Get both your DD214 and DD256 Military Discharge Certificate combo!
NOTE: Our DD256 Military Discharge Certificate is for U.S. Military Veterans only. If you are not a veteran, you do not have a *real* DD-214, and therefore you cannot
and will not be able to use a DD256 in order to obtain military
benefits or otherwise prove your military service. Some companies and
services will provide a “veteran” DD256 Military Discharge Certificate to anyone! Touchstone's DD256 Military Discharge Certificate is the only true, secure, third-party verified DD256 Military Discharge Certificate for veterans to prove their actual service.
The information on the face of the certificate is pulled directly off your DD-214, NGB22, Orders of Separation, or your other official final separation document which WE retrieve directly from the government for you. Your certificate will be created specifically for your Grade, Rating, Branch of Service, Separation Date, as well as identify the actual officer who issued you your DD214 for either Honorable or General discharge. A Discharge Certificate is NOT issued for OTH.
We cannot accept a copy of your DD214 from you, to preserve the integrity of the certificates we issue. Unfortunately, forgeries abound. We accept DD214s only from the Government itself. You'll have to provide us with the legal authority to access your records, a form you'll complete when you place your order. After we receive your record from the Government, we'll process your order and provide you with two (2) certified hardcopies of your DD214, a digitally signed PDF copy (for authenticity) which you can download from our secure server, and your personalized and verifiable Military Discharge Certificate.
Finally, anyone with a smart phone can verify that your DD256 Military Discharge Certificate is authentic simply by scanning the QR code on the lower left hand corner (try it yourself, below). This ID validation technology is not available to veterans through any other company. For confirmation of its authenticity, a digitally signed and verified copy of your DD-214 can also be quickly accessed and downloaded from your Touchstone account.
