The Navy has announced it would cancel three early separation programs in order to retain sailors and increase the size of the fleet. The announcement, made on Wednesday by Vice Adm. Robert P. Burke, the chief of Naval Personnel, ends one program that allowed enlisted personnel to apply for early separation and a second through which senior officers could retire early. A program that allowed servicemembers to request early separation for family or personal hardships is also being cancelled. For more details, see this Military.com article.
