Mobilization Order Writing


PERS-461 creates and generates mobilization and Presidential Reserve Call Up (PRC) orders for reservists who are mobilized as an Individual Augmentee (IA) or mobilized as part of an established commissioned unit.  PERS-461 also issues demobilization orders and associated modifications, including extensions and cancellations of orders in coordination with USFLTFORCOM, COMNAVRESFORCOM and supported commands.  PERS-461 also provides customer service support to mobilized reservists via the Mobilization Sailor Advocacy team.
