The U.S. Navy has announced that it has increased detailers' authority to transfer Sailors from their shore duty assignment earlier than their projected rotation date (PRD). The Sailor Early Return to Sea (SERTS) policy enables enlisted rating detailers to begin filling high-priority E4-E9 sea duty billets by using an increased distribution authority. Sailors will not transfer until they have at least completed 24 months on shore. Also, Sailors in special program billets will not be considered for SERTS. SERTS candidates may also be selected to fill vacant requirements within their pay band: supervisor (E7-E9), journeyman (E5-E6), and apprentice (E1-E4).
