FM 3-35 is the Army's authoritative doctrine for planning, organizing, executing, and supporting deployment and redeployment. This manual represents the culmination of our efforts to consolidate all deployment doctrine (FM 100-17, FM 100-17-3, FM 3-35.4, FM 100-17-5, and FM 4-01.011) into a single manual to align Army deployment doctrine with joint deployment doctrine. FM 3-35 has five chapters and 12 appendices. - Chapter 1 presents an overview of force projection and the deployment process. - Chapter 2 spells out activities units engage in prior to being alerted for deployment. - Chapter 3 outlines the procedures involved in the movement of units from home station to the port of embarkation (POE) and from the POE to the port of debarkation (POD). - Chapter 4 details the process of reception, staging, onward movement, and integration (RSOI). - Chapter 5 explains redeployment.
