(1) All active and reserve component units located in CONUS, Alaska,
Hawaii, Panama, Puerto Rico, Guam, and Virgin Islands are included in the
(2) Nondeploying RC units which will remain under FORSCOM/TRADOC
control following mobilization are stationed at FORSCOM/TRADOC
installations. Certain other nondeploying units have been assigned
mobilization stations/sites as requested by the major commands to which they
will be assigned/attached upon mobilization; for example, MTMC for
transportation terminal units, Health Services Command for medical
augmentation units, and deploying units with initial mission to support AMC
depot operations. Other nondeploying units will be mobilized in place; for
example, ARCOMs and state area commands (STARC). Mobilization sites,
not designated as a mobilization station, arrange mobilization support by
MOU or ISSA with the nearest active installation (supporting installation) as
assigned by the coordinating installation (CI) IAW AR 5-9. Supporting
installations will perform unit validation and other administrative actions
outside the capability of these mobilization sites.
(3) Requirements for nondeploying general support forces beyond those
shown in the stationing plan must be satisfied through selective expansion of
installation TDA. Guidance for preparation/ update of MOBTDA expansion
requirement is included in Annex V to the FORSCOM Mobilization Plan
(4) Sustaining base units fall into two general categories: quick fix force
(QFF) and "other sustaining base." These categories identify and alert
deployable units that have an interim mission related installation support role.
However, this identification method does not preclude the installation
commander's using assets of other late deploying units, not identified as
sustaining base, as support requirements are identified during execution of
(5) QFF units are "critical" sustaining base nondeploying and deploying units
which received special priority resourcing plus full-time manning positions.
QFF units have been assigned a RDYLD of 45 to ensure availability of QFF
missions for 30-40 days. QFF units are identified with a third position
ROBCO of 1 through 6. Deployable QFF units have a ROBCO third position
of 4, 5, or 6. Ideally, no deployable units would be used in this category.
Technically, component 1 units are not QFF; however, these and other RC
TDA units are listed to show installation assets.
(6) "Other sustaining base" are late deploying units, whose deployment
requirements permit them to be mobilized early and used in a mission related
installation support role. Those late deploying units will not be especially
resourced or fenced from OPLAN deployment requirements and will be
identified in the data base using a third position ROBCO of 7. Deployable
units in this category must be released from their installation support role in
