This slide accurately depicts the NDRC and the authorization to report to ASD-SO/LIC for all detainees associated with GWOT.
Also, depicted in this slide is the personnel slots assigned to the NDRC. Many have left. Review personnel
All TDA slots in ODL are actually owned by the NDRC, but technology negates the use of all 12. Thus, others are doled out to other Branches. ODO will not approve any future mobilizations without a TDA slot available.
