Hot Info

Army Materiel Command

Welcome to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Deployment Center!

Your command has directed you to this web site to get you started on the paperwork necessary for deployment. You will be working with the AMC Liaison at the UDC for submission of your pre-deployment package. All pre-deployment paperwork will be submitted through the AMC Liaison and must be received three weeks prior to reporting to the USACE Deployment Center (UDC). Failure to provide this info in the requested timeline might result in delays to the original deployment date.

There are a number of pre-deployment requirements that need to be accomplished prior to reporting to the UDC. All paperwork needs to be submitted to the following e-mail address: or FAX to 540-665-3463. In the subject line of the e-mail or FAX sheet, please put your name, the agency you are working for and your UDC date. Example: SUBJECT: John Doe, AMC Deployee, UDC Date 5 Dec 07. Your information will be collected by the AMC Liaison and they will let you know of any missing information. They will be in contact with you during the entire pre-deployment process. It is best if you send in your paperwork all at one time, rather than “piece-mailing” it in. Please ensure you give contact phone numbers in your correspondence.

______ Provide a copy of your official or tourist passport.

If your flight arrangements change or delays occur, please notify the limo service. Taxi service to Winchester is available at the Dulles International Airport.

_______ [Afghanistan and Kuwait Deployees Only] Complete the UDC Clothing Issuance Form. The clothing cross-reference sheet will help you determine what sizes to request. Example * Please ensure you are measured properly using the clothing cross-reference sheet. Uniforms are sewn in advance and it creates extra work when the sizes are incorrect. ** The UDC does not have large/regular blouse sizes in its inventory. We will issue large/long or large/short blouses depending on the height given on the clothing form.

_______ [Iraq Deployees] Complete the Iraq ID Tag Form.

______ Ensure your AKO Account is active and you know your AKO User ID and Password

______ Life Insurance. This is an additional life insurance policy issued by the Department of Labor. There is no additional cost for this Insurance. This insurance policy is in addition to your existing policy. This policy can be set to different beneficiaries than your "established" beneficiaries. Please complete the forms and turn them into your home station Admin Office for your official file.

Medical Information

Incomplete medical information or having a certain medical condition is the primary reason an individual will not deploy or is delayed. Individuals are not allowed to deploy with certain medical conditions. Information about disqualifying medical conditions can be found on the USACE Deployment Center’s website.

*Note: It is difficult to list all conditions that would disqualify someone from deploying. If you have one of the conditions identified or believe you may have a medical condition that would prevent you from deploying, please highlight this information when it is sent to the APPO. You will be reimbursed for your physical and dental exams only. If the UDC doctor requires additional tests or corrective medical procedures to determine deployability, the cost of these additions will be paid by the deployee.

* You must be medically cleared by the UDC doctor before orders will be issued.

* You must deploy with the following medical information:
1. Annotation of blood type and Rh factor, HIV, and DNA.
2. Current medications and allergies. Include any preventive medications prescribed and dispensed to an individual.
3. Special duty qualifications.
4. Annotation of corrective lens prescription.
5. Summary sheet of current and past medical and surgical problems. (DD Form 2807-1)
6. Copy of DD 2795Form (Pre-Deployment Health Assessment)
7. Documentation of dental status class I or II.
8. Immunization record: Must accurately reflect the current status for all immunizations at the time of departure (i.e. last minute immunizations provided on the deployment line must be annotated in the deployment medical record prior to departure. These must be promptly entered into electronic data system to ensure receiving medics in the AOR have access to accurate data for each inbound member).

Since the medical requirement is also the most costly and time consuming, follow the pre-deployment checklist below to ensure all necessary information is sent to the APPO.

The DD771 is the only form accepted by DoD when ordering prescription eyewear. NO OTHER FORM OF PRESCRIPTION CAN BE ACCEPTED. (You can include your civilian prescription with the DD771.) PRESCRIPTION MUST NOT BE OLDER THAN ONE YEAR.

To avoid delays in the ordering process, please ensure all writing is clear and legible.
