How to get military records, DD-214.

There may be times that an individual for whatever reason may need to acquire military records for say the death of a family member or to confirm the background of a particular individual.  Whatever the reason, today I'm going to cover how to retrieve a certificate of discharge also known as a DD-214.  This is the sheet of paper that every veteran gets upon discharge from the military that outlines everything about their military service.  Such as the rank they held, their awards, deployments, type of discharge (honorable), and various codes that explain different details such as medical discharge, dishonorable, etc.

Companies use information like this in data aggregate software to track your buying habits down to the point they know exactly whats happening in your life based off of purchasing habits.  Ever get those convenient coupons in the mail you think everyone else in the neighborhood is getting? Think again.  Those are customized as per your recorded buying habits and sandwiched in between other less attractive coupons as to not alarm you to their tracking.
