reporting based on installation needs. This program allows retirees to be called
up for a partial mobilization. A separate mobilization order will supersede all
previously issued preassignment orders and direct reporting on a specified
date, normally 7 days after issuance.
(3) Retirees are preassigned to installations, not by paragraph and line
number, but are earmarked for unit of assignment. Installation commanders
are delegated authority to adjust final assignment based on installation needs.
Planning for the assignment, utilization and support of recalled retirees is a
MACOM, FOA, installation, and activity responsibility. Installation planning,
however, is key to the successful utilization of retiree assets. Consequently,
detailed planning must be developed which addresses retiree accessioning,
administrative in-processing, medical examination, support (billeting,
messing, clothing), assignment, dependent related activities, etc.

(3) All personnel assigned to units scheduled for deployment are deployable
except those exempt by Chapter 3, AR 614-30. Nondeployable personnel will
be assigned locally from deploying units to nondeploying units by the
(4) Pregnant service members are ineligible for deployment throughout
pregnancy and until medically determined fit for duty.
(5) POR requirements and Geneva Convention (law of war) training will be
met to the maximum extent possible; however, failure to meet all of the
requirements will not bar an individual from overseas deployment. To the
maximum extent possible POR and/or Geneva Convention deficiencies will
be remedied upon arrival in theater.
b. The policy for disposition of Troop Program Unit (TPU) and/or IRR individuals
who require additional training or meet minimum deployment criteria is:
