How To...

How to get a copy of your DD214
Veterans can retrieve the DD-214’s online The National Personnel Records Center (NPRC) has provided the following website for veterans to gain access to their DD-214's online: (If you are having access problems ( Note: Currently requires IE 4.5 - 8.0 and there are know issues with MS Windows XP))
http://vetrecs.archives.gov/ 

This may be particularly helpful when a veteran needs a copy of his DD-214 for employment purposes.  NPRC is working to make it easier for veterans with computers and Internet access to obtain copies of documents from their military files. Military veterans and the next of kin of deceased former military members may now use a new on-line military personnel records system to request documents.

How to get a Burlington County Veterans ID Card 
www.co.burlington.nj.us/upload/Sheriff/Images/VeteranIDCards.pdf

The Burlington County Veteran Services and Sheriff’s Department have partnered to provide Burlington County Veterans with a free Veteran Photo ID Card. These cards identify veterans who served in our armed forces, and received an honorable discharge following their military service. These cards give veterans the ability to receive discounts or benefits offered by stores and restaurants. Many establishments offer 10% or more in discounts to our vets, who have had to carry their DD214 discharge document to prove their military status. 

How to get Veterans identification on your New Jersey Driver's license/License Plates
The law is scheduled to take effect on March 1, 2015, to give the NJ Motor Vehicle Commission(MVC) time to work out details of the new program, which will also supply veterans identification cards to vets who do not have driver's licenses.   Required Documentation and procedures will be added when published by NJ MVC.    http://www.state.nj.us/mvc/Licenses/vet.htm
