Preliminary Loss Reports (PLRs)

About Preliminary Loss Reports (PLRs)

Preliminary Loss Reports provide leaders with awareness of Army loss and highlight potential trends that affect combat readiness. Within 72 hours of a loss, PLRs provide a synopsis of the incident: unit, date of loss, description of the activity at the time of the death. PLRs do not identify root causes of an accident, as the investigation is ongoing. Further details will be available later on RMIS (account required).

PLR 20-023 - PMV-4 Mishap Claims One Soldier's Life

A 39-year-old Master Sergeant assigned to Fort Bragg, North Carolina, died in a PMV-4 mishap 18 January 2020 in Sanford, North Carolina, at 1800 local. The Soldier was operating his private motor vehicle when he collided head on with another vehicle that crossed the median.

Since FY16, the Army loses an average of 34 Soldiers a year to PMV-4 mishaps. This was the ninth fatal PMV-4 mishap in just the first four months of FY20. While the Army is below the 13 PMV-4 fatalities during the same time period in FY19, this mishap serves as a stark reminder that PMVs continue to be the single largest cause of Soldier losses.
