For your future, all veterans who have been discharged, separated or retired should keep multiple copies of your DD-214 discharge paperwork. It's the most important military document in your records, for many reasons.

The DD-214 is proof of your military status, whether you are retired, separated, discharged. It also displays the nature of your discharge, and your status with the National Guard or a Reserve Unit.

Having your DD-214 form can speed your VA processes to a quick and satisfying conclusion. Fortunately, you can also get a quick replacement copy easily, through VALoans.com.

If you are a recently discharged military member who separated or retired at an overseas location, remember that your DD-214 form may be delayed overseas for up to a year before it becomes part of the National Record Center archives. If this is the case, you contact the orderly room, First Sergeant or Sergeant Major in charge of where you separated or retired and request a copy directly from your final base DD-214 Request.
