Military Personnel and Dependents
The National Personnel Records Center (NPRC) has provided the following website for veterans to gain access to their DD-214's online:
NOTE: The DD 214 form is not online- the request form is. The good news is, this may shorten the time it takes to get a copy of a veteran’s DD214.
Military veterans and the next of kin of deceased former military members may now use a new online military personnel records system to request documents.
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.
