Barry Wilkes, clerk of the courts of Liberty County, is offering a free service to all veterans living in Liberty County that enables them to file their military discharge records (Form DD-214) for permanent and safe record-keeping in the clerk’s office.
“Many veterans do not know that they can — and should — record their military-discharge records in
the clerk’s office and, therefore, have not done so,” Wilkes said. “Others may have already filed their DD-214s in another state or another county in Georgia. Regardless, I encourage any veteran residing in Liberty County to record his or her discharge records in the clerk’s office so that, in the event an official, legally recognized copy of the record is ever needed by the veteran or his or her family, it will be readily available and at no cost to the veteran or his or her legal representative. This is a free service that I am proud to offer to those men and women who have sacrificed so much in defense of those of us blessed to live in America.”
Even though Form DD-214 should be recorded at the time the veteran is discharged from military service, there is no time limit for filing.
The Office of the Clerk of Superior Court of Liberty County is at 201 S. Main St., suite 1200 of the Liberty County Justice Center.
