Military Personnel Records Available Online
You may now request copies of military personnel records, including proof of service (DD Form 214), through the National Personnel Records Center’s “VetRecs” system on the Internet via www.archives.gov/veterans/military-service-records. Military veterans or the next of kin of deceased, former military members are eligible to use this system. Next of kin include a surviving spouse who has not remarried, father, mother, son, daughter, sister or brother. All others must complete Form 180, which is available for download here. Designed to improve service requests by eliminating mail-processing time, this Web-based system is user-friendly with prompts for easy navigation of the four-step system. Once the customized request is complete, users are required to print, sign and date the signature verification portion of their form and mail or fax it to the records center. Failure to submit a signature verification form within 20 days of entering a request will result in the removal of that request from the system.
