How to Fill Out DA Form 1307?
An overview of the form and filing guidelines can be found in the Army Regulation 600-8-22, Military Awards, released in June 2015. DA Form 1307 instructions are as follows:
- The first two boxes of the form require the parachutist's full name and grade.
- The current qualification of the parachutist should be indicated in Box 3.
- Boxes 4 through 6 require information about their qualification. This includes selecting the correct qualification out of the given three (parachutist, jumpmaster school graduate, senior parachutist or master parachutist) and specifying the unit, headquarters and the date of receiving the qualification.
- The next block of the form is a chart for entering information about each jump. The chart requires specifying the place of each jump, its type, the type of plane the jump was performed from, the terms or pay period covered and the initials of the personnel officer that supervised the jump. The codes for each jump type are listed in a block on the top right of the form. Using more than one code to describe a single jump is allowed.
Authorized personnel will determine special eligibility for awards based on the information provided on the form. The three degrees of badges authorized for awards are the Parachutist Badge - Basic, the Senior Parachutist Badge, and Master Parachutist Badge. Jumps performed at civilian parachuting facilities or clubs will not count towards the passing grade required to qualify for each badge.
