The Targeted Reentry Program (TRP) is designed to give those Sailors identified as some of our best a opportunity to return to Active Duty service.
Edit due to seeming confusion in the comments: this program is not retroactive. It does not apply to personnel who have already left the Navy. You must be approved for the program prior to leaving Active Duty.
