GENTEXT/REMARKS./1. Purpose. This MARADMIN announces changes to reference (A) and remains in effect until 30 September 2023 or otherwise stated.
2. Background. Retaining quality, proven Marines in the right PMOS is critical to meet Fleet Marine Force mission requirements. The emergent Force Design 2030 capabilities and evolving retention environment requires Commanders to be actively involved in retention and lateral move efforts. This FY23 SRB plan will change to meet the developing personnel requirements. Other than the changes outlined in section 3, all authorities directed in reference (A) remain in effect. References (B) through (E) contain amplifying information regarding the SRB program.

3.b.2. 72-month Lateral Move (LM) Kicker. Marines with an ECC in FY24 who reenlist under the Early Reenlistment Program are eligible for the 72 Month Lateral Move Kicker upon start of the Early Reenlistment Program, 1 December 2022. Eligibility requirements for the FY24 Cohort Out-Of-Fiscal-Year Early Reenlistment Program remain as outlined in para 3.a of reference (A).
3.b.3. Aviation Maintenance Kicker. Para 3.b.3 of reference (A) currently lists 35 eligible MCCs that rate the Aircraft Maintenance Kicker (AMK). MCC “UCK” is removed from the list and corrected to state “UCL”. Additionally, Lance Corporals in PMOS 6282 are eligible for the AMK.
