RELIGIOUS PROGRAM SPECIALIST (RP)

Greetings fellow RPs 

I am RPCS (SW/FMF) Wanda F. Wright, your E1-E9 Detailer.  I’d like to briefly address two topics.  First, the Religious Program Specialist rating is closed to REGA.  No waivers will be approved.  Our rating is 104% manned.  I understand there are excellent candidates that you encounter every day in the fleet who desire to be a member of the greatest rating in the Navy - RP. 

Second, Sailors are expected to serve their complete sea or shore tours as assigned.  MILPERSMAN 1306-116 (PRESCRIBED SEA TOUR (PST) / NORMAL SHORE TOUR (NST)) and NAVADMIN 234/08 (SEA SHORE FLOW (SSF) ENLISTED CAREER PATH) states the policy governing tour lengths. 

Once a Sailor commences his/her sea tour or shore tour, they are expected to complete the tour through their established Projected Rotation Date (PRD).  There are few exceptions to the rule to either shorten or extend your PRD.  Exceptions require an approved Enlisted Personnel Action Request (NAVPERS 1306/7) by your Commanding Officer and personal contact with the Detailer.

 

Maintenance and Material Management (3-M) Coordinators at Sea (3MC)

 Are there no in-rate billets available for you at sea?  Are you a highly motivated leader and desire increased responsibility and challenge?  Do you desire an assignment to a specific geographical area?  Consider assignment as a 3MC.  Contact your detailer to determine your eligibility.  Remember – your detailer must release you to the 3MC Detailer before he (the 3MC Detailer) can discuss specific duty station assignments with you.  Check out the 3MC webpage for additional information.
