there's a lot about this that I don't understand, but since Jerry stepped in I'll assume it's not as bad as it looks on the surface
the main thing that puzzles me; I'm thinking that the only thing that you need to verify when it comes to a mortgage, as it pertains to a retiree -- would be income. and a dd-214 isn't gonna do that. bank statements yes, dd-214 no.
they also get some type of award benefit letter or something along those lines, I think.
this whole thing doesn't make sense to me, but what do I know.

No lender needs to see a DD214!

Yeah, I was never asked for one...maybe if they are trying to get a VA loan? That would make sense.

Ah, got it. I really couldn't recall, it having been a very long time since I used the VA to buy a house.

When you retire, you get a " Retired" certificate. I did dot get a DD 214 at retirement. Ispeent 4 yrs active, got D 214 active duty, got DD 214 fo activation on Desert Storm. That being said, ( DD 214s are issued for active duty service, not reserve..coming from memory, I don't have the manual to check)
