Personnel Found Unsuitable for Overseas Assignment
high-operating  tempo  limits  access  to  adequate  medical and  dental  facilities.  For  this  reason,  personnel  being assigned  to  these  activities  require  a  complete  overseas screening. SELECTION OF PERSONNEL FOR OVERSEAS  SERVICE While  overseas,  service  members  and  their dependents  represent  the  United  States.  The  CO  of  the transferring  command  determines  suitability  of personnel   for   overseas   service.   The   CO   decides whether  the  member  or  dependents  possess  any performance,  disciplinary,  financial,  psychological, medical, or other physical attributes that would prevent them from conducting themselves as representatives of the United States in a foreign country. The  decision  on  suitability  begins  when  a  detailer at the Bureau of Naval Personnel (BUPERS) (PERS 40) or  Enlisted  Personnel  Management  Center  (EPMAC) nominates the member for overseas duty and ends with a message to BUPERS (PERS 40 and PERS 462) from the CO indicating the suitability of the member and dependents  for  overseas  duty.  In  the  case  of nondesignated  Seamen,  Airmen,  and  Firemen,  the message  is  addressed  to  EPMAC  with  an  information copy  to  BUPERS  (PERS  462). Suitability  screening  includes  a  review  of  the member’s service record and physical readiness status. It includes a check of the medical and dental fitness of the individual and his or her dependents. Screening also includes  a  command  review  to  determine  suitability.  In recruit  training  and  service  school  environments,  the training  school  command  is  responsible  for  scrutinizing the  training  records  of  personnel  and  interviewing personnel  to  determine  their  overall  suitability  for overseas  duty.  Other  suitability  factors  are  discussed later in the chapter. A face-to-face interview between the CO of the transferring command, the service member, and his or her  dependents,  if  any,  is  desirable.  If  this  is  not possible, the CO must make sure such an interview is conducted  by  an  experienced  and  knowledgeable representative. On  request  of  the  CO,  a  skilled interviewer  (such  as  a  chaplain,  command  career counselor, command master chief, Navy social worker, or specified family service center staff member) may also  be  included  to  determine  overseas  suitability.  In all cases, the CO must sign the Report of Suitability for Overseas  Assignment,  NAVPERS  1300/16.  This authority  cannot  be  delegated  except  to  an  officer “Acting”  or  to  OICs  of  isolated  detachments. SUITABILITY  DECISION  FACTORS The CO of the transferring command must make sure that the following factors are addressed and used as the basis for the overseas suitability decision: . Medical fitness l   Human   immuno   deficiency   virus   (HIV) screening .  Dependent  suitability,  which  includes  screening for  exceptional  family  members.  Refer  to  the  glossary contained in this training manual for a definition of exceptional  family  members. l l l l l l l l l l l Family  advocacy Dental  fitness Physical  fitness Drug-related  problems Alcohol-related   problems Psychiatric  disorders Performance Disciplinary  history Pregnancy, if applicable Financial  stability Individual  and  family  characteristics Dependents   should   be   screened   for   overseas assignment  even  if  the  member  elects  an unaccompanied  tour  of  duty.  This  screening  is conducted to make sure the member does not have the potential for early return from an overseas location because of an existing family problem. Also, in most locations,  the  member  may  elect  an  accompanied  tour within 90 days of arrival overseas. It is better to identify the  potential  problems  before  the  member  executes  the orders. OVERSEAS  SERVICE  SCREENING PROCEDURES As you know, the CO of the transferring command is responsible for the overseas screening. However, you,  as  the  PN,  will  conduct  the  actual  transfer interview, type the orders and/or endorsements, send the 11-5
