GENTEXT/REMARKS/1. Purpose. This MARADMIN provides detailed instructions regarding the execution of the Officer Candidates School (OCS) summer augmentation program. Ref (a) designates Commanding General, Training and Education Command (CG, TECOM) as the executive agent for the development and implementation of the OCS summer augmentation program and policy.

2.a. Although OCS is staffed with sufficient personnel to meet the steady state of student throughput, it cannot support peak demands when OCS experiences its largest inventory of candidates. To meet its mission during these peak training periods, OCS requires augmentation of its permanent staff. Fulfilling this requirement solely from TECOM and Marine Corps Base Quantico (MCBQ) tenant commands is not supportable. A reduction in the total number of Marines who possess the Additional Military Occupational Specialty (AMOS) 0911, drill instructor (DI) comprising Quantico-based organizations and the National Capitol Region (NCR), requires an institutional approach to accomplish this annual requirement.
2.b. In accordance with ref (b), Marines possessing the AMOS of 0911 are assigned to various Quantico-based organizations and the NCR for the purpose of augmenting OCS during the peak season. Marine Staff Sergeants and Gunnery Sergeants who possess the AMOS of 0911 are eligible for consideration.
