GENTEXT/REMARKS/1. UNITS WILL RECEIVE A DIARY FEEDBACK REPORT (DFR) WITH A SELECT GRADE DATE OF 1 AUGUST 2014 FOR EACH MARINE TO BE PROMOTED. THE SELECT GRADE RANK, SENIORITY NUMBER, AND BOARD YEAR WILL BE LISTED ON THE "GRAD" SCREEN IN THE MCTFS.
2. UPON RECEIPT OF THIS MARADMIN AND POSTING OF A SELECT GRADE ON THE DFR, BUT NOT PRIOR TO THE 1ST OF AUGUST 2014, COMMANDERS WILL EFFECT THE PROMOTION OF SELECTED MARINES PER PAR 5100 OF REF A. CITE THIS MARADMIN AS AUTHORITY FOR PROMOTION.
3. COMMANDERS ARE REMINDED THAT REF B REQUIRES THAT MARINES IN THE GRADE OF GUNNERY SERGEANT AND ABOVE WHO HAVE SERVED AT LEAST 18 YEARS MUST HAVE 2 QUALIFYING YEARS (50 POINTS PER YEAR) BEFORE BEING ELIGIBLE TO TRANSFER TO THE RESERVE RETIRED LIST AT THE NEXT HIGHER GRADE. BEFORE DELIVERING APPOINTMENT CERTIFICATES TO MARINES IN THIS CATEGORY, COMMANDERS MUST ENSURE EACH MARINE HAS SUFFICIENT OBLIGATED SERVICE REMAINING ON THEIR RESERVE END OF CURRENT CONTRACT TO ENABLE THEM TO SERVE AT LEAST 2 YEARS OR UNTIL SERVICE LIMITS IN THE GRADE TO WHICH PROMOTED. IF THE MARINE REFUSES TO EXTEND OR REENLIST TO HAVE SUFFICIENT OBLIGATED SERVICE, INFORM CMC (MMPR-2) OF THE MARINE'S REFUSAL.
4. COMMANDERS ARE REMINDED OF THEIR INHERENT RESPONSIBILITIES IN THE ENLISTED PROMOTION SYSTEM. THOROUGHLY REVIEW THE RECORD OF EACH SELECTED MARINE PRIOR TO DELIVERY OF THE CERTIFICATE OF APPOINTMENT TO ENSURE THE MARINE HAS CONTINUED TO MAINTAIN THE HIGH STANDARDS OF PROFESSIONAL AND PERSONAL PERFORMANCE WHICH LED TO SELECTION. YOU ARE ENJOINED TO REVIEW PAR 1200.4, 1204, AND 3107 OF REF A. UPON COMPLETION OF THE REVIEW OF APPLICABLE RECORDS, IF THE COMMANDER'S INTENT IS TO DELAY OR REVOKE THE PROMOTION OF A SELECTED MARINE, REF A PROVIDES SPECIFIC GUIDANCE AND REPORTING INSTRUCTIONS.
5. THE NUMBERS LISTED IN PAR 6 INDICATE THE SENIORITY NUMBER PROMOTED THE PREVIOUS MONTH AND THE TOTAL NUMBER TO BE PROMOTED FOR THE CURRENT MONTH. HOWEVER, THE NUMBERS MAY NOT ALWAYS ADD UP. THIS IS DUE TO MARINES SELECTED NONCOMPETITIVELY (WO SELECTS) WHO ARE ASSIGNED A SENIORITY NUMBER WITH AN ALPHA LETTER, MARINES WHO ARE DISCHARGED, AND MARINES IN A PROMOTION RESTRICTION STATUS. TO AVOID ERRONEOUS PROMOTIONS OF SNCOS, IT IS IMPERATIVE THAT COMMANDERS FOLLOW THE GUIDANCE IN PAR 1 AND ONLY PROMOTE MARINES WITH A SELECT GRADE DATE IN THE MCTFS.
