Request Mast
The Request Mast is the official recognized means to preserve the right of all Marines to directly communicate grievances to, or seek assistance from, their Commanding Officers as exercised through the formal process of Request Mast.

Request Mast as established in U.S. Navy Regulations (Arts. 0820c and 1151.1) and the Marine Corps Manual (par 2805) includes both the right of the Marine to communicate with the commander, normally in person, and the requirement that the commander consider the matter and personally respond to the Marine requesting Mast.
