The U.S. Navy has announced the establishment of a new program, the Reserve Component to Active Component (RC to AC), which will offer enlisted Reservists opportunities to convert to permanent active duty careers. Once released from their Reserve obligations and assigned to their new billets, RC to AC participants will become active duty Sailors in every respect, including being eligible for AC advancement, permanent change of station orders, and selective reenlistment bonus eligibility. Interested Reservists can apply to Navy Personnel Command (PERS-92) through his or her unit and Naval Reserve Activity commanding officer in response to advertised vacancies with specific proficiency, year-group and other requirements. Vacancies will be advertised via the GovDelivery system. Reservists can sign up for GovDelivery notifications through the Navy Reserve Forces Command homepage at www.navyreserve.navy.mil. To learn more about the RC to AC program, Sailors may speak with their chain of command or call the NPC customer service center at 1-866-U-ASK-NPC, (1-866-827-5672).
