    MARINE CORPS AIR STATION CHERRY POINT, N.C. — More than 500 Marines from throughout Marine Corps Air Station Cherry Point packed the air station theater, July 23, to attend a special duty assignment screening hosted by Manpower Management Enlisted Assignment Branch 85.

    The Marines were screened for special duty assignment billets like drill instructors, recruiters, combat instructors, Marine security guard and Marine Corps security forces.

    Representatives from each special assignment gave Power Point presentations while sharing personal experiences from their career choices and the benefits of secondary billets.

    The representatives also explained what could disqualify the Marines from being selected for a special duty assignment.

    Tattoos, marriage, dependents, time in the Marine Corps and time on the air station all play a part in what options are available.

    “There are rewarding opportunities in all billets,” said Gunnery Sgt. Chris Gielarowski, the career planner for Headquarters and Headquarters Squadron. “(Special duty assignments) play a key role in promotions, they give back to the Marine Corps and they become the hand-picked future leaders.”

    The Manpower Management Enlisted Assignment Branch 85 passes through Cherry Point twice a year. The next monitor visit from the unit will be in December, times and dates are still to be determined.
