ALEXANDRIA, Va. (Army News Service) -- Soldiers now can
review their personnel information on the Web in a one-page
Enlisted Records Brief.
Official photographs were added last month to the online
Officer Records Briefs, which first became available on the Web in
June. The ERBs went online in December.
MyERB and MyORB now are both on the U.S. Army Human Resources
Command (HRC) homepage at https://www.hrc.army.mil.
Just click on the "Active" link at bottom right. Then the
MyORB and MyERB links can be found in the left chimney.
The Web-based solution enables active-duty Soldiers to prepare
for promotions by reviewing their records summary via the Internet,
HRC officials said.
Army Reserve Soldiers and officers can review some of their
personnel information via the My2Xcitizen portal. Both the HRC and
Reserve portals require Army Knowledge Online accounts and
"We believe that Soldiers' access to their personnel
information is the best it's ever been with the ERB going
online," said Col. Reuben Jones, commander of the Enlisted
Records and Evaluation Center.
"If Soldiers need to make changes they should still
contact their S-1," Jones
said. "Once changes are made in eMILPO, Soldiers should see
corrections to their ERB within 24 to 48 hours."
The ERB virtually replaces two forms - the old three-page ERB
and the four-page DA Form 2-1 for enlisted personnel, officials said.
They added that the new ERB is now available for viewing 24/7 on the
EREC homepage. Similar to the ORB, the ERB contains personnel
information used to manage professional development, assignments, and
promotions such as civilian and military education, awards and
decorations, special skill,
and individual qualifications. Both documents are updated from the
data stored in eMILPO.
Currently, only the ORB includes a photo. The ERB will
incorporate enlisted official photographs from the Department of the
Army Photo Management Information System, known as DAPMIS, in a couple
of months, officials
said. The ORB site has had about 25,000 "hits" since Dec. 18
when the photos were
"It is important that everyone ensures personnel
information is accurate and updated," said Brig. Gen. Rhett
Hernandez, director of Officer Personnel, HRC. "MyORB with the
photo is another step toward that end state."
