Meritorious Promotion

Post  Michael Hobbar on Sat Dec 11, 2010 3:19 pm

Marines sometimes show action above and beyond the call of duty. Sometimes the brass doesn't always see it, but the Marine Corps wants to honor those who served their duty. If you feel any Marine (or yourself) rates an award or commendation, make a thread here.

For Meritorious Promotions:

Combat Meritorious Promotion Program.

Commanding generals (Admin) may award combat meritorious promotions to Private First Class (E-2) through Sergeant (E-5) in numbers that do not exceed the quarterly meritorious promotion allocations established by the Marine Corps Commandant's (Admin) Office. In the cases of Sergeants (E-5) and Staff Sergeants (E-6), commanding generals make recommendations to the Commandant's (Admin) office who approve or disapprove the recommendations for combat meritorious promotion based on meritorious action and performance in combat or performance under combat conditions.

Marines recommended for a combat meritorious promotion must have demonstrated outstanding leadership to a degree rarely attained by Marines of equal grade. Such leadership performance should justify the Marine being advanced in grade ahead of all other Marines of the same grade, regardless of TIG or TIS. Determination of eligibility for promotion will be based on the command’s recommendation, combat performance, and past military record.

The recommendation for a combat meritorious promotion must be submitted within one year of the meritorious action and performance in combat or under combat conditions.

Non-combat Meritorious Promotion Program.
Commanders may submit recommendations for non-combat meritorious promotion based on a single meritorious act to the Marine Corps Commandant (Admin).

Examples of acts that may qualify under the provisions of the Non-Combat Meritorious Promotion Program are:

* The winner of a national or higher level marksmanship match (e.g., the National Trophy Individual Rifle Match; the National Services Rifle Championship; the National Pistol Championship.)
* The winner of individual marksmanship matches in the Olympic Games, Pan-American Games, or International Shooting Union Matches.
* The invention of a weapon or device, or the development of a new technique/process which is of Marine Corps-wide significance and produces a substantial savings in time and money on a continuing basis.
* Commanding generals may submit a recommendation for meritorious promotion to the grade of SSgt for the squad leader of the winning annual rifle squad (super squad)

Criteria for Meritorious Recommendations. Commanders, in their determination of qualifications for meritorious promotions, are guided by, but not limited to, the following:

* Marines must have completed the required PME for the grade to which being recommended.
* The Marine’s performance of duty, in comparison with all known Marines of the same grade without regard to MOS/OccFld, must be to a significant degree superior to that of their peers in order to merit promotion over other qualified Marines in that grade, regardless of TIG.
* The level and type of duty performed within the individual’s MOS/OccFld, as well as outside the MOS/OccFld, must be clearly superior to that of his or her peers.
* Superior performance on unusual assignments that reflects favorably upon the Marine Corps.
