permanent duty station. If retention is authorized, the member  will  be  issued  TEMADD  orders  or  an endorsement  of  his  or  her  present  orders  that  will include  the  statement  concerning  no  cost  to  the government.  This  period  of  TEMADD  may  not exceed 15 days. Reassignment of Member at Expiration of TD HUMS Members  on  TD  HUMS  will  be  considered  for reassignment   approximately   1   month   before   the scheduled  completion  of  their  temporary  assignment. Six weeks before the member’s PRD, activities with such  members  on  board  should  interview  the  member to  determine  if  the  hardship  has  been  resolved  before submitting an availability report according to chapter 20 of the ENLTRANSMAN to the ACA who assigned the TD HUMS. OVERSEAS  ASSIGNMENT Overseas  service  is  defined  as  military  duty performed  while  assigned  to  a  military  installation  or activity  permanently  based  outside  the  48  contiguous United States. Overseas service may be categorized as the following kinds of duty: Preferred overseas shore duty (SSC 6) Overseas shore duty (SSC 3) Nonrotated sea duty (SSC 4) Neutral duty (SSC 5) Partial  sea  duty  (SSC  7) To enable the foreign nationals to adjust to the U.S. culture and language, it is the Navy policy not to assign non-U.S. citizens overseas during their first term of enlistment (type duty 3, 6, and 7 with the exception of Hawaii, Alaska, and Puerto Rico). Overseas tour lengths have been established by the Department of Defense (DOD) for all overseas areas where  Navy  personnel  are  stationed  and  generally reflect the desirability y of duty in the area. Section 671, Title 10,  United  States  Code  (U.  S.  C.)  states:  “No member of an armed forces may be assigned to active duty on land outside the United States and its Territories and Possessions, until he or she has completed basic training  requirements  of  the  service  he  or  she  is  a member of.” It has been determined that it is also the intent of Congress that no service member should be assigned to any unit in a combat zone with less than 12 weeks of basic training. Overseas   tour   lengths   are   prescribed   in   the ENLTRANSMAN, chapter 4, and are categorized as accompanied,  all  others,  and  involuntary. The responsibility for determining suitability for overseas service rests with the CO of the transferring command. The CO must make sure the member or dependents   do   not   possess   any   performance, disciplinary, financial, psychological, medical, or other physical  attributes  that  would  prevent  them  from conducting  themselves  as  worthy  representatives  of  the United States in a foreign country. This determination must be based on a series of steps beginning with the following: 1.The detailer at BUPERS/EPMAC nominates the member  for  overseas  duty. 2.   A   suitability   screening   is   conducted   that includes a review of the member’s service records, a urinalysis  screening,  a  check  of  physical  readiness status, a check of medical and dental fitness and service school environments, and a face-to-face interview with the  CO  of  the  transferring  command,  the  service member,  and  dependents. 3. Finally, the CO forwards a message/NAVGRAM to BUPERS indicating the suitability of the member and dependents  for  overseas  duty. Overseas  screening  is  a  requirement  of  all transferring  commands  whether  transfer  is  from CONUS to overseas or consecutive overseas tours from overseas  (sea/shore)  to  overseas  (sea/shore).  The  Report of  Suitability  for  Overseas  Assignment,  NAVPERS 1300/16,  Part  III  (fig.  3-2),  must  be  completed  within 30 days after receipt of orders. Figure 3-3 is a mandatory checklist  for  overseas  transfers. RETENTION To achieve the goals set by the CNO in the Navy Retention  Program,  OPNAVINST  1040.6A,  one  of  the basic elements used in the Navy’s retention program is the  counseling  interview  system.  The  counseling interview  system  is  composed  of  five  required interviews. In this section we will discuss the required interviews, a tickler system to make sure all individuals are interviewed at the proper time, and methods used for documenting the completion of the interviews. 3-5
