What is the purpose of a unit's rear detachment operations?  
The Rear Detachment Officer (RDO) is the unit officer who acts as the unit commander in the rear when the unit is deployed. The RDO is responsible for all Soldiers and property in the rear, unit and installation support missions, the training of replacements, and supporting the needs of the unit’s family members. The RDO maintains regular contact with the deployed unit and serves as the main point of contact for the unit’s Family Readiness Group (FGR) Leaders. The RDO maintains a small staff to assist him/her with rear detachment operations and often times, they are relocated to the Family Readiness Center to more easily support family members.
