The U.S. Navy has announced a policy and process change directing commands to immediately take action to align Sailors' End of Active Obligated Service (EAOS) with their duty station tour length. The new policy changes and processes are: Commanding officer's (CO) extension authority, Obligated service (OBLISERV) policy, Career Waypoints (C-WAY) policy, and Enlistment extension policy. Effective immediately, Permanent Change of Station (PCS) orders will now require obligated service (OBLISERV) to complete their full prescribed tour. Sailors will now meet the OBLISERV requirements through enlistment extension, reenlistment, or, in some cases, by filing an Administrative Remarks prior to executing orders.
