Registering veterans discharge papers (Form DD-214) with the
County Clerk's Office ensures that a true copy of the original document may always
be obtained in the event that the original is lost or destroyed.
All veterans may register their DD-214 in the County Clerk's Office. The DD-214
may be registered by mail provided the original document provided to the veteran
is sent. There is no charge for this service unless additional certified copies
are requested. The fee for each additional certified copy is $6.00. Additional certified
copies may be requested by telephone or mail.
Why a veteran may need copies of the DD-214 discharge papers:
- Schooling- proof of discharge for dependents of deceased veterans
attending high school,
college or technical school.
