MARFOR
• Combatant commander tasks service component commander (MARFOR) with OCONUS reconstitution • Contact HQMC for subsequent guidance on conduct of reconstitution

Reconstitution Planning
• Commences once a portion of an MPF capability has been committed to an operation of exercise • Two part process
– During arrival and assembly – Post arrival and assembly

• Reconstitution versus redeployment
– Mutually supportive and integrated
MPF-19 11

Definitions
• Redeployment
– Return of forces to home station or movement to new theater of operations

• Reconstitution
– Restoration of combat capability using service resources and national assets

Reconstitution Planning During AA
• • • • Storage and warehouse areas MPF containers Maintenance requirements Automated logistics systems and personnel • Coordination with key participants
MPF-19 14

Reconstitution Planning Post AA
• Conducted in theater by MAGTF G3 and G4 plans sections • Disposal of material not to be returned to ships • Sites for reconstitution
– Primary and alternate

• Inspection teams
MPF-19 15

Reconstitution Planning
• Publish applicable orders and directives • De-conflict reconstitution and redeployment plans • Delineate cost accounting methods • Task organization • Safety requirements
– Operational tempo
MPF-19 16

Reconstitution Planning
• Organize site
– Wash-down and maintenance areas – Traffic routes – Staging areas (ammunition) – Command posts

• Wash-down procedures • Implement automated systems support • Develop inspection schedules
MPF-19 17

Reconstitution Planning
• Promulgate timeline • Ensure MPE/S are spread-loaded throughout MPSRON • Reconstitute capability sets
– Load onto weather decks/under hatch squares

• Review embarkation plans for hazardous cargo and other maritime regulations
MPF-19 18

Reconstitution Sites
• Within the theater • Outside the theater • Interim maintenance site
– Blount Island Command

OCONUS Reconstitution Considerations
• Climate
– Heat/cold – Sandstorms/snowstorms/rain

• Environment
– Unimproved areas – Desert areas – Jungle/wooded

• World situation • Troop experience and rotation schedules
MPF-19 20

How could this affect washdown procedures?

MPF-19

21

Deferred Reconstitution
• Recommended by MARFOR Commander • Forwarded to supported Combatant Commander copying HQMC • Not recommended- look for interim maintenance site when possible.

Reconstitution LOI
• This document is the basis for MPF reconstitution • Product of the MPC • Allows pre-execution actions recommended by the MPC to commence

MPF-19

36

SPMAGTF/CSSD
• MARFOR will assign SPMAGTF/CSSD as the executive agent for reconstitution.
– Focus solely on Reconstitution

• Not the same as the MPF MAGTF LCE
– Focus on log support and redeployment

Staging Areas
• Efficiency
– This will contribute to the effectiveness of the reconstitution process – Validated by the SLRP

• Off-load area may not be optimal for reconstitution

HNS
• Maximize use of HNS
– Speed – Economy

• Depends on host nation’s resources and willingness to lend assistance

Safety
• Accidents very likely
– Expeditionary – Varying skill levels – Time constraints

• Safety equipment must be emphasized • Environmental safety
– Waste management
• Legal issue

– Hazardous material
• HAZMAT Officer assigned to SPMAGTF MPF-19
