    The DD Form 214 is a document of the United States Department of Defense, issued upon a military service member's retirement, separation or discharge from active-duty military.

    The full name of the document is "Defense Department Form 214", however, the name is often shortened to be called a DD 214. It is also commonly referred to as "Discharge Papers", but this is a misnomer, because a person must serve a term of no less than eight years of military duty, and the time they select Active, Reserve, or National Guard is counted against this limit. When a person completes their contract, they are issued a DD 214, with the Army being the only service to give it to their service members before they go on terminal leave (final vacation usually serving as a job hunting period). Other services must wait until after their separation date to receive their DD 214. After the eight year service obligation has expired, the servicemember receives a discharge certificate, which is accurately coined "discharge papers", and proves the veteran has served his or her service obligation.

    Never served, I felt it was better for me to support the troops and the country by increasing the tax-payer base.

    Discharge papers from the military. Hmmmm. I saw on http://www.dd214.us/ that I can get copies of "close relatives" form. Why would the military allow this unless the relative had passed away. My father was drafted into the Navy and my sister is retired army. I don't even want to know.
