USACE Deployment Information

All USACE deployees report to the Camp Atterybury, Indiana (CAIN) for pre-deployment processing.  This is currently a two week process which includes a 14 day Restriction of Movement (ROM) due to the COVID-19 pandemic. 

The Middle East District's Administrative Personnel Processing Office (APPO) works with you before you travel to CAIN. If you previously deployed through the USACE Deployment Center (UDC) or through the CONUS Replacement Center at Ft. Bliss, you'll be familiar with the APPO processes, which haven't changed. The APPO will continue to assist you and ensure you are cleared to report to CAIN before orders are cut. This should allow for a less stressful experience at the deployment platform.  

Please select the deployment category on the right that applies to you and carefully review the information. This link provides a summary of the instructions for a wide range of requirements, including security clearances, passports, medical information, and completion of administrative forms that are a prerequisite for deployment. While this link provides a synopsis of the requirements, check out all other links to discover additional necessary information about your deployment.

If any of your deployment-related questions are not answered by the information provided in this website, please contact your APPO representative. The APPO will process your deployment paperwork and is available to provide additional information and guidance.

 

What's new in DEPLOYMENTS

Collapse All Expand All

Personnel arriving from Camp Atterbury will now be housed at Camp Buehring instead of Camp Arifjan. Previously, incoming personnel headed to Afghanistan were housed at in Restriction of Movement (ROM) (not a 14-day quarantine), separately from all other personnel. 

So, personnel will arrive at Camp Arifjan, in-process and receive the incoming brief from the Gateway and RSOI LNO's. USACE deployees will then receive another brief from USFOR-A LNO's. Once this brief is completed, personnel will take the shuttle bus to Camp Buehring, where they will remain until their flights to Afghanistan.

COIN and Human Rights training is no longer required

Hot and Cold Weather Training is no longer required for personnel processing through Camp Atterbury.
