Military discharge papers

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

There are some really well-informed people on this forum! So wonderful for Rookies like me to engage with all that knowledge :D

Has anyone tried to get military discharge papers while living outside of South Africa?

Any advice?

Thank you and Merry Christmas

Thanks Janneman!

I was wondering if anyone has contact details of someone at the DOD that helped them get their discharge certificate?

I don’t know about  from NZ precisely, but the information for US green card applicants is usually very reliable, and this is what it says about military records.. is this what you have tried already?

 

Military Records

Available. ....(for ww2) Application must be made to the Chief of Staff, Personnel (War Records), P/B X281, Pretoria 0001. Full name, date of birth, and S.A. identity number and military number should be furnished.

Persons who have served in the armed forces since World War II should write to the regiment to which they were attached, furnishing full name, date of birth and military number.
