What Regulation Covers DA Form 3078?

An overview of the DA 3078 and filing guidelines are provided in the Army-issued Army Regulation 700-84, Issue and Sale of Personal Clothing.


What Is DA Form 3078 Used For?

DA Form 3078 is used for providing accountable documentation of clothing items issued to enlisted personnel. Army Military Clothing Stores (AMCS) must also maintain copies of DA Form 7000, Delegation of Authority - Army Military Clothing Stores, for commissioned officers. The list of main and additional authorized clothing allowances is provided by the Common Table of Allowances (CTA) 50-900.

DA Form 3078 contains detailed reasons for the original issue of clothing and Army Service Uniform (ASU). The form must have orders attached to it. In case the soldier is a member of the Army National Guard (ARNG) or the U.S. Army Reserve (USAR), clothing supply personnel can be contacted via the Kentucky Logistics Operation Center.

Female soldiers are authorized to wear the maternity ASU during the last stages of pregnancy once the regular uniform is no longer appropriate for the condition. Maternity ASU consists of a maternity shirt, a skirt, slacks, and a tunic as listed in the CTA 50-900. These uniforms are maintained for 3 years and are excluded from the supply system.

After obtaining certification of pregnancy, the unit supply sergeant or specialist is required to:

  1. Check the current uniform price.
  2. Complete DA Form 3078 with the following statement in Block 30: "Issued as supplemental items as authorized by CTA 50-900."
  3. Attach a copy of the doctor's certification of pregnancy.
