The DD 214 is the standard separation document of the United States Military. Previous to the DD 214 there were various other Separation Documents. They are all referred to now as DD 214. There are many versions of this document, but the general document can be examined in the copy of the DD 214 above. Do not confuse the Discharge Certificate with the DD 214, these are two separate documents. The Discharge Certificate is for hanging on your wall, it has no official status as a document to prove military service. Only the DD 214 or its replacement (Certificate of Service) is accepted by the Military, the Social Security Administration or the Veterans Administration to prove military service. The DD 214 is the document you need for verification of employment, VA loans etc. We can get any military DD214.
