NEW! Veteran DD-214’s available on-line. The Wisconsin Department of Veterans Affairs has implemented two enhancements to the Veterans Benefits and Application Tracking System (VBATS). The first enables CVSO’s and their authorized staff to view and print scanned DD214s of veterans, including veterans who are not in their resident county. The second enhancement enables veterans with approved state eligibility and VBATS access to view their own scanned DD214s.
In order to start the eligibility process, a veteran should contact his or her County Veterans Service Officer.
Log into VBATS (https://services.dva.state.wi.us/WDVALogin.aspx).
Confirm the contact information and click “Continue.”
If a DD214 is available for viewing, the veteran will see a Discharge Document listing near the bottom of the Veteran Information section.
Click the “View PDF” link.
To print the DD214, right-click the image and then click “Print” from the menu.
