DA Form 4187, which is known as a Personnel Action form, is used by a soldier who wants to request a personnel action on their own behalf on the Department of the Army.
This cloud include training, reassignment, extra rations, name changes and more. The DA Form 4187 is available on the United States Army website or can be supplied by the U.S. Army personnel division administering the physical fitness test.
The more information you provide on the form, the faster you request will be proceeded and the more likely it will be to get approved.

Section 2: must be filled out if the soldier is having a change of duty. Supply the soldier's former duty, new duty and the effective date and time the change and duty will take place.
Section 3: must be checked off if a different personnel action request is being made. More than one personnel action can be requested on a single DA Form 4178. Check the appropriate personnel action for which you are requesting. You will need to write the request in the “other” column and give a description if your request does not appear as an option.
