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.
