Service Records - DD214

For a copy of your service records (if you are no longer in the military) or if you are the next of kin of a decesed service member:
You can now request your service records online at The National Archives using eVetRecs. If you are the next of kin of a decesed veteran you will need proof of death.

For Active Duty, Inactive Reserve, National Guard, or Prior WWI:
See tables at end of page.

For a copy of your DD-214:
A DD-214 is issued to military members upon separation from active service. DD-214's were issued to separated Servicemembers beginning in the 1950's. The term "DD-214" is often used generically to mean "separation papers" or "discharge papers", no matter what form number was used to document active duty military service.

To request a copy of your DD-214 use Form SF 180 or submit your request online at eVetRecs.

Who may request a copy?
Release of information is subject to restrictions imposed by the military services consistent with Department of Defense regulations and the provisions of the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) and the Privacy Act of 1974. The service member (either past or present) or the member's legal guardian has access to almost any information contained in that member's own record. Others requesting information from military personnel/health records must have the release authorization in Section III of the SF 180 signed by the member or legal guardian, but if the appropriate signature cannot be obtained, only limited types of information can be provided. If the former member is deceased, surviving next of kin may, under certain circumstances, be entitled to greater access to a deceased veteran's records than a member of the public. The next of kin may be any of the following: unremarried surviving spouse, father, mother, son, daughter, sister, or brother. Employers and others needing proof of military service are expected to accept the information shown on documents issued by the military service departments at the time a service member is separated.

How much does it cost?
There is no charge for most services provided to members or their surviving next of kin. A nominal fee is charged for certain types of service. In most instances service fees cannot be determined in advance. If your request involves a service fee, you will be notified as soon as that determination is made.

How to dispute/correct records:
If you need to dispute something within your record or have a correction that needs to be made, visit the Board for Correction of Naval Records
