How do I request a DD214 for someone else?

The National Personnel Records Center (NPRC) can only release limited information from the Official Military Personnel File (OMPF) to the general public, meaning that you are not the veteran in which the records are about, are asking about a veteran who is of no relation to you or seeking information about a veteran who is a relative, but for whom you are not the next-of-kin. Next-of-kin is considered the un-remarried widow or widower, son, daughter, father, mother, brother or sister of the deceased veteran. Information can be obtained by visiting the National Personnel Records Center’s website.
