DD Form 460 - Provisional Pass.
a. The purpose of the provisional pass is to allow military personnel, with valid travel reasons,
to get to their units. There are specific conditions which authorize you to furnish the provisional pass to
armed forces personnel. The DD Form 460 is used for the following types of personnel: absentees
(AWOL) whose detention is no longer warranted; persons taken into temporary custody who would be
delayed in returning to their units; and for persons whose leave papers have been lost or destroyed.
b. Figure 1-10 is a sample of a provisional pass. You can see that PFC Anderson is a member
of Company D, 66th Medical Detachment. His duty station is Fort Mason, California. He is at Fort Sill,
Oklahoma. Anderson needs to return to his duty station for one of the reasons mentioned above.
c. On the backside of the DD Form 460, you can see the order which requires PFC Anderson to
proceed to his unit on the most direct route on the first available transportation. By signing the pass,
PFC Anderson admits receiving the order and that he understands the pass does not prevent him from
receiving disciplinary action for previous actions. The acknowledgement also means PFC Anderson
understands that failure to obey the order to return to his duty station will subject him to disciplinary
d. When filling in his form, it is important to indicate the specific activity, or unit, where the
pass was issued. In Figure 1-10, you can see that the DD Form 460 was issued at the Provost Marshal's
office in Ft. Sill. This sample pass also shows that SSG Newman issued the pass. His signature is
above his printed name.
e. The provisional pass is filled out in three copies. The original form (white) is given to the
person requiring the pass. The first copy is green, and is filled out by the issuing unit. In the sample, the
green copy would be filled at the PM Office of Fort Sill, Oklahoma. The second copy (yellow copy) is
forwarded to the person's commander.
