Draft a Memo

What do you use a memo for? Use the memo for internal Coast Guard (i.e., between offices and field units), Department of Transportation (DOT), Department of Defense (DOD) units and all other federal agencies on official matters.

What SSIC subject group does Operations and Readiness fall under? 3000-3999
What date do you use on correspondence? Type or stamp the date on the same day the correspondence is signed. Leave out the date when preparing correspondence that may be signed on a later day or in another office.
What date format is preferred? Follow day-month-year order w/out punctuation, abbr the month in three letters with only the first letter capitalized, and use two or four digits for the year (3 Sep 97). Variations are perm for date stamps.
When using dates in text, what is the format? Abbreviate months and years in any heading of a memo. In the text, spell out months and years (3 March 1997). In the text, the year may be omitted if it is understood (our meeting on 9 April).

Who do you address correspondence to? Address correspondence to the office or commanding officer of a unit. Be consistent in using staff symbols, or titles in the To, From, and Thru lines. For example, if you use staff symbols in the “To” line use them also in the “From.”
