How can I find information on a Military soldier and why they are being discharged from the Army?
Optional Information: Sicily Island, LouisianaAlready Tried: Nothing yet... This is my first try
Unfortunately you can not. Infomration on living veterans and active duty soldiers is confidential and can not be released to third parties without the soldiers signature.
An employer can have a background check done that includes a military record reveiw, where this kind of thing can be discovered; but in that situation, the employer has to have a release signed by the Soldier, the same release that everyone signs when they get hired by a company who does background and credit checks.
It would be a violatin of the federal law.
Employer may have a soldier provide a copy of ther DD214 for employment, but that means the soldier is voluntarily giving the document up.
It would be a violation of the privacy act and othe federal regulations to disclose this infomration without the soldiers signature.
Having said all of this; private detectives have contacts and ways and means of finding these things out. YOu may contact a private detective and hire them to get the information.
Army First Sergeant: military sourced training in UCMJ, Status of Forces Agreements, D&A, etc.
Reply to EMJ1219's Post: Thanks for your reply. I will be in contact with my lawyer tomorrow in order to get him to contact the Military to find out this information for me. Is there anything that you can tell me to tell him that might help him in getting this info? Who does he need to contact with the Army and what does he need to ask for?
