GENTEXT/REMARKS/1. The purpose of this MARADMIN is to announce the immediate billet vacancies for First and Second Tour Female Drill Instructors, and solicits applications from qualified Marines.
2. First Tour Female Drill Instructors are vital to the process of making Marines. A Drill Instructor is the first Marine a recruit meets when reporting for basic training. The Drill Instructor’s actions will be emulated by the recruit; therefore, the potential Drill Instructor must possess a high degree of maturity, leadership, judgment and professionalism, and must thoroughly exemplify Marine Corps core values. Screening and recommendation by the Commanding Officer is critical to the assignment process and, combined with the appropriate checklists, are guidelines within which CMC (MMEA) can make the best possible assignment.
3. Marines that have previously completed a successful tour as a Drill Instructor fulfill a number of critical roles. Experience, perspective, and seniority make these Marines optimally suited to serve as Senior Drill Instructors, Chief Drill Instructors, Drill Master, Drill Instructor School Instructors, and in other senior leadership roles at one of the Marine Corps Recruit Depots (MCRD). Additionally, these Marines serve as mentors for future Marine and Naval Officers while serving as Instructors at Marine Corps Officer Candidate School (OCS), Officer Training Command Newport (OTCN), Assistant Marine Officer Instructors (AMOI), United Stated Naval Academy (USNA), Naval Academy Preparatory School (NAPS), US Merchant Marine Academy, and Naval Chaplaincy School. The unique responsibilities associated with these critical duties distinguish these Marines from those serving on an initial tour as a Drill Instructor.
