MILLINGTON, Tenn. (NNS) -- Due to a lapse in federal funding, all statutory and administrative selection boards scheduled for October are being rescheduled, Navy leaders said Oct. 11.

According to Capt. Chris Halton, assistant commander for Career Progression, NPC, boards are comprised of Sailors from around the world. Since Navy Personnel Command (NPC) has no travel funding, no one is able to be a voting member of a board or work as an assistant recorder.

"NPC does not vote on any board and the board recommendations are made by Fleet sailors," said Halton.

An updated fiscal year 2015 board schedule will be posted on the NPC website once all of the details are worked out.

Visit in the upcoming days for the updated schedule.

The tradition marks the most difficult promotion in an enlisted Sailor's career. NMCB-3 provides combatant commanders and Navy component commanders with combat-ready warfighters capable of general engineering, construction and limited combat engineering across the full range of military operations.
