3. This MARADMIN serves as authority to assign the respective AMOS as listed above. All selectees listed above must request appropriate entries be made into their permanent service records to reflect the appropriate AMOS through their Installation Personnel Administration Centers or command administration offices.
4. Per ref A, Marines applying for an IAP AMOS are highlighting their availability to serve in international affairs and political-military billets when not serving in their primary MOS. Marines who subsequently decline to serve in such billets will have their IAP AMOS administratively withdrawn.
5. Per refs A and C, Marines with a FAO AMOS are required to maintain current minimum Defense Language Proficiency Test (DLPT) scores of 2/2/1+ (FAO) or 1+/1+/1+ (FAS) (Reading/Listening/Speaking) for FASs. Failure to maintain minimum scores will result in administrative withdrawal of the FAO or FAS AMOS.
6. Per ref A, all IAP Marines are required to possess a completed Tier 5 (T-5) Investigation in order to facilitate their integration into MAGTF planning, operations, security cooperation, and intelligence efforts during future assignments within tactical, operational, and strategic-level Marine Corps staffs, joint and combined staffs, and for duty with interagency organizations. Marines who do not have a current T-5 Investigation will submit a request through their Special Security Office immediately. This MARADMIN serves as authority to initiate a T-5 Investigation.
7. Funding for language sustainment training may be available to Marines with the FAO and FAS AMOSs. Submit requests to IAPMarine@usmc.mil.
8. Questions concerning the International Affairs Program can be directed to the POCs listed above.
