    NAVY REDUCING OR ELIMANATING 95% OF SRB's

    Advertisements
    As we all know the Navy is downsizing and has implemented some key programs as of late including the latest SRB Message that reduced about 400 NEC's from getting a nice bonus.

    Well very shortly the Navy is going to cut and actually elimanate jobs completely from getting an SRB. The only areas that won't be affected are the NUC and SPECWAR. Those rates that have been use to SRB's for years are no longer needed and will see basically nothing.

    The reason they are doing this is that they have over spent on SRB's and they are no longer undermanned in certain critical skills.

    This will also affect those Sailors who only reenlist for the SRB because they will leave the Navy now.

    DH's did, too. His job didn't come with a bonus last time, this time it came with a huge bonus...and they took most of it away. Such a bummer.

    It is absolutely crazy what is going on in the Navy. In my job it is hard to stay on top of the changes these last few months.

    I am looking for the message as much as I am looking to see if I made board. It's addicting.

    Dh didn't get an enlistment bonus and now they took away his srb too. Sucks but oh well...it is just a bonus, at least he still has a job!

    G was so lucky to get the one he got back in '01. Thankfully at that point one of his NEC's was still getting them.

    I'm really not surprised that they're doing away with a lot of them..

    Well, I'm what I am and I'm what I'm not
    and I'm sure happy with what Iíve got
    I live to love and laugh alot
    and thatís all I need

    My husband never reenlisted specifically for an SRB. He got like $1500 once, but that was so little it really has never been part of his decision. I am sure in a few years, once manning is back down, they will pop up again.
