Keene, NavStaKef commanding officer. Three other people of the Naval Station, and one man of NMCB 133 Detachment will be advanced to the next higher paygrade during the same ceremonies. Under a new policy announced by the Navy, men and women selected for advancement to petty officer pay grades E-4 through E-9 may be frocked to the next higher pay grade if serving in a billet of the grade for which they were selected, or higher. The reason for the change in policy is to give commanding of- ficers the flexibility to recognize deserving individuals by placing them into vacant billets of the next higher paygrade. Frocking is an administrative authorization that allows personnel to wear the uniform of a higher pay grade, although it does not entitle the wearer to the pay and allowances of the higher grade until the act- ual advancement. The following personnel will be frocked to the ranks shown: ACC Edward L. Cosmah, EMC Mich- ael W. Price, AOC Ted L. Scott, HMJ. Lawrence D. Bennett, MM1 Gary R. Brightbill, MSI Armando A.
