Continuation is the deferment of involuntary retirement or discharge for years of service or failures of selection for promotion of eligible Regular and Reserve officers serving in permanent grades above lieutenant junior grade. The annual Officer Grade Continuation plan approved by the Secretary of the Navy issues continuation policy by grade and competitive category to meet service requirements. A NAVADMIN message, providing continuation policy is released each year.
U.S. Code, Title 10 and SECNAVINST 1920.7B are the governing instructions for officer continuations.
