    DD214 help?

    Advertisements
    So DH's ETS is uber soon and he may not be able to get his DD214 for a while yet. Is this going to be a problem? I thought they HAD to get the DD214 on their last day... It's also annoying because he can't finish his school application/do VA stuff until he gets it

    The reason he won't be able to get it is that his ship is currently out to sea & his career counselor is ignoring the emails/phone calls from the office that issues the DD214 (forgot the acronym for it ). Apparently the career counselor has been lazy about submitting the necessary paperwork & the office where DH would get the DD214 said they probably won't be able to get it from the career counselor until his ship is back...like a couple weeks after his ETS date....

    Anyone know if there are going to be problems/issues (besides the school/VA thing) with him not getting his DD214 on time? I feel like we were told at TAPS that it had to happen on or before the ETS day for some reason.

    No one knows? Uh oh. Just last night Dh said to me "I feel like something bad will happen if I can't get it on my ETS date but I don't know what it would be..."

    My stbxh just received his DD214 on Monday, I think. His actual EAS is early Aug. They gave it to him early. Had they not it would have been mailed to his new residence.

    I just read that copies can be requested, if it's lost for example. Maybe, you can go that route, until he can get his original one?

    You, also, won't be able to get a VA loan without it.

    Oh noes am I getting ALL the acronyms wrong!? I am terrible at them I should have had DH proofread this post.
    Anyways, the people who give out the DD214 have been trying to give it to DH early, but his career counselor on his ship is just totally dropping the ball on submitting some necessary paperwork... and his ship isn't here now so DH can't go bother him in person.

    We mostly need it to get his GI Bill stuff going since he's attending school this fall.

    EAS is the Marine Corps term. ETS is right for the Navy.

    errr. I don't know that requesting a copy will work, now. Since he hasn't been given an original DD214, there might not be one to make a copy of, yet. I don't know, but here's the website.

    ETA: That link isn't working. Hold on.

    Google "About Military Service Records and Official Military Personnel Files (OMPFs, DD Form 214)". The first website [www.archives.gov] should be it.

    DH didn't get his DD214 til a few days after separation because people were being lazy. And they had to make corrections which we got the copies of a whole month after he separated. I hope he is able to get it soon for his GI Bill.
