    I retired from the Air Force last year. During one of our separation briefs, they made us create a account here:
    https://www.ebenefits.va.gov/ebenefits/homepage

    There is a lot of resources on this website, including military medical records, x-rays, create a VA claim or get your DD-Form 214...etc. Just wanted to throw it out there as an added resource.

    Thank you sir for your service and information.

    Perhaps a MOD can make your link into a great permanent STICKY link for all of us OLD reprobates.

    Time for another kick and info for Illinois vets.

    You can contact the DNR in Sppringfield,email them a copy of your DD214 & DL to receive a substantial discount on licenses.

    If you have any overseas or sea service time on your DD214, the licenses are 1/2 price FOREVER.

    I have been surprised at how many benefits/discounts (here in PA at least) are available to veterans; I used to carry a copy of my DD214 to obtain generous discounts at the local Home Depot (hey, 10% off of a lawn mower or water heater that is already on sale is a good deal)..A clerk told me to take my DD214 with me when I renew my driver's license and they will add veteran's code to the new license which is proof of vet status without carrying a copy of the DD214 around. Lots of places offer a significant discount to veterans......getting a copy of your DD214 is worth the trouble...IMHO

    Good stories about DD-214. When I went looking for mine all I got back was a DD-214 for 6 months enlisted in the Navy without pay. I went back and said "look again, please-- that 6 months was while i was waiting for and OCS berth." They finally found the real one (Vietnam era). Funny story: I have a hearing loss in one ear frm my youth. The Navy needed engineers badly, and took me as an engineer. But-- when I took my physical I passed the hearing test to be a private with a rifle, but failed the OCS hearing test. This young Navy medical corpsman said "It says here you are an engineer-- I'll bet you can figure out how my hearing test works. Want to try again?" I did, and I "passed"

    I have no real idea where my DD214 is but if push comes to shove I might be able to find a copy.
    Nothing much on it says I was a reservist, my ets date which is wrong and nothing much more
    I was in from 69-77 and left as an SFC which is to say I must have done something my country liked, Do the math I have been out for 39 years and DOD still tracks where I am in the country go figure

    Just another suggestion on your military records.

    Take ALL of them to your nearest "HOME DEPOT" and have them scanned and copied for a nominal fee.

    They did that for me + sent a copy to my son.s puter and handed me a chip with all of my records on it.

    I NEVER knew I was eligible for any benefits at all when I was discharged almost 60 years ago.

    Sure could have made a big difference in my life if I could have known that back then.

    Hoping many here will pass all of this info on to the young vets

    Thanks for the update.

    Now to correct Hardwares post.

    It should read "OFFICE DEPOT" NOT HOME DEPOT.

    I went to the county Sherriff's office to get some pistol purchase permits. I filled out the form on the computer provided in the lobby. Went into the clerk of the magistrates office to sign my application and pay my fee for 7 permits. When I finished, the secretary said I'd have to bring my DD-214 to prove I'd gotten an honorable discharge. When I got home, I couldn't find ANY of my significant papers. I used the link provided by Bad Water Bill. I received conformation of my request for copies of my DD-214 and an estimate of 3 weeks delivery. The secretary at the Magistrate's said I had 2 weeks after notification to pick up my permits or forfeit my fees. Of course I got approved the next day. 9 days later my DD-214's show up in the mailbox with a big thank you letter for using the service and my service to our country. They didn't ask for a dime. WOW! Not your usual government agency.

    Do yourselves a big favour and if you are still on active duty check your personnel record for accuray. I retired from the Navy Seabees in 1992. Back then we double checked all entrees into our records and still wuold find errors and omissions where some clerk forgot that one important thing. Medical records the same , double check..
