Dear Sgt. Shaft: My husband received DD256 when he was discharged from active duty in 1954. It is our understanding that the DD256 form is only for discharge from inactive reserves. He should have a DD214 from active duty according to our information. Could you please clarify? If he sends a copy his DD256 to the proper place, can he obtain the correct DD214?
Dear Sgt. Shaft: Can you please help me determine if the dog tags I have are my grandfather's from World War II in the Navy, or my father's from Vietnam in the Army? Both men had the same name. The tags are more rectangular and notched. My other grandfather who was in the Navy in World War II has oval dog tags.
Dear Sgt Shaft: Where can I receive the military medals that I received while serving on active duty.
Dear Sgt Shaft: Are all veterans entitled to burial in a VA cemetery? Thanks from an old vet.
