    WTF am I doing wrong military guys

    So I have a DD214 that says I was discharged. I didnt pay attention when I got my DD214 because I knew I was honorably discharged (aka didnt fuck up that much). Come to find out that was the "short" DD214 and it doesnt say, the long does. So I asked a second time for my military records "long form" and got my entire military records but not the "long" DD214. The last page says I was honorably discharged but its not the DD214 most agencies ask for. They only have two options, I've asked and got both but not the "long dd214".

    WTF am I asking wrong
    No good story was ever started with....Well we were drinking milk and.........

    Contact your local Veterans Service Officer. They are supposed to help former military people with any service related needs. Every county has one.

    The Nevada Department of Veteran’s Affairs is a resource also. Nevada is making a big effort to be very veteran friendly and help in any way they can.

    I wish yours was the only bad dd214 story I ever heard. Happens a lot.
    Some people are as useful as a football bat.

    its been a pain mostly because I have VERY limited access to a fax machine. 1000 employees each each with their own computer if not 3 of them, hundreds of printers/copiers and not one damn fax machine at work I can find.

    You need all "Members" of your DD214.
    Member 1 and Member 4 are the ones most used.

    It's actually a DD214. One has your Discharge type and Re-enlistment status.
    The other omits these. Employers want to know you received an "Honorable Discharge" as well as your Re-enlistment code ... Some get the highest RE status and others don't.
