The boys in the Executive Officer’s office are
often asked by members of the crew as to the
time they may expect to be transferred to
duty afloat, and although no one can be sure,
here is all the information that is available.
All men are liable to transfer at any time,
of course, but certain bulletins are issued from
time to time setting down procedure to be fol
lowed in sending men from shore to ship.
Approximately every six months, usually
in January and July, the Bureau of Naval Per
sonnel conducts a survey of all men who are
stationed on shore bases within the contin
ental limits of the United States, and those
that have been on shore a certain length of
time become eligible immediately for transfer
to duty at sea or at advanced bases.
Next month, July 10 to be exact, one of these
surveys will be held, and all men, PHYSICAL
LY QUALIFIED, who have been serving on
shore duty within the continental limits of the
United States on or prior to January 1, 1942
will have their names submitted as being
eligible for transfer. This exempts certain
ratings, such as specialists, Musicians, and
Those whose names are submitted can ex
pect to be transferred sometime during Au
gust, and if you are eligible under the fore
going, it might be a good idea to get your af
fairs in shape. (Fm eligible, and am trying to.
get ready now.)
In addition to these semi-annual surveys,
this activity is required to submit the names
of two men each month to the Bureau of Naval
Personnel, who are qualified for duty afloat
or at advanced bases. These two vacancies
are filled by volunteers, men with greatest
amounts of shore duty, and other methods.
That seems to be about all the information
available at the present time on the question
except that Administrative Commands are au
thorized to transfer men who are in excess,
who are not needed, to receiving stations for
general duty at any time. Also, when V-10 per
sonnel (WAVES) report aboard, names of
men are submitted who are being relieved by
such personnel, and these men usually are
transferred to duty afloat within a few weeks.
To crew members who desire transfers, it is
suggested that you bring your requests to
Chief Yeoman Byers in the Executive Officer’s
office, and he will do his best to accommodate
you. Remember the old saying, “The sooner
you get out there, the sooner you’ll get back.”
