Thread: Discharge Certificate

I am not sure if this is the right spot for this post but here goes. I got out of the Corps in 2001 after six years of honorable service. I remember being told that after you complete your inactive reserve time you will get a Honorable Discharge Certificate. I have a lot of friends that have this but I never recieved mine. I did not think it was a big deal for a long time but if it is possible to get one I would really like to have it. Does any one know what I am talking about? One of my buddies has one and it is a very nice certificate that he has in a frame on his wall. If anyone can can help me with this it would be much appreciated.

You might want to try and contact MOBCOM to see if they can issue you one. I'm still finishing my 3 years inactive service in IRR after my 5 years active so hopefully I'll get my certificate next year!

Had mine framed and hanging on the wall since Dec 1980. The one certificate I am very proud of. Got it in the mail about a month after the end of my IRR status. SF

They generally mail those to your "last known home of record". If you moved and did not keep them informed, they mailed it with instructions to "do not forward". I guess they figure that if you want yours you'll contact them eventually.
I think that if you will look at your release from active duty papers, you'll find a statement that you are responsible to keep them updated as to your current address. Most of us don't hear, read or remember that though, but it is there. I'd say it's probably tucked away in your file somewhere in the archives now.
Oh and rest assured, you will get it.

I have two certificates hanging on my wall. All the rest are in my "I love me" book. The two certificates are my dads Honorable discharge (Marine Corps) and My final one from when I retired. Next to them are pictures of when we both went through bootcamp. Not much difference other than his is black and white. I also have our dogtags hanging over the Honorable Discharge certificates. He gave me his tags when I graduated from bootcamp. He left the Corps back in 1957.
