Provide command and control of Reserve Support Unit (RSU) on a daily basis and of the Deployment Processing Command (DPC) permanent personnel when activated. Conduct planning and provide leadership, personnel support and training to the Marines and Sailors who comprise the Reserve Support Unit and Deployment Processing Command.
The DPC is formed around the RSU aboard Camp Pendleton with additional activated Marine Reserve Component (RC) personnel. DPC West utilizes an internal Personnel Processing Centers (PPC) to in-process/out-process individual RC Marines to active duty/release from active duty who have received recall orders from CMC (MP) for further assignment to the Operating Forces.
The DPC is staffed with Reserve (i.e., Active Reserve (AR), IMA, pre-assigned IRR), civilian, regular, and retiree manpower identified on its T/O to allow for scalable manning of the DPC/PPC, as necessary, to meet the projected processing requirements.
