Request for DD FORM 214 Copies

There has been a lot of conversation among our membership recently concerning the request to provide copies of DD214s to the Society. It is our purpose to try to explain why the Board of Directors believes this is necessary and how we all can comply with this request without disclosing unnecessary personal information.


The 27th Infantry Regiment Historical Society, Inc. is a tax exempt organization under Internal Revenue Code Section 501(c)(19). Tax exempt veterans organizations under 501(c)(19) are required to maintain a high percentage of “war veterans” among their membership. The attached letter explains that, while they are not required to demand copies of DD214s in all cases where a veterans’ organization is being audited, examiners may do so. If The Society is audited, we must be able to provide those copies in a timely manner in order to prove the percentage of “war veterans” among our membership. If we are unable to do so, we could be faced with fines of $1,000.00 per day or lose our tax exempt status.


Accordingly your Board of Directors believes that we must have copies of DD214s on file so we can comply with such a demand. Failure to do so could be devastating to the Society. In order to protect your personal information, it would be a good idea to make a photocopy of your DD214 and blot out your Service Number, your Social Security Number and your Home of Record address. Then either scan or copy the edited DD214 and forward via email or snail mail to:

You can rest assured that we will digitize the document and then destroy the hard copy, so that it cannot get into the wrong hands. If you have any additional precautions to suggest, please let us know.
