GENTEXT/REMARKS/1. Authority. Refs (a) through (h) regulate all Marine Corps officer promotions.

For the purposes of conducting a promotion ceremony, sample commissions and the oath of office can be found in chapter 6 of ref (b) or the Officer Promotion Branch's homepage at www.Marines.mil. Under "Marines/Career," click on "Promotions." Click on "Officer Promotions," look under the "Reference" tab on the right side of the page.

3.  Retirement and Transfer. Officers considering voluntary retirement should review ref (d) for service obligation prior to acceptance of promotion. An officers selection for promotion carries over into the reserve, between AR and SMCR-IRR, and with augmentation into the regular component.
4.  Accepting and Declining Promotion. Any regular or reserve officer who is promoted under the refs is considered to have accepted such promotion on the effective date contained in paragraph 2 (for purposes of date of rank, pay, and allowances in the grade to which promoted). To decline a promotion, an officer is required to submit a letter of declination to CMC (MMPR-1) expressly at the time their command notifies them of their promotion and directs that they begin wearing the insignia of the next higher grade. Any statement or action by the officer which signals their acceptance of the promotion, forever waives their right to decline.
5.  For Marine officer promotion matters call Comm (703)784-9706 or DSN 278-9706. Email address is OfficerPromotions@usmc.mil.
6.  Release authorized by MajGen Craig C. Crenshaw, Director, Manpower Management Division.//
