Casualties are occurring and may continue to occur while deployed. Replacement personnel are assigned and are expected to continue to arrive as required.  As the theater matures, unit personnel may participate in Rest and Recuperation (R&R) programs outside the unit area. As the operational environment stabilizes, unit personnel may also be allowed to take emergency and ordinary leaves and be eligible for reassignment to other operational areas. Replacement actions are conducted during lulls in combat operations. Communications links with subordinate elements and higher headquarters are operational. The Theater G1 coordinates for facilities and support. Theater personnel; military, DOD Civilians, and contractors, are proceeding to and returning from R&R areas. Communications between these echelons have been established. Requests for information and access to R&R areas are being received from supported units. Terrorists and other hostile force sympathizers are operating in the area. Threat capabilities include information gathering, hostile force sympathizers, and terrorist activities in a Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear and high yield Explosives (CBRNE) environment.
