Obtaining Military Records:

Anyone discharged from the service has a DD-Form-214. This is an official military document that lists their service information, including their wars, battles and awards. You loved one's DD-214 has some, if not all of his or her medals and awards listed on it. This document can be used as a reference in finding out what medals, ribbons and badges to ask for on your CJM Certificate of Service.

Normally we would recommend you contact the National Personnel Records Center for a free copy, but there are many reports on the Net that the NPRC is taking many weeks to perform record retrievals.

Military personnel records can be used as a valuable tool in genealogical research.

Most veterans and their next-of-kin can obtain free copies of their DD Form 214 (Report of Separation) and other military and medical records through the National Personnel Records Center.
However, There are many reports on the Net that the National Personnel Records Center is taking many weeks to perform record retrievals.

DD-214: We do not require you to have your DD-214 to get your CJM Certificate of Service. Over the years many of our veterans have at some point lost their DD-214 and other military memorabilia through house fires, moving, etc. Some of our servicemen cannot replace them.

NOTE: If we have any question as to the validity of someone’s claim we reserve the right to ask for the DD-214.

Records Center Fire:

There was a fire in 1973 at the National Personnel Records Center (St. Louis, MO) that destroyed approximately 16-18 million Official Military Personnel Files. You can find out more HERE.

Other Sources to Request Military Service Records:

American War Library

Veterans' Service Records - National Archives and Records Administration

To retrieve your records in a reasonable time-frame we recommend that you contact a research company. We know of Touchstone Research, which will retrieve your records within a week.

Veterans and Service Members! ~ Resubmitting info. for your DD-214: We know the DD-214 is often lacking in your complete service dates, awards, battles and operations and other pertinent info. You may need this someday for disability or other veteran's benefits. It would be good to get this recorded ASAP while you still have your info. at hand. If you would like to amend or change your DD-214 or other military records go to this site and follow the links for the forms you need. https://ebenefits.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/478/~/amend-or-change-dd-214-or-other-military-records Please note: we have been told that they are sticklers for giving you a hard time. You must be persistent- your future may depend on it.

Family Members: You might tell your loved one that someone in your family is doing a geneaological research on the family and ask them to write out their military information including their rank, rating mark if needed for the navy or coast guard, wars or battles they fought, service dates, and their medals, ribbons and badges. You can use our order form as a guide, but don't let them see it. This is the easiest way, providing you can do it in such a way they don't suspect anything.

Also: Check our Commemorative Medals Page to see what additional medals and awards your loved one might be eligible for. We have included the info on who can receive these medals along with the images. Commemoratives were developed many years after the events of the wars, so your loved one may not know they are available and that he or she is eligible to receive them. This is especially good if you only know of 3 or 5 medals they have for their certificate and want to have the full six to balance out your certificate design and display as much as you can of their experience. If you know your loved one's wars or service dates and govt. issued awards we can help with this.

Give your loved one the Perfect Gift

Shows how much you really care!
