Recordation of Military Discharges

The County Clerk’s Office records Honorable Discharges and Honorable DD-214’s free of charge. Recording these important papers affords Veterans the security of knowing that their discharges are permanently on record within the Clerk’s Record Room. All documents are considered confidential and can be accessed by only veterans or their family members.

DD-214's are not considered public record and can not be viewed by the general public
