The DD Form 214, also known as “Certificate of Release” or “Discharge from Active Duty”, is generally referred to as a “DD 214”. This is a document of the United States Department of Defense, issued upon a military service member’s retirement, separation, or discharge from active duty in the Armed Forces of the United States (i.e. U.S. Army, U.S. Navy, U.S. Marine Corps, U.S. Air Force, U.S. Space Force, U.S. Merchant Marine and the U.S. Coast Guard).
National Guard and Reserves
Upon completion of National Guard and Reserve time, you DO NOT recieve a DD214, instead, you receive a NGB22. If your “home of record” was Illinois at the completion of your service, use our Discharge Request form and tell us in the comments that you need your “NGB22.” If you did not reside in Illinois at the time of your discharge from the National Gaurd or Reserves, contact the State Veterans Agency where you lived at that time.
Certified Discharges
We have Federally Accredited Veteran Service Officers with the authority to certify and seal various Federal documents including DD form 214. As a matter of practice, we will certify all discharges we mail. If you are receiving a digital or faxed copy which you require certified, please let us know in the Discharge Request form comments section and we will certify the document on the front side.
Out of Country Requests
In order to prevent fraud and to protect the security of protected information, we DO NOT mail or fax outside of the United States and it’s Territories. If you are a Veteran residing outside the US, please contact the National Personnel Records Center to obtain your DD214. Click here to visit the NPRC website.
