Prior Service Enlistment Program Marine Corps Part 2

Published by:

It has been a few months since I began the process of accessing from the Active Reserve program into the Active Component, and I wanted to make a quick post about he difficulty I have had since that time.

I was denied seperation from my current component formally with a denied DD368 twice.  I was told to wait until I was within 90 of EAS and was again denied.  I was then told to wait until 45 days prior to my EAS and it was approved.  Keep in mind that when you are a member of the Active Reserve you must seek approval for you seperation directly from the program managers at Reserve Affaris Manpower – 2 (RAM-2).

I am now less than 40 days from EAS and separation and must some how complete all of the required processes including a DD2808 physical that is a MEPS physical, but you can not do this at a MEPS because you are already a member of the military, so you must talk a military hospital into completing this form that they are not suppose to complete.

After I complete this form I must babysit my package through 8 levels of command and then 3 levels of screening in order to be boarded, which only occurs once a month.  So if I am very very lucky I may get my package to the PSEP manager before the July board.  If I am even more lucky I will actually be approved to join the Active Component, even though only 12 Marines have been accessed this year into the PSEP program.

Wish me luck.  I am now preparing for separation in light of the seeming insurmountable administrative mountain of bureaucracy.

USMC Active Reserve Billets

Published by:

The current Active Reserve billets are always changing, due to Marines coming on to the program and leaving the program.

Their are two times a year that the billets are most avaliable, they are October due to promotion failure seperations and January due to calender year movement avaliability.

There is no internet available list of Active Reserve billets.

 

There is a list of MOS’s that are accepting applications which can be found HERE

 

In order to get this list you must contact a Prior Service recruiter that can request the current list.

 

Prior Service Recruiter Phone List

The Rerserve Affairs Manpower – 2 office does randomly publish a MARADMIN with Active Reserve shortages throughout the year but these list are only valid for a mater of weeks due to changing manpower needs.

The published MARADMIN is only for limited tour billets.  This is important because Marines that join to one of these billets will not be guarenteed reenlistment.
