Military Discharge Records


The Lake County Recorder's Office files and maintains

Military Discharge Records (DD214). There is no fee for

recording or obtaining copies of these records.

When a person leaves military service, they receive a DD214

document.  Military service organizations strongly suggest

recording the DD214 to ensure easy availability of the

certified copy in the event that the original would get lost or


Due to recent privatization law changes, application must

be made by the veteran along with photo I.D.

in order to obtain copies of a DD214. 

Additional assistance can be provided by contacting the

Lake County Veteran Services Officer at (218) 834-8326.
