Need a DD214 the following information will help you obtain one.

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/ 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 computers and Internet access to obtain copies of documents from their military files. 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. 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 center’s mailroom processing time.

New Scam

 

 
 To all,  an email spoofing scam is targeting individuals receiving
disability compensation from the Department of Veterans Affairs suggesting
they may be able to obtain additional funds from the IRS.  The emails look
like they are from, but are not issued by a DFAS employee.  Do not send your
personal information, copies of your tax returns or 1099s to the individual
listed in the email.  Read more at dfas.mil

Although the email appears to come from a DFAS employee and displays a dot
mil address, it is actually from a non-government email account.
The email indicates that individuals receiving VA disability compensation
can receive additional funds from the IRS.  The email states that such funds
can be obtained by sending copies of your VA award letter, your income tax
returns, your 1099-Rs, your RAS statements, and a copy of your DD 214, to a
so-called retired Colonel at an address in Florida.  Do not follow the
suggestions in the email because you will be providing a significant amount
of your personal information to a complete stranger, which could result in a
financial loss to you.  Please share this information with your fellow
Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, and Marines, military retirees and families so
they are aware of this scam.
