DA Form 3161 "Request for Issue or Turn-In"

What Is DA Form 3161?

DA Form 3161, Request for Issue or Turn-In, is a form issued by the U.S. Department of the Army (DA) and used for listing supplies that are turned in or are being issued to a certain party or individual.

The latest edition of the DA 3161 was released on December 1, 2017, and is in use today. This version does not override the 2011 edition of the form. However, electronic signatures might be unavailable in older versions. The form - sometimes incorrectly referred to as DD Form 3161 - is available for download below.

There are three forms related to the Request for Issue or Turn-In. DA Form 3161-1, Request for Issue or Turn-In (Continuation Sheet), is used when the space provided on the original form is not enough to input all necessary information. DA Form 2062, Hand Receipt/Annex Number, is used for keeping track of Army property handed out to personnel. DA Form 2765-1, Request for Issue or Turn-In, is a form used to request single-line items listed in the AMDF or to turn in items that do not require turn-in credit to the Supply Support Activity (SSA).
