GENTEXT/REMARKS/1.  Per reference (a), in order to meet Reserve manpower goals, Reserve Gunnery Sergeants (GySgts)/1stSgts desiring promotion to 1stSgt/SgtMaj must comply with procedures unique for selection to this grade.
    a. Eligible GySgts and 1stSgts will submit an Administrative Action (AA) Form (NAVMC 10274) addressed to the Reserve Affairs (RA) SgtMaj indicating their top 5 choices of available SMCR 1stSgt and SgtMaj billets in which they are willing and able to serve.  Further guidance on the AA Form is provided in paragraph 4.  All attempts to assign Marines to one of their choices will be made, however, in all cases, assignments will be made based on the needs of the Marine Corps.  Billet assignment choices are due to the Reserve Affairs (RA) SgtMaj by 1 March 2019.
    b. Promotion allocations are made based on current available and potential open billet identification codes (BICs), therefore, failure to accept assignment to a specified billet may result in revocation of selection to 1stSgt or SgtMaj and involuntary transfer to the Individual Ready Reserve (IRR).  If eligible GySgts are not selected to 1stSgt and meet the eligibility criteria for their Primary Military Occupational Specialty (PMOS), they will be considered for selection to MSgt within their PMOS.  Additionally, if a GySgt or 1stSgt is selected to the next grade and serving on Active Duty For Operational Support (ADOS) orders, they will be required to request drop from ADOS orders effective 30 days prior to assuming the assigned billet resulting from the SMCR-IRR SNCO promotion board.
    c. Reference (d) explains the latest IDT travel reimbursement policy and is expected to continue during FY19.  Eligible 1stSgts and SgtsMaj should familiarize themselves with the contents of reference (d) for the purposes of selecting potential billet assignments.
    d. Specific billet assignments for selected 1stSgts and SgtsMaj will be released under a separate MARADMIN after the promotion board results are published.  The initial tour length will be 3 years for new selectees.  Each selectee is required to obtain sufficient time with the appropriate Reserve End of Current Contract to cover the initial assignment.
