These records are to be destroyed after the suggested 5 year retention period with none of them being kept permanently. These active duty military orders are only used to verify when a state employee was officially activated to assist in calculating proper pay and benefits from the state payroll. Public need is meant since according to SECNAVINST 5212.5C, these military orders are only retained by the Federal Government for 2 years then destroyed and the state is keeping them for 5 years. No state legal citation could be found at this time.
