Default Navy Personnel Question

Officer on active duty needs to get certification of current active duty service commitment. He's asked a lot of people (but obviously not the right person yet). He may an officer and a gentlemen for life but his active duty service commitment (due to his schooling) is only five years (He thinks!!) What is this called in the Navy? Specifically, where can it be found (enlistment contract, personnel records???....Any help?

Current regulations, and it's pretty hard to find a reg that specifically says 'Officer X owes 5 years'. His personal circumstance is interpreted by the personnel folks, and the regulation is applied to determine what his commitment is.

If it's for what the two most common reasons are (mortgage or interviewing for a job), he needs a memorandum signed by his Commander or Personnel officer (in the Army we call that an Adjutant) and it's almost always good enough for people sweating him.

In the Navy the 'PN's print those letters routinely. He only needs to go to 'personnel' and ask them.

I had to get one a few times during my career.

PN's or PS's generally do that sort of thing. Maybe the YN's on occasion, but definitely someone in the Admin department.
