Military – Recording of Certificates of Honorable Discharge (DD214)

Recording Certificates of Honorable Discharge (DD214)

When an individual separates from military service, they receive a DD214 Form (military separation document). The military service organizations may suggest recording the form to ensure easy availability of a certified copy of the document if the original were to become lost or destroyed. However, the Clark County Recorder's Office would like to make you aware of the following before doing so:

  • The Recorder’s Office is a public record office, which means anyone can view your recorded document.
  • All records are available to the public to view and purchase copies.  NRS 247.090
  • Once a document is recorded, it becomes an official record and CANNOT be unrecorded.
  • Recording your DD214 Form is not mandatory.
  • If you elect to record your DD214 Form, as a courtesy, the Recorder’s Office does not charge for the recording.
  • Social Security Numbers are redacted prior to the release of the document for public viewing.
