The Retirement Transition Outreach (RTO) initiative educates Navy Reservists regarding the processes and benefits for Reserve Retirement.
RTO events range in duration from three hours to three days, for different milestones and concerns. RTO informational event formats include:
Reserve Retirement Waypoint (RRW), Reserve Retirement Counseling Session (RRCS), and Retirement Awareness Workshop (RAW).
The new RTO Program Manager is now onboard in Millington! FY23 events will be resuming shortly.
The first FY23 event will be on Thursday evening, February 2, offered virtually via Teams, 1800-2100 Central Time. This will be a Reserve Retirement Waypoint (RRW), best suited to those who are within a couple years of applying for their retired pay. If you miss this but are interested, don’t worry! The next one will be coming quickly after that, on Wednesday evening, February 15, also offered virtually via Teams, also 1800-2100 Central Time.

In May 2022, Chief of the Navy Reserve Vice Adm. John Mustin released his Navy Reserve Fighting Instructions 2022 Update.
The NRFI 2022 Update introduced the 4th Line of Effort, Develop the Force.
Chief of Navy Reserve Releases Navy Reserve Fighting Instructions 2022: Updates Design, Train and Mobilize Lines of Effort, Announces Develop the Force > > Article View News
"Develop the Force Introduction:
Announcing the new LOE, Mustin noted that “Our Sailors are our asymmetric advantage.
It is contingent upon us to focus on inclusion and equity allowing our Navy Reserve to harness our entire diverse team of
Sailors and civilians to maximize our warfighting capability and readiness.
We promote a positive culture of dignity and respect by living our Navy’s core values of honor, courage, and commitment.
We will enable and empower our Sailors, embrace ownership and ingenuity, and reinforce the simple, unifying concept that
Sailors and commands will take care of themselves and their people, all the while removing barriers constraining our warfighting advantage.”
The LOE was initiated to deliver against that vision and to align the Force with the Chief of Naval Operations’ “Get Real, Get Better” initiative.
Specific actions are already underway."
