2.  TO ENSURE OPERATIONAL EFFECTIVENESS NOW AND IN THE FUTURE, OUR
NAVY MUST ATTRACT THE HIGHEST QUALITY RECRUITS AND PRIOR SERVICE
VETERANS.  A VIGOROUS RECRUITING PLAN REQUIRES FLEXIBLE TOOLS TO
ENSURE WE ARE RECRUITING THE CORRECT NUMBER OF SAILORS WITH THE RIGHT
SKILLS TO OPTIMIZE OUR WAR-FIGHTING CAPABILITY.
3.  THE FOLLOWING PARAGRAPHS IDENTIFY EACH BONUS PROGRAM.  GUIDANCE IN
THIS NAVADMIN SUPERSEDES REF B IN ANY AREA WHERE THE TWO MAY CONFLICT.

THEIR BONUS OPPORTUNITY.
B.  NEW ACCESSION TRAINING (NAT) PROGRAM ENLISTMENT BONUS
(1) ALL BASIC ELIGIBILITY CRITERIA CONTAINED IN REF B REMAIN
IN EFFECT.
(2) BONUS EFFECTIVE DATE IS DETERMINED BY THE DATE A SAILOR
CONTRACTS IN THE ARMED FORCES (DELAYED ENTRY PROGRAM (DEP) DATE), AND
NOT THE DATE A SAILOR SHIPS TO RECRUIT TRAINING (BOOT CAMP).
