GENTEXT/REMARKS/1.  On 14 August 2017, the Commandant of the Marine Corps (CMC) and the Deputy Commandant for Manpower and Reserve Affairs (DC MRA) convened the FY18 RCSB and RSLB.  The purpose of command screening is to ensure that Marines receive the best possible leadership and to provide all eligible officers with a fair and equitable opportunity to command.
2.  The board selected 29 officers for command and 10 officers for senior leader billets as primaries.  To accommodate the assignment process and the availability of individual officers, 59 officers were selected as alternates and found eligible for command.  The alternate list provides an adequate number of officers to meet the command requirements should a primary decline command or otherwise be unable to take command.
3.  The quality of the Marines considered reaffirms that the Marine Corps continues to produce leaders of the highest caliber.  The relatively small number of command billets available and the large number of eligible officers creates an exceptionally competitive process.
4.  CMC has approved the following Reserve Colonel Command Slate.  Each billet is listed with title, unit, location, slate name, and Primary Military Occupational Specialty (PMOS), with projected change of command (PCOC) date.
