Bouncing back

Gavel, by Wikipedia
Did you know that at any time after a Sailor has been reduced in rank from E-2 or E-3, a CO can restore them based on their performance? It's true!

2. Reinstatement to Pay Grades E-2 and E-3.  As outlined in reference (a), COs have the authority to reinstate members to E-2 or E-3 (one paygrade only) any time after reduction in rate, without referral to higher authority.

Other reductions can be appealed and restored, but it must be at least 12 months after the offense.
