DA Form 268, Report To Suspend Favorable Personnel Actions (Flag) is a form used for adding or removing flags from a soldier's record. A flag is an administrative measure implemented during some type of disciplinary or administrative action and maintained until that action is concluded. The Flags may negatively affect the soldier's possible promotion in rank
The most recent version of the form - sometimes incorrectly referred to as the DD Form 268 - was released by the Department of the Army (DA) in May 2016. An up-to-date DA Form 268 fillable version is available for download and digital filing below or can be found on the Army Publishing Directorate website. All the previous editions of the form are obsolete.
The DA 268 is prepared to reflect that favorable personnel actions are suspended with regard to the affected Soldier. Its mandatory to suspend these actions if military or civilian authorities initiate an investigation into the soldier's conduct that may result in disciplinary or administrative actions.
