1. eMILPO AND DATASTORE UPDATE: 2 MAR 2020. From HRC FSD to S1’s: We have resolved the DD93 issue.

Manually uploaded DD 93’s during the outage will have priority processing in iPERMS. If you have not manually uploaded your DD93 to iPERMS, please have the Soldier return to the S1/Human Resources Office to resubmit their DD93 to iPERMS. Also, the My SRB connectivity issue has been resolved. Soldiers can now run the My SRB report at URL: https://myerb.ahrs.army.mil/soldierLogin.do.
