Description of Subspecialty Codes
Useful Information for Newly Commissioned Officers
Flight and Submarine Training
officer. Since having a subspecialty means you are an “expert” in a particular field, it gives you an edge. YOUR DUTY PREFERENCES The needs of the Navy come first in deciding your duty  assignments,  but  the  Navy  does  consider  your personal preferences. Therefore, you must submit an Officer   Preference   and   Personal   Information   Card (NAVPERS 1301/1) to keep your detailer informed of your  duty  preferences.  You  must  submit  a  new  card when   your   preferences   or   personal   information changes.  For  example,  you  may  change  your  mind about attending postgraduate school or the next duty station you prefer. You may also experience changes in your personal life, such as your current residence, the  members  of  your  household,  or  your  marital  or dependency status.  Do not  submit a card reading “No Change.” Make  realistic  choices  of  duty  and  duty  stations on  your  preference  card.  Each  year  the  Bureau  of Naval   Personnel   (BUPERS)   issues   the   Biennial Officer   Billet   Summary   (Junior   Officer   Edition), NAVPERS  15994.  This  summary  provides  officers with a ready reference of billets relative to geographic location,  required  designator  and  rank,  subspecialty, and primary duties. All ships and stations receive this publication.   Consult   the   Biennial   Officer   Billet Summary  (Junior Officer Edition) before you fill out your preference card. Your   detailer   works   on   your   transfer   several months   before   you   actually   receive   your   orders. Using your preference card, and again, based on the Navy’s   needs,   your   detailer   attempts   to   locate   an assignment  commensurate  with  your  preference  and one   that   will   “round   out”   your   experience   for promotion.  Your  detailer’s  recommendation  goes  to the placement desk with your name and qualification. If the placement desk accepts you, it notifies the order writing section. If the placement desk does not accept you, your detailer will start the process again. We   cannot   overemphasize   the   importance   of having  a  current  Officer  Preference  and  Personal Information  Card  in  your  record.  Unless  you  are  in frequent contact with your detailer, this card is usually the   only   way   your   detailer   knows   your   personal preferences,  particularly  if  you  desire  postgraduate school.   To   further   help   you   in   selecting   future assignments, the Chief of Naval Operations has made the   services   of   BUPERS   detailers   available   by telephone. To avoid the cost of commercial calls, you may   use   your   command’s   Defense   Switching Network  system  (DSN).  If  DSN  capabilities  are  not available, you may call your detailer collect. HOW FAST WILL YOU BE PROMOTED? According   to   current   promotional   policies,   the promotion  cycle  for  most  officers  will  approximate the   cumulative   commissioned   time   (flow   points) normally  expected  for  promotions,  as  listed  below. Selection boards for promotion review particular year groups based on the projected needs of the Navy to fill billets. Previous manning decisions affect promotion opportunities many years after they are made. These flow  points  may  also  vary  from  one  community  to another. The   minimum   time-in-grade   requirements   are shown as follows: ENS to LTJG.   .   .   .   .   .   .   .   .   .   .   24   months LTJG to LT    .   .   .   .   .   .   .   .   .   .   .   48  months LT to LCDR  .   .   .   .   .   .   .   .   .   .   .   9-11  years LCDR to CDR.   .   .   .   .   .   .   .   .   .   15-17 years CDR to CAPT .   .   .   .   .   .   .   .   .   .   21-23 years HOW MUCH WILL YOU BE PAID? Your pay, of course, is a matter of vital interest to you.  Your  regular  military  compensation  consists  of the   four   elements   of   pay   received   by   all   service personnel: basic  pay,  basic  allowance  for  quarters, basic allowance for subsistence, and the tax advantage generated  by  these  tax-free  allowances.  Additionally, you might qualify for special pay, incentive pay, and a variable housing allowance (VHA). Part  of  your  total  compensation  package  is  your fringe benefits. You should assess the value of these benefits on a personal basis. These benefits include, but are not limited to, the following: Retirement Medical/dental care Commissary/exchange facilities Recreation/club facilities Survivor benefits Leave 1-5
