Its official, DD-214's are NOW Online.

Its official, DD-214's are NOW Online.

The National Personnel Records Center (NPRC) has provided the following website for veterans to gain access to their DD-214's 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 onlinemilitary 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 centers mailroom and processing time.

Please pass this information on to former military personnel you may know and their dependents.

You can't actually SEE your DD-214 online this way, but it allows you to request it online. 

I've used this, and it works very well, the documents come pretty quickly.

NPRC ONLINE RECORDS REQUEST UPDATE 01
« Reply #3 on: May 16, 2008, 05:21:27 pm »
 The National Personnel Records Center (NPRC) makes it easier for
 veterans with computers and Internet access to obtain copies of
 documents such as their DD-214from their military files.  Military
 veterans and the next of kin of deceased former military
 members can use NPRCís online military personnel records
 system to request documents. The web-based application was
 designed to provide better service on these requests by
 eliminating the records centerís mailroom processing time. Also,
 because the requester will be asked online 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 application can
 be accessed at http://vetrecs.archives.gov . Users will be
 required to complete the application online and then
 download a signature verification document that must be signed
 and mailed to NPRC WEB, 9700 Page Avenue, St. Louis, MO
 63132-5100 or faxed to (314) 801-9049 within 30 days.  If NPRC
 does not receive your signature within 30 days, your request
 will be automatically deactivated and removed from their
 system.  A service request number will be provided for
 follow up to (314) 801-0800, if necessary. Other individuals
 with a need for documents must still complete the Standard
 Form 180 which can be downloaded from the web at
 http://www.archives.gov/st-louis/military-personnel/standard-form-180.html
 .
