SASEBO NAVAL BASE, Japan — The Navy Personnel Command launched a new enlisted retention board Web page this week on its command website.

“Our objective is to provide Sailors and their families with a one-stop shop for all enlisted retention board-related information to answer their questions in a centralized location,” Lt. Cmdr. Delmy Robinson, strategic communications officer for the command said in a news release.

Due to high retention and low attrition, the Navy will conduct a focused enlisted retention board in the coming months for 31 specific ratings for active-duty sailors that are more than 103 percent manned, the navy announced recently. About 3,000 of the 16,000 sailors to be examined will not be retained, Navy officials said.
