Bulloch County clerk of courts encourages veterans to register discharge forms
Placeholder Image

Bulloch County Clerk of Superior Court Heather Banks McNeal is using Veterans Day, Tuesday, as a chance to remind veterans of a free service her office offers.

She asks veterans of all military branches to make sure their DD-214 forms are recorded in the Clerk of Superior Court's Office. She emphasized that this is a free service. The DD-214 is issued by the Department of Defense when a person is discharged by the military.

"I have discovered that many veterans do not know about this service and did not have their DD-214 recorded," she said. "Although veterans may have recorded their DD-214 in their hometown or in a county or another state far away from Bulloch County, you are encouraged to record them here as well."

Veterans who have recorded their DD-214 forms somewhere else are encouraged to bring the form to the Clerk of Superior Court's Office, 20 Siebald St., in the Bulloch County Judicial Annex.

"If there comes a time you need a certified copy, then we will be able to provide one for you and it will not be necessary to send to another county or state to obtain your record," McNeal said. "This is a free service to all our veterans that my office is delighted to offer. You paid it forward for all of us. Thank you."
