Keep  the  Commanding  Officer,  Naval  Reserve Personnel Center informed of member’s current address Inform the Commanding Officer, Naval Reserve Personnel Center if the member plans to reside outside of CONUS in excess of 30 days Promptly  answer  all  official  correspondence Make known to proper authority any change in health  that  may  prevent  the  member  from performing active duty Subject himself or herself to all laws, regulations, and  orders  governing  the  Navy Perform no more than 2 months’ active duty each r-year period so ordered Be physically examined at least once every 4 years Once  in  the  Fleet  Reserve,  you  are  entitled  to medical and dental care. Although excluded from dental care, except in remote areas, your dependents are also entitled  to  medical  care.  Fleet  reservists  are  eligible  for hospitalization in a Department of Veterans Affairs (DVA)  hospital. Members of the Fleet Reserve are subject to the Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ) and may not be discharged without their consent, except by sentence of  a  court-martial. ADMINISTRATIVE  SEPARATION (DISCHARGE) The Navy separation policy strengthens the concept that military service is a calling different from any civilian occupation. Enlisting in the Navy involves a commitment to the United States, to one’s service, and to  one’s  fellow  citizens  and  service  members  that  one will complete successfully a period of obligated service. Early  separation  for  failure  to  meet  required  standards of performance or discipline violates that commitment. When persons enter the naval service, the Navy invests  substantial  resources  in  their  training, equipment, and related expenses. Separation before completion of a period of obligated service represents a loss  of  that  investment  while  requiring  increased accessions. Conversely, retaining individuals in the naval service who will not or cannot conform to naval standards  of  conduct,  discipline,  and  performance creates  a  high  cost  in  terms  of  pay,  administrative  efforts, degradation   of   morale,   and   substandard   mission performance.  Both  situations  represent  an  inefficient use  of  limited  defense  resources.  Therefore,  every reasonable effort must be made to identify in a timely manner members who exhibit a likelihood for early separation  and  either  improve  those  members’  chances of   retention   through   counseling,   retraining,   and rehabilitation, or separate promptly those members who do  not  demonstrate  potential  for  further  usefud  naval service. Administrative  processing  is  mandatory  for members  involved  in  homosexuality,  drug  trafficking, one incident of drugs for E-4 and above, commission of a  serious  offense  involving  sexual  perversion,  and felony  convictions  or  a  conviction  for  a  felonious offense. If a member is sentenced by a civil court to more than 6 months’ confinement, regardless of suspension or probation,  the  command  should  consider  processing  for separation. The MILPERSMAN, NAVPERS 15560C, lists the formal bases for separation and reasons for processing for administrative separation. NOTIFICATION PROCEDURES When   commands   process   personnel   for administrative  separations/discharge,  strict  compliance with the policies and procedures set out in the articles in the  MILPERSMAN  are  mandatory  to  guarantee  speedy processing,  safeguarding  of  the  member’s  rights,  and avoidance  of  future  litigation.  One  of  the  primary reasons  for  delays  in  directing  final  action  on administrative  separations  (discharges)  is  the  failure  of commands to process a case properly. Unfamiliarity with processing policies and procedures is a major factor in delayed and drawn-out cases. Members should be processed for all reasons for which they qualify. When preparing an administrative separation, the CO  must  give  the  member  a  letter  of  notification procedure.  (See  the  MILPERSMAN  for  the  correct format.)  If  any  reason  for  separation,  set  forth  in  the Notice  of  Notification  Procedure  Proposed  Action, requires processing under the administrative board procedure, the entire matter should be processed under that procedure. (See the MILPERSMAN for guidance.) When  processing  a  member  for  administrative separation, there are three very important procedural requirements  that  must  be  followed: Notice. The member should be notified in writing of the basis for administrative processing by his or her CO. 12-10
