Priority of Service for Veterans

Access to Federal Form DD-214

Veterans may need access to their DD-214 from the National Archives and Records Administration for training and or employment purposes. The National Personnel Records Center (NPRC) has provided the following website for veterans to gain access to their DD-214s online:

http://vetrecs.archives.gov/ or http://www.archives.gov/veterans/military-service-records/

The new web-based application was designed to provide better service on these requests by eliminating the records centers mailroom and processing time. Military 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.

Contact the National Archives and Records Administration with any questions regarding your DD-214.
