Navy channeling Willy Wonka — offering ‘golden tickets’ to return after getting out | Navy Times

Sailors in good standing who want to get out and test the waters of civilian life, but not completely sever ties to the Navy, may now have an option that will be just the ticket — literally.

The Targeted Reentry Program was announced Feb. 27 by Chief of Naval Personnel Vice Adm. Robert Burke. With the program, the Navy will offer gold or silver tickets to qualified officers and enlisted sailors who might be dead set on leaving, but may want to return within a couple years.

The Navy is planning to grow the fleet to the tune of 25,000 more sailors over the next five years, and this is one way the service hopes to reach that goal.
