website for veterans to gain access totheir DD-214s online:
This may be particularly helpful when a veteran need s a copy of his DD-214for
employment purposes. NPRC is working to make it easier for veterans with
computers and Internet access to obtain copies of documents from their
Military veterans and the next of kin of deceased former military members may
now use a new online military personnel records system to request
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 toprocess
the request, delays that normally occur when NPRC has to ask veterans for
additional information will be minimized . The new web-based application was
design ed to provide better service on these requests by eliminating the
records enters mailroom and processing time.
Please pass this information on to former military personnel you may know
and their dependents.
