What does DD 214 stand for in the military?

The DD Form 214, Certificate of Release or Discharge from Active Duty, commonly referred to as a "DD 214," is a document issued by the United States Department of Defense upon a military service member's retirement, separation, or discharge from active duty in the United States Armed Forces, e.g., United States Army, United States Navy, United States Marine Corps. The form is used to acknowledge receipt of the service member's official record of duty and to provide information on any awards received or other benefits earned during active duty.

The DD 214 is issued to all eligible personnel when they are released from active duty. It is retained by the service member after they have been discharged or released from active duty. The DD 214 is also issued to family members of deceased service members. The form is available online at www.defence.gov/dd214/.

Servicemen and women can apply for up to twelve years of credit-bearing DD 214s. Each year that passes without incident will result in another year added to their record. Some issues may prevent a person from receiving additional years on their record including but not limited to mental illness, sexual misconduct, or criminal convictions. All issues related to misconduct while on active duty should be addressed through the appropriate channels within the military department concerned.

Issuance of multiple DD 214s is possible if the person was still on active duty when they were issued. For example, if a soldier was injured in action and subsequently retired, they would be issued two copies of the form.
