Prime RIBS teams provide

supplies and force support to the military and civilian personnel assigned to contingency locations. Some of the basic support they provide includes food service, mortuary affairs, lodging, fitness and recreation, laundry support, learning resource center support, non-appropriated funds (NAF) resale, and protocol capabilities. Each Prime RIBS team is capable of providing initial food service, billeting, recreation programs, and mortuary-operations support for a population of up to 1,200 people


Four Core Prime RIBS Missions

-Food Service
-Laundry Operations
-Mortuary Operations


The LRC (Learning Resource Center) Mission and purpose

is to centralize access and use of worldwide education, knowledge, and information for deployed personnel


some additional morale focused activities of the LRC




Some locations offer self-paced courses for learning new languages, a great pastime while deployed


Marketing Program

The primary goals of the marketing program are to recognize the needs and expectations of customers and potential customers, tailor marketing programs to meet those needs, and communicate the right message to the right market


Knowing Your Customer

One of the best ways to maximize your programming efforts


Personal contact

is the most effective method of promotion, but it reaches fewer people



-Telephones and computers are an important element to keep Airmen connected
-These morale phones and computers are not for official use; they are specifically set up for morale purposes.


Unique Challenges at a Deployed Location

-Operating Environments
-Joint Operations
-Coalition Operations


Operating Environments

-Deploying to locations that are performing coalition or combined operations is now the norm
-be prepared to work with and for military forces of other nations



It is vital that protocol personnel are aware of security needs, especially in a deployed location where heightened security measures are often necessary. Practicing good operational security (OPSEC) and communications security (COMSEC) for arriving DVs is imperative in a deployed location


Some Keys to Success

-Develop working relationships with the following areas: lodging, transportation, dining facilities, Customs and Immigrations, security forces, flight line personnel, and the US Embassy (to obtain an interpreter)
-Having a continuity folder is an excellent management tool for familiarizing newly assigned personnel with their duties
-Be aware of the wants, likes, and dislikes of your boss
-Know local customs and courtesies


Initial NAF Resale

NAF resale operations are normally established on or about day 15 of the deployment and conducted as a part of the lodging, fitness center and recreation center operations. Initially, these resale operations focus on providing health and hygiene items for deployed personnel


Expanded NAF Resale

Once the NAF resale operation is able to provide a stable supply of health and hygiene items, the resale stock can then be expanded to include morale items like sodas, candy, magazines and souvenirs. The expansion normally occurs about day 30 of the deployment.


Command and Control FM.

An RFL01 UTC with the Global Command and Control System - Air Force (GCCS-AF) equipment will arrive to take over the accountability, strength reporting and casualty reporting mission.


Establish the Airbase FM

Contains RFL03, RFPF3and RFL05 UTCs which augment the RFL01 to provide additional personnel leadership and advisory support.


Planning Phase: Personnel

-For personnel preparation, the single most important item in the planning phase is training



-The FSS commander ensures assigned PERSCO personnel complete required PERSCO training within 12 months of being designated as a PT member
-In-house training sessions should be conducted and documented at least twice a month
-Training should be as realistic as possible
-The FSS Unit Deployment Manager (UDM) serves as the focal point for scheduling and documenting all initial/recurring ancillary deployment training and classified courier training for PT members


Planning Phase:




A PERSCO supply kit must be established and maintained for each PT


Execution Phase:

Initial Set-Up Actions

During initial set-up, the PT is establishing PERSCO initial operations and establishing baseline strength accountability. Actions accomplished during initial set-up include:

-Ensure a Reception Control Center (RCC) is established
-Establish PERSCO Operating Location
-Establish PERSCO Operating Procedures
-Use all possible means to account for arriving forces
-Sustainment Operations and Actions


Sustainment Operations and Actions

These sustainment actions are a transition from the initial set-up actions, where the majority of the main operating force has arrived and completed in-processing actions


Maintain Accountability

-When discussing duty status, the emphasis is on the availability of members
-A person’s duty status can change quite easily and must be updated in DCAPES/MilPDS. PTs will submit daily DSC reports NLT 2400 hours local daily or NLT the timeline provided by the component command
-PTs track filler or replacement actions ensuring timely actions are taken and notify the deployed commander of the status of their requests


In order to maintain full accounting

The current strength and duty status changes are reported on a regular basis


Administrative Products. There are many products produced using DCAPES that are useful for PERSCO teams. Some of these products are:

Alpha Rosters. PTs provide alpha rosters to units. Units will review alpha rosters to maintain accountability by identifying personnel who have departed or have not in-processed. The PT then takes appropriate action to capture changed unit information.


Redeployment Responsibilities

-Maintain total force accountability. The hardest deployment action to maintain accountability in, is in redeployment actions
-Maintain equipment accountability


Forward Deployment Process

-For personnel forward deploying supporting the same operation, the losing PT will utilize the forward deployment function within the PERSCO module of the GCCS-AF system to update the new requirement information in DCAPES. A duty status change report is accomplished on forward deploying individuals.
-For personnel transitioning from routine TDY orders to fill an operational requirement, the TDY commander submits a request via the PT to home-station IPR requesting approval



is the process of obtaining products, services, applications, forces, equipment, or material from organizations that are not forward deployed



provides support to deployed PERSCO teams via the DCAPES PERSCO Web Application. It is a web-based software product that allows real-time access and update of data on all servers


Air and Space Expeditionary Force Operations (AFPC/DPW)

Located at Randolph AFB, is the reachback enabler for personnel processes and systems


Home Station FSS

FSS Commanders or deputies at home station are responsible for providing reachback support to deployed commanders and customers within THREE duty days of receipt of request.


Joint Personnel Status and Casualty Report (JPERSTAT)

The joint force J-1 accomplishes joint strength reporting for the Joint Force Commander (JFC) by combining daily service component strength reports into the joint personnel status and casualty report (JPERSTAT)


Joint Personnel Status and Casualty Report (JPERSTAT): PURPOSE

The Joint Personnel Status and Casualty Report is meant to satisfy the commander’s information needs and to authenticate the total number of personnel (military, DOD civilian, and DOD contractor) physically present in a geographic combatant commander’s area of responsibility


Reception Processing Plan

-Meet all aircraft that carry incoming personnel
-Brief all incoming personnel, and be sure you know each person’s status (permanent party, transient, etc.) Your brief should include guidance from the theater commander on down to any local policies that may apply
-Collect orders and all other necessary documents (locator cards, etc.)
-Work with lodging so that you aware of the beddown plan for all personnel
-Coordinate with agencies to ensure all applicable supplies are distributed (linens, MREs, ammunition, person protective equipment (PPE), etc.)
-Work with all units at your locale to ensure that recall rosters are updated each time new personnel arrive/depart
