OCIE guidance for USAR soldiers.


* OCIE issued directly to you at active component (AC) central issue facilities (CIFs) and in the Rapid Fielding Initiative Program will be posted to your individual installation support module (ISM)-CIF clothing record.

* On redeployment, you're required to keep certain OCIE items for the rest of your career.

* Your supporting CIF is Reserve CIF at Sierra Army Depot (SIAD), CA (RS0100). When you are no longer deployed, SIAD will support you on OCIE issues, turn-ins and exchanges, and also maintain and update your clothing record.

* At home station, your unit supply sergeant can initiate changes or corrections to your ISM-CIF records.

* When deployed or assigned to an AC or Army National Guard (ARNG) unit, you'll be supported in the same manner as all the other Soldiers in your assigned AC or ARNG unit.
