Service Records

• The enlisted service record is an official record of a person’s Navy Career. The record is the property of the Navy.

• Papers required for safe keeping or for record keeping purposes are filed on the left hand side of the folder. A separator called the Career Performance Data NAVPERS 1070/617 divides the left side. Under this you will find your evaluations and counseling record, commendations and awards correspondence, and previous DD-214s.

• Page 2- The Dependency Application/Record of Emergency Data, NAVPERS 1070/602: used by both enlisted and officers. Is used for casualty reporting to next of kin.
