Posted on Updated on

Here are two good documents that explain the recent PCS/travel updates:

Here is a newsletter with an article on the restarting of promotion boards:

MyNavy Sailor to Sailor – JUNE 2020

In brief, it says:

  • Although the boards were postponed, those who are selected for promotion can expect to be assigned the original date of rank and receive any back pay and allowances they’re warranted.
  • Sailors’ Official Military Personnel Files will be reviewed as of the original board convening date and their eligibility will remain the same.
  • Deadlines for letters to the board remain the same as originally set, except for the Reserve E-7 Board, which had a deadline of May 18, 2020, to compensate for delays in their eligibility determination. The remaining deadlines remain the same to maintain a fair and impartial balance across the fleet, but Sailors are encouraged to submit a letter if they feel their eligibility is unclear.
  • Officer promotion boards require additional reviews and results are expected to be approved and announced 100 days after a board adjourns.
