Veterans

Post by Sandcock » Wed Jan 30, 2008 8:28 pm

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 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 centers mailroom and processing time.

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

Showed this to my dad.
He's concerned about the security of his personal information.

Mike,

I think this sight will be secure and that vets wishing to obtain a copy of their DD-214 will have to go through the normal password, ssn, etc. to log on.

I would think the Vetrans Affairs took care of busines after this incident back in May 2006:

Personal data, including Social Security numbers of 26.5 million U.S. veterans, was stolen from a Veterans Affairs employee this month after he took the information home without authorization, the department said Monday. [-X :oops:

Together, my dad and I actually went pretty far into the process of requesting his DD214. As some point, he bacame concerned that the site was put up by some guy in Argntaia or something, and we stopped.
He took the phone number and address from the site, and he might call them.

I suggest to anyone to take their dd214 to their county recorder and get it filed.
It's usually free, and they'll give you 5 free certified copies in most major cities.

I kid you not,, we went on a cruise recently, and lost my birth cert, and they took my DD214 instead.
No kidding.

Thanks, I needed a giggle today. Secure like in the data processing center in AZ that had my business credit card account compromised last year?

I'm just saying ......
