Publicly Available Discharge Index Begriming in 2019, state law allows for any military discharge filed 62 years or longer ago to be available to the public. Below is an index of all discharges filed at least that long ago. We will attempt to add the discharge as a link once we make sure any private information, such as social security numbers, have been redacted. For now, you can search this index to find our relatives and send in a request for their record.
