Acronyms for Sailors
Looks like a variation on similar ones from the past, but with new acronyms...
Is there an IT-world equivalent??
As a result of Senate proposed force reductions and budget cuts the Department of the Navy has developed a program to reduce the number of active duty personnel. This program is under test phase and will be effective 1 DECEMBER 2005. Under this new program, older Sailors will be asked to go on early retirement, thus permitting the retention of the younger Sailors who represent the future. Therefore, this program will phase out older sailors by the end of the current fiscal year.
This initial phase of the program will be known as Sailors Late-Aged Program (SLAP). Sailors who are SLAPPED will be given the opportunity to look for jobs outside the Navy.
SLAPPED sailors can request a review of their personnel records before actual retirement takes place.This phase of the program is called Survey of Capabilities of Retired Early Workers (SCREW). All sailors who have been SLAPPED or SCREWED, may file an appeal with their chain of command with final authority at the Personnel Command level. This is called Study by Higher Authority Following Termination (SHAFT).
Under the terms of the new policy, a sailor may be SLAPPED once, SCREWED twice, but may be SHAFTED as many times as the Navy deems appropriate.
If a Sailor follows the above procedures, he/she will be entitled to get Half Earnings for Retired Personnel's Early Severance (HERPES) or Combined Lump-sum Assistance Payment (CLAP), unless he/she already has Additional Income From Dependents or Spouse (AIDS).
As HERPES and CLAP are considered benefit plans, any sailor who has received HERPES or CLAP will no longer be SLAPPED or SCREWED by the Navy.
The Navy wishes to assure the younger Sailors who remain on board, that the Navy will continue its policy of training sailors through our Special High Intensity Training (S**T). The Navy takes pride in the amount of S**T our sailors receive. We have given our sailors more S**T than any other service. If any sailor feels they do not receive enough S**T at their current base, see your immediate supervisor.
THE NAVY'S SUPERVISORS ARE SPECIALLY TRAINED TO MAKE SURE YOU RECEIVE ALL THE S**T YOU CAN STAND.
