After discharge from the military, veterans place their military discharge (Form DD-214) on file with the County Clerk’s office, in the county in which they reside. You must bring in your original DD-214, which we will copy and return to you. Veterans receive certified copies of their DD-214 free of charge.
Military Discharges are not public records and can only be obtained by the individual (with ID), family member with a death certificate, or the funeral home. You may order the record in person or through the mail.
Michigan Veterans Trust Fund's website is: www.archives.gov . At this site you can get copies of your original DD-214's. Their phone number is: 517-373-3130 or 517-335-1623.
