A SEAL Senior Chief Petty Officer, forced to retire after losing his SEAL NEC, was vindicated by BCNR. He was awarded all backpay and allowances, constructive active duty credit (2 ½ years), and his NEC and all special pays were returned to him. Additionally, his SRB debt was waived. Senior Chief had tested positive during a command urinalysis, but he was exonerated by an adsep board. However, after his adsep board his commanding officer refuse to return the Senior Chief’s NEC. As a result of losing the NEC, he was not allowed to convert to another rating and Navy Personnel Command ordered him to be retired. This BCNR decision will return hundreds of thousands of lost pay and allowances to our client!
