ARMY - AR 350-9
OVERSEAS DEPLOYMENT TRAINING
|Publication Date:||8 November 2004|
a. This regulation prescribes policy, procedures, and responsibilities to train Reserve Component (RC) units based in the continental United States (CONUS) (and RC units in Hawaii, Alaska, and U.S. territories or possessions) at locations outside the continental United States (OCONUS) and U.S. territories or possessions in a training status. RC units execute overseas deployment training (ODT) primarily to improve their mission readiness; however, RC units conducting ODT also fulfill capability requirement shortfalls for an Army service component command's theater engagement, security cooperation, forward presence, stabilization, and mission support activities.
Applicability. This regulation applies to the Active Army, the Army National Guard of the United States/Army National Guard and the U.S. Army Reserve, unless stated otherwise. This regulation does not apply during mobilization.
