) for up to 2 years upon release from AD.
In USNR-S2 status, members are subject to minimal participation requirements
in the Navy Reserve thereby enhancing the ability of the member to engage in
desired civilian pursuits. USNR-S2 members will not train with the Reserves
for pay or retirement points, compete for promotion/advancement nor accrue
qualifying years towards non-regular retirement eligibility. USNR-S2 members
are not entitled to Tricare Reserve Select or Service members Group Life
4. TRP Eligibility:
a. Officers: AD officers in paygrades O-3 and O-4 who have completed
their Minimum Service Requirement, but have not yet reached 14 years of
active service are eligible for TRP consideration. Officers must have
attained community qualifications, demonstrated sustained superior
performance in their Fitness Reports, and passed their most recent Physical
Fitness Assessment (PFA). Officers who have failed to select for promotion
are not eligible. Additionally, prospective participants must meet character
standards (i.e., no record of civil arrest/non-judicial punishment, courts-
martial, failed drug screening, etc.). Officers who do not meet and maintain
retention standards in line with references (a) through (e) will not be
eligible to return to AD under the TRP.
b. Enlisted: AD enlisted personnel in paygrades E-4 to E-6 who have
completed their Expiration of Active Obligated Service (EAOS), but have not
reached 14 years of active service are eligible for consideration in TRP.
Sailors must have attained community qualifications, demonstrated sustained
superior performance in their Evaluation Reports, and passed their most
recent PFA. Additionally, prospective participants must meet character
standards (i.e., no record of civil arrest/NJP, courts-martial, failed drug
screening, etc.). Sailors who do not meet and maintain retention standards
in line with references (a) through (e) will not be eligible to return to AD
under the TRP.
5. TRP Ticket Request and Issuance Process:
a. Officers: When an officer submits a voluntary resignation request in
line with reference (g), COs may recommend high performing officers who meet
TRP criteria for a Golden or Silver Ticket in their endorsement of the
resignation request, and forward it to the Officer Community Management
Division (BUPERS-3) via the Officer Community Manager. Golden Tickets will
be issued during each fiscal year based on community health and target
retention goals. There is no limit to the number of Silver Tickets that may
be awarded. BUPERS-3 will adjudicate each request based on the program
criteria, endorsement of the CO, and needs of the Navy. Once a determination
is made, BUPERS-3 will send a notification letter to inform the command of
the disposition of the request, and COs will notify their officers.
b. Enlisted: Upon notification of the intent of the Sailor to separate,
COs will recommend high performing enlisted personnel who meet the TRP
criteria, via the command career counselor in Career Waypoints (C-WAY) for
consideration. BUPERS-3 will approve Golden Tickets via C-WAY each fiscal
year, based on community health and target retention goals. There is no
limit to the number of Silver Tickets that may be awarded. Once a
determination is made, BUPERS-3 will notify the command via C-WAY. COs will
notify their enlisted personnel.
c. BUPERS-3 is the approving authority for all TRP ticket requests (both
Golden and Silver Tickets) and will make determinations based on the overall
performance of the member, community health, and needs of the Navy.
d. Once approved for a Golden or Silver Ticket, officers and enlisted
personnel will have the option to accept or reject participation in the TRP
prior to their release from AD.
e. Commander, Navy Personnel Command will transition TRP participants
from AD to the USNR-S2 for a period not to exceed 2 years from release from
AD, with minimal participation requirements in the Reserves, and a
streamlined return to AD.
f. Date of Rank (DOR) of officers and Time in Rate (TIR) of enlisted
personnel participating in TRP will be adjusted upon return of participant to
AD. DOR adjustment for officers will be made in line with references (h) and
(i), and TIR adjustments for enlisted personnel will be made in the manner of
Individual Ready Reserve (IRR) adjustments as delineated in reference (j).
Sailors who return to active duty using TRP will maintain the last rating and
paygrade held at the time of separation.
6. For officer and enlisted personnel who have resignations or C-WAY
requests submitted at the time of release of this NAVADMIN, the following
a. Officers: Officers who have pending resignation requests dated on or
after 1 October 2017, but have not yet been adjudicated are eligible for TRP
consideration. Requests must be made by the CO through positive endorsement
and sent to BUPERS-3 for review and adjudication.
b. Enlisted: Enlisted personnel who are in Intends to Separate (ITS)
status in all C-WAY looks on/after 1 April 2018 and have a soft
EAOS/Extensions of January 2019 and later are eligible for TRP consideration.
Requests must be made by the CO through positive endorsement via C-WAY for
review and adjudication.
7. Return to AD Process. Valid TRP participants will initiate return to AD
by contacting the Reserve Personnel Management Division (PERS-9).
8. In order to meet the requirements of reference (k), nuclear trained
personnel requests for TRP tickets shall be routed through Nuclear Program
Manager (OPNAV N133) prior to adjudication by BUPERS-3. Requests by nuclear
trained personnel to redeem a TRP ticket and return to AD must be validated
by OPNAV N133 prior to action by PERS-9.
