The Air Force Official Memorandum is the most common format used for written communications in the Air Force. It's used for a variety of purposes from documenting internal squadron policies to conducting official business with DoD agencies. It's also used to conduct business with vendors and contractors.
Use printed letterhead, computer-generated letterhead, or plain bond paper. The writer decides which stationery is appropriate. Type or print on both sides of the paper using black or blue-black ink. Use 10 to 12 point fonts for text.
For more information, see the example below, and refer to AFM 33-326, Preparing Official Communications, Chap 3.
