separated  or  released  from  inactive  duty  at  certain  times. These  include  the  following: l Upon normal date of expiration of enlistment, extension of enlistment, or period of induction, provided the  member  does  not  have  an  additional  service obligation .  At  the  fulfillment  of  service  obligation  acquired under  the  provisions  of  the  Military  Selective  Service Act,  provided  no  portion  of  the  contractual  enlistment or extension thereof remains to be served .   At   the   completion   of   the   period   of   active obligated service or period of such service as voluntarily or  involuntarily  extended . Within 30 days of the normal date of expiration of enlistment, extension of enlistment, fullfillment of service obligation acquired under the provisions of the Military  Selected  Service  Act,  or  normal  date  of completion  of  period  of  active  obligated  service FOR CONVENIENCE OF THE GOVERNMENT CHNAVPERS   may   authorize   or   direct   the separation of enlisted or inducted members before the expiration  of  enlistment  or  other  obligated  service  for any one of the reasons listed as follows: .  Some  Navy  personnel  and  their  families  will encounter hardships. Upon the request of the member and  concurrence  of  CHNAVPERS,  separation  may  be directed  when  genuine  hardship  exists.  The  criteria  and format for a request for hardship discharge we contained in the MILPERSMAN. A written request for a separation hardship should be  addressed  to  the  appropriate  special  court-martial convening  authority  (SPCMCA).  In  unusual circumstances, members in an authorized leave status may  submit  requests  for  dependency  of  hardship discharge.  To  expedite  the  procedure,  the  nearest  naval activity should submit a properly prepared request to the appropriate SPCMCA with the assisting command’s synopsis  included  in  its  endorsement.  All  requests  must be   accompanied   by   affidavits   substantiating   the hardship claim. Where practical, one affidavit should be submitted  from  the  family  member(s)  concerned.  The preparing  activity  should  immediately  inform  the member’s parent command of the pending request and ask for a leave extension, if orders as delineated in the Enlisted  Transfer  Manual,  NAVPERS  15909D,  chapter 18, may be used. .  A  member  who  is  unable  to  perform  duties assigned,   who   is   repetitively   absent,   or   who   is unavailable  for  worldwide  assignment  or  deployment due  to  parenthood  may  be  separated  under  this provision. . A member maybe separated within 3 months of the expiration of enlistment to attend an instruction of higher  education,  college,  university,  vocational,  or technical  school.  The  Deputy  CHNAVPERS  is  the separation  approving  authority  and  not  the  member’s CO. l A member, on active duty or inactive duty, may not be separated on the basis of pregnancy or childbirth unless it is determined to be in the best interest of the service   member   or   if   the   member   demonstrates overriding  and  compelling  factors  of  personal  need  that warrant  separation. Additional  reasons  such  as  conscientious  objection, surviving son or daughter, failure to meet physical readiness standards (obesity/physical readiness test [PRT]),  and  other  designated  physical  or  mental conditions are discussed in the MILPERSMAN. PHYSICAL DISABILITY A member not physically qualified by reason of physical  disability  means  that  a  member  is  unable  to perform the duties of his or her rate in such a manner as to  reasonably  fulfill  the  purpose  of  the  member’s employment  on  active  duty. Members on inactive duty may be separated by reason  of  physical  disability  upon  determination  that they are not physically qualified to perform the duties of their rating on active duty in the Naval Reserve by reason of disease or injury. Members who have been found to be physically not qualified  for  active  duty  or  retention  in  the  Naval Reserve should not be involuntary discharged upon the expiration  of  their  enlistment,  or  enlistment  as  extended, until the action pertaining to the resolution of their physical  status  is  completed.  When  the  members’ enlistment,  or  extension  of  enlistment,  expires  before their  physical  status  is  resolved,  members  may  be administratively retained in the service beyond the expiration date with their consent. If a member does not consent to the retention, the member’s discharge should be executed in the normal manner and an entry made on the Administrative Remarks page of the service record denoting the member’s desire to be discharged in lieu of retention as herein authorized. 12-8
