Realities of Mobilization


REDOs serve in Harm’s Way

Since 09
-
11
-
2001, over 135 Reserve Engineering Duty Officers have been
activated to support the Global War on Terror (GWOT), with 30 additional
officers utilizing Active Duty for Special Work (ADSW) funds. They have
filled a variety of mobilization jobs, both engineering and non
-
engineering including substantial service in extreme non
-
permissive
environments:

Examples


Provincial Reconstruction Teams, Civil Affairs Officers,
Engineer Officers on Army staff, Overseas Shipyard Project Officers, Navy
Customs, Counter IED Teams, Afghanistan Pakistan Hands, etc.

At present, the Navy expects that fully qualified EDs will be mobilized
once every 5 calendar years.

Current demand signal is for officers in grades 0
-
3 through O
-
5; however,
all grades have been mobilized and occasionally officers that have not yet
qualified as EDO have been mobilized based on the needs of the Navy.

The Navy maintains a Mobilization Availability list based on Precedence
Number (seniority) and nominally selects the most senior eligible officer
in grade. Typically officers in the Engineering Duty Qualification pipeline
are ineligible for mobilization.
