REQUEST FOR DD214
Generally the Mississippi Open Records Act permits access to a variety of information. However, such access is denied
when it would be contrary to any State or Federal statute or regulation. (Miss. Code Ann., Section 25-61-11 (1972)).
Although the Mississippi State Veterans Affairs Board is authorized to maintain the DD 214’s of members of the
military, who have separated from service, federal law restricts access to such personnel, medical or similar files.
Copies of DD 214’s are available to Veterans and next-of-kin of deceased Veterans. Next-of Kin are the widow or
widower, son or daughter, father or mother, brother or sister of the deceased Veteran. Authorized third party
requestors, e.g., lawyers, doctors, historians, etc., must submit request for copies of a DD 214 from individual records
with the Veteran’s (or next-of-kin’s) signed and dated authorization.
