GENTEXT/REMARKS/1. Per Refs (A), (B) and (C) the Secretary of the Navy approved the FY17 Enlisted to Warrant Officer (Recruiter) Selection Board report. The below-named personnel has been selected for appointment to Chief Warrant Officer (CWO2):
Name SMOS MCC RUC
BENNE, JOSHUA C. 4810 946 85001
CASTRO, JONATHAN 4810 978 83001
KOEHLER, WILLIAM S. 4810 944 84001

2. In the event the selectees choose not to accept the appointment, the selectee must submit a letter of declination via their chain of command, to include a general officer level endorsement, to MCRC ON-E prior to appointment. A Marine who declines appointment shall be treated as if he or she had not been considered and recommended for appointment. If the commanders intent is to delay in order to remove a selected Marines appointment, ref (A) provides specific guidance.
3. The commanding officer will notify those applicants whose names are not listed in paragraph 1 of their non-selection. Reasons for non-selection are not divulged by selection board members.
4. WO selectees are slated to be appointed on or about 1 Feb 2017. WO selectees will attend the active duty Warrant Officer Basic Course (WOBC). By separate orders from the Commandant of The Marine Corps (CMC) (Code MM), the selectee will be ordered to report to the Commanding General, Marine Corps Combat Development Command (MCCDC) to attend the WOBC at The Basic School (TBS) which is scheduled to convene on 30 Jan 2017. Selectees must report no earlier than 0800 on 30 Jan 2017 and no later than 1500 on 30 Jan 2017. Refs (D) and (E) define the differences in Duty Under Instructions (TEMINS), Temporary Additional Duty (TAD), Temporary Duty Under Instructions (DUINS), and reassignment orders in relation to per diem and other allowances. It is requested that any selectee with more than 30 days between WOBC graduation and follow-on school be sent TAD to TBS. This reduces the administrative hardship on TBS as well as the selectee. The report date to the WOBC was modified in order to effectively screen selectees and ensure they meet appointment and training standards per ref (A) prior to appointment.
5. Check-in procedures and welcome aboard information for WOBC will be posted on the TBS website upon release of this message. The package will contain important information concerning the upcoming WOBC, including check-in procedures and amplifying comments for this message. The selectees must view the TBS website as soon as possible to read the welcome aboard information and other coordinating instructions pertaining to WOBC. The TBS point of contact is Capt Day, CO I Executive Officer, at electronic mail (email) sean.p.day(at symbol)usmc.mil or DSN 278-2724 or commercial (703)784-2724. The mailing address for TBS is: Commanding Officer, The Basic School, 24164 Belleau Avenue, Quantico, VA 22134. The website address is www.trngcmd.marines.mil/units/northeast/the-basic-school/. Students should direct their attention to the right hand side of the page and find "Welcome Aboard" under the WOBC drop down menu.
6. Selectees must report to TBS with original orders and health and dental records. The Appointment of Acceptance (NAVMC 763) and Identification Card will be completed/issued at WOBC. Selectees should report in the Service Alpha uniform. Specific information for uniform requirements can be found on the TBS website.
7. Per ref (F) Marines who are currently stationed outside CONUS (OCONUS) and will be attending WOBC under TEMINS orders and elect to leave their families at their current OCONUS duty station are directed to: 1) complete the appropriate continuing logistical support documentation, 2) complete the appropriate power of attorney forms for their spouse as they will not be returning to the OCONUS location and 3) complete a family care plan that will cover any contingencies that might arise while attending WOBC. Additionally, Marines in this situation should request a delay in family member travel via their chain of command to HQMC (MMIB) in order to continue to receive overseas allowances (i.e. Overseas Housing Allowance (OHA), OCONUS Cost of Living Adjustment (COLA), etc.) while attending WOBC. Without this authority, OCONUS COLA and OHA will terminate and BAH entitlement while attending WOBC will be BAH-Transit until reporting to the new PDS. The point of contact is GySgt Lewis at dalton.lewis(at symbol)usmc.mil or DSN 278-9236 or commercial (703)784-9236. Commanding officers/Inspectors-Instructors issuing permanent change of station, TEMINS, TAD, and Marine Reserve Orders Writing System (MROWS) orders for Marines to attend WOBC will issue a DD Form 214 prior to the Marine executing orders to TBS. DD Form 214s will cover all active duty enlisted service through 31 Jan 2017. Ensure strict compliance with ref (G). Although hard copy DD Form 214s may be signed and issued to the Marine prior to executing orders to TBS, do not certify/publish the Marine Online (MOL)/Document Tracking and Management System (DTMS) and DD Form 214 until confirmation of the individuals appointment in the Marine Corps Total Force System is made. Upon appointment, the MOL/DTMS and DD Form 214 may be certified/published and mandatory distribution of signed hard copies 2 (Official Military Personnel File) and 5 (Dept of Labor) shall be made. If the selectee is found unqualified or is otherwise not appointed for any reason after executing orders to TBS, DTMS and DD Form 214 documents previously generated can be deleted and hard copy DD Forms 214s shall be shredded as appropriate. The following blocks/items shall be standard on all 2017 WOBC DD Form 214s: "8b. IPAC MCB Quantico VA RUC 46252". "12b. 20170131". "15a-c. No" "16. None" "20-20a. No". "23. Discharged". "24.
