Veterans to Register DD 214


Veterans Day is an official United States Federal holiday that honors people who have served in the U.S. Armed Forces, also known as veterans.

The Gwinnett County Clerk of Superior Court Tiana P. Garner, is asking all veterans of all military branches of service to make sure their DD-214 is recorded at the courthouse. To record your DD Form 214 you will need one of the following:

  1. Copy 4 of DD Form 214; or

  2. Any copy of DD 214 with a raised seal issued by the United States National Personnel Records Center; or

  3. United States National Archives Form 13038.

Garner stated, "I have discovered that many veterans do not know about this service and did not have their DD-214 recorded. Although veterans may have recorded their DD-214 in their home town or in a county or another state far away from Gwinnett, you are encouraged to record them here as well. If your DD-214 has been recorded somewhere else and you are now living in Gwinnett County, simply bring your DD-214 conforming to one of the above three (3) requirements to the Clerk of Superior Court’s Office Deed Room located at 75 Langley Drive, Lawrenceville, GA 30046 and we will record it in our records. If there comes a time you need a certified copy, then we will be able to provide one for you and it will not be necessary to send to another county or state to obtain your record. This is a free service to all veterans that my office is delighted to offer."

DD-214 is issued by the Department of Defense when a person is discharged by the military.
