In response to your question, I am the County Recorder in Riley County,
Kansas, and the DD-2l4's or military discharges are recorded in Kansas in my
office.  They are a public record.  As I understand the Ks.Open Records Law
you could not make a list of these military discharges but they are public
records for you to review in my office.  Any further questions please email
or call me.

Subject: are military discharge papers confidential?


Can anyone help me on this one?

Former military personnel can choose to place their original Form 214, Armed
Forces Separation Papers, on file with their city or town clerk.  As they
have need for copies of this certificate, we issue a certified "true copy"
attesting that the original is on file in our office.

I have a local recruiter who wants to review these certificates.  His intent
is to contact some of these individuals to see if they want to re-enlist.
He said he had been allowed to review these certificates in another
community where he had been assigned.

I am not familiar with the regulations governing Form 214.  Would anyone
know if these papers are considered confidential?  Or can I grant the
recruiter access?

Thank you!
