WASHINGTON ? Almost 8,000 senior enlisted personnel must go before a continuation board later this year to determine whether they can continue to serve or must retire.

The board ? the first since early 2013 ? will convene Oct. 27, according to a Navy document released Aug. 14.

At risk are between 7,500 and 8,000 retirement-eligible active and reserve E-7s, E-8s and E-9s with at least at least three years' time in rate.

But there is a big upside to the process: Clearing out senior enlisted who have engaged in misconduct or whose performance has slipped noticeably makes way for hot running sailors to move up.

The board has no exceptions; even the most senior sailors ? up to and including Master Chief Petty Officer of the Navy Mike Stevens ? will have their records reviewed.

"It's an opportunity for us, as chief petty officers, to police ourselves,"

That's one way to eliminate pension prospects.

Reminds me of my first job with a consulting firm that routinely had a purge(and yes they used the word purge to characterize their process) every quarter of deciding who got to stay on for another quarter.  However, since they paid low wages, one was never going to work for too long without feeling the ax for the company to save money.  There was an inexhaustible supply of fresh graduates from universities across America willing to work for nominal wages.
