The following information is courtesy of Redcatcher Association, Inc. (Redcatcher – 199th Light Infantry Brigade). It’s official; DD-214’s are now online.  The National Personnel Records Center (NPRC has provided the following website for veterans to gain access to their DD-214’s online:  http://vetrecs.archives.gov/ or try http://www.archives.gov/veterans/military-service-records/. This may be particularly helpful when a veteran needs a copy of his DD-214 for employment purposes.  NPRC is working to make it easier for veterans with computer access to obtain copies of documents from their military files.

Many 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.

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.  The new web-based application was designed to provide better service on these requests by eliminating the records centers mailroom and processing time.  Please pass this information on to former military personnel you may know and/or their dependents.
