Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton

Transitional Readiness Seminar

•    We have Marines that are not being allowed to attend TRS in the allotted time. Title 10, USC, 1142 states the following:

•    (A) In the case of an anticipated retirement, pre-separation counseling shall commence as soon as possible during the 24-month period preceding the anticipated retirement date. In the case of a separation other than a retirement, pre-separation counseling shall commence as soon as possible during the 14-month period preceding the anticipated date. Except as provided in subparagraph (B), in no event shall pre-separation counseling commence later than 90 days before the date of discharge or release.

•    (B) In the event that a retirement or other separation is unanticipated until there are 90 or fewer days before the anticipated retirement or separation date, or in the event a member of a reserve component is being demobilized under circumstances in which (as determined by the Secretary concerned) operational requirements make the 90-day requirement under subparagraph (A) unfeasible, pre-separation counseling shall begin as soon as possible within the remaining period of service.

•    In other words, it is the law to send Marines to TRS at least 90 days before their EAS. If you have any questions, please stop by or call our office.
