Deadline Moved for First-Term Sailors Looking to Extend Enlistment At Sea

U.S. Navy

WASHINGTON (NNS) -- The Navy announced Tuesday that first-term Sailors on sea duty now have more time to request extension of their expiration of active obligated service (EAOS) to complete their sea duty assignment known as their prescribed sea tour (PST).

The deadline for Sailors to submit their requests was extended to Dec. 31, 2017, from Feb. 28, as was first announced in NAVADMIN 004/17. This initiative allows first-term Sailors to match their projected rotation date (PRD) with their EAOS and helps alleviate unnecessary gaps at sea.

While the Navy has seen a positive response from Sailors thus far, extending the period that Sailors can apply for this opportunity will help continue to further minimize gaps at sea as the large FY13 enlisted cohort begins to leave sea duty.

Sailors who volunteer to extend will benefit from additional opportunities to advance and apply for reenlistment quotas.

For eligibility requirements, please read NAVADMIN 004/17.

Those eligible Sailors need to submit a NAVPERS 1306/7 form endorsed by their commanding officer to Navy Personnel Command. Non-nuclear Sailors send their forms to and nuclear Sailors send theirs to both before the Dec. 31, deadline to take advantage of this opportunity.
