Dear Editor,

I’m aware that many units already include a DA Form 5990-E, Maintenance Request Electronically Generated Form (EGA) in their service packets, along with other required forms. But an update to DA PAM 750-3, Guide to Field Maintenance Operations (Apr 23) now makes this form mandatory. Take a moment to review page 31, para. 7-2.c., of the PAM.

Editor’s Note: Mr. Whitmire, thanks for the heads up about the new requirement.
Soldiers, keep this new change in mind when you’re submitting service packets.
