Received from NPRC:
US veterans and servicemen or women may now order their discharge paperwork (DD 214) via the online interface set up by the NPRC in St. Louis.
Family members of deceased veterans may also use this new feature. The new feature is an enhancement of the long-standing ability to order personnel records, unit summaries and awards from NPRC NARA.
The time to receive record requests has dramatically dropped, averaging about 8 weeks. Replacement awards delivery has also improved over previous decades: some of our visitors report only a couple of months lag time for receipt of the requested awards.
NOTE: We suggest using the EVet Records version to help speed the process.
