GENTEXT/REMARKS/1. Per Refs (A), (B) and (C) the Secretary of the Navy approved the FY16 Enlisted to Warrant Officer (Recruiter) Selection Board report. The below-named personnel has been selected for appointment to Chief Warrant Officer (CWO2):
Name SMOS MCC RUC
Barnes, Mark S. 4810 912 85001
2. In the event the selectee chooses not to accept the appointment, the selectee must submit a letter of declination via their chain of command, to include a general officer level endorsement, to MCRC ON-E prior to appointment. A Marine who declines appointment shall be treated as if he or she had not been considered and recommended for appointment. If the commander's intent is to delay or remove a selected Marine's appointment, ref (A) provides specific guidance.
3. The commanding officer will notify those applicants whose names are not listed in paragraph 1 of their non-selection. Reasons for non-selection is not divulged by selection board members.
4. The WO selectee is slated to be appointed 1 Feb 2016. The WO selectee will attend the active duty Warrant Officer Basic Course (WOBC). By separate orders from the Commandant of The Marine Corps (CMC) (Code MM), the selectee will be ordered to report to the Commanding General, Marine Corps Combat Development Command (MCCDC) to attend the WOBC at The Basic School (TBS) which is scheduled to convene on 15 Jan 2016. The selectee must report no earlier than 0800 on 15 Jan 2016 and no later than 2359 on 18 Jan 2016. Refs (D) and (E) define the differences in Duty Under Instructions (TEMINS), Temporary Additional Duty (TAD), Temporary Duty Under Instructions (DUINS), and reassignment orders in relation to per diem and other allowances. It is requested that any selectee with more than 30 days between WOBC graduation and follow-on school be sent TAD to TBS. This reduces the administrative hardship on TBS as well as the selectee. The report date to the WOBC was modified in order to effectively screen selectees and ensure they meet appointment and training standards per ref (A) prior to appointment.
5. Check-in procedures and welcome aboard information for WOBC will be posted on the TBS website upon release of this message. The package will contain important information concerning the upcoming WOBC, including check-in procedures and amplifying comments for this message. Selectees are encouraged to view the TBS website as soon as possible to read welcome aboard information and other coordinating instructions pertaining to WOBC. The TBS point of contact is Capt Longwell, Co I Executive Officer, at cory.longwell(at symbol)usmc.mil or DSN 278-5589, or, commercial (703) 784-5589. The mailing address for TBS is: Commanding Officer, The Basic School, 24164 Belleau Avenue, Quantico, VA 22134. The website address is www.trngcmd.marines.mil/tbs. Students should select "Check-in." Additional information can be found by selecting "Student Material" then choose "FY16 Warrant Officer Basic Company."
6. The selectee must report to TBS with original orders and health and dental records. The Appointment of Acceptance (NAVMC 763) and Identification Card will be completed/issued at WOBC. The selectee should report in appropriate conservative attire (coat/tie for males, suit/skirt for females). Specific information for uniform requirements can be found on the TBS website.
7. Per ref (F) Marines who are currently stationed outside CONUS (OCONUS) and will be attending WOBC under TEMINS orders and elect to leave their families at their current OCONUS duty station are directed to: 1) Complete the appropriate continuing logistical support documentation, 2) complete the appropriate power of attorney forms for their spouse as they will not be returning to the OCONUS location and 3) complete a family care plan that will cover any contingencies that might arise while attending WOBC. Additionally, Marines in this situation should request a delay in family member travel via their chain of command to HQMC (MMIB) in order to continue to receive overseas allowances (i.e. Overseas Housing Allowance (OHA), OCONUS Cost of Living Adjustment (COLA), etc.) while attending WOBC. Without this authority, OCONUS COLA and OHA will terminate and BAH entitlement while attending WOBC will be BAH-Transit until reporting to the new PDS. The point of contact is GySgt Lewis at dalton.lewis(at symbol)usmc.mil or DSN 278-9236 or commercial (703) 784-9236. Commanding officers/Inspectors-Instructors issuing permanent change of station, TEMINS, TAD, and Marine Reserve Orders Writing System (ROWS) orders for Marines to attend WOBC will issue a DD Form 214 prior to the Marine executing orders to TBS. DD Form 214s will cover all active duty enlisted service through 31 Jan 2016. Ensure strict compliance with ref (G). Although hard copy DD Form 214s may be signed and issued to the Marine prior to executing orders to TBS, do not certify/publish the Marine Online (MOL)/Document Tracking and Management System (DTMS) and DD Form 214 until confirmation of the individual's appointment in the Marine Corps Total Force System is made. Upon appointment, the MOL/DTMS and DD Form 214 may be certified/published and mandatory distribution of signed hard copies 2 (Official Military Personnel File) and 5 (Dept of Labor) shall be made. If the selectee is found unqualified or is otherwise not appointed for any reason after executing orders to TBS, DTMS and DD Form 214 documents previously generated can be deleted and hard copy DD Forms 214s shall be shredded as appropriate. The following blocks/items shall be standard on all 2016 WOBC DD Form 214s: "8b. IPAC MCB Quantico VA RUC 46252". "12b. 20160131". "15a-c. No" "16. None" "20-20a. No". "23. Discharged". "24. Honorable". "25. MARCORSEPMAN 6404.1" "26. KGM1". "27. N/A". "28. Accept commission or warrant in same branch of service".

8. The selectee must be able to satisfy swim qualification requirements per ref (G), which requires all officers to be a Water Survival-Basic (WS-B) qualified. The WS-B qualification is a requirement for graduation. It is highly encouraged that the selectee make every effort to attain WS-B qualification prior to arrival at TBS. The selectee without immediate access to swim facilities is encouraged to make every effort to attain qualification. Due to the demanding program of instruction, there are limited opportunities for swim qualification while attending the course.
9. Upon arrival at TBS, the selectee must pass the Marine Corps Physical Fitness Test (PFT) with a first class PFT per ref (H) and meet Marine Corps height/weight standards per ref (I). If the selectee does not score a first class PFT during week one of training, the selectee will be dropped from the course. The selectee is also encouraged to practice running the obstacle course with emphasis on rope climbing. Hiking and running in boots and utilities is also recommended. There will be extended field time at the WOBC. The selectee is encouraged to arrive in peak physical condition, due to the rigors of the course.
10. The selectee must arrive having read the book, "Black Hearts" One Platoon's Descent Into Madness In Iraq's Triangle of Death" by Jim Frederick. A writing assessment and discussion will be conducted on the book during the first week of the course.
11. Once the selectee has been in-processed, there will be an appropriate appointment ceremony at 1000 on 1 Feb 2016. Further details will be made available on the TBS website.
12. Commanding officers are required to document by page 11 entry, a permanent WO selectee's acknowledgement of the probationary status of appointment.

A Marine whose appointment is terminated may, upon his or her request, and at the discretion of SECNAV, be enlisted in a grade not lower than that held immediately prior to appointment." Marines selected for the Warrant Officer program will incur a 3-year obligation from the date of appointment.
13. Per ref (H) and prior to appointment, CWO2 (Recruiter) selectee must be found physically qualified for appointment by the Chief, Bureau of Medicine and Surgery (BUMED).

Failure to comply with requirement will delay receipt of the appointment documents at TBS, and may subsequently result in a forfeiture of the date of rank. Commanding officers of a deployed Marine can contact MCRC ON-E to establish arrangements to complete this task, if needed. The date of the physical examinations must be within 24 months prior to appointment. A selectee with a commissioning physical over a year old will submit copies of the current and last year's Preventative Health Assessment in addition to the physical examination.
