Anonymous:what does vr stand for if not regards
Anonymous:It stands for Very Respectfully, though it seems rather uncommon
Thanks for the comment, but the previous post already gave the same answer.
It's a good idea to check dates, so that you are involved in a discussion that is current.
Anonymous:"V/R" is the convention for closing most emails within the U.S. military, and so the usage probably has been borrowed from there.
That's interesting. Is it still used if the writer outranks the receiver?
Best wishes, Clive
