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 23-019 - Off-Duty Sports, Recreation and Physical Training Mishap Claims One Soldier's Life

A Sergeant assigned to Miami, Florida, died in an off-duty sports, recreation, and physical training mishap 24 December 2022 in Ocala, Florida, at 1430 local. The reporting unit was notified by the Florida Highway Patrol (FHP) that the Soldier was involved in a mishap involving his recreational electric ‘kick’ scooter. He was transported to Ocala Regional Hospital, Ocala, where he later succumbed to his injuries. It is currently unknown if a civilian PMV was involved in the incident, however, due to the severity of his injuries, it is assumed. The exact cause and circumstances of the mishap is still under investigation by the FHP.

Since 2018, the Army has lost an average of 11 Soldiers a year to off-duty sports, recreation and physical training mishaps. This was the second off-duty sports, recreation, and physical training fatality of FY23 and above the number of off-duty sports, recreation, and physical training fatalities from this time last year.
