OPNAVINST 1740.5B says members will be approved for overseas orders if DTI <30%. Question for you old salts: Is "overseas duty" the same as "sea duty"? Meaning, is being stationed in Naples the same as being assigned to the USS Alwaysunderway? If not, is a sailor (E4) prohibited from going to sea by his DTI ratio being >30%? Also, not to sea-lawyer this too much, but 1740.5B says "will be approved" ...it doesn't say anything about being denied. Is there a process to have this waived? Anyone know what this might be?
