2.a. Be on the Active-Duty List (ADL) of the Marine Corps and have a permanent grade of colonel with a date of rank of 1 July 2021 or earlier.

The below-zone consists of judge advocates with a minimum of twelve months time-in-grade as of the convening date of the board. Officers may review reference (b) and their eligibility for the board on the internet at the officer promotion homepage. The zones are as follows:

4. Board Preparation Guidance. Officers are advised to review MarAdmin 098/22 for guidance regarding submission of information, auditing the Official Military Personnel File (OMPF) and Master Brief Sheet (MBS), and fitness reports prior to the convening date of the board.
4.a. Personal responsibilities. Each officer is personally responsible for ensuring the accuracy and completeness of their OMPF and MBS before the date the board convenes.
4.b. Obtaining and Reviewing the OMPF. The primary and most expeditious means of obtaining and viewing the OMPF and MBS is through OMPF online via Marine Online (MOL). The MBS can also be obtained through the Manpower Managment Records and Performance (MMRP) web site. Refer to reference (c) to determine what documents are appropriate for inclusion in the OMPF.
4.c. OMPF Document Submission Guidelines. Officers are personally responsible for correcting deficiencies, missing information, or illegible documents present in either the OMPF or MBS with CMC (MMRP-20). Per reference (c), ensure any material sent to CMC (MMRP-20) for filing in the OMPF contains full name, grade, and the Electronic Data Interchange Personal Identifier (EDIPI). If the EDIPI is not on the material, then the material might not be filed in the OMPF in time to go before the selection board. For corrections or updates to the Administrative Information Section of the MBS, contact your unit S-1 or Installation Personnel Administration Center (IPAC). For corrections, deficiencies, missing fitness reports and date gaps to the Performance Evaluation Summary section of the MBS, contact (MMRP-30). Officers are reminded that any additions or deletions from their OMPF or MBS within the 12-month window should also be verified to ensure the accuracy and completeness of their record. OMPF documents can be e-mailed as a pdf attachment or OMPF documents can be mailed to CMC (MMRP-20), however, inclusion into the OMPF is substantially faster if the documents are e-mailed. See paragraph 6 (MMRP) for OMPF inquiries and document submission points of contact.
4.d. OMPF Document Submission Timelines. It is imperative that documents submitted to CMC (MMRP-20) for inclusion in the OMPF within 60 days of a selection board be conspicuously marked "contains documents for FY23 Lead Special Trial Counsel of the Marine Corps Selection Board." With the exception of fitness reports, all OMPF documents, must be forwarded to and received by CMC (MMRP-20) at least two weeks prior to the convening date of the selection board in order to allow processing time for the material to be included in the OMPF. Officers are advised that the OMPF and MBS are distributed to the boardroom at least one week before the board convening date. Board-eligible records continue to be updated until the convening date of the board, however, officers are to submit all material no later than two weeks prior to the board.
5. Forwarding Communications to the Board. All eligible officers may submit correspondence to their respective promotion selection board via U.S. Mail, next-day delivery services (FedEx, UPS, etc.), email, or fax. U.S. Mail is not delivered directly to Harry Lee Hall. Therefore, anticipate a 2-3 day lag time for further delivery to Harry Lee Hall. Commercial next-day carriers deliver directly to Harry Lee Hall, excluding weekends and holidays. Officers with the capability to scan may send their correspondence via e-mail directly to the organizational mailbox: firstname.lastname@example.org. Ensure the e-mail subject line reads "correspondence to the FY23 Lead Special Trial Counsel of the Marine Corps Selecton Board." Contact information is located in paragraph 6.a of this MARADMIN.
5.a. Officer Correspondence. All eligible officers may, if desired, submit correspondence to the President of the Board. The correspondence should include only those matters deemed important in the consideration of an officers record. OMPF materials sent directly to the board president will not become part of an officer'sOMPF. Although officers may submit any material they deem important, officers should contact CMC (MMRP-30) before submitting fitness reports and CMC (MMRP-20) for any other OMPF materials. This will ensure that an officer's OMPF is appropriately updated. The following guidelines apply:
5.a.1. Correspondence must be submitted under signed cover letter by the eligible officer with the material for the board’s consideration listed as enclosures (a sample cover letter is available at the officer promotion homepage). Material submitted without a signed cover letter by the eligible officer will not be submitted to the board.
5.a.2. The cover letter must be addressed to the President, FY23 Lead Special Trial Counsel of the Marine Corps Selecton Board (see paragraph 6.a for complete address), and signed with a pen by the eligible officer.
5.a.3. Pursuant to Title 10, U.S.C. Section 614(b) eligible officers are personally responsible for ensuring CMC (MMPR-1) has physically or electronically received their personal correspondence to the President of the board NLT 2359 Eastern Standard Time (EST), 10 calendar days prior to the board convene date of their board in order to be considered. Correspondence arriving after 2359 (EST) 10 calendar days before the board convene date WILL NOT be accepted or submitted to the board. All personal correspondence for the following boards must be received NLT 2359 (EST) on the due date annotated below:
Selection To Component Convening Date Due Date
LSTC USMC 7 July 2022 27 June 2022
5.b. Communications or memorandums of recommendation from other parties on behalf of officers eligible for consideration will not be provided to the board unless forwarded as an enclosure to a signed memorandum to the board from the officer being considered IAW paragraphs 5.a.1-3 of this MARADMIN.
5.c. Verification of Receipt of Correspondence. Correspondence sent via USMC email will receive an e-mail confirmation. The e-mail confirmation receipt is the official notification that CMC (MMPR-1) has received your update material.
5.d. Request for Non-Selection. Officers eligible for promotion who plan to separate or retire may correspond with the president of the board requesting they not be selected. Any officer who writes such a letter to the board will still be considered for selection. Requests for non-selection constitute officer correspondence and thus are subject to the guidance provided in paragraphs 5 thru 5.b. of this MARADMIN.
5.e. Classified Reports. Eligible officers whose records contain classified reports should notify CMC, Officer Promotion Section (MMPR-1) as soon as possible. Notification should include the Marines' full name, EDIPI, grade, occasion, and dates of the report(s). CMC (MMPR-1) will confirm the existence of the report(s) and ensure its consideration by the board.
