Figure 3-4.—Enlisted Duty Preferences, NAVPERS 1306/63
Personnelman 3 & 2 - Military manual for government personnel administration
Humanitarian/Hardship Reassignments not Considered
Preparation  instructions  for  the  NAVPERS  1306/63 are  contained  in  chapters  2  and  25  of  the ENLTRANSMAN, NAVPERS 15909E. You will read about  some  other  forms  you  should  use  for  personnel requests in the following section. HUMANITARIAN REASSIGNMENT REQUESTS Detailing authorities are aware of the hardships that Navy  families  encounter  and  of  the  additional aggravation imposed by long absences of the service members   from   their   families.     Emergency   leave frequently   provides   sufficient   time   to   ease   such hardships. There are times, however, when individuals will need more time than leave can provide to resolve a hardship. In these cases, reassignment for humanitarian reasons  may  be  requested. If  time  is  an  important  factor  in  a  member’s hardship,  the  need  for  prompt  handling  is  evident.  COs can render assistance by setting up an internal screening process  to  decide  whether  a  request  for  humanitarian assignment  is  warranted.  This  screening  process, tailored  to  the  individual  command’s  size,  should evaluate  the  case,  provide  command  assistance  when needed,  and  recommend  required  action.  Individuals such as chaplains, doctors, senior officers, and petty officers should be involved in the screening process. When  a  request  for  humanitarian  assignment  is warranted, the preparation of the request must be screened  for  clarity,  accuracy,  and  comprehensiveness to  prevent  delays  in  administrative  processing. The   Humanitarian   Assignment/Hardship Discharge  section  of  BUPERS  (PERS  40HH)  controls humanitarian assignment requests within BUPERS. A board consisting of senior petty officers and officers considers all cases on an individual basis. The final decision  is  based  solely  on  the  information  and/or documentation submitted. It should be noted that a request  for  reassignment  is  not  disapproved  just because a member is needed in his or her assigned duties. BASIC  CRITERIA  FOR  DETERMINING HUMANITARIAN/HARDSHIP SITUATIONS A member’s request must show that the hardship meets  the  criteria  set  forth  in  chapter  18  of  the ENLTRANSMAN.  These  criteria  are  as  follows: · A   severe   hardship   exists,   not   normally encountered  and/or  resolved  by  other  members  of  the naval  service. · The hardship occurred or has been excessively aggravated since the service member has been serving on  active  duty. · The  problem  affects  the  service  member’s immediate  family. NOTE:  Immediate  family  is  defined  as  a spouse,   son,   daughter,   stepchild   (if   the stepchild is, in fact, dependent on the member), parent, brother, sister, stepparent, or other person acting in an  in loco parentis  status for a period of 5 years before the member became 21 years of age, or any bona fide dependent to the service member. In-laws are not considered members of the immediate family solely by virtue  of  their  relationship  as  in-laws. · There are no other family members or relatives capable of providing necessary assistance. · The member has made every reasonable effort to ease the hardship and it cannot be reasonably eased by leave  (including  emergency  leave  if  the  member  is overseas), correspondence, power of attorney, or by the intervention of professional people such as lawyers, counselors,  clergy,  and  doctors. · The member’s presence is required for specific reasons other than for morale or financial purposes alone. · The hardship is resolvable within a reasonable period. The member must show that his or her request meets all these criteria and not just one or two specific requirements.  In  addition  to  these  criteria,  the  board will  also  consider  special  circumstances. SPECIAL  CONSIDERATIONS Certain  circumstances,  involving  members  of  the applicant’s   family,   normally   warrant   special consideration  by  BUPERS  when  it  is  proved  that  the member’s presence in a specific area is essential to ease problems and it can be anticipated that the problem is solvable within a reasonable period. Some of these circumstances are as follows: · The death of the applicant’s spouse or child 3-12
