    Default Veterans, if you need copies of your DD-214's

    To all the veterans out there, if you need to get copies of your DD-214's for any reason, you start at this website. You will fill out the info, and print out two copies. One of the copies will be for you to print your name and sign it. Then you will mail that to St. Louis with in 30 days. I just thought I would pass it along.

    It can take up to 10 working days just to pull your info. So please give enough time. I got an email back saying they got my signed copy, and that they sometimes have requests up to 20,000 service members to pull records for.

    Its a long story but my mother kept all of my documents including all of my newspaper article water skiing exploits and other things like my service record
    pictures of my youth ,gf etc and she put them in a trunk in the basement.

    During a very rainy period in florida...the basement flooded and everything in the trunk was soaked and ruined.I wasnt home at the time and it there were no copies...all originals .So it was as though my whole past didnt happen .

    Years later much to my surprise I find out that the yearbook was kept in another place.I had the honorable discharge with me .

    I mine as well of been a guide or squad leader. Every time they were getting thrashed in the squad bay I would walk by with a cheese eating grin, and would be right there with them.

    you had to "order" it, it wasn't free.

    i did but only b/c like highschool yearbooks, i thought its just something you do... go through the motions. to this day i don't think i've ever even opened that damn book.
