NARR/REF A IS U.S. CODE TITLE 10, SECTION 671. REF B IS MCO 1001R.54E
(I/IADT PROGRAM). REF C IS MARADMIN 128/02.
RMKS/1. PURPOSE. TO PUBLISH REVISED POLICY AND PROCEDURAL GUIDANCE
FOR THE ACTIVATION OF NEWLY JOINED PRIOR SERVICE AND NON-PRIOR
SERVICE SMCR MARINES IAW THE PROVISIONS OF REFS A AND B. THE
GUIDANCE CONTAINED HEREIN SUPERCEDES REF C. REF C IS CANCELLED.
2. BACKGROUND. REF C PROVIDED INITIAL GUIDANCE ON ACTIVATION POLICIES
AND PROCEDURES AFFECTING TWO CATEGORIES OF SELECTED MARINE CORPS
RESERVE (SMCR) PERSONNEL: THOSE UNDERGOING INITIAL ACTIVE DUTY FOR
TRAINING (IADT) AND INCREMENTAL IADT (I/IADT) AND NON-PRIOR SERVICE
AND PRIOR SERVICE NEW JOINS. ACTIVATION POLICIES AND PROCEDURES HAVE
BEEN MODIFIED TO MEET CURRENT AND PROJECTED MOBILIZATION REQUIREMENTS
AND THE OPERATIONAL NEEDS OF SMCR UNITS.
3. DISCUSSION. THE EXPECTED LONG-TERM NATURE OF THE CURRENT CONFLICT
REQUIRES THAT WE MAINTAIN NON-PRIOR SERVICE (NPS) AND PRIOR SERVICE
(PS) RECRUITING PIPELINES DURING THE PARTIAL MOBILIZATION. BALANCING
SUPPORT OF MOBILIZATION WITH CURRENT ACCESSION PLANS WILL ENHANCE
SMCR UNIT OPERATIONAL READINESS WHILE MINIMIZING THE POTENTIAL
NEGATIVE, LONG-TERM IMPACT ON RECRUITING, RETENTION AND POST-
MOBILIZATION MANNING.
A. DURING PERIODS WHEN PS RECRUITERS ARE DETACHED FROM
MCRC TO SUPPORT INITIAL MOBILIZATION PROCESSING, RECRUITING TO THE PS
MANPOWER PLAN WILL BE TEMPORARILY SUSPENDED. HOWEVER, UNITS MAY
CONTINUE TO JOIN PS MARINES UTILIZING THE FOLLOWING GUIDANCE:
(1) SMCR UNIT COMMANDERS WILL USE THEIR CAREER RETENTION
SPECIALISTS TO EFFECT UNIT-CONTACT PS JOINS.
(2) IMA OPSPONSORS WILL COORDINATE DIRECTLY WITH MCRSC TO EFFECT
COMMAND-CONTACT IMA JOINS.
B. THE PS RECRUITING MISSION WILL BE ADJUSTED BASED ON
THE LENGTH OF PS RECRUITING SUSPENSION, THE EXTENT, NATURE AND
DURATION OF SMCR ACTIVATION, AND THE OVERALL IMPACT OF STOP LOSS
POLICIES AND INVOLUNTARY ACTIVATION OF INDIVIDUAL READY RESERVE (IRR)
MARINES ON MARINE CORPS RESERVE END STRENGTH.
4. GUIDANCE. THIS MARADMIN PROVIDES NEW POLICY AND PROCEDURAL
GUIDANCE AFFECTING THE ACTIVATION OF NEWLY JOINED NPS AND PS MARINES
TO SMCR UNITS. THE FOLLOWING GUIDANCE APPLIES:
A. NPS MARINES WHO HAVE COMPLETED ALL PHASES OF IADT, TO
INCLUDE PRIMARY MILITARY OCCUPATIONAL SKILL (MOS) TRAINING, ARE
AVAILABLE FOR ACTIVATION/MOBILIZATION AND DEPLOYMENT WITH THEIR
RESPECTIVE UNITS.
B. NPS MARINES SCHEDULED TO COMPLETE STANDARD IADT (BASIC
TRAINING IMMEDIATELY FOLLOWED BY MCT AND MOS TRAINING) WILL EXECUTE
THEIR ASSIGNED TRAINING TRACK SCHEDULE. UPON COMPLETION OF IADT,
NPS MARINES WILL RETURN TO THEIR SMCR UNIT, BE JOINED UNDER THE
REPORTING UNIT CODE (RUC) FOR WHICH THEY WERE RECRUITED, AND BE
ACTIVATED AS REQUIRED.
C. NPS MARINES ENLISTED UNDER THE I/IADT PROGRAM WILL NOT BE
ACTIVATED UNDER MOBILIZATION AUTHORITY UNTIL COMPLETION OF THE BASIC
TRAINING PHASE (RECRUIT TRAINING) OF I/IADT. UPON COMPLETION OF THE
BASIC TRAINING PHASE, NPS MARINES WILL RETURN TO THEIR SMCR UNIT, BE
JOINED UNDER THE REPORTING UNIT CODE (RUC) FOR WHICH THEY WERE
RECRUITED, AND WILL BE ACTIVATED IOT CONDUCT MCT AND MOS TRAINING.
PER REF A, THESE MARINES WILL NOT BE AVAILABLE FOR DEPLOYMENT OCONUS
UNTIL THEY COMPLETE MOS TRAINING AND MCT. AT UNIT COMMANDER
DISCRETION, THESE MARINES MAY, PARTICIPATE IN PREDEPLOYMENT TRAINING
WITH THEIR UNITS PRIOR TO ATTENDING ACCELERATED FOLLOW-ON MOS
TRAINING. SITE SUPPORT STAFFS WILL IDENTIFY I/IADT REQUIREMENTS TO
MARFORRES G3 TRAINING VIA THE APPRORIATE MSC. MARFORRES G3 TRAINING
WILL COORDINATE WITH TECOM AND CMC(RAP) FOR SCHOOL SEAT SCHEDULING/
SLATING ASSIGNMENTS. MARFORRES G3 TRAINING WILL REQUEST ACCELERATED
ASSIGNMENT VIA COMMARFORLANT AND TECOM G-7 FOR ALLOCATION OF
APPROPRIATION DATA. ONCE INITIAL MOS TRAINING AND MCT HAVE BEEN
COMPLETED, THE MARINE WILL RETURN TO HIS/HER UNIT FOR POTENTIAL
DEPLOYMENT.
D. ALL PS MARINES POSSESS A PRIMARY MOS AND ARE QUALIFIED
FOR OCONUS DEPLOYMENT. THERFORE, PS MARINES JOINED TO AN SMCR UNIT
ARE SUBJECT TO UNIT ACTIVATION TO INCLUDE PS NEW JOINS NOT
CONSIDERED AN MOS MATCH AND THOSE SCHEDULED FOR, BUT NOT YET
ATTENDING, FORMAL SCHOOLS ASSOCIATED WITH THE PS TRAINING ASSIGNMENT
(PSTA) PROGRAM. UNIT COMMANDERS MAY EXERCISE THEIR DISCRETION TO
RETRAIN PS MARINES VIA PSTA IOT FILL UNIT T/O REQUIREMENTS WITH MOS
QUALIFIED MARINES PRIOR TO DEPLOYMENT.
E. MARINES ATTENDING FORMAL SCHOOLS AT TIME
OF UNIT ACTIVATION NOTIFICATION WILL BE EXEMPT FROM UNIT ACTIVATION
WHILE IN TRAINING BUT SUBJECT TO MOBILIZATION UPON COMPLETION OF
TRAINING AND RETURN TO THEIR SMCR UNIT.
F. ACTIVATED SMCR UNITS WILL COORDINATE FUNDING FOR
ACTIVITIES ASSOCIATED WITH REQUIRED I/IADT WITH MARFORRES G3
SCHOOLS COORDINATOR. MARFORRES WILL COORDINATE TRACKING OF THE
NUMBER/COST OF I/IADT MARINES SENT FOR MCT/MOS TRAINING WHILE
MOBILIZED.
