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.
