Camp Pendleton

Camp Pendleton, CA
Headquarters Mission

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.

The DPC is built around the following structure:

Personnel Processing Center (PPC)

  1. Responsible for activation/deactivation, via the unit diary, activated individual Marine Reserves.
  2. Responsible for in-processing/out-processing individual AC Marines as directed using MCMPS. Upon deactivation, issues DD-214 to individual Marine.
  3. Responsible for in-processing/out-processing Navy Reserve personnel assigned to USMCR units. Navy Reserves are gained to active duty via the local Personnel Support Detachment (PSD), which creates an active duty pay and personnel account in the active duty Navy pay and personnel system.
  4. Endorses AC/RC Marines orders to reflect activation/deactivation and to/from TAD in excess.
  5. Provides Service Member's Civil Relief Act briefings.
  6. Schedules dental/medical activation/deactivation appointments, in MCMPS, with the supporting base/station medical treatment facility for all AC/RC Marines and activated Navy Reservists.
  7. Establishes a Casual Section to "hold" Mobilizing Marines determined unqualified for active duty or until the Marine becomes qualified for further assignments, deferred, or is discharged.
  8. Establishes capability from within organic assets to provide an in-theater DPC liaison team to support the redeployment for deactivation of AC/RC Marines processed to active duty by that DPC.
  9. Reports arrival and processing of AC/RC Marines, Navy Reservists and civilian DoD employees (i.e., civil service and contractors) via MCMPS as shown in Figure 3 below. Coordinates with CMC (MPP-60) regarding RC Marines not found qualified for active duty for orders resolution/determination. Appropriate DD&E code is entered into MCMPS.
Personnel Coordination Center (PCC)

  1. Coordinates with supporting SOI for CRT
  2. Establishes administrative holding "companies" of Marines who have completed processing and CRT, and are awaiting transfer to their GFC. The term "company" is used here to show an administrative grouping of Marines and not to indicate an employable organization such as a rifle company.
Personnel Logistics Coordination Center (PLCC)

Responsible for the coordination, in conjunction with base logistics and facilities departments, of the following functions:

  1. Messing and billeting through appropriate base/camp organization. Billeting locations for individual Marines will be tracked via MCMPS.
  2. Coordinate with appropriate base organizations the issue and recovery of uniforms, individual equipment and T/O weapons to activated Marines, AC Marines and Navy personnel.
  3. In and about local transportation to support AC/RC processing as required. Establishes and maintains airport liaison team, as required, to meet arriving personnel.
