Your time in the military taught you to be prepared for anything. Expect the unexpected. Plan ahead for every possible scenario. But what about after discharge day?

It seems silly that something as simple as a piece of paper can throw a wrench in those best-laid plans, but not having a copy of your DD214 when you need it can mean the difference between getting that new job or losing it to a more prepared candidate.

The same goes for sealing the deal on your dream home, or in any other situation where providing proof of military service is required—which is exactly why we started

Like you, we know the importance of being prepared.

DD214Direct is a veteran-owned business whose mission it is to simplify and expedite the search and delivery of your important documents. We eliminate the hassle of dealing directly with the government and replace it with the service and individual attention you expect when dealing with a small business.

As an independent expeditor, we know the ins and outs of the military records search process. Our team consists of experienced researchers, IT professionals, and assertive government liaisons with a long history of working with National Archives and military personnel centers to obtain DD214s and other military records for our clients. We even stand in line so you don’t have to.

(Have you been asked to provide a Member 4 Copy? Click here to find out why you actually just need a Service 2 Copy of your DD214.)

In most cases, you’ll receive your DD-214 via email in 3 to 10 business days.

Because providing your DD214 via electronic mail is not a service not offered by the government, it is one that our clients find extremely valuable—especially when time is of the essence.

Our Digital Express ensures that once we locate your records, you’ll receive a scanned copy of your DD214 by email first, and a hard copy by regular mail several days later.

Is it safe to send my DD214 via email?

Absolutely. At, we take several key precautions to protect your privacy. When you submit your personal information using our online form, that information is encrypted and transmitted to us securely.

In the same way we use sophisticated encryption technology to prevent your sensitive information from getting into the wrong hands online, we also protect your information offline.

Only those employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, our billing or customer service staff) are granted access to personally identifiable information, and that information is never shared with any outside vendors.

Veteran-owned DD214Direct helps you get the documents you need, when you need them.

Our cutting-edge technology platform and keen knowledge of government protocol and procedure allow us to deliver your documents faster than competitors. We physically stand in line at the records repository and manually coordinate your order, freeing up your time and easing your worries about whether or not you will get your DD214. Much like paying a small fee to have your taxes done by a professional, DD214Direct provides the service and convenience you’ve been hoping for, plus we make it a lot easier.

Instead of having to download, print, sign and fax your document request form, you can submit your order directly through our website with the ease of e-signature technology from a desktop, laptop or mobile device. Once we locate your DD214, we will email you a copy immediately. Finally, tracking your request through us is simple, so you never have to worry about long hold times and inconclusive answers.
