PREFACE

1. Repatriation is the procedure whereby American citizens are officially processed back into the United States subsequent to their evacuation from overseas. In addition to the official processing, eligible noncombatants will be provided various services to ensure their well-being and transportation to their final destination.

2. In situations when an evacuation occurs and a national emergency has not been declared, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) National Emergency Repatriation Plan delegates repatriation responsibilities to governmental agencies for their respective personnel and family members.

3. Department of Defense Directive 3025.14 (Noncombatant Evacuation Operations) designates the Secretary of the Army as the DoD Executive Agent for repatriation of DoD noncombatants. When requested, the Army shall also provide repatriation services to non-DoD personnel. Under conditions of a national emergency, DoD may be unable to provide these services if involved in military operations.

4. The Deputy Chief of Staff, G-1, Army, has been designated as the Action/Executing Agent for repatriation plans and operations.

5. This Joint Plan has been written to respond to situations when DoD is responsible for repatriation operations. It directly supports the evacuation plans developed by each Theater commander. The decision to implement this plan will be dependent on the scale of the noncombatant evacuation. While the plan primarily applies to a large-scale evacuation, it may be adapted for smaller, less precipitous engagements.

6. This plan is effective for planning upon receipt, and for execution upon order of the Secretary of Defense. It is unclassified; however, it will be discussed only with those agencies outside DoD involved in noncombatant evacuation and repatriation planning and/or execution.

7. This document rescinds the Joint Plan for DoD Noncombatant Repatriation, dated 11 August 1999. Changes to this Plan and future iterations of the Plan will be updated on the worldwide web. Very limited distribution of written copies of this Plan will be made.
