DA Form 2-1 Personnel Qualification Record

What Is DA Form 2-1?

DA Form 2-1, Personnel Qualification Record is a version of a Soldier's individual record brief used for recording assignment and family data and information about service and training. The DA 2-1 - otherwise referred to as the Army Personnel Qualification Record - is kept by the Record Manager and is constantly updated over the course of the Soldier's career.

The Department of the Army (DA) released the latest edition of the form - sometimes confused with the DD Form 2, United States Uniformed Services Identification Card (Reserve, Retired or Reserve Retired) - in March 2008 with all previous editions being obsolete. An up-to-date DA Form 2-1 fillable version is available for digital filing and download below.

The DA Form 2-1 can also be used as proof of being in an area where an injury or illness occurred when filing for Combat-Related Special Compensation (CRSC) or Traumatic Servicemembers' Group Life Insurance (TSGLI)

The DA Form 4037 (Officer Record Brief) is a related form that provides of a one-page summary of the qualifications and career history of Individual Ready Reserve (IRR) Officers, Individual Mobilization Augmentee (IMA) Soldiers, and Warrant Officers.
