The Department of Veterans Affairs—the VA—operates many programs that provide financial, medical and other assistance to veterans throughout their lives.
If applying for a VA benefit for the first time, you will need a copy of your service discharge form (DD-214, DD-215, or, for WWII veterans, a WD form), which documents your service dates and discharge. If you do not have these you can contact the National Archives at 1-866-272-6272
Your service discharge form should be held in a safe location and accessible by you, your next of kin or your designated representative.
