It’s official; DD-214s are NOW Online.
The National Personnel Records Center (NPRC) has provided the
following website for veterans to gain access to their DD-214s
This may be particularly helpful when a veteran needs a copy of his
DD-214 for employment purposes. NPRC is working to make it easier for
veterans with computers and Internet access to obtain copies of
documents from their military files.
Military veterans and the next of kin of deceased former military
members may now use a new online military personnel records system to
Other individuals with a need for documents must still complete the
Standard Form 180, which can be downloaded from the online web site.
Because the requester will be asked to supply all information
essential for NPRC to process the request, delays that normally occur
when NPRC has to ask veterans for additional information will be
minimized. The new web-based application was designed to provide
better service on these requests by eliminating the records centers mailroom and processing time.
Please pass this information on to former military personnel you may
know and their dependents
