The Flag Marine Detachment under Sergeant D. O. Barriger serves as orderlies to Commander Seventh and the Chief of Staff. During the average watch, these Marines may be called upon to run errands ranging from carrying a personal message to carrying official highly classified material. They also act as escorts when either of the top officers desires to visit a part of the ship outside of Admiral's Country.
