NAVAL MILITARY PERSONNEL
The Naval Military Personnel Manual (NAVPERS
administration of Navy personnel. This manual is
often referred to by its short title, MILPERSMAN and
it replaced the BUPERS-MAN. Copies of the
MILPERSMAN are normally maintained in the
personnel and administrative offices.
Each article in the MILPERSMAN is identified by
a seven-digit number. The first two digits identify
the chapter; the second two digits identify a section
within a chapter; and the last three digits identify an
article within the section. Though written together
(e.g., 5820100), the article number should be
spoken as if it were three separate groups of
numbers (e.g., 58 20 100). Article numbers are not
necessarily assigned consecutively and, once a
number is deleted, it cannot be reused again. Figure
4-6 was extracted from the 1 January 1982 edition
of the MILPERSMAN.
Changes to the MILPERSMAN are published
quarterly. These changes are scheduled for
distribution in time to reach the majority of users on
or about the first of each quarter of the year. It
should be noted that pen-and-ink changes are not
allowed to be made to the MILPERSMAN.
