Hi, My name is Philip. I am an attorney with over 16 years experience. Hopefully I can help you with your legal question.
Marine, this is found in Marine Corps order 1900.16.
Take a look at para 1008 (c). It provides, in partMarines
shall not be retained beyond their separation
date in the followng instances
Marines undergoing administrative separation processing will not be involuntarily retained on active duty past their release date. However, Marines involuntarily retained on active duty pursuant to paragraph 1008.1.c.(1) above, may be administratively separated pursuant to their own request in lieu of trial by court-martial, or pursuant to a negotiated pretrial agreement at a court-martial. In either case, said request or agreement by the Marine must be made with the assistance of counsel. This provision does not apply to Officers
. Reference (t) SECNAVINST 1920.6C controls the administrative separation of Officers and takes precedence over any conflicting provisions of this manual.
