How to Fill Out DA Form 4886?

The form may be filed digitally, but some items need to be completed with an ink pen. This includes the name, rank and the last four digits of soldiers SSN. DA Form 4886 instructions are as follows:

  1. Indicate the size of each item, if applicable. Enter information on consecutive clothing inventories in Columns 1 through 15. If the issued item is not listed in the form it should be indicated in the empty lines provided at the bottom of the list.
  2. Any additional information should be listed in the REMARKS section.
  3. Each issue has to be followed by the date and signature at the bottom of the form. The decision whether the soldier will need to return the items or will be able to keep them depends on the duration of their service and the conditions of discharge. 
    • If the servicemember is discharged from active duty under honorable conditions after more than three years of service they may retain all items in their possession. The unit commander has to determine the turn-in of the recoverable items. 
    • If the servicemember is discharged under honorable conditions and served three years or less of active duty are permitted to retain all clothing items. 
    • Personnel with six months or less of active duty service with an honorable, general, or other than honorable discharge may retain one ASU and component items.
