This is the same process as in Florida. Florida must see a DD214 with "honorable discharge" they won't accept any other form of documentation. Unless the DD214 reflects "honorable discharge" they won't put the stamp on. They have even gone as far as to explain that a medical discharge isn't sufficient documentation unless the DD214 reflects the words "honorable discharge" I showed them 5 other pieces of documentation that reflected my discharge as honorable and I had my original preliminary DD214/15 and they brow beat me in front of the entire DMV and wouldn't listen. Finally when the hot head stopped drilling me about not knowing what I was talking about. I said, "Yeah, like I said, I have that too" handed him my DD214 and went about my business. It's a hassle! That's for sure!
