service records, you may have come across the OCR
form. If assigned to a ship, you may see the OCR forms
replaced in the near future by a computer-generated
form. Most likely you will use a computer system
similar to the SDS used at the PERSUPPDETs to
prepare this form.
You must be familiar with all
versions of the NAVPERS 1070/606the OCR
version, the SDS version, and the computer-generated
version that may be used aboard your ship.
On the subject of UA, lets take a moment to discuss
the requirement for making up lost time, computing lost
time, determining the pay entry base date (PEBD),
active duty service date (ADSD), and expiration of
active obligated service (EAOS) adjustment.
Making up Lost Time
According to the MILPERSMAN, Article 3640450,
under Title 10, United States Code (U.S.C.) Section
972, enlisted members of the Regular Navy and Naval
Reserve who are otherwise eligible to separate from
active duty, and who have lost time from their current
enlistment or other current period of obligated service,
are required to make up the lost time day-for-day before
they separate. Individuals can have lost time as a result
of UA, confinement (CONF), nonperformance of duty
(civil arrest), or sickness resulting from misconduct
(SKMC), and so forth.
The requirement to makeup lost time does not apply
to fleet reservists, retired personnel, or members placed
on appellate leave awaiting review of court-martial.
There are other members who are not required to make
up lost time as indicated in MILPERSMAN, Article
Computing Lost Time
Lost time that must be made up is computed on a
day-for-day basis. In accounting for periods of absence
from duty, count the first day of the absence as a day of
absence from duty and the day of return to duty as a day
of duty. When one type of lost time ends on the same
day that a second type of lost time begins, count that day
as the first day of the second type of lost time.
If a member, while on UA, is apprehended and
convicted by civil authority and is then returned to
military control on the day released by civil authority,
count the day on which the member was apprehended
as a day of nonperformance of duty (civil arrest). If the
absentee does not return to military control on the day
he or she is released by civil authority, count the entire
period of absence from duty as UA without interruption
by the civil arrest.
A member whose absence from duty continues
beyond expiration of enlistment or other period of
obligated service makes up only the time actually lost
from the enlistment or other period of obligated service.
The proper method of computing the lost time that
must be made good is illustrated by the examples at the
end of this paragraph. In each of the eight examples,
the lost time is computed according to the
MILPERSMAN, Article 3640450. Use this method to
determine and compute time lost by enlisted personnel
for cumulative service for retirement and for transfer to
the Fleet Reserve (FLTRES), and by officers and
enlisted personnel for determining entitlement to leave.
All the following examples are for the same calendar
Members UA commenced at 0800, on 9 March,
and ended at 0800, on 10 March (24 hours).
There is no deductible time, as UA did not
exceed 24 hours.
Members UA commenced at 0800, on 28
February (not a leap year), and ended at 0830,
on 1 March (24 hours and 30 minutes). UA is
equal to 1 day (28 February).

and ended at 0015, on 3 June (24 hours and 30
