I'm looking for a word which is the antonym for a military unit being destroyed or degraded. I considered live, but that has the connotation of a single being. I considered active, but my phrasing should be useful even if the unit is, say, encamped and not currently doing anything. What would the term-of-art be here?
Reports that the military unit were scattered and destroyed turned out to be in error; rather, the unit was still ____.
