(6) The relative locations and distances between the units home location,

c. Basic Criteria for Modified Deployment.
(1) Time available before unit equipment must be at the SPOE.
(2) A readiness posture of C-3 or better is attained and maintained.
(3) Unit training requirements at the mobilization station.
