Naval Officer Retroactively Promoted, Allowed to Retire

Mr. Cassara represented a Navy Lieutenant (0-3) who was passed over for promotion as a result of adverse OER’s.  As a result, the officer was separated from the Naval Reserves.  We petitioned the Board for Correction of Naval Records on the officer’s behalf, arguing that the adverse OER’s should be removed and the officer should be promoted.  The BCNR agreed and retroactively promoted the officer to Lieutenant Commander.  They also reinstated the officer in the Naval Reserves, and will allow him to continue to serve until retirement.
