What five factors must be considered when planning support in Services?
- 1) Food services must maintain a cook-to-customer under 1:50. Must sustain operations using the 2 prepared meal and MRE conceptand be able to graduate to 3 prepared meals
- 2) Lodging must control all bed assignments and terminations, and control multiple lodging facilities (eg, tent cities, main op base lodging, host nation facilities, and contract quarters)
- 3) Mortuary operations capabilities under the deterrent phase consist of continuing the current death program and final planning actions required to implement remains processing and temporary mass burial if required
