Active Component Unit Reintegration
Unit reintigration may or may not be an issue, depending on the type of IA orders the AC Sailor filled. Typical concerns for reintegrating AC sailors include:
- Resumption of collateral duties
- Competitiveness for increased responsibility
- FITREPs and EVALs
- Follow-On Orders
IAMM Sailors return to their Parent Commands.
- In many cases, the extent to which the IA Sailor included their Parent Command in their Communication Plan during their mobilization will ease their reintegration, particularly with regard to resolivng expectations #1 - #3 from the list above.
- IAMM Sailors may also refer to the tips and best practice suggestions provided for reservists returning to civillian employment. People are people, and many of the same principles apply.
One of the main concerns for unit R3 is how you fit into the next FITREP/EVAL cycle, particularly with regard to the peers you left behind when you mobilized. The FITREP/EVAL guidance page includes information regarding post-IA tour FITREP/EVAL cycles with your Parent Command. For IAMMs, a reporting cycle within 180 days of their return should place them in a separate summary group from their peers.
GSA Sailors do not return to their Parent Commands, or else PCS shortly after their return. For these Sailors, reintegration with the old command is not a primary concern. FITREPs or EVALs should be marked Not Observed.
OSA Sailirs return their original commands, but usually only for a short time before recieving follow-on PCS orders. The FITREP/EVAL guidance page includes information regarding post-IA tour FITREP/EVAL cycles with your Parent Command. For OSAs, a reporting cycle within 180 days of their return should place them in a separate summary group from their peers.
