Sometimes it’s not as simple as ordering a single DD214.
We often hear from veterans who have served multiple tours during their military careers or who have left the service and returned after several years. Some even choose to join the National Guard or Reserves after their active duty commitment has been fulfilled.
Whatever the case, it may be that you received several different DD214s for each period of service, plus an NGB22 from the Army or Air Force National Guard, along with a DD256 or DD257 from the Reserve component of your military branch.
The good news?
You can retrieve all of your military discharge documents by ordering a copy of your OMPF from DD214Direct.
The OMPF is a veteran’s primary administrative file. It contains a substantial collection of information pertaining to your service, accomplishments, personal conduct, and more. It will also include all of your DD214s as well as all other military discharge documents, including any National Guard or Reserve discharge orders.
Also for National Guard and Reserve members, your OMPF will contain your military points statement, used to calculate retirement pay. (Points are accrued through active service and drill periods as well as through military coursework and training.)
Finally, some OMPFs will also contain health care information documenting a veteran’s medical treatment while in the military. Just keep in mind that the practice of filing health records along with personnel information ended in the 1990s.
Order your complete OMPF from DD214Direct for just $39 more.
Ideally, you shouldn’t need to order copies of your discharge paperwork at all if you received them initially and they are still in good condition. However, over time things tend to get lost or damaged, which means you may need to order replacement copies if you need them to provide proof of service for things like VA mortgage assistance, education opportunities, and medical benefits.
If that’s the case, you probably need those copies sooner rather than later, which means working with an expedited service like DD214Direct.com is often your best bet. To ensure you obtain copies of all your important discharge documents, DD214Direct offers the option to locate and retrieve your complete OMPF right from our simple online form.
