Don’t be scammed into paying a fee for copies of records available for free!
The Army Human Resources Command alerted MOAA about a scam targeting veterans needing a copy of their separation document, the DD214.
If you need a copy of your DD214 or a family member’s DD214, go to http://www.archives.gov/veterans/military-service-records/
There are two ways to request your DD214: online and by mail/fax
- To request your DD214 online: click on ‘Launch the eVetRecs System to start your online request’. Follow the instructions in the pop-up window. The DD214 will be mailed to you after completing the form.
- You can also download a form to mail or fax your request for your DD214 by clicking on the ‘Download form SF-180 to Mail or Fax your request’. Click the link ‘Download form SF-180 to mail or fax your request’ to download a PDF of SF-180 to your computer. The return addresses for the completed form are located on page three (3) of the form.
Remember, a DD214 Record of Military Service is always free to obtain for the member and family members.
