The primary reference for out-processing procedures is contained in AR 600-8-101, Chapter 3 and DA Pam 600-8-101, Chapter 3.

The DA Form 137-1 (Unit Clearance Record) and the DA Form 137-2 (Installation Clearance Record) are the two forms that will guide Soldiers through the clearing process and specify which agencies Soldiers must clear prior to departing JBLM.

The DA Form 137-1 is issued by Soldier’s servicing BN S-1 and the Out-processing section issues the DA Form 137-2. Forms printed from the Army Publishing Directorate website, are not accepted.

Soldiers may initiate the clearing process 33 days prior to the start of their leave, or 33 days prior to the separation/retirement if they are NOT taking leave. Upon initiation of the DA 137-2, Soldiers names are entered into the Installation Support Module (ISM) for pre-clearance (reducing the number of agencies required to clear in-person).
