Commanders and leaders at all levels are responsible for individual Soldier readiness and will use all available tools, resources, and authorities to reduce the number of non-deployable Soldiers within their formations.
Likewise, individual Soldiers will remain personally responsible and prepare for training and worldwide deployment at all times. (SOURCE: Army Directive 2018-22 Retention Policy for Non-Deployable Soldiers - Nov. 8, 2018)
Six criteria to determine if a Soldier is DEPLOYABLE:
Non-deployable Soldiers are a major impact on the current Ready Force and overall readiness of Soldiers. Commanders and leaders must continuously monitor each of his or her Soldiers' deployable status in order to remain ready as the world's premier combat force. The deployable status of Soldiers is directly correlated with the Army's number one priority which is Readiness.

Soldiers are legally non-deployable when they are convicted and sentenced to confinement by civilian or military authorities, or when they are pending legal actions. Soldiers who were convicted and sentenced to confinement will have to be processed for administrative separation upon release.

COMMANDERS, did you know? Soldiers on profile GREATER than 30 days are reportable as non-deployable. Guidance from Army Directive 2018-22 (2 NOV 2018) states that Commanders at all levels will review individual Soldier medical profiles on a monthly basis using the Commanders Portal. In addition, the Commander should provide proactive written counseling explaining the responsibilities of the Soldier and requiring the Command Team to actively manage these Soldiers.
All TPU Soldiers should contact the Army Reserve-Medical Management Center (AR-MMC) for profiling and medical fitness guidance.
All AGR or Soldiers on orders more than 30 days are medically managed through the Regional Health Command (RHC) POCs as listed below:
