Army filter: How do I refer to a recruit in basic training in the army?
posted by SLC Mom to grab bag (10 answers total)
I need to send a letter to the commanding officer about someone in his command in basic training in the Army.
The recruit's name I was given is "PUT Doe, John A."
PUT? Shouldn't that be PVT? What does PUT mean? Is it correct?
I can go back to the person who gave me the info if I have to, but English is his second language and even if he has it written down as PUT I am not sure that I trust it.
I really don't want to send a professional letter and up sounding ignorant.
