proper  separation  of  officer  personnel.  The  procedure sheet/checklist  is  contained  in  the  Officer  Transfer Manual, NAVPERS 15559, appendix A. ORDERS FOR SEPARATION Separation orders for officers will be final orders and are issued only by CHNAVPERS or SECNAV. Specific  types  of  orders  maybe  issued  in  the  field,  but only   with   authorization   from   CHNAVPERS   or SECNAV. Final  endorsements  are  required  for  officer separations.  Commands  must  use  Officer  Separation Orders  (Final  Endorsement),  NAVPERS  1920/14,  for officer  separation  orders.  This  form  is  designed  to account  for  most  situations  involved  in  separating  an officer. Should a situation occur that is not indicated on NAVPERS 1920/14, commands may use block 49 of NAVCOMPT   3067,   Detaching   (Departing) Endorsement to Orders - (Officer - Enlisted) (OCR), to annotate a paragraph that should apply to the situation. When block 49 of NAVCOMPT 3067 is used, make sure a   copy   of   the   NAVCOMPT   3067   is   attached   to NAVPERS  1920/14. DISCHARGE CERTIFICATES Officers who have been totally separated from the naval  service,  with  certain  infrequent  exceptions,  are entitled  to  one  of  the  following  types  of  discharge certificates: .  Honorable . General .   Discharge   Under   Conditions   Other   Than Honorable Officers separated from the service by dismissal pursuant to sentence of general court-martial should not be awarded a certificate of any of the types of discharges listed  previously.  Their  only  separation  document should be a letter signed by SECNAV, or by an authority to whom SECNAV has lawfully delegated the function, informing  the  officer  concerned  of  his  or  her  trial, conviction, sentence, departmental action upon and approval of the sentence, and fact of dismissal. This is the lowest type of separation from the naval service. It is   now   officially   in   all   respects   equivalent   to   a dishonorable  discharge. The  foregoing  certificates  are  issued  by  the  Navy Department only. Under no circumstances should a ship or station issue any form of certificate of discharge to a member separated from the service as a warrant or commissioned   officer. ENLISTED SEPARATIONS The policy of the Navy is to promote readiness by maintaining  high  standards  of  conduct  and performance. To maintain high standards of conduct and performance  it  is  necessary  to  provide,  in  a  variety  of circumstances,  for  the  orderly  and  expeditious administrative separation of naval personnel. There are several reasons for this: namely, to make sure the Navy is served by individuals capable of meeting required standards  of  duty,  performance,  and  discipline;  to maintain standards of performance and conduct through appropriate separation and characterization of service that  emphasizes  the  traditional  concept  of  honorable military service; and to achieve authorized force levels and grade distributions. In  general,  some  of  the  formal  reasons  for separation  of  enlisted  personnel  are  discussed  in  the following  paragraphs.  Procedures,  additional  reasons covering defective enlistments and inductions, entry level   performance   and   conduct,   unsatisfactory performance, misconduct, drug abuse and rehabilitation failure, and alcohol abuse and rehabilitation failure are discussed in detail in the MILPERSMAN. SELECTED CHANGES IN SERVICE OBLIGATION CHNAVPERS   may   authorize   or   direct   the separation of enlisted personnel due to selected changes in  service  obligation.  Some  of  these  changes  might involve  general  demobilization,  reduction  in  authorized strength, or an order applicable to all members of a class of personnel specified in the order. Other changes might involve the acceptance of an active duty commission or permanent appointment or acceptance into a program leading to an active duty commission or appointment in any branch of the armed forces. Another change might involve  immediate  enlistment  or  reenlistment. EXPIRATION OF ENLISTMENT, FULFILLMENT OF SERVICE OBLIGATION, OR EXPIRATION OF TOUR OF ACTIVE SERVICE Unless  voluntarily  or  involuntarily  retained  beyond normal expiration of term of service as provided in the MILPERSMAN  or  applicable  directives  issued  by SECNAV  or  CHNAVPERS,  enlisted  and  inducted members of the Regular Navy or Naval Reserve are 12-7
