Jackson County Recorder Announces New Veteran Discharge Records Process

(BROWNSTOWN) – Jackson County Recorder, Amanda Lowery, recently announced a new process for Veterans seeking copies of their discharge records.  

The Indiana Department of Veterans Affairs (IDVA) website, www.in.gov/dva, is home to a new application process for requesting copies of service member’s discharge records recorded with the Recorder’s Office. 

Information about how to make a request can be found under the DD 214 tab on the IDVA website.

Authorized requesters may utilize the online system when making the request or they may go to the Recorder’s Office for assistance in filling the form.  A photo identification is required when requesting a DD 214 and when picking records up from the Recorder’s Office.

“All requests for service records housed in our office will now use this system to track and process inquiries.  This new process will not only provide greater privacy for veterans, but it will also provide greater protection of the information contained in the documents,”  said Lowery.

For more information about these changes or for general questions about the recording of Veteran’s service records in the Recorder’s office, please contact Amanda Lowery at the Jackson County Recorder’s Office at 812–358-6113.
