MILLINGTON, Tenn. (NNS) — The Navy Reserve Force Selected Reserve (SELRES) E4 – E6 Cycle 90 advancement results are scheduled to be released July 2.
Navy Reserve leadership delayed the release of the cycle 90 E4 – E6 advancement results in order to incorporate the results of a Navy study on the Reserve Forces. The findings of this study provided the opportunity to make a better informed decision on how to maximize promotion opportunities for all E4 – E6 Sailors.
“I know it has been a difficult wait and we thank you for your patience. I want to let you know that the Reserve E4-E6 advancement results are being briefed and we will let you know as soon as possible the outcome of the brief,” said Navy Reserve Force Master Chief (AW) Chris T. Wheeler. “The focus has always been to get the number of advancements right not just for this cycle, but for the future as well.”
The high retention in the Navy Reserve and planned force billet reductions in future years will result in fewer advancement quotas for Cycle 90 than for Cycle 89. However, the delay in announcing the advancement results has ensured that all relevant information could be incorporated in order to make an accurate determination of the advancement quotas.
“The finding of this study provided the information we needed to make the most informed decision possible,” said Lt. Cmdr. Brad Slocum, SELRES enlisted community manager, Bureau of Naval Personnel. “Our goal throughout this process is to maximize advancement opportunities within the force structure as the Navy Reserve moves forward.”
