ENLISTED SERVICE RECORDS
Learning Objectives: Recognize the contents of the
enlisted service record. Recognize the Record of
Emergency Data (page 2). Recall the types of
information found on the Enlisted Qualification History
The enlisted service record is the official history of a
persons Navy career. The information contained in the
service record starts when you apply for enlistment and
is added to throughout your naval service. The record is
the property of the Navy and must be safeguarded
against loss and against access by unauthorized persons.
Service record entries are made by those personnel who
are given such authority by the commanding officer. The
enlisted service record, NAVPERS 1070/600, is a flat
folder containing various forms concerning your
enlisted service. Your service record will contain only
the forms that apply to you.
The right-hand side has certain forms in a specific
order. The order in which these forms are filed has led
to their being referred to as pages. For example, your
enlistment contract is the first, or bottommost, form. It
is referred to as page 1. Some of the forms found in all
service records will be discussed later.
Other papers required for safekeeping or record
purposes are filed on the left-hand side of the folder. A
separator, entitled Career Performance Data,
NAVPERS 1070/617, divides the left-hand side.
Beneath this separator are your evaluation report and
counseling record, commendations, and awards
correspondence. If you have a previous enlistment,
copies of any Certificates of Release or Discharge from
Active Duty, DD Forms 214, are filed beneath the
separator. All other papers are filed above the separator
in chronological order, the most recent date on top.
Only two forms from the enlisted service record
will be discussed in this chapter. The remaining forms
are more or less of an administrative nature. Some
pages require several sheets during an enlistment. For
example, there usually will be several page 13s.
