My best guess is the it’s the “TO/FROM” initials, on a much less formal basis. Does your first name start with V and his with an R, or angry versa?

No… ns “B.N.” and he’s “C.B.”

Interesting, though, that the email the OP obtained was native a senior rank.

But I obtain emails all the moment from generals that encompass the same “v/r.” So ns htink it’s simply a usual courtesy in closing.

Wow… climate our tiny exchange was all messed up considering he (a MSG) closed v V/R and also I close up door my answer to his email through “Respectfully” - as I always do.So he should have actually closed with just an R/ and I should have closed v the V/R. I will keep that in mind. For currently on my emails will close through “Very Respectfully” or “V/R”.

Funny thats never ever come up. However not also suprising sense all mine emails native superiors room usually an extremely informal. Like “whats up! this is what you need for next week… bla bla bla”Thanks guys!!

Very Respectfully?

That.

Read the Kinsey Milhone Alphabet an enig series. Castle all end in the style of a private detective’s last report in ~ the conclusion the a case, including the closeup of the door “respectfully submitted.”

That idea didn’t last also long. Every my “informal” communication tends to end with “regards”, or “best regards”.

13 years maritime Corps, and also I never ever saw that, v/r. No doubting it, just never saw it. However then again us were in the ar a lot, not a lot of time in garrison. And also besides, reading and writing no a class many of united state took.

The united state Air pressure guide to expert communications, the Tongue and Quill (Warning: PDF), just recommends “Sincerely” together a closing, and also only because that a professional an individual letter. Memoranda the any type (which in my endure is the primary kind of on-paper communication) don’t use a closing salutation at all.


GinoC November 23, 2017, 6:45am #18

I understand v/r is an extremely commonly offered in the USN. I have also seen it creeping into RCN usage in current years.


JerrySTL November 23, 2017, 6:54pm #19

Must be a army thing. The us Air force uses the also.

Noted the this to be answered years ago, but to clarification . . .

See more: 30 Lb Vs 40 Lb Propane Tank Sizes, Travel Trailers: 30 Lb Vs

This is absolutely a U.S. Marine thing. Juniors would close a memo, now an email of course v “Vr”, definition Very respectfully. Seniors would close a email to a junior v an “R,” definition respectfully. Still offered today in the Navy, and also was supplied 30 years ago when I first joined. Sometimes you’ll check out a “Wr,” an interpretation With regard indigenous a senior to a junior, but much less often.
