  1. 1. NPC FORCM WEEKLY 5 - 9 August 2013 Career progression, community management, personnel matters, and general information from the desk of the Navy Personnel Command Force Master Chief, FORCM(SW/AW/EXW) Leland E. Moore “Anyone can hold the helm when the sea is calm.” ~ Publilius Syrus QUOTE OF THE WEEK TODAY IN NAVAL HISTORY August 5th 1864 - RADM David Farragut wins Battle of Mobile Bay, sealing off last Confederate port on the Gulf Coast. August 6th 1990 - President George Bush orders Operation Desert Shield, the largest overseas deployment since Vietnam. August 7th 1782 - Badge of Military Merit (Purple Heart) established. August 8th 1972 - Women authorized for sea duty as regular ship's company. August 9th 1865 - Return of Naval Academy to Annapolis after 4 years at Newport, RI. CONTINUUM OF SERVICE UPDATE When the FY 14 Chief Petty Officer results were published on BUPERS Online, the website received 12,129 hits. This amount of traffic bogged the site down making it difficult to navigate. Your patience is appreciated as we continue to pursue a solution. BUPERS ONLINE PERFORMANCE NAVADMIN 198/13 announces the update on Continuum of Service Initiatives. It details the processes for transitioning between the active component (AC) and reserve component (RC) in order to develop a "Continuum of Service" within the Navy. • AC to RC lane change: The Career Transition Office (CTO, PERS-97) provides counseling and support to active duty officer and enlisted Sailors considering a transition to RC. Two AC to RC processes are available for enlisted Sailors navigating a transition from AC to RC: 1) Career Waypoint-Reenlistment transition to Selected Reserve (SELRES) with Intermediate Stop (I-Stop) orders, and 2) SELRES Delayed Affiliation Program (SELRES DAP). Interested AC Service members may also contact a CTO representative by phone at (901) 874-4192 or via email at and • SELRES RC to AC/Full Time Support (FTS) lane changes: Provides opportunities for RC Sailors to meet active duty (AC and FTS) mission requirements. Three reserve-to-active duty transition programs are available: 1) Definite recall, 2) Indefinite recall (officer)/Augmentation (enlisted), and 3) SELRES to FTS. • Other flexible service options: Many service options do not involve changing lanes between AC and RC. These programs meet the adaptable requirements of both the Navy and Sailors: 1) Change of rate or designator, and 2) Career Intermission Pilot Program (CIPP). • Career Navigator Program and related SELRES enhancements. The Career Navigator Program was announced as part of a fundamental shift and important change to how we do business in enlisted career management. It put Sailors at the helm to navigate their careers, outlining two new enhancements for the SELRES community: Career Waypoint-Transition (formerly RC to AC augmentation) and Career Waypoint-Conversion (formerly RC to RC). • Questions concerning any of the options available to Sailors should be referred to the NPC customer service center, 1-866-U-ASK-NPC or 1-866-827-5672, or via email at The NPC customer service center is manned Monday - Friday, 0700 - 1900, Central Standard Time. Refer to NAVADMIN 198/13 for additional information and guidelines.
