DD Form 1833 Isolated Personnel Report (ISOPREP)

What Is DD Form 1833?

DD Form 1833, Isolated Personnel Report (ISOPREP) is a form completed by all Army personnel heading to areas where they may become isolated due to hostile enemy activity. The information provided in the report is used to protect recovery forces caught by the enemy and facilitate the recovery of isolated service members. The latest DD Form 1833 fillable version is available for download and online filing through the link below.

The report - also called the DD Form 1833 ISOPREP for short - was released by the Department of Defense (DoD) in May 2008.

Completing the DD 1833 is obligatory for personnel traveling to OCONUS areas. All personnel will complete a PRO-File survey in accordance with Headquarters Department of the Army (HQDA) guidance. The data entered into PRO-File Survey is removed from the NIPR and transferred to the SIPR Joint Personnel Recovery Agency (JPRA) Personnel Recovery Mission Software (PRMS) site. Once transferred, the data is used to populate a digital DD Form 1833 (ISOPREP) on PRMS SIPRnet.

you, not questions and answers. They should involve easily remembered personal events or details that are not subject to change. Do not invent
stories that may not be remembered during an actual recovery - due to pain or the stress of the situation. Do not use memories subject to change
(i.e., My favorite ice cream is ...., My current dog is ...., etc.). Avoid using culturally sensitive information - something that might cause
embarrassment if disclosed, be culturally offensive, or aggravate an ally or friendly civilian that may assist in recovery - e.g., no derogatory or
sexually oriented statements, diseases, or bodily functions.
(b) This data may be used to authenticate the author's identity prior to combat recovery to ensure the safety of the recovery force.
(c) A recovery force must be able to make a minimum of four questions from each statement to authenticate you. Example: "While living in Porter,
Oklahoma, in 1972, I had a black and tan Doberman named Crockett." At least four questions can be made from this statement:
(1) Question: What state did you live in during 1972?
Answer: Oklahoma.
(2) Question: What town did you live in during 1972?
Answer: Porter.
(3) Question: What was your dog's name in 1972?
Answer: Crockett.

Answer: Black and tan.
Block 54: Authentication Number. Enter an easily remembered four-digit number. The authentication number must be able to produce as many
separate questions and responses as possible by addition, subtraction, or multiplication of the four digits. Examples of good numbers are: 8142,

How to Fill out DD Form 1833

The ISOPREP consists of nine sections in total with filing guidelines described on the first page of the report. DD Form 1833 instructions are provided below:

  1. Section I, Personal Information, requires basic identifying data in Boxes 1 through 21. This includes the race, gender, weight, ethnic group, blood type, and any identifying marks or scars the soldier may have as well as their full personal information - the full name, religious preference, accent, citizenship, branch of service, current unit, DOB, SSN, etc.;
  2. Section II, Uniform Data, is for submitting the exact sizing and measures of all parts of the uniform;
  3. Section III, Training/Capability Data, is used for specifying all of the training received by the soldier along with its type, location, date. Section III is also designed to evaluate reading, writing and speaking skills in the soldier's primary and other languages;
  4. Section IV, Reintegration Information, is for providing personal information about the soldier's relatives (next of kin, parents, and children);
  5. Section V of the ISOPREP is for JPRC/PRCC use only;
  6. Section VI, Additional Information, requires all ten fingerprints. When filing digitally, upload fingerprint files in .wsq, .jpg, or .bmp format;
  7. Section VII, Photos, is for attaching a photo of the head and torso taken from the front and a right profile photograph. The photos must be no more than 200Kb and no less then 200 by 200 pixels in size;
  8. The front-facing photo can be any full-face picture where the service member has their natural hair color. The profile-view photo can be taken from any side and must clearly display the facial features;
  9. Wearing hats and sunglasses is not acceptable. Prescription eyewear should also not be worn. Photos should present a predominant view of the head without obstruction and be no more than a year old;
  10. Section VIII is for Review Information. The section consists of four blocks and is meant for verifying all previous information;
  11. Section IX - Personal Authentication Statements, contains information that will be used to identify the soldier. All of the statements submitted should be simple and declarative recollections of strong memories based upon real personal events, not questions or answers.

These statements should involve events or details that are not subject to change. Culturally sensitive information - something that might cause embarrassment if disclosed, be culturally offensive, or aggravate an ally or friendly civilian that may assist in recovery - are to be avoided.
