After discharge from the military, veterans place their military discharge papers or DD214 on file with the County Clerk’s Office, in the county in which they reside. The Clerk’s Office will maintain a list of all DD-214’s on file. Veterans' can come into the office during working hours and request copies of their DD-214 papers.
Military discharges (DD-214) are not public records and can only be obtained by the individual (with proper ID), family member with a death certificate, or the funeral home.
Free to veterans.
