KEEP YOUR RECORD UPDATED!!
The responsibility for reviewing and updating your Official Records is YOURS alone. This is especially important when you’re up for a selection board, but should be done periodically as well. The three records to be concerned with are your Officer Data Card (ODC), Official Military Personnel File (Electronic Record), and Officer Summary Record (OSR)/Performance Summary Record (PSR).
Review your record carefully, documents can become blurred, dark, or in extreme cases, missing during the digitization process. Pay particular attention to the legibility of your FITREPs, personal award citations, and your photograph. If you need to submit documents to update your record, follow directions provided by PERS-312.
BUPERS maintains a dedicated room for officers to review their records on the same computer systems used by members of selection boards. If in the Millington area, it would be well worth your time to drop by and review your record online. Contact us and we'll provide directions.
For Officer Precedence Numbers (aka "Lineal Numbers"), see the Naval Register.
