GENTEXT/REMARKS/1.  AUTHORITY.  Refs (a) through (h) regulate all Marine Corps officer promotions.  This MARADMIN is the authority for commanding officers to effect promotions.  Per the refs, an officers promotion may not be effected until that officers name appears on a promotion MARADMIN or CMC message.  Appropriate commissions will be mailed to parent commands under separate cover.  Expect 2-3 weeks for delivery.  The commission is not the legal authority to promote and is not required to effect the promotion.  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 Branchs 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.  Due to the recent confirmation of various FY19 officer promotion boards on 30 January 2018 this MARADMIN authorizes the promotion of the below additional officers for February 2018.  This MARADMIN does not cancel, but is in addition to MARADMIN 037/18.
2.  Under the provisions of section 624 of refs (a) and (c), the Secretary of the Navy, acting for the President of the United States, hereby authorizes the promotion of the following named regular officers to the grade indicated.  Rank, pay and allowances are effective from 1 February 2018.

3.  Under the provisions of section 5589 of ref (a), the Secretary of the Navy, acting for the President of the United States, hereby authorizes the promotion of the following named limited duty officers (LDO) to the grade indicated.  Rank, pay, and allowances are effective from 1 February 2018.
Name                            Grade        MCC

William W. Inns III             LtCol        111
Patrick J. Toal                 LtCol        TRG
4.  Delay of Promotion.  Per refs (b) and (h), if the respective commanding officer determines that an officer is not mentally, physically, morally, or professionally qualified for promotion, the promotion shall not be effected.  This includes the physical examination requirement for reserve officers per section 10206 ref (a).  The officer shall be given written notice of the grounds for delay before the effective date of the appointment, unless it is impracticable to do so, in which case the notice shall be given as soon as practicable.  CMC (MMPR-1) must also be notified prior to the effective date of the appointment so that the promotion will not be effected in Marine Corps Total Force System (MCTFS) and administrative action can be initiated.  Refs (a), (b), (c), and (e) contain guidelines for the timely submission of supporting documentation.
5.  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.
6.  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 paragraphs 2 and 3 (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.
7.  For Marine officer promotion matters call Comm (703) 784-9706 or DSN 278-9706.  Email inquiries may be submitted via the Promotion Branchs internet web page at www.Marines.mil.  Email address is OfficerPromotions@usmc.mil.
8.  Release authorized by C. F. Swain, Deputy Director, Manpower Management Division.//
