Re: Enlisted Promotion Submission clarifications (Naval Directive 15-SE-02)


This Naval Directive is to clarify the promotion procedures for enlisted members of The Royal Manticoran Navy: The Official Honor Harrington Fan Association, Inc.. This Naval Directive clarifies the enlisted promotion procedure and augments the information in the Membership Handbook, and in the case of disagreement, this Naval Directive takes precedence.

All enlisted members from the ranks of E-1 (Spacer 3rd Class) to E-5 (Petty Officer 2nd Class) SHALL be promoted to the next higher grade by their Commanding Officer once they have met the proper Time In Grade and completed the requisite exams.

All enlisted members rank E-6 (Petty Officer 1st Class), on completion of Time in Grade, requisite exam completion and presence of a billet SHALL be submitted for promotion to the Senior Master Chief of the Navy for consideration for promotion to the rank of E-7 (Chief Petty Officer) using the appropriate promotion request form. The Commanding Officer has the option of giving a Positive, Neutral or Negative recommendation and is encouraged to fully explain the reasons behind this recommendation. The Commanding Officer may also submit letters of recommendation as appropriate.

All enlisted members rank E-7 (Chief Petty Officer) to E-9 (Master Chief Petty Officer) on completion of Time in Grade, requisite exam completion and presence of a billet SHALL be submitted for promotion to the Senior Master Chief of the Navy for consideration for review and submission to the Enlisted Promotions Board as constituted under Admiralty Order 1102-17 using the appropriate promotion request form. The Commanding Officer has the option of giving a Positive, Neutral or Negative recommendation and is encouraged to fully explain the reasons behind this recommendation. The Commanding Officer may also submit letters of recommendation as appropriate.

Please note the emphasis on SHALL, it is not the Commanding Officer's privilege to hold up any promotion on anything other than time in grade or course completion. Admiralty House does understand and endorse that it takes more than this to earn a promotion, but this is where the endorsement and explanation portion of the recommendation is important, and pocketing any such recommendation for any reasons, even legitimate ones, is not acceptable.

Should a promotion be declined by the Promotion board for any reason the name and nomination shall be retained by the enlisted board for discussion in the next and subsequent promotion board(s) after consultation with the Ships CO. This shall remain the case until the candidate is promoted or the board deems that the candidate is not or shall never be qualified for promotion.[1]

This directive made under my hand will be effective 0001 hours 11-SEP-2015. Update effective 0001 hours 30-SEP-2016.[1]

In Honour of the Queen!
