If you are not in possession of an original or certified copy of your DD214, a duplicate can be obtained by requesting and completing a Standard Form 180, Request Pertaining to Military Records. This form is also available in the Town Clerk's office or by calling 1-800-827-1000. If you are the veteran OR the veteran's next of kin, you may also begin the request process on the National Archives website.
If you have already filed your DD214 with the Town Clerk's office and are in need of a certified copy, you may stop into the office or submit a request by mail using this form.
