The U.S. Navy has announced changes to its High Year Tenure (HYT) policy. The Navy will now include Individual Ready Reserve (IRR) members under this policy. RR includes members of Navy Reserve Volunteer Training Units (VTUs) and the Navy Reserve's Active Status Pool (ASP). New rules impacting these members include making LOS limits apply to the IRR and establishing a ceiling for ASP Sailors not serving in the VTU. All changes are enumerated in MILPERSMAN (MPM) article 1160-120 High Year Tenure. All affected Sailors should seek counseling from their command and unit career counselors. Notification of ASP Sailors will be done by the Reserve Enlisted Personnel Branch (PERS-913).
