Navy Should Allow Greater Sabbatical Leniency, Says Vice Admiral

The Virginian-Pilot reports that “thousands of sailors leave the Navy every year because they want to start a family. Or to enroll in school. Or because they are burned out on frequent deployments and months away from home.”  

“With the national unemployment rate dropping and more service members opting for the private sector, the chief of naval personnel says he wants to do everything he can to keep the best sailors in uniform longer – even if that means letting them go for a while.”  

“’We need to offer meaningful incentives to keep the best talent we can, both men and women,’ said Vice Adm. Bill Moran, whose job is best summarized as the Navy’s director of human resources.”
