The first step of completing the pay application is completing the DD 108. This form is very simple to complete. The Soldier will only need to complete blocks 1-8.
Blocks 9 – 12 is for service before 1 JULY 1949.
You will not need to fill in Blocks 13-15 and 16-17. You will only need to place a simple comment in block 14. The comment in block 14 should read “see attached 5016”. You do not need to transcribe all the dates and points from your DA 5016 onto the DD 108. That is the reason for the comment placed in block 14.
