Once a DD 214 has been recorded with the Bexar County Clerk’s Office, a copy can be obtained from the Bexar County Clerk’s Vital Statistics Department located in the basement of the Paul Elizondo Tower. Aside from the Veteran, only immediate family (spouse, father, mother, son, daughter, sister, or brother) may request a copy.
In order to request a copy of a DD 214, the County Clerk's Office requires proof of age and identity in the form of a valid government issued or state issued photo identification. Information about the veteran is also required. The minimum information that is needed is the veteran’s full name. While the year of discharge is not required, it is extremely helpful in processing the request.
