Certificate of Release or Discharge From Active Duty (DD Form 214/5 Series)
This final rule removes the DoD's regulation concerning the certificate of release or discharge from active duty (Department of Defense Form (DD Form) 214/5 Series). DoD has determined that the rule has no impact on the general public; rather, the rule focuses on internal DoD management and personnel matters. Therefore, this part is unnecessary and can be removed from the CFR.
