GENTEXT/REMARKS/1.  PURPOSE.  THIS MARADMIN PUBLISHES IMPLEMENTATION GUIDANCE REGARDING RANK AND DATE OF RANK ADJUSTMENTS FOR NEW ENLISTED ACCESSIONS TO THE ACTIVE RESERVE (AR) PROGRAM THROUGHOUT THE REMAINDER OF FY11.
2.  BACKGROUND.  REFERENCE (A) WAS SIGNED ON 6 JUNE 2011, ESTABLISHING A POLICY CHANGE FOR NEW ACCESSIONS ON THE AR PROGRAM. SPECIFICALLY, REFERENCE (A) CANCELS REFERENCE (B), ESTABLISHES POLICY FOR APPROPRIATELY ADJUSTING RANKS IN CONJUNCTION WITH ACCESSION ON THE AR PROGRAM, AND REFERS TO DATE OF RANK ADJUSTMENT CRITERIA PUBLISHED ANNUALLY VIA MARADMIN.
3.  POLICY.  TO KEEP FAITH WITH THOSE MARINES WHO HAD APPLIED AND WERE ALREADY ACCEPTED FOR ACCESSION ON THE AR PROGRAM BY 6 JUNE 2011, THE DATE OF RANK ADJUSTMENT POLICY IDENTIFIED IN REFERENCE (B) APPLIES.  FOR THOSE MARINES WHO APPLIED BUT WERE NOT ACCEPTED ON THE AR PROGRAM UNTIL AFTER 6 JUNE, THE FOLLOWING RANK AND DATE OF RANK ADJUSTMENT POLICIES WILL APPLY, PER REFERENCE (A):
A.  RANK ADJUSTMENTS.  SERGEANTS WITH LESS THAN 4 YEARS ACTIVE DUTY TIME WILL BE ACCESSED AT THE RANK OF CORPORAL.
B.  DATE OF RANK ADJUSTMENTS.
(1) MARINES LATERALLY MOVING TO ANOTHER MOS WILL HAVE A DATE OF RANK EQUAL TO THEIR DATE OF ACCESSION ON THE AR PROGRAM.  THE EXCEPTION IS SERGEANTS REDUCED TO CORPORAL IN CONJUNCTION WITH ACCESSION, WHO WILL HAVE A DATE OF RANK DETERMINED PER SUBPARAGRAPH (4) BELOW.  DIRECTOR, RESERVE AFFAIRS IS THE WAIVER AUTHORITY.
(2) ACTIVE COMPONENT MARINES WILL RETAIN THEIR DATE OF RANK IF ACCESSED WITHIN 90 DAYS OF SEPARATION.
(3) ALL RESERVE COMPONENT CORPORALS AND LANCE CORPORALS, TO INCLUDE THOSE SEPARATED FROM THE ACTIVE COMPONENT 90 DAYS OR MORE, WILL BE ASSIGNED A DATE OF RANK EQUAL TO THEIR DATE OF ACCESSION.
(4) MARINES WHO ARE SERGEANTS AT THE TIME OF APPLICATION AND REDUCED TO CORPORAL IN CONJUNCTION WITH ACCESSION ON THE AR PROGRAM WILL BE ASSIGNED A DATE OF RANK BY CMC (RAP) BASED ON THEIR ACTIVE DUTY POINTS RELATIVE TO INCUMBENT CORPORALS ON THE AR PROGRAM IN THE SAME MOS.  BASED ON THE LINEAL LIST FOR THE RESPECTIVE MOS, THE NEW ACCESSION’S DATE OF RANK WILL BE BETWEEN THE CORPORAL WHO HAS THE NEXT HIGHER AND NEXT LOWER ARMED FORCES ACTIVE DUTY BASE DATE.
(5) MARINES ASSESSED AT THE RANK OF SERGEANT WHO DO NOT REQUIRE A LATERAL MOVE WILL HAVE ONE DAY ADDED TO THEIR EXISTING DATE OF RANK FOR EACH DAY NOT ON ACTIVE DUTY IN GRADE.  FOR EXAMPLE, A SERGEANT WHOSE DATE OF RANK IS 1 FEBRUARY 2010, SEPARATED FROM THE ACTIVE COMPONENT ON 1 OCTOBER 2010, DRILLED WITH THE SMCR FROM 2 OCTOBER 2010 THROUGH 31 AUGUST 2011 AND ACCESSED TO THE AR PROGRAM ON 1 SEPTEMBER 2011 WILL HAVE THEIR DATE OF RANK ADJUSTED TO 17 DECEMBER 2010, CALCULATED AS FOLLOWS:
