DHRB Payment Fact Sheet

OBLIGATION: Obligated service resulting from the DHRB will extend through YCS-11 anniversary.  In cases where completion of two DH tours or one single longer tour as assigned by PERS-41 extended beyond YCS-11, the Officer may not be released until their projected rotation date.

Application Process:

  • All applications require written endorsement from applicants Commander or Commanding Officer

  • Email a scanned copy of the signed original contract and COs endorsement to your Detailer.

 

Preferred method for submission is to scan and email to us.  Send the email to your "Divo Detailer", not the 1st-Tour DH Detailer.  The detailers will ensure it is processed and will be able to view it in your record.

If you submit via email, DO NOT submit a snail mail duplicate hardcopy; your e-submitted application will be processed the same way as one with original signatures.
