Do You Still Need to Send the Above Zone Letter?

Posted on Updated on

The standard advice has always gone something like this:

“If you are above zone, you need to send a letter to the promotion board so that they know you are still trying to promote. Otherwise they won’t pick you.”

Now that they no longer stamp officer records with “AZ” (above zone) and they look exactly the same as those records that are in zone, do you still need to write a letter to the board? Has the standard advice changed?

Reasons to Send a Letter to a Promotion Board

I addressed this in a post from a few years ago entitled “Should You Send a Letter to the Promotion Board?” I still agree with just about everything in that post, except for this:

“…you should always send a letter to demonstrate interest in getting promoted when you are above zone.”

In my opinion, you no longer need to send a letter just because you are above zone. If you have another reason to send a letter, then please do. If you are just sending one because you think you have to, I think that is no longer necessary.

The FY18 O6 board convening order states on page 2:

“…in determining which officers are best and fully qualified for promotion, you are required to equally consider both above-zone and in-zone officers.”

What if You’re Not Sure?

As you might imagine, I get asked a lot whether someone should send a letter to the promotion board. This is my standard response…

Pretend that you did not send a letter to the board, the board is over, and you were not selected for promotion. Are you going to be kicking yourself for not sending the letter? If the answer is yes or maybe, then send the letter. As long as you keep it short and sweet, there is no real downside.

Frankly, I think that when officers send letters to promotion boards they are often just making themselves feel better, and there is nothing wrong with that. You want to make sure that when the promotion board results come out, no matter what happened, you feel like you did everything you could to get promoted.

The Bottom Line

If you are above zone and want to send the letter just so there is no regret, feel free, but it is definitely not required to be considered for promotion.

New Addition to the Promo Prep – Check Your Security Clearance

Posted on Updated on

During the last Specialty Leader Business Meeting, the Detailing Update mentioned that there were about 10 cases of officers who lost their promotion due to a security clearance issue. As a result, I added a new section to the Promo Prep document. In it you can find out how to check your security clearance. Here’s what I added:

Step 8 – Check Your Security Clearance

If your security clearance is expired, you won’t promote. To check on its status, go to blocks 92 and 93 of your Officer Data Card (ODC). Here is what mine says:

Block 92 – VV1015

Block 93 – 1115

What does this mean? The letters and dates in order are the level of clearance you are eligible for, the level of clearance you have, the date your investigation was initiated (MMYY format), and in block 93 the date your clearance was granted (MMYY format).

My first “V” means I am eligible for a “Top Secret – SCI Eligible” clearance. The second “V” means I actually have one. Here is a list of the various codes you might see:

The second date in block 93, “1115” in my case, is the important one. A Top Secret clearance is good for 6 years, so I should be good until NOV 2021. A Secret clearance, which is what most of you will have, is good for 10 years.

If your security clearance will expire within the next year or you have any questions about this, you should go to your security manager to renew it. Don’t let a promotion slip by because you had an expired clearance. It happens more than you would think.

How to Be Considered for Promotion if You’ve Been on Active Duty for Less Than 1 Year

Posted on

The FY19 promotion board NAVADMIN was recently released. If you are in-zone or above-zone for an upcoming promotion board but you’ve been on active duty for less than 1 year, you should read #5 from the NAVADMIN, which says:

5. In-zone and above-zone eligible officers in the grades of lieutenant, lieutenant commander, and commander, whose placement on the Active-Duty List is within one year of the convening dates of these boards, are automatically deferred unless they specifically request to be considered. The officer may waive this deferment and request consideration for promotion in a signed written letter, emailed to: NPC_Officer_SELBD_Elig_Waivers.fct (at) or mailed to:

Commander, Navy Personnel Command (PERS-802)
5720 Integrity Drive
Millington, TN 38055-0000

The request must be received by PERS-80 not later than 30 days prior to the convening date of the board.

What does this mean and why would it apply to you? Maybe you had prior service, you went to medical school, and now you’re a senior LT who is in-zone for LCDR right away. Maybe you did a civilian NADDS residency and you are in-zone right away for LCDR. There might be other situations that would put you in this position, like getting time-in-grade credit for a PhD.

If you believe you are in this position, here is what I’d do:

  1. Confirm you are in-zone or above-zone. How can you do this? The easiest way is to either read the Promo Prep or get the FY19 lineal list. Or you can use this document from PERS.
  2. If you wish to be considered for promotion to LCDR, CDR, or CAPT, so what it says above. Send the letter simply requesting this. You can find templates or letters to the board here or here. It can probably be a very short letter. There is no need to be verbose.
  3. If you have questions, I’d contact Officer Promotions via phone at 1-866-U-ASK-NPC. Their webpage is here.

NAVADMIN 297/17 – Notice of Convening of FY-19 Navy Active-Duty Promotion Selection Boards

Posted on Updated on

This NAVADMIN formally announces the promotion boards and sets the zones. My post a few days ago, though, is points you to the lineal list, which is the easiest way to figure out where you are in relation to the zones.

The promotion boards of note are:

  • 6 FEB 2018 – Staff Corps Captain
  • 27 MAR 2018 – Staff Corps Commander
  • 15 MAY 2018 – Staff Corps Lieutenant Commander

It also contains the instructions for communicating with the promotion boards, and all communication is now due 10 days before the boards start.

Early Separation Policy NAVADMIN Cancellations

Posted on Updated on

The NAVADMIN is below and here if you want to read it, but what is the short story? The Navy is growing, and they’re not going to let you out early anymore. In other words, if you want to RETIRE (not resign) as a CDR or CAPT, you are going to have to serve your full 3 years in that rank before they’ll let you out. You can read more details in this post.

R 131504Z DEC 17





RMKS/1.  References (a) and (b) are cancelled.

2.  We are in a growing Navy.  This requires more people, at a time when we 
are still working our way back to desired sea duty manning levels, and when 
the competition for talent is especially keen.  We will certainly recruit and 
train many more Sailors to help meet these demands, but that will not be 

3.  Retention of every capable Sailor will be critical to the operational 
readiness of the Navy.  Therefore all early out programs and minimum service 
requirement waiver programs are cancelled.  Service commitments such as 
enlistment contracts, service obligations for accepting promotions, bonuses, 
education, etc., are expected to be fulfilled.

4.  Service members experiencing difficulty in fulfilling obligated service 
requirements are encouraged to work with their chains of command and 
detailers to examine available alternatives to complete their obligation, to 
include reassignments to other duties for humanitarian reasons, in line with 
reference (c).

5.  It has been decades since the last period of major personnel growth in 
our Navy.  You will see many additional policy changes in the coming weeks 
and months to set us on the right course.  However, the most important tool 
we have is deckplate leadership and its ability to influence retention.  The 
Navy is counting on each of you.

How to Get Considered for Promotion to LCDR Right Away if You are a LT/Intern With Prior Service

Posted on

Normally you are not looked at for promotion until you’ve been on active duty for 1 year, but you can ask for this deferment to be waived.  This would be most applicable to any new interns who have prior service and would like to be looked at for promotion to LCDR in the FY19 promotion board that meets in May 2018.

If this is of interest to you, here is how you request a waiver:

  • Submit a waiver of deferment to have your record reviewed by the FY­19 O4 Staff selection board that is scheduled to convene 15 May 2018.
  • In December 2017, there will be a NAVADMIN published (NOTICE OF CONVENING FY­19 NAVY ACTIVE­DUTY PROMOTION SELECTION BOARDS).  This message will provide the eligible zones for paygrades O3 through O6 by competitive category.  Within the message, normally paragraph 5, states, “In­-zone and above­zone eligible officers in the grades of lieutenant, lieutenant commander, and commander, whose placement on the Active­ Duty List is within one year of the convening dates of these boards, are automatically deferred unless they specifically request to be considered. The officer may waive this deferment and request consideration for promotion, in writing, to: Commander, Navy Personnel Command (PERS­-802), 5720 Integrity Drive, Millington, TN 38055­0000. The request must be received by PERS­-802 not later than 30 days prior to the convening date of the board. All officers are reminded it is their responsibility to ensure their personnel records are substantially accurate and complete.”
  • There is no standard format for the letter.  You just need to ensure you clearly identify yourself, state that you wish to waive your deferment for the specific board, and sign the request.
  • PERS would prefer not to receive the letter requesting deferment until after the Notice of Convening message is released.
