Transition Process

     Benefits of the Navy Reserve

• Two year mobilization deferment
• Montgomery GI Bill/Post 911

        Challenges to the Process

• When PTS applications are not submitted timely or not
  at all.
  Impact: No SELRES quota, or limits number of “looks”
  the sailor receives in PTS for a SELRES quota.

• When a Service member’s contact data is not current.
  Impact: Seriously impacts our ability to initiate the
  transition when it is difficult or impossible to contact the
