The U.S. Navy recently expanded the SRB program by adding 39 skills in 12 ratings and increasing award levels for 135 skills in 48 ratings. In addition to the SRB expansion, reenlistment windows were expanded to allow Sailors to reenlist within 180 days of their end of active obligated service, including exceptions to allow up to one calendar year in some cases. These cases include Sailors eligible for combat zone tax exclusion, Sailors who receive an early promote in their most recent periodic evaluation, and Sailors who must meet obligated service requirements for a permanent change of station. For more information on SRB, visit the Navy Personnel Command website.
