WASHINGTON (NNS) -- The fiscal year (FY) 2018 Full Time Support (FTS) Aviation Department Head Retention Bonus (ADHRB) was released in NAVADMIN 168/18, July 13.

The FY 2018 program mirrors the previous FTS ADHRB program and is designed to retain those officers with the talent and command experience in primary warfighting missions that are critical for the future of the Navy.
