GENTEXT/REMARKS/1. SITUATION.
    A. SPECIAL DUTY ASSIGNMENTS (SDA) ARE CHALLENGING AND REWARDING BILLETS THAT ARE ESSENTIAL TO THE RECRUITMENT AND INITIAL TRAINING OF MARINES AND TO THE SECURITY OF SENSITIVE NAVY AND STATE DEPARTMENT FACILITIES. THE HIGH STANDARDS AND WIDE RESPONSIBILITIES OF MARINES SERVING ON SDAS IS EVIDENT IN THE SPECIAL CONSIDERATION ON PROMOTION BOARDS.
    B. THE GREAT DEMAND FOR HIGHLY QUALIFIED SERGEANTS AND STAFF SERGEANTS IN THE OPERATING FORCES, ON SDAS, AND OTHER DEMANDING BILLETS HAS GIVEN THESE MARINES MANY OUTSTANDING OPPORTUNITIES AND CHALLENGING BILLETS TO CHOOSE FROM.
2. MISSION. IN ORDER TO MAINTAIN ANNUAL NEEDS OF SDAS, CMC (MMEA-85) IN COORDINATION WITH MARINE CORPS RECRUITING COMMAND (MCRC), IS MODIFYING THE EXISTING FY11-02 HQMC RECRUITING SCREENING TEAM (HRST) TO SCREEN AND ASSIGN MARINES TO RECRUITING DUTY, DRILL INSTRUCTOR (DI) DUTY, COMBAT INSTRUCTOR (CI) DUTY, AND MARINE CORPS SECURITY FORCES (MCSF) DUTY. THE HQMC SDA SCREENING TEAM (HSST) WILL REPLACE THE EXISTING HRST. THIS ACTION WILL MORE EFFECTIVELY SUPPORT TIMING OF UNIT DEPLOYMENTS AND PROVIDE A GREATER DEPTH OF CHOICES FOR THE INDIVIDUAL MARINE.
3. EXECUTION. THIS MARADMIN MODIFIES INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE FY11-02 HRST THAT HAVE BEEN DISTRIBUTED TO CAREER PLANNERS (CP).
    A. ALL MARINES SELECTED FOR THE HSST WILL CONTINUE TO FILL OUT THE RECRUITING SCREENING CHECKLIST CONTAINED IN REF A.

        1. RECRUITING REQUIREMENTS WILL BE FILLED FIRST. ALL QUALIFIED MARINES REQUESTING RECRUITING NUMBER ONE ON THEIR SDA PREFERENCES WILL BE SELECTED FOR RECRUITING DUTY.
        2. IF RECRUITING REQUIREMENT IS NOT ACHIEVED FROM THAT POOL, MARINES REQUESTING RECRUITING AS THEIR SECOND CHOICE WILL BE SELECTED, AND SO ON UNTIL THE RECRUITING REQUIREMENT IS MET.
        3. THE SAME PROCEDURE WILL BE FOLLOWED TO FILL ALL REMAINING SDAS. THE HSST OIC WILL ANNOUNCE STAFFING PRIORITIES FOR DI, CI, AND MCSF DUTY DURING THE HSST BRIEF.
            A. THIS PROCESS WILL ALLOW CMC(MMEA-85) TO FILL SDA REQUIREMENTS WITH THE MOST QUALIFIED AND ASSIGNABLE MARINE WHILE ALLOWING INDIVIDUALS TO HAVE INPUT ON THE CAREER OPPORTUNITIES BEING PRESENTED.
