POC/MPO-60/COMM 703-784-9358/9585//
GENTEXT/RMKS/1.  Purpose.  This MARADMIN cancels MARADMIN 300/14.  In accordance with (IAW) REF A, this MARADMIN provides guidance for the activation of Reserve Component (RC) Marines under §12304a, Title 10, U.S. Code, following a request for Federal assistance in response to a major disaster or emergency within the United States.  Requests for Federal assistance will come with little warning.  As required, the Marine Corps must rapidly mobilize RC units and personnel IAW this MARADMIN in order to respond to threats in the Homeland.
2.  Background
2.A.  Per REF B, if a Governor requests Federal assistance in responding to a major disaster or emergency (as those terms are defined in §102 of REF C) the Secretary of Defense (SECDEF) may, without the consent of the member affected, order any unit, and any member not assigned to a unit organized to serve as a unit, of the Marine Corps Reserve to active duty for a continuous period of not more than 120 days to respond to the Governor’s request.
2.B.  IAW REF D, and as implemented in REF E, SECDEF delegated §12304a activation authority to the Secretary of the Navy (SECNAV) for mobilizations of 30 days or less.  SECNAV’s delegated authority may be exercised only after:
2.B.1.  A Governor requests Federal assistance in responding to a declaration of a major disaster or emergency;
2.B.2.  When directed by the President in support of (ISO) a request for assistance (RFA) from a primary Federal department or agency;  or,
2.B.3.  A request for forces (RFF) from the responsible Combatant Commander.
2.C.  A Commander’s Immediate Response Authority to save lives, prevent human suffering, or mitigate great property damage within the United States is set forth in REF A.  Commanders shall comply with REF A, this MARADMIN, and any supplemental direction provided by higher headquarters.
3.  Process.  Upon SECDEF or SECNAV decision to invoke §12304a authority pursuant to REF A or REF D, activation process is as follows:
3.A.  Selected Marine Corps Reserve (SMCR) unit
3.A.1.  In response to Joint Staff validated RFA or RFF, SMCR units may be identified by Deputy Commandant Plans, Policies, and Operations (DC PPO) (POC) for sourcing through the Global Force Management (GFM) process.
3.A.2.  Upon sourcing determination, §12304a activation packages prepared by DC PPO are submitted to SECNAV.
3.A.3.  DC PPO (POC) nominated SMCR units, along with the Secretarial approved §12304a activation orders, are submitted to the Joint Staff for ordering by SECDEF via the Global Force Management Allocation Plan.
3.A.4.  Deputy Commandant Manpower and Reserve Affairs (DC MRA), after consulting with Assistant Secretary of the Navy for Manpower and Reserve Affairs (ASN(MRA)) and other Headquarters Marine Corps agencies, releases any additional manpower policy guidance specific to the contingency to include Crisis Code and Unique Identifier.
3.A.5.  DC PPO, in coordination with Commander, Marine Forces Command (COMMARFORCOM), directs Commander, Marine Forces Reserve (COMMARFORRES) to activate designated units via naval message, after the appropriate DoD decision.
3.A.6.  IAW this message and amplifying guidance provided by DC MRA, the activation process at appropriate home training centers (HTC) is completed in preparation for follow-on movement.
3.A.7.  A USMCR commanding officer activation report similar to the example within REF F will be released via naval message to announce activation is complete.
3.B.  Marine Emergency Preparedness Liaison Officer (EPLO).  REF A establishes Marine EPLO missions and functions, command relationships, and request and activation procedures.
3.B.1.  IAW REF F and REF G, USNORTHCOM and USINDOPACOM requests EPLO activation through its USMC service component, Marine Forces North (MARFORNORTH) and Marine Forces Pacific (MARFORPAC).  EPLOs are IMAs for the routing of Marine Resource Order Writing Service (MROWS) approvals.
3.B.2.  MARFORNORTH/MARFORPAC submits §12304a activation request to DC MRA (Manpower Management Integration Branch (MMIB-2)) for SECNAV decision to involuntarily activate the individual EPLO Marines.
3.B.3.  After SECNAV authorizes activation, DC MRA (MMIB-2) initiates and fund approves MROWS orders.
3.B.4.  The Marine’s parent command will authenticate the MROWS orders.  COMMARFORRES authenticates MROWS orders for SMCR and IRR Marines and OpSponsors authenticate MROWS orders for IMA Marines.
3.B.5.  MARFORNORTH/MARFORPAC provides reporting instructions relating to their duties.  The Marine Corps Operations Center is notified upon completion of EPLO activation by DC MRA (MMIB-2) to DC PPO (POC).
3.B.6.  Unless prohibited by SECDEF, an EPLO may volunteer under Title 10 U.S.C., §12301(d) authority in lieu of activation under §12304a to allow for a rapid response during the initial phases of the event.  Funding source remains the same but benefits may differ.
3.C.  Individual Augments (IA).
3.C.1.  Global sourcing requests cannot be considered by DC MRA due to rapid deployment required to prevent loss of life and nonapplicability of dwell.
3.C.2.  COMMARFORNORTH/COMMARFORPAC should consider using on hand Active Component (AC) and Active Reserve (AR) personnel to meet immediate IA requirements.
3.C.3.  RC personnel can be sourced from the Individual Ready Reserve (IRR) or Individual Mobilization Augmentee (IMA) program with the involuntary activation authority residing with SECNAV and SECDEF.  Send requests to activate RC individual personnel to DC MRA (MMIB-2) via Marine Corps Force Augmentation Process System (MCFAPS).  DC MRA (MMIB-2) initiates and fund approves MROWS orders for IMA and IRR Marines, and the RC Marines’ parent command authenticates orders.
3.C.4.  DC MRA may order a Marine reservist to active duty with the Marine’s consent pursuant to §12301(d).  COMMARFORRES coordinates voluntary requests to activate and forwards requests utilizing the process within para 3.C.3.  If individual SMCR volunteers are approved by COMMARFORRES and authorized by SECNAV to activate, DC MRA (MMIB-2) will coordinate with COMMARFORRES(G-1) to have the SMCR Marine’s parent command initiate MROWS orders and DC MRA (MMIB-2) will fund approve.  Parent command will authenticate.
4.  Actions.
4.A.  DC PPO.
4.A.1.  IAW REF F, release CMC notice of intent to activate ISO DSCA that includes applicable command relationships.
4.A.2.  ICW MARFORCOM, determine appropriate sourcing for identified requirements and coordinate with SECNAV for activation approval if RC unit sourcing identified.
4.A.3.  Coordinate with DC MRA and Deputy Commandant, Programs and Resources (DC PR) for feasibility of support for funding requirements.
4.A.4.  If required, coordinate SECDEF waiver of 30 day notification for mobilizations in excess of 30 days.
4.B.  DC PR.
4.B.1.  Coordinate with DC PPO for submission of budget requests.
4.B.2.  Provide activation funding controls to DC MRA prior to approval of MROWS.
4.B.3.  Issue Special Interest Code (SIC) guidance for proper accounting of requirements.
4.C.  DC MRA.
4.C.1.  Coordinate funding letter requirements for associated appropriation data with DC PR.
4.C.2.  Confirm type activation status, crisis event code, associated Unique Identifier, and PERSTEMPO start date.
4.C.3.  Ensure coordination is conducted with MARFORPAC and MARFORNORTH regarding the expected or planned RC IA mobilizations either in a voluntary or involuntary status.
4.C.4.  Generate mobilization Monitored Command Codes (MCC) and Reporting Unit Codes (RUC) if needed.
4.C.5.  Release naval message that consolidates any additional contingency specific activation information.
4.C.6.  As required, act on delegated SECNAV authorities for volunteer mobilization orders under §12301(d) for the initial 72 hour Immediate Response Authority period IOT facilitate a rapid time-sensitive response.  If SECDEF authorizes DSCA for a major disaster or emergency, the Service retains the authority to determine, based on operational and fiscal requirements, the type Title 10 voluntary or involuntary authority for MROWS orders to be utilized to support the DSCA event.  §12301(d) authorities can be used for pre-positioning activities as part of the Immediate Response period, as well as carried forward through the actual DSCA.
4.C.7.  Should a §12304a request for Marine EPLO activations be submitted, DC MRA (MMIB-2) will coordinate with SECNAV as requested by MARFORNORTH or MARFORPAC.
4.D.  COMMARFORCOM.
4.D.1.  IAW REF A, coordinate the identification and sourcing of applicable RC capabilities for execution of DSCA missions as assigned.
4.D.2.  IAW REF F, process and forward to PPO (POC) all requisite MARFORRES provided unit mobilization data.

5.G.  For RC personnel with 16 or more years of total active duty service, refer to REF K for policies and procedures.  However, due to the rapid nature of a DSCA event, those RC Marines requiring High Active Duty Time waivers and Waivers of Sanctuary Eligibility will not be considered, unless the DC MRA has already acted upon a prior request and the future period of duty is already contained within the approved timeframe of the prior High Active Duty Time request.
5.H.  Per REF B, in no case shall mobilization exceed 120 days, to include individual skills training required for employment, and leave.  Extensions in excess of 120 days for the purpose of using earned leave cannot be authorized.
5.I.  In order to streamline activation where possible and IAW REF E, dental screenings ICW activation of Selected Reserve Marines are not required.  However, current Physical Health Assessments (PHA) are required.  MROWS hardholds for expired PHA will not be lifted.  Current PHA must be reflected in Marine Corps Total Force System (MCTFS) IOT activate Marines.  For Marines known to be not deployable, disqualifying issues must be resolved before involuntary orders can be issued.
5.J.  MCTFS Actions.

The Marines are always ready to invade. Including the United States itself.

I wouldn't make too much of this. All the military branches have such plans to invade the States or to respond to major hurricanes like Katrina or a 9/11 event.

Perhaps someone could discover what significant changes have been made to this planning document from the last version of it, the one that this document replaces. Given that this includes pay incentives and benefit packages boilerplate, I'm not sure that it signifies a whole lot other than Katrina or 9/11-type uses of Marines in a civilian emergency.

Perhaps we could review the use of Marine forces during Katrina.

Marines.mil: Marines head home after hurricane hitch
ST. BERNARD PARISH, La. -- On Aug. 29, Hurricane Katrina made landfall and left a path of destruction along the Gulf Coast from the panhandle of Florida to the Mississippi Delta.

As the nation realized the scale of the disaster, the Marines of Special Purpose Marine Air-Ground Task Force St. Bernard, named for the Louisiana parish that would become the focus of efforts, were preparing to respond.

Aircraft and Marines from Marine Heavy Helicopter Squadron 461 deployed to Pensacola, Fla., to begin rescue and evacuation missions.

Reserve Marines from Dallas and Fort Worth, Texas; Jackson and Gulfport, Miss.; Bessemer and Huntsville, Ala.; Chattanooga, Tenn., and Jacksonville Fla., began to converge on the Gulf Coast with helicopters, Assault Amphibian Vehicles, 7-Ton Trucks, Humvees, communications gear and hundreds of helping hands.

As the reserve elements landed in the region, the Marines and Sailors of the 24th Marine Expeditionary Unit command element, 1st Battalion, 8th Marine Regiment, and MEU Service Support Group 24, flew from North Carolina to marry up with their equipment to provide humanitarian assistance and disaster relief.

I can see photos in which an amphibious vehicle almost sank itself, trying to get to soggy land. And a tiny military bulldozer parked. And a couple of Marines paddling sadly in a canoe to search homes on the far side of a canal. It doesn't look all that effective as invasions of America go. Certainly not as exciting as Invasion USA starring Mr. Chuck Norris.

I've read that Marines were training for Pacific conditions and wet lands. Could be interesting given the locale.

I've read that Marines were training for Pacific conditions and wet lands. Could be interesting given the locale.

What locale? Where?

The Pacific alone is almost half of the total ocean area in the world and it has just over half the volume of water of all oceans combined. And, yes, the lands that are in the Pacific are all relatively wet.

Only Hawaii and our puny territories and a few old island bases would be covered by this order. Since it is concerned with assisting civil authorities during natural disasters or a breakdown of civil order, it would not apply to Diego Garcia which is considered an all-military island base. Much the same can be said for Guam and a few others. We got rid of the civilians so there aren't any there to assist any more.

I'm not sure what you think the Marines are going to do. This order certainly doesn't do anything other than provide for Marine assistance to FEMA or the Corps of Engineers or agencies responsible for evacuation.
