Skip to comments.VANITY: Veterans, DD214 Question
Posted on 06/02/2005 4:23:25 PM PDT by rdb3
Veterans, I have a question. An associate of mine cannot locate his DD214. I looked at mine to see where another could be retrieved, but didn't see anything about that subject. Do any of you know where this can be accomplished by a phone call? If not, a web address probably would work. He needs to prove his veteran status for a fairly sensitve line of work. Thanx. HOOAH!

I think you need to contact the records center in St. Louis. SF 180 is the form you need, if my memory is correct. You can link to the Personnel Center in St. Louis from a number of military and vets' sites.
Why doesn't he/she get in touch with the base they were/are assigned to?
When I got out, they told me and my husband to have ours recorded and copied in our local county hall of records. We did.
I'm sure we've all heard about the fire that burned many of the old records...this was the insurance we were advised to get.
Here you go! Straight from the Army Web Site http://www.armyg1.army.mil/rso/quicklinks.asp
