GENTEXT/REMARKS/1. This message initiates the FY23 Headquarters Marine Corps (HQMC) Special Duty Assignment (SDA) Selection Team (HSST) screening process. HQMC aims to select and assign the most qualified and capable Marines to duties as Recruiter, Drill Instructor, and Marine Security Guard (MSG) Detachment Commander.
2. Eligible Marines. MMEA will release the list of Marines that meet the criteria for assignment to SDA via the Total Force Retention System (TFRS). The identified Marines must be screened by Commanding Officers, utilizing the instructions and checklists available per reference (a).
3. Submission Guidelines. Commands will submit completed SDA packages on all identified Marines to Manpower Management Enlisted Assignments (MMEA) electronically via a TFRS SDA Reenlistment Extension Lateral Move (RELM) request no later than 30 April 2022. Each package will include, at a minimum, the following items:
3.a. Applicable Screening Checklists and Financial Worksheet, per reference (a). All forms are available via TFRS.
3.b. Records of disciplinary actions in Marine’s service record.
3.c. Chain of command RELM comments and recommendations.
3.d. Security Clearance Eligibility Letter.
4. Checklists must be completed for Marines pertaining to the Marine’s grade.
4.a. Corporals and Sergeants: Recruiting Duty and Drill Instructor Duty checklists are required.
4.b. Staff Sergeants and Staff Sergeant selects: Recruiting Duty, Drill Instructor Duty, and MSG Detachment Commander checklists are required.
4.c. Gunnery Sergeants: MSG Detachment Commander Duty checklists are required.
5. Marines with no desire to be screened for assignment must submit a RE-3O RELM via TFRS no later than 30 April 2022, with the following items.
5.a. NAVMC 11537 pages 1 and 5-6. Page 1 of NAVMC 11537 must have the following remarks in section 32: “SNM has been informed of being selected on the Fiscal Year 2023 HQMC Special Duty Assignment Selection Team is refusing to extend or reenlist to execute SDAorders. SNM has been counseled in regards to the ramifications of being issued a reenlistment code of RE-3O (DCC AY). SNM understands once assigned an RE-3O, they are no longer eligible for promotion, reenlistment, commissioning or warrant officer programs, special pay, education programs, or involuntary separation pay.”
6. For Marines found not qualified for SDA, Commanders will provide source documentation of disqualifying criteria and estimated return date to a qualified status to determine SDA class assignment and retention accurately. Examples include Medical Officer prognosis letter for projected date of SDA assignability. These legal documents conflict with SDA class dates, page 11 entries for assignment to Body Composition Program, or PFT/CFT failure. Unit Diary entries must be reflected in Marine Corps Total Force System for the disqualifying status to determine disqualification.
7. Marines not directed for HSST screening but who want to volunteer for SDA are encouraged to continue to submit applications per paragraph 3.
8. HSST members will screen electronic packages, and assign qualified Marines to available SDA classes. During the screening, HSST members make SDA class assignments are made on a “first-come, first-serve” basis per each Marine’s qualifications, command recommendations, and remaining SDA vacancies upon receipt of the SDA package.
9.a. Final assignments are announced via separate correspondence, and a by-name list is published via TFRS in August 2022.
9.b. Upon return of the approved RELM with a designated class assignment to the unit, Marines will have no more than 15 days to accept the obligated service. Those Marines that decline to gain the obligated service necessary for their assignment to an SDA will be issued a RE-3O reenlistment code per references (c) and (d).
10. Commanders must recertify Marines between 60 and 45 days before their SDA class report date. Failure to properly rescreen Marines for SDA will result in a determination of noncompliance per reference (e).
11. Release authorized by MajGen Michael J. Borgschulte, Director, Manpower Management Division.//
