Mr. Sir, It is regrettable that one of the army men under your command abused his position and power when dealing with a citizen of (area/city name). (Explain your current problem and scenario.) Because of this incident, I would like you to know about it so that such things cannot happen again. Since the soldier in question is now under investigation, I am sure that the proper action will be taken.
I am writing to tell you about an incident that occurred at our military installation. (Describe what happened.) My husband is an active duty member of the armed forces and we live on a military base. One of our soldiers approached my husband as he was walking down the street and offered him $20 if he would carry some luggage up to a room above a store here on the base. My husband told the man he could not accept the offer because he was on duty and had responsibilities back at the base. The soldier then called my husband a "(name) bastard" and threw his wallet at him, hitting my husband in the face. When my husband tried to stop the other soldier from leaving, they both left in their vehicle without stopping at any checkpoints or telling anyone what had happened.
Since my husband is an active duty member of the armed forces, we are required to report incidents like this one to our chain of command.
Respectfully, Sir or Madam, With due respect, my name is ____ (Your Name), and my employee ID is ____ (Employee IDNumber). I work in the department. (department name). The cab driver, ________ (Name of the Driver), is extremely unpleasant and irritable with all of the passengers. He has refused to take money from some people and charged others more than what they agreed to pay. I have complained several times about his behavior but it only gets worse. I hope you will take action against him because many people find him offensive.
Thank you for your time, I look forward to hearing from you.
In the address type, the officer's title should be stated in full. Make a greeting. Write "Dear" followed by the officer's title. Longer titles, such as "Lieutenant Colonel," can be abbreviated to "Colonel." Use his or her first name when writing to them personally.
If it is a formal letter, then it should be written on official stationery with the officer's logo. If it is not written on official stationery, then it should still be written in an official manner, but it should not have the officer's logo on it. For example, if you are writing a letter to a general manager of a company, then it should be written on company letterhead and should include the officer's logo at the top of the page. If you are writing a personal note to an officer, then you can write it on any kind of paper you like.
The letter should be written in English. However, if you cannot write well, then there are people who can help you out. For example, if you need someone to write a letter for you, then you can find these individuals on Google Docs or some other writing website. They will write your letter for a small fee.
After you have written your letter, you should send it using the mail service provided by your government.
In most cases, if a soldier receives a letter of concern, he or she has won. The command attempted to punish them, realizing they were wrong but yet wanting to act. If a soldier receives a letter of concern, he or she should still meet with a military lawyer to ensure that everything is in order. Then and only then can he or she start thinking about moving forward with their life.
The letter of concern is an official document from the army that tells the soldier he or she has done something wrong enough to be punished. In some cases, it can lead to more serious actions being taken against you. For example, a commander may want to remove you from your position without going through the process of court-martialing you.
It is important to remember that just because you have received a letter of concern does not mean that you are guilty of anything. It simply means that your commander believes there is enough evidence to prove that you committed a crime. This could be for one of two reasons: first, you might have done something illegal. For example, if you were arrested for drinking on duty, you would receive a letter of concern because officers think it's inappropriate for their subordinates to be drinking while on duty. Second, you might have done something improper in your role as a leader.
Complaints should be sent to a supervisor or commander in your chain of command, an IG or other relevant inspector, or any designated grievance route. FWA complaints should be directed to the Army Audit Agency (AAA), the Army Office of Special Investigations (AOSI), the security police, or any appropriate body. See the section on who can investigate you for more information.
The best way to resolve problems is through discussion with one's supervisor or manager. If this doesn't work, then there are several options available including filing an IG complaint. There are two ways to file an IG complaint: online and by mail. The process is similar for both methods so we will cover them together.
To file an IG complaint online, go to www.ig.gov/ website login with your username and password, then select "File a Complaint." Select the option for "Other" under the category of "Organization." Find the organization on the list and click on its link. You will be taken to a page with instructions on how to file your complaint. Be sure to include all relevant information such as names, dates, and places.
Mail complaints should be sent to: Chief Inspector General, Department of Defense, 7100 Executive Blvd., Suite 9-50, Arlington, VA 22230-7200.
IGs receive hundreds of complaints each year. It is not possible for us to review every one individually.

Begin addressing your letter to a member of the military by putting the person's rank, first and last names, and address in the middle of the envelope. Below the military member's rank and name, add their postal service center and box number. Mailing labels are also available at post offices, shipping stores, and online.
If you know the recipient's email address, you can also send them a message directly from the letter-writing tool on DoD Websites. Just type the email address into the field provided and click Send Email.
All letters sent to members of the military should be written on official paper with an office seal or logo, but this is not necessary for emails. Emails are considered documents and should be treated as such. They should not be forwarded along to other people nor posted onto social media sites without permission from the sender.
DoD employees have the right to privacy under the Privacy Act of 1974. As such, it is important that they not be subjected to illegal searches and seizures. Employees should take all necessary steps to ensure that their workplace emails are not being viewed by unauthorized individuals.
