Request Your Military Report of Separation, DD Form 214;
Official Military Personnel File (OMPF);
Veteran Medical Records

This page is only applicable to veterans and next of kin.

If this is an urgent request, we suggest you contact the NPRC directly at (314) 801-0800. They will make every attempt to meet your needs. However, don't expect a miracle, and even after submitting an emergency request, plan on a two week delay.

Veterans may use the National Archives "eVetRecs" on-line request to request their records. This is the fastest way for veterans or next of kin of deceased veterans to obtain their military records. Records are generally received within three weeks of the request. The request form can be found at the: United States National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) website.

Only a veteran or their next of kin (defined by law as a "surviving spouse that has not remarried, father, mother, son, daughter, sister, or brother") may request a certified, complete copy of a Report of Separation (DD Form 214) for a veteran.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION For ARMY personnel discharged November 1, 1912 to January 1, 1960 and AIR FORCE personnel discharged September 25, 1947 to January 1, 1964 (with names alphabetically after Hubbard, James E.)
80 percent of the Army Service Records and 75 percent of the Air Force Service Records for personnel serving during this time were destroyed by fire in 1973. The National Records Center will attempt to reconstruct the service records using alternative sources and can usually verify military service and provide a Certification of Military Service. This Certification can be used for any purpose for which the original discharge document was used, including the application for veterans benefits.
