PSC-epm-1 Branch Chief
CDR Luis Parrales



My name is CDR Luis Parrales and I am the Branch Chief for the Advancements and Separations Branch of the Enlisted Personnel Management Division. Our staff consists of 15 personnel (8 military, 7 civilians).

Our branch consists of; Advancements, Separations, Career Retentions, Enlisted Panels (Advanced Education & Training), and Retirements, which have the overall responsibility for many personnel functions, including the following listed below. In addition, we work very closely with the Assignments Branch (CG PSC-epm-2) in coordinating separations, extensions, retirements, extended active duty (EAD) and many other programs. Due to our extensive workload, when calling or emailing anyone on staff, please be patient when expecting a reply.

Note: Please do not e-mail the staff directly for questions, status updates, or return receipts unless specifically asked to do so.  The section e-mail addresses listed below and in ALCGENL 059/11 have been established explicitly for our business lines.
