Release of Military Records

The National Archives and Records Administration has outlined certain requirements for dissemination of military records, such as the DD214 form, which this office has elected to adopt.

A DD214 request form must be filled out by any individual requesting a copy from this office.

All requests for copies of DD214s must now be accompanied by a written request form and a picture I.D. Copies will only be distributed to the veteran listed or to his or her next of kin.

Lawyers, doctors, historians, etc. may request copies of a DD214 with signed authorization from the veteran or next of kin.
