Request Mast

Request Mast

The Request Mast procedure is the officially recognized means for Marines to communicate with their commanding officer and/or commanding general. It includes both the right of Marines to communicate with their commanding officer, as well as the requirement that the commanding officer personally consider and respond to the matter. Request mast provides Marines with an approved channel to air real or perceived grievances. Request mast also provides commanding officers with firsthand knowledge of the morale and general welfare of the command.
