Terms used in the Lineage Sections
Formal lineage terminology is used. However, the urgency of reality meant that often different stages were bypassed, and, for example, a disbanded unit could be reconstituted, activated, and mobilized all on one and the same date.
Activate:
 
Assign:
Attach:
Constitute:
Disband:
 
Discontinue:
Inactivate:

Redesignate:
To bring a constituted or disbanded unit or formation up to peace time strength by filling it up with personnel and equipment. (In some cases, a small cadre possibly as little as one officer and one enlisted man is assigned for formalities sake). It can happen at the same time as mobilization, then including Reserves and supply services.
To place a unit or formation in a military organization, making it an element of that organization.
To place a unit of formation for administrative, operational control, logistic support, or other purposes, without making it an integral part of the organization.
To designate a unit or formation and place it on the order of battle, thus making it available for activation.
To place a unit or formation to standby status. It continues to exist as a designation in the order of battle without personnel. (In some cases, a small cadre possibly as little as one officer and one enlisted man is maintained for formalities sake.)
To withdraw all personnel from a constituted unit or formation and terminate its designation and existence in the order of battle. It ceases to exist.
To reduce in personnel and support services and return an activated unit to its peace time status.
To bring an activated unit or formation up to full war time strength, including the call-up of all Reserve personnel and support services. In some cases, even an inactivated or disbanded unit or formation is immediately mobilized when necessity dictates, bypassing the activation status.
To return a disbanded unit to the order of battle and thus make it available for activation.
To change the name and/or number of a unit or formation.
