DD-214-215 Army Review Board of military corrections

10 posts in this topic

 After doing some research:

I believe this Tompkins Barracks was closed down back in March 2013 and was given  back to the German Military or the German People.?

but in my opinion records should account for every military personal that was station there during there deployment. morning reports to duty stations.

I have a few names of buddys I knew while there but no address? and have not been in contact with since I left.

Actually all I have on my DD-214 is my Vietnam service/metals, MOS ect,,,ect,,, and the dates are incorrect on it.

 It has my entry dates and my release dates.& location of separation...this is what I want corrected.

Unfortunately, I don't know why they only list imminent danger pay locations (basically deployments) in block 18 (in your case I believe it would be block 23). Technically, by the reg it is allowable to list all OCONUS assignments, it's just that the transition centers usually can't be bothered unless the Service member insists. Another suggestion for proving service in Germany would be your 2-1, or the citation if you received an ARCOM or AAM for your service time there.

If there are errors on your 214 (and you have copies of documents supporting this), you can send a request (internet search for an SF-180 and be sure to ink sign it) and the supporting docs to the Army Human Resource Command HR Service Center (also an internet search for email and/or phone number). The case will come to myself or another analyst in my section, but be aware that there is a wait of 60-90 business days at minimum (sorry, there's only 7 of us servicing every request type for the entire population of Army veterans, retirees and family members). Hope this helps!

The title of your post made me think of this... as a side note to yourself and any others that read this post, please ensure that all (Army) requests for corrections of any sort (with the exception of discharge upgrades) are submitted to Army HRC first. If you go directly to the Army Review Board/Board of Corrections without having been sent there by HRC, your request will sit in the queue, then be closed without action because you have not exhausted all of your administrative remedies. Just an fyi to save time and effort!

yes I agree

However I do get the response back from the Army review boards of military records.  from Arlington Va.  they are the ones that stated without the correct evidence they could not make a change.

so I think my orginal request was sent in to the HRC

 but the other request you could be very will correct  and that's what I think is happening,  the request is just laying there and probably been closed out  b/c I ain't heard a word from anyone in 2 years now.

I think I will just give up  its not that important  but just for family line to see where I served.
