official; DD-214's are NOW On-line.

> on-line: 
> <>
> This may be particularly helpful when a veteran needs a copy of his DD-214 
> for employment purposes. NPRC is working to make it easier for veterans 
> with computers and Internet access to obtain copies of documents from 
> their military files.
> Military veterans and the next of kin of deceased former military members 
> may now use a new online military personnel records system to request 
> documents.
> Other individuals with a need for documents must still complete the 
> Standard Form 180, which can be downloaded from the on-line web site. 
> Because the requester will be asked to supply all information essential 
> for NPRC to process the request, delays that normally occur when NPRC has 
> to ask veterans for additional information will be minimized. The new 
> web-based application was designed to provide better service on these 
> requests by eliminating the records center mail room and processing time.
