Cuts to be cut by CNO; decreased turmoil needed The Chief of Naval Operations announced tentative plans last weekend to reduce the enlisted early release program from three to two months beginning in July. Adm. Elmo Zumwalt said persons with EAOS dates in July, August and September probably would be separated two months early. The program is expected to continue at least through December 1971. Hospital corpsmen,dental tech- nicians and strikers will not be authorized early release, the CNO said, " to ensure an increased level of medical service for our personnel and their dependents." The tentative two-month early outs are expected to be finalized in February, when the next phase of the early release program is issued. The three-month plan has been in effect since October 1969. Adm. Zumwalt said the tentative changes are being made to allevi- ate "an increased level of tur- moil throughout the Navy and a loss of many skilled personnel."
