|You may use Standard
Form-180 to obtain a copy of
your full military records, including your DD-214.
Clicking on the SF-180 link above with take you to a PDF
copy of the form and all instructions for properly
completing and mailing. If you use SF-180 be sure to
carefully specify your records that you wish to have. I
filed an SF-180 for my records in December 2010, and
received a very comprehensive packet in early January
2011. This had my DD-214, medical records, where and
when I served, ranks, combat, medals, etc.
