Abstract:

The existing requirement that commissioned officers act as the reporting seniors RS for Marine Security Guard MSG fitness reports creates a contrived reporting chain and undermines the credibility of the fitness report process and the authority of the detachment commander. The PES manual states that the RS should be the officersupervisor closest to the Marine, and directly responsible for the Marines daily taskings sic and supervision. Additionally, the RS is in the best position to observe the Marines performance and character. However, inspecting officers IO, by billet a lieutenant or a captain, currently complete MSG fitness reports even though they are located in different countries and have limited, if any, observation of the Marine reported on MRO.
