Access DD-214 On-Line
eVetRecs: Request Copies of Military Personnel Records
Info - you can now access your DD-214 on-line. Please pass this information on to retired military personnel you may know.
The National Personnel Records Center has provided the following website for veterans to access their DD-214 online:
This may be particularly helpful when a veteran needs a copy of his DD-214 for employment purposes. Please see the details below.
The National Personnel Records Center 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 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.
The new web-based application was designed to provide better service on these requests by eliminating the records center's mailroom processing time.
Also, 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.
Veterans and next of kin may access this application at:
Info - you can now access records on line - NOT
You can not access records on line. You can fill out a request on line and they will send you one. Geen there, done that.
Thanks for the info. just requested mine again lost the other copies.
Been not Geen, need more coffee
I did all this and received notification that there was at least a 6 month backlog.
We'll see if they can get it right.
In my experience with the U.S. military personnel system, this is lightening speed.
Great- I'm down to my last 50 copies (in a box in the attic).
I tried this to get my fathers service records from WWII.
Army Air Corps.
It's been a looong time waiting.
The only thing avaiable online are the enlistment card data.
Since I don't know what wing or group that he served in, I'm down to waiting for his separation form as well.
He was a bomber pilot.
He was shot down, but evaded capture, and again I can't find an E&E report on it at Maxwell, but they are still looking.
I've posted on most of the online forums. - nobody knows him. you would think that he never existed.
It could take years, if ever, since the 73 fire in St. Louis destroyed most of the records.
Love your profile page
Thanks for the link. Took about five minutes to complete the form and fax the signature certification. Should get it in the mail and will bookmark this to let you know how long it took.
With records fire years ago my records went up in smoke.
- nobody knows him?
Not hardly. The problem in the military is that people travel in a small circle of friends. A bomber crew would know each other but get outside the crew and each section of job specialties would no most of the same group. Gunners, Pilots R/T operators etc.
Somebody in a small ship may know most everybody (anybody out there from a DD, Etc?) A guy could have been known/remembered just by his nickname.
Keep looking, the info/links/reunions are out there somewhere
Good post. Good link.
Just copied the signature page(s). MY 214 is around the house somewhere. Doesn't hurt to have another copy handy.
I'll keep looking, and waiting.
Funny that you should mention nicknames.
His crew called him "shoe."
