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

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

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

Wow… then our small exchange was all messed up considering that (a MSG) closed with V/R and I close up door my answer to his email with “Respectfully” - as I always do.So that should have actually closed with simply an R/ and I should have closed with the V/R. Ns will store that in mind. For currently on my emails will certainly close with “Very Respectfully” or “V/R”.

Funny thats never come up. Yet not as well suprising feeling all mine emails indigenous superiors room usually an extremely informal. Prefer “whats up! this is what you require for next week… bla bla bla”Thanks guys!!

Very Respectfully?

Read the Kinsey Milhone Alphabet secret series. Lock all end in the style of a exclusive detective’s last report at the conclusion the a case, including the close up door “respectfully submitted.”

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

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

The united state Air force guide to professional communications, the Tongue and Quill (Warning: PDF), just recommends “Sincerely” together a closing, and also only for a professional an individual letter. Memoranda the any type (which in my experience is the primary type of on-paper communication) don’t usage a closeup of the door salutation at all.


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

I understand v/r is really commonly offered in the USN. Ns have also seen the creeping into RCN intake in current years.


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

Must it is in a army thing. The united state Air pressure uses the also.

This is certainly a U.S. Navy thing. Juniors would close a memo, now an e-mail of course through “Vr”, an interpretation Very respectfully. Seniors would close a email to a junior with an “R,” an interpretation respectfully. Still offered today in the Navy, and was provided 30 years earlier when I very first joined. Occasionally you’ll check out a “Wr,” an interpretation With regard from a an elderly to a junior, yet much much less often.
