REF/A/GENADMIN/CNO N1 WASHINGTON DC/161306ZJAN07//
NARR/REF A IS NAVADMIN 007/07, MOBILIZATION DEFERMENT POLICY FOR TRANSITION
FROM ACTIVE COMPONENT TO RESERVE COMPONENT.
REF B REF B IS TITLE 10 U.S. CODE SECTION 12302, READY RESERVE.
REF C IS THE NAVY RESERVE PERSONNEL MANUAL.//
RMKS/1. This NAVADMIN supersedes reference (a). Reference (b) authorizes
involuntary recall of any Reservist to active service, with consideration for
fair treatment. Reference (c) further promulgates mobilization deferment
2. Active Component (AC) and Reserve Component (RC) Sailors continue to
support global operational requirements with dedication and outstanding
service to the Fleet and Combatant Commanders.
3. In support of veterans who choose to affiliate with the Navy Reserve (as
drilling Reservists in a pay status), to allow for a reasonable transition
period, the following involuntary mobilization deferment policy is
implemented upon release of this NAVADMIN.
4. Program Guidance
a. All Navy Veteran (NAVET) and Other Service Veteran (OSVET) personnel,
to include those members of the Individual Ready Reserve, (Voluntary Training
Unit and Active Status Pool) who affiliate with the Navy Reserve qualify for
a 1-year deferment from involuntary mobilization, commencing on the Selected
Reserve affiliation date.
All NAVET and OSVET personnel who affiliate within 6 months (183 days) of
release from Active Duty qualify for a 2-year deferment from involuntary
mobilization, commencing on the Selected Reserve affiliation date. Members
qualify for one mobilization deferment, associated with their first Navy
b. Deferments are applicable under current operational tempo and apply
to all Sailors who affiliate through the NAVET or OSVET program (regardless
of previous deployment schedule, last duty station, Navy enlisted
classification held or designator). All direct Navy Reserve accessions, upon
transitioning to Selected Reserve status following initial training
period(s), remain ineligible for deferment.
c. Upon transitioning, the Sailors gaining Navy Operational Support
Center (NOSC) will ensure a Manpower Availability Status (MAS) code of AS1
(for a 1-year deferment) or TS1 (for a 2-year deferment) is entered into the
Navy Standard Integrated Personnel System. The NOSC will ensure NAVETS and
OSVETS are properly coded on the Reserve Unit Activity Document and will
track the total time of deferment. Upon reaching the end of the deferment
period, the NOSC will remove the MAS code. Accurate accounting of the
effective dates for the AS1 and TS1 MAS codes is imperative.
d. Sailors may volunteer for a mobilization at any time during the
deferment period. Upon signing Administrative Remarks (NAVPERS 1070/613)
voluntary waiver of deferment, the NOSC will remove or change the MAS code to
VOL (from AS1 or TS1) to reflect a volunteer status. If the Sailor desires
to remove the VOL MAS code and is not currently identified for mobilization,
the AS1 or TS1 may be re-entered until the original 1- or 2-year deferment
date from affiliation has passed.
5. This policy will be maintained and updated by the Chief of Navy Reserve
through the Navy Reserve Personnel Manual M-1001.5.
