Preliminary Loss Reports (PLRs)

About Preliminary Loss Reports (PLRs)

PLRs are intended to be used as an engagement tool for leaders to discuss the hazards and trends impacting Soldier safety and readiness. A PLR contains only basic information, as the investigation is ongoing, but provides sufficient background to allow leaders an opportunity to communicate risk at the Soldier level.

A 26-year-old Sergeant assigned to the Army National Guard, Camp Mabry, Texas, in an inactive-duty status died in a PMV-4 mishap in Fort Worth, Texas, at local. When the Soldier did not report to first formation, the chain of command contacted the Soldier’s sister, who was able to receive a location from his phone. The detective assigned to the case confirmed the Soldier was involved in a fatal vehicle mishap. The specific circumstances of the mishap, including the mishap sequence, use of seat belt and speed or alcohol as contributing factors, are unknown. The unit/safety points of contact are waiting for law enforcement to release its final report.

Since FY19, the Army has lost an average of 35 Soldiers a year to PMV-4 mishaps. This mishap was the 12th fatality of FY24 and above the number of fatalities for the same time last year.
