9. Courts-Martial, Administrative Separation Proceedings, and Controverted Cases

c. Members being processed for any type of involuntary administrative separation and who are referred into the DES may continue to be processed for determination of fitness for continued naval service.
(1) If the local Separation Authority (SA) believes the member should not enter the DES because they are being involuntarily administratively processed under provisions that authorize a characterization of service of other than honorable conditions, the DES case must be referred to the first General
Officer/Flag Officer (GO/FO) in the chain of command for a final determination of referral into the DES or disapproval. Once referred into the DES, these members will continue to be processed in the DES unless the GO/FO noted above disapproves such continuation.
(2) The SA for enlisted dual processing cases shall be the first GO/FO in the Service Member’s chain of command unless a higher authority is required. The SA for officers is governed by reference (h). The SA may direct separation prior to completion of the DES process if the SA determines and documents, in writing, that the member should be separated for the misconduct despite the ratable medical condition.
(3) Refer to reference (i) or (j) for the appropriate SA for all Involuntary Administrative Separations of Service Members diagnosed with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) or Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), and for any Service Members with 18 or more years of total Active-Duty military service.
(4) For PTSD, TBI, or other mental health conditions, an appropriately privileged military health care provider will be consulted for a medical opinion as to whether the ratable medical condition that caused the referral into the DES contributed to a basis for which the member is being separated.
